You Should Know: Peter Davis

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

Our favorite man about every town it seems, and perpetual YSK pal, Peter Davis is an atomic social butterfly in full flight. A guy who is forever game, and on any given night, always on his way to at least two or three more events, no party is complete without a guest appearance by one Mr. Davis. A lifelong repeat Hamptonite, his ideal day is one to be modeled for sure.

Name: Peter Davis
Occupation: Media Maker
Place of Birth: Manhattan - New York Hospital
Instagram / Twitter: @PeterDavisNYC
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius

What do you actually do? Train my puppy Digory and buy lots of fancy af lattes in Williamsburg. I also make media - I've been the editor of a few magazines, launched two and written for almost all of them. I'm about to do something big - digital, of course.

My motto is: ✌🌊✌

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: St. Andrew's Dune Church, the barrels at the beach club, the Fudge Company, the trail that runs above the beach to Ditch Plains, Road G beach.

The craziest thing I've done out East is... When I was 11 I "ran away" from home one fall weekend in Southampton. I packed a survival kit I had seen in a spy book. I lasted about 2 hours and no one really noticed I was missing. I came home because I missed TV.

Best kept Hamptons secret? September is the best month to be out East.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do? Surf Road G, smoke pot on the roof of the Dune Church like I did when I was 16 then grill a feast - steaks, chicken, tuna, sweet corn then drive to MTK - more ocean time then twin lobsters on a plastic tray at Gossmans. Might do that this weekend actually.

Who should we know? Tuesday and Johnny Gaghan (age 7 and 2), Hawaii Joe, the butchers at Peconic Meat.
