Oscar parties pose traffic nightmare

Vanity Fair, Elton John sked adjacent fetes

It looks like Vanity Fair’s Oscar party at Morton’s will be getting some company.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation and In Style Magazine will be taking over the Pagani restaurant, which is directly across the street from Morton’s, for their Academy Awards party benefiting AIDS care services.

The locale was used in recent years by Sony when it was the Eclipse restaurant for its party celebrating “Jerry Maguire.” The spot presents both pluses and minuses. While there’s media-attention synergy to be gained by having two high-profile affairs so close to each other, the traffic control requires ballet-like coordination.
