This is from our man at Celebrity Magnet, Tom Murro....he attended the high-falootin' NYC party at Michael's this week attended by dignitaries and celebs alike to wish the Giants well in Indianapolis.....
Giants owner Steve Tisch, Harvey Weinstein and his brother Bob Weinstein, Matt Lauer, John McEnroe,Brian Williams, and Dick Ebersol invited lots of friends to Michaels Restaurant in NYC for a New York Giants Super Bowl pep rally luncheon before the Giants try to win that Vince Lombardi trophy once again.
Matt Lauer, who explained he'd been a Giants fan for as long as he can remember, announced that Paulette Figoski, the widowed wife of Peter Figoski, the NYPD officer shot and killed in Brooklyn in mid-December, and her two younger daughters, Corinne and Caroline, should they not have plans, were invited to go with Harvey and friends to Indianapolis and the Super Bowl on Sunday. (Bob Weinstein said he would probably be watching in Darien, Conn.) The Figoskis do not have plans, they said, and would be going.
Nice Tshirts- hats and Giants cookies, none left at the end.
- "What a sendoff," Steve Tisch told the crowd. "Why don't we do this every Wednesday?" "I'm in!" said Harvey Weinstein
