And suddenly it was Labor Day! The seemingly endless Hamptons weekends filled with charity events came to a screeching halt just like that. Even though I adore great parties, what I’ll miss most are the long beach walks when I stroll for hours through isolated stretches of pristine beach passing seagull nesting areas scattered with driftwood and grand beach mansions with their decorative weathervanes. Of course, there’s always the Hamptons Film Festival to look forward to (coming up on Columbus Day weekend). Here’s a little look back, a roundup of glamorous events in August.
Probably the most unusual charity party of the summer was La La Land thrown by Sir Ivan……

That’s what you get when you take eight giant ladybug sculptured cars that change colors and scatter them all over the grounds of a medieval fortress in the Hamptons. On top of that, a 30 horse carousel increased the magical atmosphere of ‘La La Land,’ the theme of the party and the name of my new single and music video.

At any other location, the crowd would have garnered triple-takes as it filtered down the driveway. Wrapped in feather boas, disguised in Venetian masks, scantily clad and ornamented in head-to-toe body paint: this was not your average set of partygoers. As the guests approached Sir Ivan’s castle, they paused to pick up drinks at the bar, marvelling meanwhile at the color-changing, ladybug-shaped golf carts festooning the property. Armed with their beverages of choice, they were now ready to fete the release of Sir Ivan’s latest single and music video, “La La Land.” a perfect HAMPTONS summer close to remember…-

So we already told you all about Sir Ivan “Peaceman” Wilzig and his party throwing ways, but just in case you still needed to get a better feel of what exactly is going on behind those castle walls, we have a few photos to help you out. Last Saturday he threw a medieval themed soiree for Mina Otsuka. Looks… interesting

There were Court Jesters, little people, Rapunzel, fire eaters, drinks were served in chalices, wonderful music was provided by DJ Lee Kalt, and I even saw a wizard! For those of you who are not familiar with Sir Ivan he is is a musician who is best known for techno remixes, and the founder of the nonprofit Peaceman Foundation (where he spreads peace through partying-Mo approves). He is notorious for throwing amazing parties in the Hamptons at his castle which is considered to be the “Playboy Mansion of the East Coast”. The castle even has an authentic medieval dungeon that was on display like a museum exhibit- very naughty. He hath goods enough!

Gimme Shelter, by Jennifer Gould Keil, ran in the New York Post on 2-17-11
We hear . . . That recording artist/caped philanthropist Ivan Wilzig, also known as Sir Ivan, is unveiling a dragon goddess statue by Roby Braun at his 15,000-square-foot medieval-style castle in Water Mill. It will sit in the center pool and be illuminated by the castle’s flaming bowls.
I’ve been friends with all three gentleman for many years, and I’m sure had I ever owned a large home instead of just an apartment in Miami Beach, I would have qualified to be the 4th musketeer.
I started off the evening very achy, not feeling well, thinking it was from just having played my first competitive game of basketball in years, but then I felt myself developing a sore throat and fever.
Yet, being a professional partier I held in there, literally watching hundreds of the sexiest women on earth parade by. If Victoria’s Secret had sexy “devils” instead of “angels,” these girls would have qualified. Brazilians, Italians, Colombians, Argentineans, Russians, and more. Name a country and it had at least one half-naked bombshell representing it. After observing more than an eyeful, I departed early, knowing that if I got any sicker I would miss the opportunity to follow up with some of the more flirtatious ones the next day. And we wouldn’t want that to happen…would we?
Life at best is short. PARTY TILL YOU DIE!

The white cause is the right cause – to eliminate AIDS all around the world – a thought as pure and white as the driven snow (real snow being perhaps the only white thing that can’t be found at the white party in Vizcaya on Thanksgiving weekend).
While the costumes were truly amazing, each individual white outfit seemed insignificant to me. What impressed me was that the group as a whole reminded me of an army of white knights on a noble quest to help the world eliminate the pain and suffering caused by AIDS. It may have seemed as though everyone was just there to have a good time and dance the night away, but each guest gladly made a donation to dine and dance, a donation that has contributed to healing the world year after year.
This night was historic! It was not the final white party ever, but it was the final white party to take place at Vizcaya (costs have become prohibitive at one of the most incredible properties in the world). See you next year, wherever the beautiful white doves of peace and love decide to build their new party nest.
