Tuesday’s TIFF party picks

Tuesday's best bets for celeb spotting at #tiff

Tuesday’s best bets for celeb spotting. Door crash at your own risk.

National Post scene watcher Shinan Govani’s Boldface Names book is wrapped in so many meta layers (a book by a gossip columnist about a gossip columnist that the gossip columnist author has written about in his newspaper gossip column and whose publisher’s press release about the gossip column book reads and is laid out like a gossip column), I can’t wrap my head around its launch at Holt Renfrew this evening. I don’t think I’m supposed to think too hard about this one though.

Govani himself has already admitted in print that it was bold (faced) to go up against tonight’s InStyle magazine party at the Windsor Arms, otherwise knows as the Fort Knox of TIFF fetes, but he did it anyways.

The night’s do-gooding ‘do is the Cinema Against AIDS funder for AMFAR at The Carlu. Sarah McLachlan and Deborah Cox will perform and a board of event chairs that includes Sarah Ferguson, Stanley Tucci and Michelle Yeoh pretty much guarantees celebrity attendance.
