Media Christmas Potpourri: Philip Roth on the Prowl, 'T+L' Tonight, &c.

Several exciting new Media Christmas developments!

The New Yorker is, in so many ways, no Village Voice, but, despite the Eustace Tilly crowd's appalling lack of topless dancing and faux cocaine, we did score one delectable tip from their evening at Pastis last night. Reports an embedded journalist: "Philip Roth made an appearance with a twenty-something young lady widely rumored to have been dating Ben Kunkel prior to Mr. Roth's intervention. Mr. Roth and his lady were the subject of much conversation."

• We've added three more parties to the list — HBO, at the Marriott Marquis (thereby undermining in one evening the network's entire we're-more-sophisticated brand); Lifetime Networks, at Dodger Stages; and VNU Business Publications, at Capitale. Also, we've finally found the date for Travel + Leisure's elusive engagement at 60 Thompson: It's tonight.

• A little Postie in a tree passed along word that, though the paper's staff will join the rest of the Murdoch soldiers for the big Hilton shindig next Friday, they don't limit themselves to just that venue. "Starts at six, ends at 11," the birdie emailed. "Then people have been known to remain in Siberia until the next day or two." So now you'll know where to find Dunleavy if you need him that weekend.

• And, finally, here's what on tap for tonight:

CBS, the chairman's floor at Black Rock, the CBS Building
Hearst Magazines (all), Tavern on the Green
LHJ, Avra
MTV Networks, Hammerstein Ballroom
Simon & Schuster, The Supper Club
