Once the London Olympics are over, we’ll go back to thinking of England only during Oscar season, but until then, we’re in the midst of two years of Anglomania. It started with the wedding of Kate and Will, and at present it’s the celebration of Queen Elizabeth’s diamond jubilee. While we don’t feel like crossing the Atlantic to celebrate—the only city worse than New York in the summer is London, even leaving aside the Olympic preparations—we’re going to pay tribute to the lady in pastel at a Virgin Atlantic-sponsored bash. (Richard Branson got knighted, haven’t you heard? He and the Queen are old pals!). It all benefits St. George’s Society of New York, which supports needy Brits in the city.
Edison Ballroom, 240 West 47th Street, 7pm; tickets and information can be found at stgeorgessociety.org/jubilee.php.
