SOLDIER RIDE (Ocean View Farm, 551 Montauk Highway, Amagansett)

One of the most worthwhile (and fun) events in the Hamptons takes place on Saturday in Amagansett. The Soldier Ride, dedicated to Lance Corporal Jordan C. Haerter who was was killed in action April 22, 2008 in Ramadi, Iraq, is a 30/60 mile bike ride (or 5k walk) with proceeds going to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Registration begins at 7am with the ride beginning at 9. Cost to participate is $25 for the walks or for those under 21 and $50 for the rides for those than can buy beer legally. [LINK]

CHEFS AND CHAMPAGNE (139 Sagg Road, Sagaponack)

We've been waiting for this one for a while. On Saturday, at 6pm, The Wolffer Estate will play host to The James Beard Foundation's "Chefs and Champagne" dinner. This year, they're celebrating television personality and author of In My Kitchen, JBF Award Winner Ted Allen, and the judges of Food Network's Chopped. Tickets are on the pricey side, though. It's $275 for general admission ($200 of you're a JPF member). [LINK]
THE GREAT BONAC FIREWORKS SHOW (Three Mile Harbor, East Hampton)
