Lunch with Paul and Chevy Chase

from Jessica , 2005-04-22

Chevy Chase is running his annual Earth Day auction and offerin lunch with himself and Paul Simon as an item. So, for anyone with a few thousand to spare (sigh):
´ One of the marquee highlights of The Second Annual Chevy Chase Earth Day Auction will be the rare opportunity to break bread with music icon Paul Simon and his dear friend, Chevy Chase! ... Jayni and Chevy Chase are thrilled that Paul will be joining Chevy for lunch a Grammercy Tavern( http://www.grammercytavern.com), the famed Danny Meyer New York landmark which is well known for its reliably good wood-fired New American and unpretentious ambience. We can think of no better setting for a lunch for two with these two movie and music icons!´
