Scene Last Night: Novogratz, Martha Stewart, Harford — Wearing a yellow jumpsuit, holding a torch aflame, Fortress Capital's Michael Novogratz ran around a few tables at the Friends of Hudson River Park gala before hopping on stage to tout a mini-Olympics in the park. He vowed to train for the contests next June, which will include a pentathlon.

Scene Last Night: Red Hook Farmers, Edelson, Gottesman, Neumark — Tap for Slideshow Some people know what to do with leafy vegetables. Others learn the hard way. Ariel Morales is one of the ones who knows. The other day in the kitchen of the Williamsburg Community Center, Morales stood over the sink washing a big bowl of chard.

Scene Last Night: Lagarde, Leon Black, Lauder, Jim Simons — Tap for Slideshow Charlie Rose last night told Christine Lagarde and an audience of gala-goers that "many people in France would like her to come home to serve her country." "You are quite the headhunter," Lagarde quipped after the roars of applause had died down in a hall at the USS Intrepid.

The Vogue-ing of Brooklyn — A blog about doing good and doing well. Send tips to Amanda Gordon: 66 W. 38th St., Suite 5D | New York, NY 10018 by Amanda Gordon Fri, 24 Jul 2009 at 5:01 PM Hovering tightly underneath their umbrellas, a group of young women in stilettos arrived at the Prospect Park Boathouse last night, eager to get inside the Prospect Park Alliance Junior Committee's Summer Soiree.

Scene Last Night: Ainslie, Colbert, Isay, Soldier Stories — Tap for Slideshow Lee Ainslie went to business school in North Carolina, a hub of the U.S. furniture industry, but when he moved to Dallas to start Maverick Capital after working for Julian Robertson in New York, he had nary a chair.

Scene Last Night: Four Seasons Calder, Ralph Lauren World — Tap for Slideshow No catering halls were entered in the making of this column, which was quite a relief. Instead, I started last night in the Pool Room of the Four Seasons at a gala for the Storm King Art Center, located about an hour's drive north.

Scene Last Night: Buffett, Anka for Friars Slim, De Niro — Tap for Slideshow Warren Buffett's excuse for missing the Friars Club tribute to Carlos Slim last night? "Fortune is having its 400 Most Powerful Women, and oooh, we are not going to miss that, Paul," Buffett said, sitting next to crooner Paul Anka in a pre-taped video played in the ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria.

Bill Murray, Naomi Watts, David Einhorn: Scene Last Night — Bill Murray is an endearing hot mess in his new movie " St. Vincent," which had a fancy New York screening at the Ziegfeld Theater last night. As the film opens, Murray as Vincent of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, smokes, drinks and is out of money, leaving him unable to pay a pretty, funny and pregnant pole dancer with a heavy Russian accent, played brilliantly by Naomi Watts.

Koch Big Mac, May Preztel Bacon Burger: Scene Last Night — Tap for Slideshow Carnegie Hall's endowment has been getting fatter, its chairman thinner. When Sandy Weill started as the music center's chairman 23 years ago, "the endowment was $2 million, now it's $320 million," he said at the hall's Opening Night Gala.

Scene Last Night: Fashion Sexes Up New York City Ballet — Tap for Slideshow Tyler Angle rested his hand on Wendy Whelan's left breast as they spun on stage at the David H. Koch Theater last night. Later, Robbie Fairchild groped the backside of his dance partner (and wife), Tiler Peck, through several layers of tulle.
