Cinema Society’s Screening of David Crosby: Remember My Name in East Hampton

Living legend and classic folk rock star David Crosby was joined by longtime fans during the Cinema Society’s summer screening of a new documentary at East Hampton’s Main Street theater. Produced by Cameron Crowe and directed by A.J. Eaton, David Crosby: Remember My Name portrays the ups and downs of Crosby’s career, which peaked as he cofounded Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young during the 1960s, and remains strong to this day. Since debuting at the Sundance Film Festival, the film has received widespread praise from critics and fans alike. After the screening, which left Crosby’s wife nostalgic and teary-eyed, moviegoers were welcomed at hotspot Moby’s for an after-party and fireworks overlooking the Maidstone Harbor Marina—a perfect setting to toast the uplifting film. Guests that evening included Dylan Lauren, Brooke Shields, Martha Stewart, Jane Krakowski, Mischa Barton, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Rachel Zoe, and more.

Swedish Midsummer White Party at Tao Downtown

If you’ve ever been to a Tao Group event, you know to expect an extravagant party. On June 19, Tao Downtown was completely transformed into a whimsical wonderland; a long tunnel-like entry filled with lights and suspended flowers of all colors led into the main dining room, where people sat at banquet style tables in all white attire. Servers—who donned floral gowns and bikinis—kept drinks flowing throughout the evening. The occasion: the Swedish tradition of toasting summer solstice—and although the club was not quite as lit up as Sweden’s sunny sky, the energy perfectly reflected the theme of the celebration. After dinner was served, the venue turned into a nightclub with beats by DJ Chantel Jeffries. The annual bash has become such a popular summer kick-off that, for the first time, Tao presented its Swedish Midsummer white party at Tao’s Chicago and Los Angeles locations.
