Hamptons party-crashing industry now feeling the COVID crunch

Hardened Hamptons party crashers are having a harder time getting into VIP bashes during the pandemic.

We’re told the clandestine crashers — accustomed to hobnobbing with the East End who’s who by giving false names or managing to sneak past security — have been stymied by stricter guest-list policies, especially in the Hamptons, where people have been hosting parties more quietly.

“The guest lists are so tight,” said a source. “It will be 100 [people] max, and no access to inside the houses. The hosts, and people running the party, know every single person.”

The insider added: “All the usual party crashers are freaking out … There are no parties in the city, and the ones in the Hamptons are unattainable.”
