Carrie Nation 

Strap on your Manolo Blahniks and reminisce about cable TV's breakthrough chick flick.

The adventures of Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda come to life with trivia questions, raffles, and specially named cosmos for tonight's Sex & the City Patio Party in Legacy Village. The blowout helps celebrate last week's movie premiere, which picks up where the popular HBO-TV series left off last season, with the four female stars answering the questions that the fairer sex always asks. "Can men and women really be equals? Can men and women stay friends after a breakup? Is it okay in this modern day and time for a woman to ask a man out?" asks Sharon Dundee, the party's organizer. "As my male friends would say, they didn't realize women got together and talked about these things."As fans sip martinis named after the show's characters, they'll nosh on apps and compete for prizes in a series of trivia contests. They'll also get chances to win show-related DVDs, books, and movie tickets. And the dudes are more than welcome to join in. "I have a lot of guy friends who, at first, didn't watch it. But some girlfriend would force them to see it. And they were hooked, because it was such an education on how women think and what they talk about," says Dundee. "They're like, 'I shoulda watched this years ago.' It can be quite the eye-opener." The party runs from 6 to 8 tonight at Joseph-Beth Booksellers' Brontë Bistro, 24519 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst. Admission is free. Call 216-691-7000 or visit
