This tent, hoisted by Sperry Tents for the Group for the East End's “Dive Into Summer” event, was really sort of magnificent. The tent poles were some sort of rainforest-looking tree trunks, and the pivot points and lattice work made for a beautiful overhead view. I am dying to know how much this cost.
The event had all sorts of wealthy-looking people, plus Alec Baldwin, who is the unofficial, okay lets just make it official, King of the Hamptons benefit court. I did not approach him. We've met a bunch—I used to see him in Montauk at this little lobster place, and he was always smiling and having fun—but I figure too many people getting up in his grill is a problem, so why add to that?
