WE'RE PARTIED OUT and we c-a-n-'t get up! Between the Comcast Triple Crown Ball this past Thursday, the Fantasy Voyage on board the Royal Viking Line Friday, Preakness on Saturday and the grand opening of Luigi Petti's Outdoor Cafe Saturday night, we've chatted so-oo much with so-oo many people we snapped our vocal chords. Here's a few observations we'd, ah, like to voice -- if we could.
THE NEWLY FORMED PR team of Lynda O'Dea & Marsha Becker (with ace assistance from Gloria Cinequani) did one heck of a job pulling off the Preakness Celebration bashes -- not to mention the Preakness Corporate Village.
AT THE TRIPLE Crown Ball at the Hyatt Regency, ABC sportscaster Jim McKay and the National sports paper founder Frank Deford charmed all with emceeing duties. "I went to my first Preakness in 1952," Deford reminisced. "I used to hook school to go to Pimlico!" Other entertainment came in the form of Tim Conway, Miss America and a terrific band called Night Life.
