We’ll be lazing around the manse today, awaiting delivery of the antiques we snapped up yesterday—but we’re just conserving energy, as we have a busy evening ahead! The artist Ross Bleckner is hosting a benefit for the AIDS Community Research Initiative of America at his home; the Champagne, we understand, is provided by Veuve Clicquot. Meanwhile, the recently wed Hamptons International Film Festival big cheese Alec Baldwin is to present Detropia, a documentary about the city of Detroit’s attempts to rebound from calamity. The ironically staged screening, at East Hampton’s Guild Hall, is to feature a discussion afterward with Mr. Baldwin and the filmmakers.
ACRIA benefit at Ross Bleckner’s residence (Sagaponack), 6pm cocktails on the lawn, 8:30pm dinner in the studio; tickets and information can be found at acria.org. Detropia screening, Guild Hall, 158 Main Street (East Hampton), 8pm; tickets and information can be found at guildhall.org.
