Usher stopped by Almond in Bridgehampton on Friday night in search of a late night meal, but unfortunately for the Hands of Stone actor, the kitchen had already closed. He was in luck though, as the manager gave him directions to Almond's closely located new bar Zigmund's, whose kitchen remains open until 1 a.m. Usher ended up at the new Bridgehampton locale, where he dined on bar menu items and even stuck around to hang out with a bunch of the crew afterwards.

On Friday, honoree Janna Bullock hosted a private Hamptons dinner party in support of Hour Children's upcoming annual East End Dream Extreme Fundraiser on Saturday, September 17th. The gathering was attended by Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter, Ramona Singer, Nicole Miller and many more.
