Yep, the snow just melted but already we’re fast approaching the end of the line for the most prized posession of Summer 2013! I’m of course talking about East Hampton Village Beach permits. While the price has risen to $375.00 for this coming season, that hasn’t stopped the rush. While town permits for East Hampton Town and Southampton Village and Town beach permits are unlitmited and they don’t run out, EHV sells about 3000. As of today, there are only about 300 or so permits left. So, if you’re curious how to get a permit and where you can use them, click here. That means there are only about 10% left, sadly I had to use a calculator to figure that out. So unless you want to bike to beach after that Fly Wheel spin class you better hurry!!!
So, while Summer is right around the corner that got me to thinking is it really that bad out here during the season? I mean are the lines at the Golden Pear any longer … are the waiters and waitresses less patient… is the parking lot at King Kullen any less aggressive? Well in my 3rd and final chat with author Steven Gaines and film reviewer and stand up comic Bill McCuddy we addressed the very nature of Hamptons culture… RIGHT OR RUDE!? Which also happens to be the name of Bill’s new web page and facebook fan page. Check it out and let me know what you think.
