Guests included College Humor's Ricky Van Veen with Anna Marie Tendler, Steve Kasuba, Andrew Farkas, Jason and Haley Binn, Lyle Maltz and the "Swinging Saturday" host Katie Lee Joel, who was definitely a party favorite thanks to her portobello mushroom burgers with caramelized onions, arugula, muenster cheese, and pimento aioli on Portugese muffins which were an absolute hit.

Between hanging out in the sun, gabbing with bff David Blasberg, and playing croquet Katie Lee signed copies of her newly released cookbook, The Comfort Table. With the rumors surrounding Billy Joel's possible purchase of an Italian Sag Harbor restaurant, maybe we'll see Katie's recipes in the East End very soon.
