National Theatre Live presents Everyman starring Chiwetel Ejiofor
BAFTA winner and Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) takes the title role in this dynamic new production of one of English drama’s oldest plays, directed by the National Theatre’s new Director Rufus Norris (Broken, London Road).
Everyman is successful, popular and riding high when Death comes calling. He is forced to abandon the life he has built and embark on a last, frantic search to recruit a friend, anyone, to speak in his defence. But Death is close behind, and time is running out.
One of the great primal, spiritual myths, Everyman asks whether it is only in death that we can understand our lives. A cornerstone of English drama since the 15th century, it now explodes onto the stage in a startling production with words by Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate, and movement by Javier De Frutos.

The Hamptons International Film Festival presents SummerDocs #3: PEACE OFFICER
Following the screening, Alec Baldwin will host a conversation with writers-directors Brad Barber and Scott Christopherson
A film by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber
Dub Lawrence is a man obsessed. As a young rookie cop, he used his savvy investigation skills to help break the Ted Bundy case. His obsession with turning around the systemic failings he saw as a young police officer led to a successful bid to become Sheriff of Davis County, Utah at a young age in 1974. Committed to the highest standards of peace officers serving the public good, he once wrote himself a parking ticket when a citizen called him out for his patrol car’s violation.
After years in public service, today Dub works in semi-retirement as a private investigator, with projects fueled mostly by income from his water and sewage pump repair service. When he’s not wading through raw sewage, his remaining free time is spent investigating the shooting death of his son-in-law Brian Wood.
Dub puts himself in Brian’s shoes as he describes the felonies, mistakes, and problems created by the multiple SWAT teams involved in the arrest of one desperate man in his parked truck threatening no one but himself. Now forced to stand by and watch as a regular citizen, Dub also laments what the SWAT team he founded with noble ambitions 30 years earlier has become.
In Peace Officer, Dub’s long-term obsession with bringing to light the truth behind his son-in-law’s killing is punctuated by his investigation of other recent officer-involved shootings and SWAT team raids in quiet neighborhoods just miles from where Brian was killed. Several of these cases are related to aggressive no-knock search warrant laws typical across the country.
These events are contextualized within a growing national phenomenon of violent SWAT raids and governmental immunity laws gone amok in the War on Drugs. Officers both in cities and small towns like Dub’s are routinely armed with military surplus weapons and equipment, and federal incentives to use what they are given. All of this has lead to a 15,000% increase in SWAT team raids in the United States since the late 1970’s. Peace Officer follows Dub as he obsessively picks apart these cases from his unique perspective that combines the zeal of a rule-of-law detective with the grief of a victim.

Stirring the Pot: Conversations with Culinary Celebrities – Dominique Ansel
Hosted and Interviewed by Florence Fabricant…AND CRONUT HOLES WILL BE SERVED!
Q&A and book signing to follow
Dominique Ansel is the chef and owner of Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City. Chef Ansel is perhaps best-known for his creation of the Cronut™, a croissant and doughnut hybrid that has been reported on throughout the world and domestically on Good Morning America, NBC’s Today Show, ABC’s The Chew, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, among others. It is also the first pastry to have been so in demand that it sells of up to 20x its retail price on the black market. The Chef’s various other inventions, including his Frozen S’more, Magic Soufflé, Cookie Shot, and Waffle Affogato, have fast become popular treats with international fame. In 2014, Chef Ansel won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef. Before opening his own bakery, he was the executive pastry chef at Daniel, Daniel Boulud’s flagship French restaurant. During his six years there (the longest tenure of any pastry chef at Daniel), he was part of the team that led the restaurant to receive its first 4-star New York Times rating, 3 Michelin stars, and James Beard’s Outstanding Restaurant of the Year. Chef Ansel also spent seven years at the venerable French bakery Fauchon. New York Post proclaimed Chef Ansel the “Willy Wonka of NYC” and Bon Appétit editor Christine Mulhke called him “the top pastry chef in New York.” His first cookbook Dominique Ansel: The Secret Recipes published by Simon & Schuster was released in 2014.

Spin Doctors
Spin Doctors’ Pocket Full Of Kryptonite defined an era. Featuring hit after hit, from “Two Princes” to “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong,” the album sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. “Two Princes” was the most-played rock song in the world in 1993 and was recently certified by BMI with 3 million international radio plays (“Little Miss…” is at the 2-million mark). Following the 2011 release of Pocket Full of Kryptonite: 20th Anniversary Edition, Spin Doctors hit the road to do what they do best: perform great pop/rock and blues songs for live audiences. The wildly favorable audience reaction to the tour helped paved the way for their latest album If The River Was Whiskey that reconnects the band with the deep-blues style that gave them their start.

Roberts in Water Mill closes its doors after 25 years
Water Mill, NY: I am sad to announce that Robert’s Restaurant in Water Mill, NY a historic farmhouse and setting for rustic Italian cooking with local produce & seafood has closed their doors after 25 years. Owner-Chef Robert Durkin wrote in a Facebook Post on August 3rd. I was told 3 weeks ago that NYS Depart of Tax had shut them down, but I was hoping that they would recover.

l

Roberts-logoDurkin’s Facebook Post…..
“Dear Friends:Effective August 3, 2015, ROBERT’s has been closed after a long contentious and profoundly illegal action by the State of NY Sales Tax Authority . It is with much sadness that I share this news. I will in the future publicly share the sordid details of the immoral pogrom on the part of a bankrupt state, but that is the work of another day. Today I am feeling great sorrow and loss both for myself and the many people who contributed to making ROBERT’s the loving , living and thriving experience it was. I thank you all here for that. I go forward strengthened only by the moral certitude of my integrity , which regardless of the outrageous slanderous accusations of a state bereft intelligence or morals, remains very much in tact. And once again thank you for your many years of support.
Sincerely,
Robert Durkin
Chef , Owner ROBERT’s”

I had an opportunity to speak with the builder Christopher Tofu of Christopher Tofu Design & Build about the design and layout of the home. This is Christopher’s first time working with the Hamptons Showhouse. His wife Hedy who is a Real Estate Broker with Sotheby’s International found out they were seeking candidates, so they submitted the house over the winter and the organizers decided this was the house and that is how it got started. What a beautiful selection, the more I look at the house the more I like it. There are 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, the doors in each of the rooms are custom made and not your standard 1 3/8 door. You will notice that half of the house is vertical and the other half is horizontal…Christopher indicates that they wanted to break up the line and give it more of a Modern Style, stand out from all of the other Hamptons luxury homes, they wanted to be different. You can hear more of my conversation with Christopher in the video above. NHB_9467a

I then went to speak to Keith Baltimore the designer of the Master Bath, another one of my favorite rooms in this gorgeous home. It was a bathroom fit for a Hamptons Home, Keith said a bathroom fit for a Prince and Princess. I loved the shag carpet by Stanton Carpet, the oversized Vanity Table that was the centerpiece in the room and the chandelier that was breath-taking. Keith’s room was 100% his personality, fun, engaging, stylish, approachable and comfortable. Keith suggested we should do the interview in the tub, but I was being a stick in the mud, next time Keith drinking Champagne of course….

I also had time to speak to Elissa Grayer whose room was Sponsored by Stanton Carpet. Elissa was responsible for the Foyer area, and the staircase to the upstairs..the grand entrance of the house. I loved it, it was warm and inviting, looked like a real family lived here. I had an opportunity to sit and talk with Elissa about new trends in flooring and tips for homeowners seeking to add carpeting to their staircase. Elissa stated she uses Stanton Carpet all of the time for her clients because she loves the mix and match prints, and how they bring a room to life. I love the area Stanton Rug she selected it really stood out in this room. You can hear more of my conversation with Elissa in the video above.

This Modern built Barn House is 6500 sq, ft, 7 bedroom, 8 bathroom house, on 3.4 acres complete with finished lower level, playroom, large exercise room, movie theatre, tennis court & swimming pool. Many homes this size feel cold and somewhat un-inviting, but this house felt very warm and comfortable. NHB_9069Overall my favorite designed rooms were the Foyer Area, the Dinning room, the Living Room, the Kitchen, the Master Bedroom, Master Bathroom and the back deck area, I love Frontgate and I am told they were a Sponsor for most of the outdoor furniture used.
