4th of July (or Wet Hot American Summer)

Photos by Zac Sebastian

I just got back from one of the best 4th of July weekends I can remember. We started out in Montauk, went to a private Pete Yorn concert at Sole East, ate a lot of great seafood, went to Ben Watts' big annual 4th of July party, took in tons of pooltime, then headed over to Southampton for Kanon Organic Vodka's party hosted by Matt Kliegman and Carlos Quirarte of The Smile. Pictures above are from that party. It was basically a quintessential all-American pool party with a never-ending supply of vodka cocktails, loads of delicious food, hot girls and boys in their swimsuits, water guns, firecrackers, American flag, awesome DJs (Binki Shapiro, Chrissie Miller, Harley Viera-Newton, etc.), ping-pong tables, adorable dogs running around (i.e. Suz, duh), and most importantly, lots of good friends.
