President Clinton has pushed his travel plans to Haiti back a day so he can spend the evening with Ron Perelman and Patricia Duff. The President, who is scheduled to be in Tampa, Fla., today, plans to fly to Palm Beach this evening to have dinner at Perelman’s estate and may even spend the night. Even though Perelman is a registered Independent, the dinner is a fund-raiser for the National Democratic Committee. About 15 other guests are expected.
Match, the hot SoHo restaurant, will inaugurate its uptown version Sunday night with a party for Adrienne Vittadini. The decor is very Frank Lloyd Wright, and all the furniture is custom made, said Billy Gilroy, one of the major owners, along with Peter Faye and Chris Hayman.

Indirect lighting reflects on some of the art, including a Miro. “It’s a wonderful backdrop, whether you’re wearing Chanel or Armani,” Gilroy said. The menu will feature American cuisine with a Pacific Rim influence. On tap: a Match in Paris.
