Power players: Never one to miss the chance to throw a party, former Mayor Willie Brown is tossing a pre-inaugural dinner Saturday night for Mayor Ed Lee at the Palace Hotel’s Garden Court restaurant.
About 300 people are expected to attend the invitation-only affair, which includes dinner and music by Pete Escovedo and Ricardo Scales.
“This will not be your typical Willie Brown affair,” said the former mayor and current Chronicle columnist. “It will be modest. In keeping with Ed Lee, no black tie – just business dress.”
