|Mark Gilbertson hosted his grand annual autumn cocktail party at a private club here in New York almost three weeks ago and we’re just getting to it because of the avalanche of events on this season’s social calendar.
Mark’s party is strictly a cocktail reception in the old fashioned sense. A rarity these days. Not in honor of anyone, not a fundraiser for any charity. Just a great big drinks party where about 300 guests came by to see the host and visit with friends they haven’t seen or even friends they talk to every day. Mark has been hosting this kind of a party for years. He used to hold it in his Upper East Side apartment for thirty or forty friends. But over time the list has grown to the point where he needs more space.
