WHERE SHALL I PLAY YOU SAY?
Here you have it, the first ever “Your Weekend, Undressed” where we’ll give you a tiny tiny taste of the best goings on of the weekend. Fend for yourself at the door.
TO THE EAST WE HAVE—
#1. ART FOR LIFE BENEFIT – Russell Simmons East Hampton Estate
SATURDAY, JULY 28, 2012, 6PM Cocktails 7PM Dinner & Program
Why: If you’re deaf AND blind you’ve probably still heard about this event; most likely via a dream where you woke up salivating over not only the food porn worthy foodie treats but also over the celebrity porn walking amongst your breathing space. Case in point, Last years attendees included Edward Norton, Mary J. Blige, Gwyneth Paltrow, Donald Baechler, Marc Leder, Yoko Ono and included a performance by Jennifer Hudson.
#2. – 15TH ANNUAL SUPER SATURDAY – Nova’s Ark Project – Water Mill
SATURDAY, JULY 28, 1PM – 6PM
Why: FINALLY, A day time event. You can keep it family friendly, sip on a cocktail, bask in the (hopeful) sun, shop your heart out on discounted designer yes?, and all before the sun sets. Famous faces to be included (Kelly Ripa, Donna Karan, Courtney Cox, Star Jones, Beth Ostrosky, Melanie Fiona and “Empire Girls” stars Adrienne Bailon and Julissa Bermudez). YAY’s all around.
After spending a days pay on a ticket ($450)..go home, bbq by the pool, pass out for a few hours after downing 3 bloody marys with your grilled salmon burger, wake up at say 11PM, put on an american apparel something and then go mingle with models and bottles at SL East. Why, well because where the models play, people sashay and you know how much I love waiting outside of a club for hours so I can see them sashay. You work it out.
STAYING IN THE CITY LIKE ME? EVENTS FOR THOSE NOT WANTING TO MAKE THE 3 HR + TREK TO THE HAMPTY HAMPS
#1 – EDIBLE MANHATTAN PRESENTS THE 4TH ANNUAL “GOOD BEER” FEST – 82 Mercer St, NY
SATURDAY, JULY 28, 6PM – 8PM
Why: We’ve all been there, you get back to the office on Monday, your coworkers tell their amazing tale of hiking a mountain and witnessing a bear attack and then ask “So, what did you do this weekend?” you are sufficed to say “NOTHING” and then turn slowly and walk away. Well… don’t be the boring office log, go to GOOD BEER, spend a measly $55 on all you can eat and drink beer and food from 30 RESTAURANTS. Just go to the gym on Sunday and then you can reallyfeel like a productive human being.
#2 – Honestly, nothing exciting happens in the city on the weekends…
Why: Everyone is in the Hamptons. BUT if you don’t like the trek, loathe the wasp or just need a break from the fresh air every weekend, well then we might have another option for you. If you don’t enjoy GOOD BEER, you could check this out THE 1ST(!) ANNUAL CATALPA MUSIC FESTIVAL, little bands like THE BLACK KEYS, TV ON THE RADIO, GIRL TALK and MATT & KIM are playing. Who knows, might be good.
I’m sure there are countless other events to mention but if we gave you every choice then you might find yourself in a conundrum of where to go. These are my choices. What are you doing this weekend?
