Creepy and kooky, sweaty and celeby -- it's all happening in the Hamptons this weekend:

The last studio of late artist Charles Addams -- creator of "The Addams Family" -- still stands in Sagaponack on a property known as "The Swamp." Get a look at the preserved house and grounds (including the pet cemetery) at the Conscience Point Shellfish Hatchery's cocktail party there Friday night, 5:13 p.m.-8:13 p.m. (it's Friday the 13th, after all). Tickets are $100 and include local wines, seafood and live music (631-807-9150 or email cpshbenefit@gmail.com).


It's not your typical Hamptons cocktail mixer -- fitness instructor Edina "Kinga" Agoston will have the masses sweating for charity as she leads "Heaven Can Wait," a Zumbathon benefit at 7 Friday night at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Hampton Bays (165 Ponquogue Ave.). A $10 donation gets you in, proceeds benefit nonprofit organizations such as The Coalition for Women's Cancers at Southampton Hospital, Heaven Can Wait, Lucia's Angels and the Ellen Hermanson Breast Center. Wear sneakers, dress comfortably and bring water -- details at zumbawithkinga.com.
