No one kicks-off the summer like Hamptons Magazine and their 14th Annual Memorial Day celebration honoring the Memorial Day Issue cover star. Last year’s cover featured TODAY show host and Hamptons resident, Matt Lauer, speaking about his inspiration to launch a campaign too keep the East End pristine and clean. Local residents and celebrity guests, including our very own Mark Addison, stopped by the event held at The Southampton Social Club. Who will be selected for the 2013 cover?

The annual ArtHamptons international art fair was one of Mark’s favorite new events of the 2012 season. With more than 95 acres, Nova’s Art Project hosted the event this past July with over 9,500 guests over three days. The program included various panel discussions, special events, celebrity appearances, and 80 galleries exhibiting art. The fair emerged as one of the premiere must-attend events of the summer celebrating the local art community and its history as an art colony. This year’s fair is scheduled for July 11th-14th.
