“Look,” he said to an inquiring female guest. “We have no cause, we have no purpose. We just get together on a grim winter evening and have fun.

Last night was no exception. The high-wattage assemblage-250 members, 400 guests (many winging in on their private jets, with Barbara Walters hooking a ride with Donald Marron, head of Lightyear Capital, and David Rockefeller flying in with his longtime assistant)-dined on the usual fare: lobster in puff pastry (the lobster keeps shrinking each year), and surf and turf accompanied by red and white Mondavi Family wine.
