“People are really partying again, they’re eating like savages,” said Janet O’Brien, who owns a namesake catering and event company that serves the East End. “It’s something that happens after a recession.” She also traces big appetites of her clients to their amped-up workout regimens, including spinning, biking, surfing, and paddle boarding. O’Brien herself “only has time for” one hour a week of personal training during high season in the Hamptons. The rest of the year she skis and hikes in Aspen and surfs in Peru. She ate two dinners at the Watermill Center benefit: hers, and the entree left at the vacant seat next to hers. [Bloomberg]
