We went to the Elton John AIDS Foundation dinner at the Pacific Design Center tonight. The one we weren't invited to. (Ah, back doors.) But it really wasn't anything too exciting.

Everyone watched the Oscars and applauded. They auctioned off some pictures of Barack Obama for $90,000, a big contact sheet of photos taken by an old high school classmate. But there are plenty of other events to hit up this evening. A few photos below.

The gathered guests:
