Happy Tuesday! The Showtime drama “Billions” aired over the weekend, to mixed reviews. Those who have been watching previews of creepy Damian Lewis swimming around in a glorious Southampton swimming pool should know the Hamptons actually look like this (see above photo) right now. Still glorious, just January.
Keep up with us now
And because we can’t resist the opportunity to name drop, here is a photo of the Hampton Bee’s infant twins in front of the same swimming pool that creepy Damian Lewis likes to swim in. That’s just the way we roll, people.
Can we have a good cause, please?
Lest anyone think the Hamptons is just about name droppers OR billionaire hedge fund managers (like this guy and his giant sand dune), we have an uplifting announcement to report: Haute Hamptons, the Southampton catering company run by chef Christine Clemens, is once again making dishes for the St. Jude Hope in the Hamptons event, to be held July 9. Last year’s inaugural bash attracted 500 people and raised over $500,000. “Together we can help many children beat childhood cancer,” says Clemens, who is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. She invites anyone who wishes to donate services or products to contact her through her website.
And in more feel-good news, The Muses in Southampton is hosting Love Bites, an annual tasting event with nibbles (yum!) made by area chefs, this coming Saturday from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Proceeds benefit Katy’s Courage and The Scarlett Fund, both related to childhood cancers. Momi Ramen, Saaz Indian Restaurant and Tully’s Seafood Market are some of the restaurants involved.
Dockers Waterside on Dune Road, everybody’s favorite place to watch the sunset, has new mahogany decking. The Hampton Ballet Theater School in Bridgehampton is hosting a winter break “Dance Intensive” Feb. 15 -19 for young pupils. (As always, we here at the Bee wonder if we are too old to learn tap-dance.) And Mon Tiki, the Montauk catamaran company, is looking for an apprentice boat builder. If you want to join a team that includes “a fly-fishing guide, a chef, a former special forces operator, a medic, a painter, a film editor and assorted other oddballs” then contact Capt. David Ryan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
