It has been a crazy week for me, filled with non-stop parties, events, and loads of fun with friends and the family. On a diet of lobster rolls, hamburgers, hot dogs, and the occasional salad (not to mention a few Modelos at times), I had one of the greatest weeks in the Hamptons in my recent memory. I truly believe this is turning out to be a great summer and I’m excited to enjoy the rest of it.
Georgica Mondays was the busiest night Georgica has ever had. Our continued collaboration with the Jonny Lennon’s Goldbar Funday crew has helped to make Mondays an enormous success. Shouts to DJ Sinatra, DJ Theory, and Julian Cavin for keeping everybody dancing all night long. Additionally, I’m sure the limited edition T-Shirts will be one of the most sought after clothing items of the summer. Thanks to our great hosts Augie, Mole, Kinney, Killie, and Ruddy Rock. I can’t wait to see the photos from KirillWasHere.
Wednesday, I honorably took part of, “News at Muse,” held in a quaint little restaurant in Sag Harbor. Josh “The News” Newberg, Sean Kinney, and Sean Killie hosted the party along with legions of Sag Harbor’s most faithful party people. What was normally considered a quiet restaurant at the edge of town was quickly transformed into a den of fun and revelry. Despite all of this, Muse’s staff loved everyone’s positive spirit and we will be looking to do something like this again real soon. Thanks again to Matt Guiffrida, the owner and executive chef of Muse In The Harbor.
Thursday, I was the guest DJ at SL East, alongside their resident DJ Biggie. I wasn’t very sure on what to expect, but when I arrived the whole place was packed and people were going nuts and swinging from the rafters (banquets?). Despite having archaic equipment to work with, we kept the place rocking all night long. The crowd was great and enthusiastic (the best kind!).
Friday, it was off to Montauk to Gurney’s Inn for a sunset barbecue and bonfire, hosted by my friend and favorite chef, James Cruickshank of Whitmans, Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte of The Smile and Westway, and Chef Sez. The burgers were “off the hook.” The tireless and their western native friends ventured on to Rick’s Crabby Cowboy Café for The 10th Annual Shark Attack Sounds party hosted by my friend Ben Pundole, Ben Watts, and Mazdack Rassi, with DJs Zen Freeman, Chelsea Leyland, Carl Kennedy and Victor Calderone. Congratulations to you guys for consistently throwing such a great and epic party year after year.
Saturday, I hosted Sinatra & V-Rat at my crib and had an amazing dinner at Sotto Sopra courtesy of my man Josh Newberg. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and on point. After a few shots of espresso, it was off to SL East. The phenomenal music came courtesy of Sinatra & DJ Politik. The energy never dipped and I remember running through the club with six packs of Fiji water and Red Bull, and some knock off bottle of fancy tequila.
Sunday, we held the weekly reggae party I do with Mole at the Southampton Social Club, featuring music by The Skadanks & Ras Droppa with DJ sets from DJ Gravy and myself. The previous weeks we were blessed with performances from Brigadier Jerry and Nardo Ranks, both of who are infamous dancehall legends. The party is always a great time and it continues to build.
Monday is Georgica….and we do it again.
