On a perfect Saturday night in Palm Beach,  AVENUE double-A-listers Lisa and James Cohen (he’s the chairman and CEO of Hudson Media Inc., the leading magazine distributor in the Eastern U.S.), opened the doors of their extraordinary oceanfront estate for a cocktail party celebrating their fellow “On the Beach” A-listers and the annual Palm Beach issue of AVENUE, which contains that much-scrutinized register.  The party, held in their sprawling outdoor courtyard, attracted the cream of the beach scene in the storied resort.  

Among the throng greeted by AVENUE’s CEO Randi Schatz (editor-in-chief Michael Gross had been stranded in New York by the previous day’s stormy weather) were Ambassador Earle I.
