Hollywood Beckons


Once a year, I spend an evening feeling like the Los Angelina everyone dreams about being: one who rubs elbows with the stars. Previous entries here and here.

Once a year, I get dolled up and head to the Beverly Wilshire for the Alzheimer’s Association’s big fundraiser, Night at Sardi’s. Not only is it an excellent cause (my grandmother died of Alzheimer’s), but it’s where my mom works. The sheer star power is dazzling.

Tonight’s musical revue is Guys and Dolls and promises to feature: Eric McCormack of Will & Grace fame, Jason Alexander (Seinfeld), Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Joely Fisher, Peter Gallagher (The OC), Victor Garber (Alias), Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Brent Spiner (Star Trek), Lea Thompson (Caroline in the City), and this year’s big stars Dick Van Dyke and Rita Wilson.

Besides that, you just never know who you’re going to see in the audience. Three years ago, I stood on the red carpet next to Billy Crystal. The year after I saw Brooke Shields in the ladies room!

ETA: William Shatner will be there tonight as well as David Hyde Pierce. Can’t wait!
