THE PARTY Alice in Wonderland’s fantasy world was transported to the UES for Ali Wentworth’s memoir debut, Ali in Wonderland: And Other Tall Tales. Ritzy Sotheby’s was bedecked with Cheshire Cat cocktails, oversize playing cards and chips in Mad Hatter hats. THE PLAYERS The Seinfelds—Ali was Jerry’s girlfriend “Schmoopie” in an episode—sang the author’s praises, while boldfaced fans including Sarah Jessica Parker, Mariska Hargitay and Debra Messing admired the postwar art on the walls.
