My first sighting during the star-jammed week of July 4 was Sir Ivan Wilzig’s meat in my Fresh Direct order. How Fresh Direct confused Wilzig Castle with my shingled shack in East Hampton, I have no idea, but his name was stamped on the paper packaging. Delicious sliced kosher meat. Good taste, Sir Ivan.
On Sunday, June 30, Julie Andrews—just back from performing in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne—tucked into lobster at Madison and Main. Same venue, by the way, Roger Waters had soft shell crab while joining Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel.
Monday, July 1, also at Madison and Main, Matt Lauer, Alan Alda, and Andy Cohen paired soft shell crabs and Bertaud Belieu Cuvée Prestige Rosé. And Joy Behar went for the one and a half pound lobster at Bostwick's.
Tuesday, July 2, Jerry Seinfeld and Andy Cohen tucked into Rowdy burgers and a side of pickles at Rowdy Hall in East Hampton. And Jersey "Real Housewife" Dina Manzo chose seafood at Madison and Main in Sag Harbor.
Wednesday, July 3, Hugh Jackman hit Bobby Vans. And Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue model Ariel Meredith hosted the Voss Foundation Benefit at Georgica in Wainscott. The organization provides access to clean water in Sub-Saharan Africa. Meredith wore a sparkly dress by Ralph Lauren that she claimed she'd actually bought. “The foundation means a lot to me,” she said. “It’s definitely changing lives.”

Art-school-educated David Stark’s early days as a painter led to his present-day calling: “Events have become my canvases,” he says, “and like any artist I never want to make the same painting twice!” Known for repurposing environmentally friendly materials into installations, Stark has wowed guests at such recent soirées as a pier-side carnival for the Prabal Gurung for Target collection and the Whitney Museum’s Art Party in a historic post office.
David Stark: The Art of the Party (The Monacelli Press; $40), published this spring, explains Stark, is “a ‘look under the hood of the car’ of a party.” Charting the anatomy of a perfectly produced fête, 25 cases-in-point boldly illustrate the process, from color schemes and venue transformations to ensuring each delightfully hidden surprise unfolds organically. The innovator’s Independence Day tips are just as playfully unpredictable as his design sense: “I go monochrome,” he explains. “Pick one color from the [red, white, and blue] trio and go all out. In the Hamptons, nothing is more chic than a full-on white party.” David Stark: The Art of the Party is available at BookHampton, 41 Main St., East Hampton, 324-4939
