Seen & Heard: Seaport Fundrasier

••• From Julie: “I was excited to find Mehtaphor on Seamless last night (and even better was that it was offered for 20% off). The food was good and delivery surprisingly quick. Not sure if it’s new—but thought I’d pass it on since I find such a lack of good places that deliver.”

••• From Ashley Duncan, PTA president at Spruce Street School, P.S. 397: “Our PTA is organizing a fundraiser, The Spirit Project, to benefit Seaport businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy. It’ll involve bands, beer/wine, food trucks and raffle. It’s shaping up to be an amazing night – the community has pulled together in a major way to donate their services to help make this happen.” It’s April 18, 5-9 p.m., on Front Street between Beekman and Fulton.

••• Terroir Tribeca is starting up wine classes. Also, the other night I realized that the “t” etched on the restaurant’s glasses is there for servers to know how much to pour.

••• My Little Sunshine opens today at 145 Hudson.

••• Norma Kamali will be at 92YTribeca on April 10 for a talk on empowering women through fashion.

••• You know how I’m always warning you not to follow Tribeca Citizen exclusively through Facebook, because the company is starting to give precedence to “promoted” posts in your newsfeed? It recently added a section to my page’s dashboard that you might find enlightening. I don’t think these posts would get marked as paid, the way ads do; instead, Facebook is tightening and releasing the pipeline of information, depending on whether it’s getting revenue from the source. I don’t blame Facebook for trying, but I don’t like it, which is why I’ve become a Twitter convert. (As you can see, I did some half-assed retouching to hide people’s names.)
