In the Hamptons this Saturday? Why not check out Team Jack Spade take on Team Steven Alan on Steven Alan's home turf. They're going head to head in an epic King Pong tournament starting at noon.
Is "King Pong" ping pong or is it some sort of hybrid something or other? Maybe they're merely competing to be the King of [ping] Pong? Whatevs, we just loved the image; and love the idea of a bunch of vaguely-hip bearded dudes in Steven Alan shirting putting down their waxed canvas Jack Spade totes to destroy each other. With tiny felted paddles.
