Hamptons Interactive Brunch: The Fourth Time’s The Charm!

The Hamptons Interactive Brunch presented by Vanessa Gordon of East End Taste and super party planners Sean Koski and Brian Kelly from Tickets2Events is one of the most memorable events of the Hamptons summer season. It’s been held four times so far and you never know what to expect as an influencer except that the food is always fantastic—that is because it is held at the legendary Baron’s Cove right on the water in Sag Harbor. The invitation-only private event is an exclusive opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of mixing, mingling and eating a gourmet brunch menu paired with Holistic Spirits, Origen Vodka and other cutting edge beverages.

You can also count on great lifestyles brands showing off their goods in a private side room and guests getting to do some great sampling from these tables! Participating brands at the event included Kaleiya 14 K gold kaleidoscopes with real gems inside creating designs (pictured above), Empower Bodycare, Sara Shaka fine jewelry and Vivrelle high end bags. Every year the Beachwaver crew is on hand to do hair with their world-famous hot tools and this year guests were also treated to manis with the natural nail polish brand, Fresh Coat Beauty. They have an amazing array of colors, no chemical order and dry really fast!

The VIPs got the fabulous balcony view of Sag Harbor from the terrace at the brunch, but influencers got to mingle with them on the step and repeat outside the event and after they were done eating. The VIP guests were Vanessa Gordon (Hamptons Tastemaker) LeeAnne Locken (Real Housewives of Dallas), Kara Alloway, Jeff Perala, Sean Koski, Brian Kelly, Caroline Brooks (Real Housewives of Dubai) Meredith O’Connor, Braunwyn Windham Burke, Barbara Kavovit, Hannah Berner, Eric Goldie, Andrew Warren and Dr. Jennifer DiLandro.

There were plenty of stands serving their alcoholic beverages, most of them on the light side like DeLola’s by J. Lo, which contains vodka. The berry flavor has now become a real go-to for me. It only contains 70 calories in an eight ounce portion, has no sugar and is low carb. You can’t beat that! I had five glasses, LOL!

One of my favorite booths was Sip Channe—this brand is a no sugar, no sulfate rose wine that is light and low calorie. It’s so good that it’s hard to believe that it’s a healthy product. Their gorgeous white flower covered cart was one of my favorite displays at the Interactive Brunch.

As mentioned, the food was fabulous and the Couscous With Avocado was one of the best vegan items that I have ever had for brunch. Those around me seemed to op for the legendary lobster rolls and shrimp tacos!

You never leave the Hamptons Interactive without a load of luxury lifestyle loot! Brands in the VIP luxury gift bag included Nutrafol (the country’s Number One hair growth supplement), Sobel Skin RX, Advocare Spark vitamin and amino acid supplements, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Honey Mama’s chocolate bars, and many more. There was also a raffle featuring brands like Meyer, SANG, and Divine Chocolate, with the grand prize being a Litter Robot that retails for $700. That last item was very appropriate since the brunch benefited Victory 4 The Voiceless, a Staten Island pet shelter. My favorite item in the bag? An immensely comfortable queen size OmniPillow.

On the way out, guests got a real treat—the Buddha Berry truck featuring a large choice of soft serve that you got to “pump” yourself and a huge choice of toppings! Guess who hits the coconut and nut toppings super hard? I got a mix of berry and vanilla soft serve and was very tempted to go back and get second. Buddha Berry has a store in East Hampton that I strongly recommend and the truck can be rented out for your own events. That’s my pal, well-respected beauty pageant coach (who just worked with some of the recent winners of the Miss Chinese pageant at Mohegan Sun) and influencer Yili Hsu on the right into all this cold deliciousness!

Keep an eye on the IG account @hamptonsinteractive brunch for news about the 2024 event! You can count on it happening the first Saturday of August each year! It’s a great way to relax plus mix and mingle with celebs including some Real Housewives! You can even pose with them on the step and repeat (if that is something you really love as much as influencers do)!
