The Bridge Car Show brought epic whippings to Topping Rose House

No it was not jerry seinfeldthe House. But it looked like the parking lot of a very wealthy car nut at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton. Except that everyone was able to park on the grass. And these cars came from a number of collectors, some of whom had proudly displayed them the day before at the Bridge Golf Club, also in Bridgehampton.

After a weekend of shows and rallies around the Hamptons, The Bridge presented a ticketed Sunday event at Topping Rose House.

Past calamari, fancy steak and a very nice tomato salad were part of a brunch garden party thanks to Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Co-founder of all weekend festivities, Jeffery Einhorn brought a Porsche. “It’s Irish Green” he says proudly. It was next to another older Porsche in electric blue. Well that’s what it sounded like, I’m sure Stuttgart has a fancier name for it.

Vintage Ferraris, Lamborghinis and even a Shelby or two were scattered around Topping Rose’s “back yard.”

Einhorn said the brunch helps top the weekend off with a charity component.

“We are doing two things that give back on Sunday, the first is Hamptons Cars and Coffee at the Historical Society. Something all car enthusiasts could go for.

The afternoon filled with photo opportunities benefited Southampton Youth Services. The huge car event the day before at The Bridge benefits something called – wait for it – The Bridge Golf Foundation.

“This is the first year that we have a second charity,” Einhorn continued. “So having something for the kids was also a phenomenal way to use the connections we developed in the automotive community and give back to everyone,” he added.

His connection to the weather service which had near-perfect temperatures and humidity all weekend?

“No comment, but it was expensive,” he said with a smile.
