Daily News: Bipartisan Birthday Bash For Brad Gerstman


Power lawyer and behind-the-scenes Democrat politico Brad Gerstman, right, was feted at a bi-partisan birthday bash at the Grand Havana Room cigar club Monday night.

Billionaire grocer John Catsimatidis, the failed GOP mayoral candidates, partied alongside former New York State Democratic Party co-chair Dave Pollack and Democratic politico Ezra Friedlander.

Former Knick great John Starks was also at the party, where guests smoked pricy cigars and nibbled on shrimp and truffle-soaked French fries.

New York State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos, who was hanging out at the members-only club, stopped over Gerstman’s table to shake his hand, and the Rev. Al Sharpton – a Havana Room regular – sat a few seats away enjoying a quiet meal.

Not in attendance was former love guv Eliot Spitzer, whose controller campaign Gerstman worked for this past fall.
