Grand Old Party Firms Up Party Plans

Parties surrounding the Republican National Convention will include a luncheon celebrating Johnny Cash at Sotheby's, a party for 2,000 at the Copacabana hosted by Governor Pataki, a reception at Gracie Mansion to honor the Latino Congressional Caucus, a reception for gay Republicans in Bryant Park hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and another Bloomberg event at Gracie Mansion for pro-choice Republicans, The New York Times reports. Some groups insisted in their contracts that the venues keep the events confidential; many planners anticipate demonstrations and other security concerns.
