This July 4 weekend, we celebrate high-octane activity in the Hamptons; it’s celebrity-filled and full of uber-luxe action. Brooke Shields curates her first exhibit at Art Southampton;West Coasters Jenni Kayne and Vanessa Traina give us an exclusive look at their pop-up shops; Eric Fischl curates a show at the Southampton Arts Center; Clifford Ross hosts a talk at Guild Hall; and Scott Conant, Alex Guarnaschelli, George Hirsch, Katie Lee, Marc Murphy, and Joseph Realmuto show us how they create a perfect weekend barbecue—an essential Fourth of July staple.
Without a doubt, we prove once again that rosé is a summer sipping staple, but so too is craft beer. From the often Instagrammed cans of Montauk Brewing Company ale to the bespoke small-batch beers at Shelter Island Craft Brewery, we take you on a local tour of what’s on tap.
