This Week: Winter Fetes and Toy Mania

The Museum of the City of New York gets a blast of high fashion tonight at its Winter Ball sponsored by Yves Saint Laurent. Cleaver Company will cater, and Karen Bussen is providing floral design. Tomorrow, another wintry benefit takes place at the American Museum of Natural History. The museum’s Winter Dance will feature decor by EventCo Productions and food by Catering by Restaurant Associates. Toasting its design awards, Travel and Leisure magazine takes to the Dia Center’s annex with a party catered by Olivier Cheng Catering and Events.

A playful weekend starts off with the Toy Industry Association’s Toy of the Year awards at the Hilton New York on Saturday, and the big American International Toy Fair that begins Sunday at the Javits Center and showrooms throughout the toy district. The trade show continues through Wednesday.

Monday is Presidents’ Day, and that morning at the plaza and rink at Rockefeller Center, a display of Olympic talent will show support for the city’s 2012 bid for the games. And on Tuesday, the New York chapter of Meeting Professionals International holds its Jay Magazine Memorial Wine Tasting benefit at Bridgewaters.
