ESTA Foundation Benefit (For Big Spenders)
Sun West Studios
450 West 31st St

Open bar, hors d’oeuvres, dinner stations and desserts. Tickets begin at $135.
Any number of neighborhood bars may be good for watching the awards. But MTV has a competing awards show on Sunday night so if your fave watering hole skews toward that demographic, you may have to fight for screen time. And of course if you’re in a sports bar, fuggetaboudit.If you can’t make it to Times Square or out to a pub, the Tony Awards are being broadcast live, from the Beacon Theatre from, 8:00 – 11:00 p.m.
