This past Monday, the Associates division of American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra held its annual Vintage Monday, an evening of wine tasting co-chaired by Lori Freudenberger, Andrea and Ari Lefkovits, Alison and Randall Shaw and Leigh Sherman. This event attracted approximately 200 young supporters in the historic Apple Bank building at Broadway and 73rd Street. The participants sampled wines from Antinori, Koala Blue, Lambert Bridge and Recanati wineries and had the chance to bid on exciting auction prizes.

Alex Hitz celebrates his 35th birthday at Swifty's

Alex Hitz gave a birthday party for himself yesterday lunchtime at Swifty’s. Yesterday was also his birthday. He is thirty-five. Alex often gives a birthday party for himself and they’ve been written about here. They are always different. One year he gave a big fancy party for more than a hundred in a big fancy private club here in town. That was certainly the talk, as they’d say down in Atlanta where Mr. Hitz hails from.

Last year he had about sixty or so squeezed into a tiny little notch of a restaurant in the village where he imported his own silver and china (and I think maybe even the chandelier). Really, now. There were some problems with the (chicken) cuisine later on, ahem, or so I was told. That was certainly the talk too. However, Alex is a wonderful host and a very nice man to be around. So it’s always a pleasure to be invited by him. Furthermore, as you may have gathered, he likes to share the wealth. To which I say, let me at ‘im.

This year there were thirteen of us including Nan Kempner, Pat Patterson, Peter Vaughan, Brooke and Peter Duchin, Helen O’Hagan, Ellen Graham, Hiram Williams, Cynthia Kempner, Adolfo, Lisa Fine and of course, our host. We had Swifty’s gravlax for starters, then a salad and the famous Swifty’s cheese soufflé. Then out came the waiters with four large pieces of vanilla merengue cake, each with a long tall candle in it, and everybody singing Happy birthday. The merengue slices, alas only went to the birthday babies. They were: Mr. Hitz, Adolfo, Helen O’Hagan and Liz Smith who just happened to be lunching at a table nearby. All Aquariuses, those. We all helped ourselves to their merengue cake, however and we all felt like kids at a birthday which is a sensationally silly feeling in the world of these days, and therefore all the more welcome.

Happy Birthday Alex Hitz, and many many more just like ‘em for you!
