It seems that July is the month of Independence holidays, and we have no complaints since that generally just gives us another reason to celebrate. Hopefully everyone is well and recovered from last weeks back to back Fourth of July celebrations, because this Saturday is officially Bastille Day, which celebrates the French Revolution. The French will probably celebrate by drinking massive amounts of red wine, smoking tons of cigarettes, eating one too many macaroons and being really patriotic in their own French way. So how can you celebrate Bastille Day in the Hamptons? More»
Red, white and blue is color scheme that is looked down upon all year long, but everything changes when the first week of July swings around. So now is the time to break out your navy shoes, your red dresses and white accessories of all types, it really doesn't matter the occasion. But just because you're rocking the colors of the flag doesn't mean you can't be the best dressed in the room (or on the beach). So whether you're hopping from one fireworks show to the next, you have a lovely picnic to attend, or you just want to be the most glamorous at the pool party, we've got your back. More»
Saturday night Sag Harbor and the North Sea Fire Department kicked off the week of Fourth of July celebrations with firework shows that stunned and captivated bystanders. There's really no better way to celebrate the independence of our country than covering your ears to muffle the sound of the sky being lit up with every color of the rainbow. More»

This Sunday marks July 4th 2010, and what a day it should be! Hopefully even after the debaucherous Friday and Saturday nights, you will still be left with a sliver of energy to enjoy the festivities the fourth should bring: great friends, good food, and of course, a rockin' fireworks show come nighttime.

We know, it's hard to imagine that there was life outside of the Hamptons this Memorial Day Weekend, but lo and behold there was! There were picnics in Central Park, and probably hundreds of rooftop parties in the city. However, another destination hot-spot that some opted for (including Lance Bass, Jaslene Gonzales and others), was Atlantic City. More specifically, the newly launched C5 and The Cabana Club at the Chelsea Hotel. MORE>>>

This Labor Day weekend I fully realized the extent of how different the "Hamptons' experience" can be for different people. Whether you're the type to spend all weekend golfing, to be the social butterfly out and about mingling in different outfits at every planned party, to be spraying champagne over your new best friends at the nightclubs, to be hosting bbqs and bonfires, or to opt out of all of the above and be a beach bum all weekend (my favorite), it's up to you to make the experience the one that you most enjoy. This weekend, for the first time, I feel like I really got all of it in: visits to an art exhibit with all of the fabulously dressed socials followed by drinks and dancing at (dare I admit it) DUNE, days on the beach, ice cream in the afternoons, dinner under the stars with debaucherous bonfires to follow, champagne sprays, milky ways, boogie boards, and dark and stormy's. The dichotomies that I came across this weekend were plentiful, as the Hamptons may be best described as anyway: The ULTIMATE dichotomy.
Some lessons I learned this weekend:

'Round these parts, Memorial Day weekend is known as the inauguration of the summer season, a time of laid-back fiestas and not-so laid-back benefits, of evermore opulent nightclubs with evermore pricy bottle service. Salvageable memories are most likely a mixture of white (finally!), charcoal, mud, and endless speeches. Yesterday, a friend asked me what Memorial Day stood for, and my embarrassingly vague response (err...dead soldiers?), made me rushed to Wikipedia in hopes of atonement and answers. Below, a few of my findings (yes, I double-checked; I know Wiki isn't always honest). More»

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
