Think of it as a fantastic literary mosh pit. An enthusiastic crowd of 2,000 mingled last Saturday with 100 authors at the 11th Annual Authors Night Benefit for East Hampton Library under a tent of titans of words. Considered one of the nation’s leading annual literary celebrations, the night begins with guests interacting with their favorite and new authors to get books personally inscribed, take selfies, and ask one another in excited hushed tones, “Who’s your literary crush?”
There are a few magical moments when the Hamptons transform into a worthy wonderland – namely the best Hamptons fundraisers. These fantastic events not only raise money for various causes but create memorable evenings. Think of it as tax deductible decadence.

Bridgehampton Polo is the après beach destination for Saturday afternoons running through August 23rd. Top players and their amazingly agile ponies take to the field for fierce competition. While these pros make it look easy, it’s far from a ride through the park. Sylvester Stallone once said, “Playing polo is like trying to play golf during an earthquake.”
There’s plenty of social action field side as well with viewing options which range from a blanket by the field enjoying gourmet food …Read More...

They say that too many chefs in the kitchen is a bad thing but at the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival that proved quite untrue. When it’s Daniel Boulud, David Burke, and Todd English all you can say is “I’m in.” Taste buds were percolating in anticipation and promises of pilates and green juicing quickly went out the window in favor of a foie gras hotdog and baba with rum gelée and vanilla Chantilly.

Greetings at the third annual Harvest East End Food and Wine Classic went something like this:
“Orlmmm, yermm, hold on a sec and let me get a napkin.” With so many delectable edibles and fine wines, it was literally hard to get a word in edgewise. Organized by Merliance and the Long Island Wine Council and presented by Wine Spectator, Harvest East End was the epicurean destination, held this year at the regal Hampton Classic show grounds.
Attention literary snow birds: for those of you heading to Palm Beach you can experience two of our favorite things – warm weather and amazing authors. In its eighth year the Author Breakfast Series at the Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club kicks off on Friday Jan 20th and runs through March. You’ll get to interact with wonderful authors many whom have Hampton ties as well such as Nelson DeMille and Ivana Lowell whose amazing memoir “Why Not Say What Happened?” includes …Read More...
In the category of You Can’t Make This **** Up:
A sales clerk at a designer East Hampton boutique had wayyyy too many mojitos at lunch and stole not only some pricey garments but also all the cash in the register (do people actually still buy things with cash?) He went on the lam and was chased on foot by police. After the officer fell the criminal had the great idea to duck into a high end hair salon.

I have found my new favorite sport – stand-up paddleboarding. The only thing better than doing stand-up paddleboarding in the Hamptons is doing stand-up paddleboarding with Paddle Diva.
These are my people.
Paddle Diva was founded by Gina Bradley in the summer of 2009. Gina felt women were completely underserved in the Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) market. She knew this was an activity that was going to explode with women. Thus Paddle Diva was born.
