My favorite party of the year is taking place Sunday, Dec. 3, at the Metropolitan Pavilion in Chelsea. You have to bring a toy to get in, and that toy goes to the Marines' Toys For Tots program that delivers toys to needy kids. It's been moved from Chelsea Piers, where it has been for the last two years.
I hope to see you there - it's a very noble cause and a wonderful way to welcome in the holiday season. Plus, everyone seems to have their guard down at the party, so it's also a nice way to make new friends.
