"I go to parties. And saloon openings. And restaurant grand openings. And fund-raisers, receptions and even, gasp, political events.

"Nice, eh? Slap on some grown-up clothes - they like you to wear shoes at these functions - knock back a few shrimp, make nice with the guests and go home.

"Then I write a three-times-a-week column called Psst! where I blab about everything I heard and saw on the party/bar circuit. I like to think Psst! is a lively mix of names, faces, people, events and here and there a dash of gossip.

"I've been with The Enquirer 26 years. Keep reading 26 more. The fun is just beginning."
