In Europe name day is often celebrated in addition to a birthday, so if your first name is Patrick and it’s St. Patrick’s Day—well, that’s a great reason for a party. Even if you are in New York. (Especially if you are in New York.) Last Friday, philanthopist Jean Shafiroff (author of Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give) hosted a private surprise bash in honor of celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan at Jue Lan Club located in the old Limelight space.
