9th Annual Hamptons Happening 2013

MDG was a Hampotonite on Saturday night.....celebrating the 9th annual A Hamptons Happening in Bridgehampton, NY. I always wanted to know what it would be like to attend one of these Hamptons events...let me tell you it was nothing but amazing.... Maria and Kenneth Fishel opened up their home or rather extensive backyard where guests were treated to signature delicacies from acclaimed chefs from the New York area. Six of Todd English's restaurants were featured..... He was also there along with his executive chefs! A nice surprise was seeing Chris Wragge, the WCBS anchor who was the M.C. for the evening. He kicked off an unbelievable auction of goodies ranging from villa vacations to a an opportunity to swim with Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte.

All proceeds benefit the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation. Mr. Sam Waxman was at the event and was honored for his dedication to curing and preventing cancer. His foundation has done some amazing work on uncovering the causes of the disease and reprogramming cancer cells.

Enjoy some of the pics from the evening..

Snuck a pic with gal pal Sheryl Berk who invited me to attend....

Colored lights under a sprawling white tent set the ambiance of the night...

AAhhh amazing Xante pear cocktails and food from Chef Emelie Johansson of the Swedish Culinary Summer and Chef Lalo of Socarrat Paella Bar in NYC were delish....

Chef Todd English's braised short rib melted in my mouth...definetely my fave...
