More Bat Mitzvah Madness
And I thought last week's bat mitzvah was bad. This week's version makes last week's look like child's play:
For his daughter's coming-of-age celebration last weekend, multimillionaire Long Island defense contractor David H. Brooks booked two floors of the Rainbow Room, hauled in concert-ready equipment, built a stage, installed special carpeting, outfitted the space with Jumbotrons and arranged command performances by everyone from 50 Cent to Tom Petty to Aerosmith.
...The party cost an estimated $10 million, including the price of corporate jets to ferry the performers to and from.
...the 150 kids in attendance seemed more impressed by their $1,000 gift bags, complete with digital cameras and the latest video iPod.
