Last Saturday night was my friend, Dr. Carl’s Annual House Party & Birthday Bash, in Sag Harbor.

Carl and I grew up together and I had the pleasure of living in his beautiful Post-Modern six bedroom house for four years. Carl is not just my friend, everyone knows Carl. If you have ever really partied in places, both near and far, like NY, the Hamptons, Miami, Vegas, LA or Rio, St. Tropez, Mykonos, Sardinia and Ibiza, of course, well then you know Carl, too.

This was his eighth annual soiree and it does not get much better than this-so if you weren’t there-well, make sure you are on his list or mine, next year. What made this year’s party so exceptional was a combination of beautiful people, great food, amazing music, and a breathtaking setting…..

He recently completed, what appears to be a million dollar landscape renovation, on his three acre property in North Side Hills, which included a new hot tub, beautifully hand-cut stone walls, a custom built fire pit and a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen. Add some hip lounge furniture by the pool, and the stage was set for the perfect party!

Several hundred guests came to eat, drink and dance the night away while listening to the great mixes by my favorite DJ, DJ Savas, of Trata fame, who was spinning. Once again, Carl hired private chef Roger Weidemann (rogersuperchef@yahoo.com) who almost sole handedly, prepared and served grilled lobsters and steaks, lemon-ginger marinated Chilean sea bass, mussels marinara, jumbo shrimp cocktail, penne alla vodka, grilled vegetables, great salads and more. After the feast , the party “spilled” into the pool and well, you know the rest, it’s kinda like Vegas…
