Last night was a tough call: Were we to attend Peggy Siegal‘s viewing party for Hysteria, which promised Hugh Dancy and vibrators by JimmyJane, or the Cinema Society’s screening of Virginia at the Crosby Hotel, which promised Judd Hirsch and Shiseido facial products?
Obviously, we couldn’t make such a tough call. So we chose both!
After sitting in the back of the theater at Sunshine Cinema, where Hysteria made for a pleasant ( if slightly precious) diversion from the wet weekday. Maggie Gyllenhaal and Mr. Dancy starred in Tanya Wexler‘s period piece about the invention of the vibrator. We stuck with the crowd to the Hotel Chantelle on Ludlow, where we were greeted by champagne and Red Bull cocktails–which look dangerously like regular bubbly–leading to an accidental overdose of taurine that kept us vibrating the rest of the evening.
Then it was over to the Crosby, where the party for Dustin Lance Black‘s Virginia was still in full swing. Celebrities seemed to have a similar game plan, as we saw several of the night’s A-listers attending both events. Busy, busy, busy!
