This weekend, baubles, ballgames, boogie and "Buatta" are the way to go:

1. Every summer Hamptons Collegiate Baseball of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League provides free ballgames from June 4 to July 28. Teams representing Southampton, Westhampton, Sag Harbor, Riverhead and the North Fork scrap it out over a 40-game regular season schedule. The league features some of the top college baseball talent in the country. For a taste, check out the Southampton Breakers as they take on the Westhampton Aviators at 5 p.m. Friday at the Hite Athletic Complex/Westhampton Elementary (379 Mill Rd., Westhampton Beach,

2. For one night, the rowdy crowd that usually dominates the scene at Casey's (223 Montauk Hwy., Westhampton, 631-288-3310, evening 516-380-3141) will make room for a disco party. Starting at 7 p.m. Saturday, "Boogie Night" will feature radio celebrity and comedian "Goumba" Johnny Sialiano plus DJ Johnny Rocks in an evening of '70s classic sounds, hors d'oeuvres, a raffle and best-dressed prizes. Tickets are $30 in advance; $45 cash at the door.

3. Mariah Carey, Barbara Walters and Billy Joel are only a few of the rich and famous folk that have hired Mario Buatta -- "The Prince of Chintz" -- as their interior designer. If you'd like a chance to hear the design star's thoughts on how exteriors affect his work, he'll be among the day's speakers at the Parrish Art Museum's (25 Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631-283-2118, "Landscape Pleasures Fundraiser" Saturday. The symposium is 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and there will be a garden tour on Sunday (at various locations) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. $200. For special sponsor ($350), patron ($600) and benefactor ($1,000), you will also be able to visit the benefit committee's cocktail party Saturday.

4.
