Tootsies welcomed the last word in all things WASP, Cornelia Guest, for two days of luncheons, cocktails and signings of her new title, Cornelia Guest’s Simple Pleasures: Healthy Seasonal Cooking and Easy Entertaining, and a trunk show of her vegan handbag collection. Tony’s Catering produced delish tidbits straight from Guest’s entertaining tome, while Mary Elizabeth Hahnfeld entertained best girlfriends at lunch followed by a PaperCity-hosted cocktail (it’s what we do best). Naturally, a percentage of sales of her cruelty-free handbags and accessories benefitted Kathy Wetmore’s Shaggy Dog Rescue. Great Guests: Donna Vallone, Jill Faucetta, Christie Sullivan, Cheryl Byington, Elaine Koons, and Tootsies’ Mickey Rosmarin, Fady Armanious, and Shelley Ludwick.
