Labor Day weekend, and already the polo fields have dried up of Argentines, as they’re safely locked away in secret rooms inside Palm Beach cougars’ pool houses, but luckily, you can still catch one last bite, er, glimpse, of Nacho! Everyone’s favorite Argentine polo player and Ralph Lauren model extraordinaire shows up (sans hot Argentine wife, we hope!) for a polo exhibition and celebrity chef tasting with expert marrier, er, cooker, Katie Lee Joel; Four Seasons gatekeeper Julian Niccolini; Sam Talbot of Montauk’s much-maligned Surf Lodge; and “that’s Mr. Chow to you, son,” not to mention “tennis stars in town for the U.S. Open.” Later, you may have been wondering, because we certainly have: What happened to Chris Isaak, the hunk of the catchily tragic tunes and sepia seaside music video with a topless Helena Christensen in the early ’90s, back when we were clicking over to MTV during Saved by the Bell commercials? Turns out he’s strumming tonight at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center! Those far from the sand might like to endure the one-man comedy show Lenny Bruce: Dead & Well at the Bowery Poetry Club. Said organizer and poet Kathi Georges, when we called her up: Peter Carlaftes, he channels Lenny Bruce, he’s come back from heaven and he knows everything that happened before and after. … He knows who won the election, what really happened on 9/11, that the dinosaurs are going to be coming back, and he also knows who killed J.F.K., he reveals for the first time who killed J.F.K.! It’s no one you would expect at all. It’s an amazing revelation.” She continued, of the Bowery Poetry Club: “It’s like the new CBGB’s, but they have a lot more poetry and word shows. And less spitting!” Here comes September, folks!
