The guards at the Metropolitan Museum of Art didn’t have to turn the lights on for TONY BENNETT. He celebrated his 75th birthday there last night with a crowd that included HARRY BELAFONTE, KATIE COURIC, REGIS PHILBIN, K. D. LAING, DAVID N. DINKINS, MARIO M. CUOMO and guards who, over the years, have let Mr. Bennett in when the Met is supposed to be closed. Because they know that he is also a painter.

”He was bascially sneaking in,” Mr. Bennett’s son DANNY BENNETT said. ”I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, but the place would be dark and the security guards would be in there, turning the lights on as he went in. He’d set up his easel and paint. Eventually, I think, the museum caught wind that he was doing it, and they said, ‘Just call us, we’ll work it out.’ ”

But the Met has rules. So even with help from the philanthropist IRIS CANTOR, who is on the Met’s board and worked on the arrangements for last night’s gathering, it was not a birthday party — the word ”birthday,” apparently, was a no-no, Danny Bennett said. ”They kept saying they don’t do birthdays there,” he said. ”We kept trying to figure out how to say on the invitation that we’re celebrating a birthday without using the word birthday. ‘Seventy-five years’ seemed to satisfy the board, so that’s what we put on the invitations.’

Dana made sure Mr Dinero made it safely back to his car when the party was over.
