A TRIO OF CELEBRITIES IN TRIBECA

The three men, who are among the most famous and influential in the world, were celebrating Obama's recent multi-million dollar deal with Netflix.

Curiously enough, one of Netflix's chief rivals is Tim Cook's Apple. Business and friendship make strange bedfellows, and even stranger dining companions.
