New Notable Movie

NoName Ain’t Got No Balls

I’m sorry to say it 'cause I love the guy, but pretty soon this will be literally true. If anyone read last week's blog, they would recall me mentioning NoName's vasectomy. Well, I wasn't joking. He goes under the knife in two short weeks. The one good thing about this is that the entire morning shows gets a week off beginning March 5. Thanks for taking one for the team, big guy.

Hoo’s New Hotspot

Tomorrow I’ll be heading to the grand opening of a new club called Vessel located downtown near Union Square. You may recognize the name from all the hype and you’d better believe that the Persian Prince wants to shake his ass on this trendy dance floor. I’m also giving this new hotspot the “Newsom Guarantee” meaning that if you go there enough times, eventually you’ll see Gavin Newsom in a darkened corner, making out with somebody’s wife!

Happy Chinese New Year

Louis Vuitton hosted a Chinese New Year reception at its Union Square location, featuring lion dancers and all manner of cocktails and nibbles to celebrate the occasion.

Celebrating Life

Supporters of UCSF's Foundation for Cardiac Research (FCR), which is led by leading cardiologist Dr. Kanu Chatterjee, celebrated the Foundation's work at a party hosted by Ann and Gordon Getty on Saturday night. Guests, including FCR founder Jane Logan, Walter Shorenstein, Beth Townsend and Mark Wagoner, and Therese and Malcolm Post, enjoyed a private concert by Kris Kristofferson, who credits Dr. Chatterjee with saving his life.

Lunching with Ludot

Neiman Marcus held a luncheon featuring French designer Didier Ludot's dresses on behalf of the Junior Committee for the de Young Museum. John Capizzi, VP/GM of Neiman Marcus Union Square, hosted the event with Lucy Buchanan (whose husband is the deYoung director), Kathryn Lasater and Alison Speer.
