In 2015, Lexi Ritsch and Louisa Young, founders of Hamptons Aristocrat, made a name for themselves in the farm fresh food business by introducing a new way to entertain on the East End.

The pair bring locally sourced, organic and colorful fare to their customers door, whether for a party, rehearsal dinner, wedding, cocktail soiree or other special occasion — served from their 1969 Aristocrat Caravan Cocktail Bar.

New this season, Lexi and Louisa are launching Farm-to-Fete delivered, a solution for entertaining and dining-in this summer. The service will provide all the ingredients to create the perfect menu for hosting a party or a quiet dinner for two. (more…)

Have you ever considered what would you might do to salvage your sinking career?

How about taking part in a film that puts you in a compromising position in the most literal of terms?

In Neil LaBute’s play “The Money Shot,” that’s the question facing Steve and Karen, two fading Hollywood stars whose outsized egos take center stage wherever they go, much to the dismay of their respective long-suffering spouses who are inevitably dragged along for the ride. LaBute’s 2014 Off-Broadway play is currently enjoying its Long Island premiere in a Center Stage production at the Southampton Cultural Center. (more…)
