Dick Cavett isn’t Dead

Tonight Liberation and I are off to the Creative Time Gala honoring Julian Schnabel at the forever abandoned Domino Sugar Refinery in Williamsburg (which is about to become a mixed-use affordable housing development.) I don’t want to speak too soon, but it SEEMS like it could be the gala of all galas this gala season. It’s hosted by Al Pacino, in an iconic building I’ve always wanted to break into, and has a list of amazing guests that include someone I thought was dead (Dick Cavett).


Expected guests include Laurie Anderson, Waris Ahluwalia, André Balazs, Dick Cavett, Beth Rudin DeWoody, Stavros Niarchos, Ippolita Rostagno, Tom Sachs, Lauren Santo Domingo, Vito Schnabel, Albert Hammond, Jr., Arden Wohl, Olivier Zahm, and many more
