Drinking With Rich People As The Recession Lifts

Check out my hilarious new column, about my week spent toasting wealthy folk who never even knew the recession hit, and who've been carrying on in a madcap manner like there's no yesterday.

From a "Le Cercle Rive Droite de Grands Vins de Bordeaux" tasting with Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, Bonnie Fuller, Jay McInerney, and Ann Dexter-Jones to the gala art fair at the Armory to a Noel Coward exhibit at Lincoln Center, I was there to strategically find out:


*Is the recession really over?

*Did these people just sit back and laugh about it the whole time, from a careful distance?

*Why is a Bush divorcee trying to help starving children?

*And if the recession isn't over, how come the last couple of weeks have been filled with troughs of free food and obscene amounts of beverages?

BELCH!

I love how the Countess is trying to get it in with you, Michael Musto! Watch your wallet, though, chile!

Good to see you mixing with a ritzier crowd.

Maybe you'll become the new Fran Lebowitz.

BUT DON'T STOP WRITING!

Firefly was Noel Coward's property further up from his main residence in Jamaica. It has a breathtaking view.

Coward spent his last night at Firefly and is buried there.

Glad the fun's coming back--at least for some people!

I'd love to be a Fran Lebowitz who actually writes. Sounds good.
