Press Feeding Frenzy

It's the most anticipated art journalists' eating opportunity since the Maltz Museum at Per Se: Director Michael Brand of the Getty Museum hosts a 9 a.m. press breakfast tomorrow at the hot new Le Cirque. Does Sirio Maccioni get up this early?

The ostensible purpose of the repast is to discuss an exhibition opening at the Getty in November, "Holy Image, Hallowed Ground: Icons from Sinai."

But it's also a chance for Brand to meet hungry New York scribes. (I did dine at his table previously, back when Brand was director of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.) What do you think we'll now be asking about?

If nothing else, CultureGrrl will be able to regale you with her first restaurant review. After all, Le Cirque claims to be the place "where the worlds of food, fashion, art and culture converge."

Do you think they'll bring me a special order of Dunkin' Donuts?
