June 7, 2016 | By Annette Hinkle | It’s all about storytelling. A fifth generation Californian, Greg Miller’s ancestors were dairy farmers in the mountainous gold and timber laden regions of the state, and they made their fortune by greasing the logging sluices in the days before the discovery of petroleum.
May 23, 2016 | By Terry Kidder | 1971 280-SE Cabriolet | The first automobiles to boast the now iconic Mercedes-Benz name hit the road running in 1926, following the merger of Karl Benz’s and Gottlieb Daimler’s companies into the Daimler-Benz company. Although, it was actually in 1886 that Karl Benz patented his creation—the very first gas-powered automobile. Hence, the hallmarks of Mercedes-Benz innovation and ingenuity can be traced back to the very dawn of driving.
April 5, 2016 | By Daisy Swan | Who do we each want to be in our lives? And in the lives of our loved ones, and others? What sort of impact do you want to make in the world? These are big questions, I know. And they might make you squirm a little. Or you might find them so familiar because, like so many of the people I work with, you may be struggling with that nagging tug of trying to figure out what your life is all about, at this new time in our history.

March 14, 2016 | By Terry Kidder | 1973 Ferrari Dino 246GTS | Enzo Ferrari founded Scuderia Ferrari in 1929 primarily to build racing cars, focusing totally on ruling the realm of motorsports. In 1947, to feed post-war wanderlust, he created his first Ferrari road car – the 125S, powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine. Throughout the 50’s and 60’s, Ferrari ruled the road and the track, right up to today. Their Formula One cars brought home over 5,000 victories, while building a legend and a luxury brand deemed the first name in performance, the last word in style— pure seduction, Italian Style.
February 4, 2016 | By Colin Ambrose, Estia’s Little Kitchen | For years I’d been aware of the lakeside restaurant. In the beginning it was Asian inspired. The portions back then were large – in a way, a fitting match for the always-boisterous crowd. With a new menu and quieter room, I’ve found the reinvented East by Northeast to be a delightful excuse to make the drive to Montauk and relax at what I consider to be the best tableside sunset view on the East End.
January 18, 2016 | By Colleen Saidman Yee | I always try to be mindful that we are very fortunate people, living in a beautiful area, while also being in the company of the world’s economic, social, artistic and political elite. It zaps me into thinking about santosha—“contentment”—which is yoga’s second niyama or “observance.” When I was younger, I spent most of my time thinking, I’ll be content when I have all A+s. Or, I’ll be content when my boyfriend proposes to me. Or, I’ll be content when I have enough money. You can wait your whole life and never happen upon contentment.

October 4, 2015 | By Colin Ambrose Owner, Estia’s Little Kitchen | I’ve always enjoyed, and admittedly been curious, about the chef’s very clear messaging out front, hanging from signs linked on a chain: Open Tonight; Bouillabaisse; Lamb T-bone; Tonight All-Night 3 Course Price Fix. So often I’ve wanted to stop-in, but it’s never worked out because I always seem to be coming or going…until now.
