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.

The Rubicam Chronicles 1.7

It’s been an eventful several weeks since my last entry- I attended several influencer events in between my own parties:

1) the launch of my friend Michela’s new gallery at her boutique store uptown, The Artist Outpost

2) the launch of Cloud Water at Alley Cat

3) the opening of a new Alphabet City restaurant Lamia’s Fish Market at the old Le Souk spot – stay tuned for more Le Souk & Lamia Fish Market news

4) the opening of Casa Bocado at the old Esther & Carroll spot

5) and a party that was, literally, for the dogs – stay tuned for an adorable monthly dog party

I also hosted successful screenings for the Game of Thrones finale at Savage Lounge – we look forward to programming more movie screenings this Summer.

Many of these events I attended to seek inspiration, strengthen my friendships & hoping to collaborate with my hardworking, talented group of friends and create some fun, new events & experiences in the near future. Stay tuned for details!

Saturdays Sunset Brunch at Gitano

This past Saturday, we successfully previewed our NEW Saturday Sunset Brunch at Gitano Jungle Room.

During the next few weeks, we will be adding more programming to this party. Located in The James Hotel in Soho, Gitano JR is certainly one of the sexiest indoor-outdoor venues I have been and worked at, as this recap video can attest:

The Artist Outpost: Erotic Feminism

Thursday, May 16

Last week, I attended the grand opening of The Artist Outpost’s Art gallery, located below TAO’s boutique store, featuring the launch of the Erotic Feminism art exhibition. Boutique store owner & gallery curator Michela Tebano organized quite a successful turnout, a testament to her passion and commitment to establish this little oasis of fashion & culture, in what seems to be a gentrifying neighborhood still in its infancy.

What is The Art Lounge?

The Art Lounge is our new, bi-monthly concept of a multi-media art showcase, featuring works by multiple artists & photographers exhibiting paintings, doing live art or installations, photography or visual showcases, within cocktail party setting, alongside a real VIP nightclub setting.

The goal is to make the nightlife experience a little more meaningful by adding a cultural purpose to supplement the musical and social components of the typical lounge or nightclub scene.

The Rubicam Chronicles 1.3

The Best Picture

Today, I was reminiscing about the Oscars last month- every conclusion of each Oscar show reminded me of my most memorable Oscar-watching party, in the early 2000s.

I was with a girl I was dating at the time, and we went to our friends’ apartment, this other couple, to watch the Oscars that year.

There was five of us- two couples and a guy friend. And we were having a fun time, good flirty conversation amongst friends. Towards the end of the show, I got up to go to the bathroom. I got out of the toilet right when the Best Picture was announced and it was then everyone just started …
