It’s late… but the blog must go on!!!

Ok, i’m blogging really really late. it”s 10:26pm on a Monday night and I’m typing about what’s going on in the Hamptons. I was running around like a lunatic all weekend working with some renters hoping to cash in on some last minute deals and buyers who are finding out, it’s really a good time to buy! Housing is on sale and so is money!

While the weather wasn’t exactly great… It was still a typical Hamptons weekend. Traffic was backed up from East to Southampton and there was a half hour wait at the Citarella’s parking lot.

So what else… Heterick Martin’s School’s Out benefit was a hit on Saturday.. Annie’s grand opening in Southampton was packed…. The new Saturday Soiree at the Lodge had a good turnout in spite of the weather and competing with “School’s Out” … I’m sure it will be packed next week.
Billy Joel held an exhibition of his motorcycles in Sag Harbor and unless he’s giving me one for free, I really could care less. Even if he does give me one for free.. I’m still not sure I care.
One piece of good news… the site of the former remediation project and “Gas Globe” in Sag harbor is now the site of additional village parking. Whoo Hooo. Sorry, I’m off to bed but i’ve done my duty.
Finally, I hate award shows but last night’s Tony Awards were actually entertaining. I was shocked and I have a whole new appreciation of Doogie Howser, Neil Patrick Harris. My one final comment is how did something as utterly awful as “BILLY ELLIOTT” win best musical?? My sixth grade musical version of “Heaven Can Wait” was better. Sad… sad… sad… kind of like today’s blog.



Stuff to do this Friday… I’m too frantic to be humorous!

So what to do this weekend???? One great event is on Saturday… The Hetrick Martin Institute, home to the Harvey Milk school in NYC is hosting it’s “Schools Out” party. It will be held at the beautiful home of Peter Wilson and Scott Sanders – 189 Further Lane, East Hampton.. It’s starts at 6pm and goes til 8:30pm. You can buy tickets at the door with cash, credit card or check… from a valid bank account of course!!! If you want more details on the organization or the event, I encourage you to visit the web site:
Also.. if you’re really bored my new favorite video in the world is on YOUTUBE.COM. It’s a literal lyrical version of singer Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart.” While I love the song the video is one Velveeta short of Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield” but it does come close! To quote one line “the gayest man on earth would find this over the top!” It also has a great line about “Spinning Ninjas.” Don’t ask… watch

Finally, a little real estate news. Rentals for the season are up by about 40% or more. While the prices are not what they used to be… renters are coming out to take advantage of the Hampton’s Blue Light Specials. But do me one favor folks.. please don’t offer $.40 cents on the dollar. Things haven’t gone that low. You might want to try Mastic instead.
