From New York Daily News:
Billionaire grocer John Catsimatidis, the failed GOP mayoral candidates, partied alongside former New York State Democratic Party co-chair Dave Pollack and Democratic politico Ezra Friedlander.
Former Knick great John Starks was also at the party, where guests smoked pricy cigars and nibbled on shrimp and truffle-soaked French fries.
New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, who was hanging out at the members-only club, stopped over Gerstman’s table to shake his hand, and the Rev. Al Sharpton – a Havana Room regular – sat a few seats away enjoying a quiet meal.
Not in attendance was former love guv Eliot Spitzer, whose controller campaign Gerstman worked for this past fall.
