The Rubicam Chronicles 1.8 + Friday at Calissa (Hamptons)

For the past ten years, I’ve been fortunate to enjoy the company of good friends & amazing visits to Sag Harbor in the Hamptons.

Last weekend, I did one of those visits within the context of one of my frantic 24-hr “drive-bys”:

I arrived Saturday afternoon in Sag, and we immediately headed to the marina, where our friend Terry picked us up from his small boat, & tender us to our friend Jim’s bigger boat, & go on a sunset cruise.

After our boating adventure, we headed back to Jim’s house & changed to grab some late night dinner & drinks at my weekly Saturday event at The Maidstone.

We headed back right after dinner for a nighttime swim, before turning in for the night.

In the morning, we had breakfast by the pool, and took a final dip before getting ready to take the train back to New York.

All within a perfect 24-hour span.

Newsletter: Rogue East- Love, Summer at the Maidstone, St. Barth’s Hamptons Gala hosted by Charlotte McKinney + Gitano Sunset Brunch, etc

What a busy weekend it’s seems to be. In the beginning of this season, I thought I was only going to take on one (1) project (which is The Maidstone (see my Love, Summer post). But recently, I’ve been asked to take on a few more projects, so I’ve decided to setup a new section in my website called-

Rogue East

Basically, this is a seasonal guide on all events & happenings in The Hamptons that I’ve been asked to get involved with. This year, it will just be a small compilation, to test out my bandwidth; but, I do anticipate a more expansive content next year. Meantime, check it out & hope you can join us if you’re out East.
