The Mooch is helping “Sugar Daddies” hook up with pliant young women seeking “arrangements.”
Anthony Scaramucci’s Midtown restaurant, Hunt & Fish Club, is the venue for Thursday’s “Sugar Social,” where 25 “invited gentlemen” will meet for cocktails and dinner with 35 “stunning women.”
Scaramucci — the Wall Street whiz who was President Trump’s communications director for 10 days — will not be attending. His publicist Howard Bragman told me, “Anthony is happily married.” Scaramucci and his wife, Deidre Ball, reconciled after she filed for divorce last summer.
The email promoting the event promises, “Sugar Socials are our solution to a relationship on your terms — upfront and honest arrangements.” Money typically does change hands.
“Meet with 35 stunning women the first hour over cocktails. Select one (or two, if you like) to join you for dinner . . . Need help choosing the right company? Our host will pair you with someone of interest.”
Bragman said Scaramucci isn’t involved in promoting sex-for-money relationships. “Some club rented out a private room,” the publicist said. “We neither condone nor endorse.”
As a libertarian-leaning limited government type, I don't believe the government has a role in regulating or prohibiting sex between consenting adults, even if that consent is obtained by payment of cash, or a role in a movie, but the #Metoo crowd does, and as you may have heard, they've been protesting and howling about the issue since last fall.
So, will they be demonstrating outside Scaramucci's restaurant on the night of this sex sale?
