I keep hearing everyone talk about how “The Hamptons have changed so much over the past few years.” Well, I beg to differ. I’ve compiled a list of things that are still the same out east. And remember as Carly Simon sang, “these are the good old days.”
The best steak place in town is still The Palm.
Sushi is still free Thursday nights at Bamboo.
The bagels at Hampton Bagels on North Main are still the best.
The staff at Bagel Buoy in Sag Harbor is still nasty.
The American Hotel still has a great Saturday night bar crowd.
The lines at Walbaums in East Hampton are still way too long.
Friday night at Almond is still a bad place for DWF’s to meet SWM’s but hey, it’s still fun!
Howie at Paradise is still the best bar tender.
Driving out on Friday night to the Hamptons can still take almost as much time as flying from NY to LA. Thank god we know Howie!
I’ll still have to wait in line to get into Georgica.
There are still no $40,000 oceanfront summer rentals in Bridgehampton despite what your friend’s friend is saying.
The East Hampton police still hit the beach at 9:01a on weekends to ticket dog owners.
You still need a mortgage to get a lunch at the Golden Pear.
And finally… the donuts at Scoop Du Jour are still just as good as when they were Dresen’s.
So stop your belly aching folks and just enjoy the summer!!!
Finally… If you read this blog than you know about Russell my new terrorist… I mean dog. Anyway, he’s here thanks to the folks at Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons. Russell is also a big martini drinker so it only makes sense that he and I attend the first annual “Martini’s for Mutts” to benefit the Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund, on Saturday, Aug. 29, from 5 p.m to 8 p.m. Yeah, I’m giving you plenty of advance notice.
Enjoy an evening of poolside cocktails to benefit this most worthy cause at the home of Edward Montak and Michelle Neufeld, at 214 Toppings Path in Sagaponack.
Last Chance Animal Rescue Fund is a charitable, not-for-profit organization, created to save the lives of animals. The organization states “We rescue animals that are located in “KILL” facilities and underwrite the costs of relocating them to “NO KILL” facilities in hopes of finding them a forever family. The minimum donation is $30. RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, look for last years weekly afternoon tea dance to be relocated to Bamboo in East Hampton. Details to come…
