We've said it once, and we will certainly say it again, we just can't wait for Ben Watt's Shark Attack Sounds Party. As we've watched the most epic party of the summer grow from just a little get together to the party of the summer, we lost track of the years, all 10 of them. That's right, this quintessential summer bash complete with A-List celebs, the most current DJs of the moment and more ridiculous get-ups than we can count, turns a decade old this year. More»
Summer in the Hamptons isn't quite right without a touch of polo here and there. A wonderful summer afternoon is always spent watching the sport and it's attractive athletes romp around on horses, while you get to sit back and sip on champagne. And while Argentinian polo star Nacho Figuera always gets named the favorite player of the season, this summer we've got our eyes on Nic Roldan, an Argentinian born, but American bred player who is also a brand ambassador for Piaget.

Just call her the mother of collaboration, because Cynthia Rowley has been joining forces with her peers to coordinate and create her own version of almost every item you could imagine. In the past Cynthia has worked with Colette, Roxy, Birchbox and even Pampers but most recently, Cynthia has released goods in partnership with Tweezerman and Band Aid making your beauty regime more fashionable than ever.

Today marks the official opening day of Swallow East, a restaurant brought to you by co-owners James Tchinnis and Mark Walrath, one of the new owners of Surf Lodge. Located directly on Montauk Harbor, where Lenny's used to be, this new spot is finally ready for business after a winter of renovations.
Swallow East stays true to Lenny's dockside reputation, but that seems to be where the similarities end. Offering a selection of small plates, you can choose to enjoy them in the main dining room, with the chef or on the back covered patio with a clear view of docked charter boats. More»
Since the reincarnation of the Surf Lodge this summer, Montauk has been buzzing about the changes to expect: Will it really be more family friendly? Who is replacing Chef Sam Talbot? What will change and what will stay the same? Byron at the Surf Lodge, the new Aussie-inspired restaurant within the hotel, is now a part of The Highlands Restaurant Group, with hopes to develop a more mature and restaurant-based reputation (no more Jäger behind the bar!).
We chatted with the new partner and Executive Chef Chris Rendell, formerly of Whitehall and Public in New York (among other prominent eateries), to clear up any rumors about the new menu, the new ownership, and the new vibe. More»
Since Memorial Day weekend, Hamptons hotspot SL East has been in full swing. Pavan Pardasani, EMM Group's Director of Marketing, is behind the summer outpost of this Manhattan club, and between the revamped sound system with a video wall, the a new outdoor bar, and bringing in members of EMM Group's New York team to manage guest experiences and more, he had a lot to say.

It's almost Labor Day weekend, you're last chance to wear white at a social setting of the summer. You have to look good, or your "summer friends" can expect a reenactment of the last scene in "White Chicks." You've out-worn your white skinnys and you're white tee has noticeable pit stains (we won't tell anyone). At this point, it's time shop around for more white options before it's too late to rock white.
With her red polka dot dress, her tribal print head band and bright electric blue earrings, this girl screams summer fun. She is rocking cute but comfortable shoes perfect for an "indoors/outdoors" sandy venue like Navy Beach; they also make her look extra easy-breezy.
I hope you weren't planning on using this weekend's predicted hurricane as an excuse to stay in. Whether Irene's arrival is nasty or (probably not) nice, it's another great excuse to re-vamp your rain gear wardrobe.
Jesse Joeckel is a bred Montauk kid. Though he wasn't born on the East End, he has lived there enough years to qualify as a local. The surfer spent years traveling all over the world (including Hawaii, Bali, Brazil, Mexico and California) where he acquired a taste of classic surfer cool. Working independently as a graphic designer (he's worked on campaigns for Converse, and more recently Hamptons Free Ride and Wampum Skate Shop), he's been translating his design skills into clothing and accessories. Hidden away, in a little nook past the Surf Lodge on a private road on the water, Jesse spends his day silk screening his original designs on to hats, shirts, and even clocks, for both men and women when he's not in the water. "It's like my own secret spot, because it's not really a store, it's just my office. I like to keep it that way." More»
