On the con­trary, she is not a stranger to more tran­quil and in­ti­mate get-to­geth­ers. El­e­gant sit-down din­ners hap­pen in her sum­mer home in Martha’s Vine­yard, Mas­sachusetts, where she in­vites guests at least two weeks be­fore, and pre­pares clas­sic name cards, a seat­ing ar­range­ment, and a five-course meal. “I enjoy it. I’m a big cook. I love go­ing to the lo­cal fish mar­ket there early in the morn­ing to get the scal­lops that have just been brought up by the fish­er­men. I do a lot of grilling in the back­yard. I go to Morn­ing Glory mar­ket to get veg­eta­bles. And I do all of th­ese on my bike,” she says. “I’m a fa­natic for amaz­ing, or­ganic pro­duce and in­gre­di­ents. If there are no amaz­ing in­gre­di­ents avail­able, though, I won’t even bother to cook. It doesn’t in­spire me to put to­gether a meal. I just moved to Manila, and I have yet to find where they sell my fa­vorite may­on­naise.”

There’s noth­ing worse than go­ing to a din­ner where you can’t really eat and enjoy.” A good host should understand the needs of some peo­ple and check ahead. Fail­ing to do so can make it very un­com­fort­able for both the host and the guests. Sab­rina ad­mits that she has a tra­di­tional ap­proach with plan­ning din­ners: She starts with hand­writ­ten in­vites, fol­lowed by seat­ing ar­range­ments. “I am su­per anal about that. Su­per.

“My Glit­ter Rock birth­day party two years ago at Pan­gaea was mem­o­rable. I was chan­nel­ing a Mot­ley Crew-Lady Gaga com­bi­na­tion and had a blast do­ing my own makeup and sport­ing a near one-foot tall mo­hawk.”
