The New York Comedy Festival brought an influx of comedians this week: Larry David did what he does best — talked — at Primola, while Bill Maher ate at Vai. Meanwhile, veterans of the New York political scene (a comedy show in its own right) Eliot Spitzer, Christine Quinn, and Huma Abedin lunched simultaneously but separately at Michael's. This, and more, straight ahead.

Michael's: A motley crew of down-on-their-luck figures lunched simultaneously on Wednesday: Eliot Spitzer, Christine Quinn, and Huma Abedin. At another table sat Dolphins owner Steve Ross, still dealing with his team's corrosive bullying debacle. [Page Six/NYP]

Nello: Pamela Anderson had pasta and salad with beau Rick Salomon a week after running the New York marathon. Anderson compared the run to the agony of giving birth; apparently those scenic Baywatch jogs across the beach may not have been adequate preparation. [Page Six/NYP]
