2) Georgica celebrated co-executive chef Robert Hesse's return to primetime on Saturday, fêting the reality star with a cocktail party in his restaurant's lounge. Hesse was back on the small screen last week, rejoining the cast of Gordon Ramsay's very own Hell's Kitchen. [CurbedWire Inbox]
3) Cyclists ruled the roads on Saturday morning as the Wounded Warrior Ride shut down streets and pedaled through the Hamptons. Created in honor of Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, a Sag Harbor native killed in Iraq last year, the 28 and 62 mile rides benefit wounded soldiers and their families, and raise awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.

4) The 16th Annual Water Mill Summer Benefit held court on Saturday with guests and performers embracing the event's Inferno theme. The fire-red clad crew combined the theater, art, fashion and design worlds to celebrate the Byrd Hoffman Watermill Foundation. Installation art, cocktails, fire-eaters and a silent auction made for an appropriately 'artistic' evening. [Hamptons Online]
