Life on Long Island
When it comes to the Hamptons, after Labor Day Weekend passes by, talk of the “summer being over” is spurred by the many seasonal residents who quickly pack LIRR trains, Jitney buses, company cars and other forms of transportation to return to their city homes – with many already gone as soon as the day following Labor Day.
However, anyone who lives in or visits Sag Harbor this weekend can...Read more »
If you’ve had any late-night fun this past week, you may have thought to yourself, “I should have brought a light jacket.”
In what could be called a precisely-timed piece of synchronicity, the official summer social season ended on Tuesday (Sept. 3), and the first weekend following, a slight, post-sunset chill appeared in the nightly air. It is true that many of the waterside, Fire Island...Read more »
According to an Aug. 31 announcement on its Facebook page, the Southampton nightspot South Pointe has reportedly closed its doors for good after a final weekend of parties.

By Tuesday, Sept. 3, the 2013 Hamptons summer club scene will be officially over.

There was a time when it seemed most people solely played poker in their basements -- a notion that invokes visions of flipping chips, warm drinks and wafting cigar smoke while sitting in a dark room with wood paneling and tiny windows.

With Labor Day fast on the way, many of the bigger, celebrity-packed Hamptons get-togethers have already come and gone — but one of the most popular parties is still yet to take place.

Of all the many celebrity-powered fundraisers taking place this coming weekend in the Hamptons, the “Foster a Legacy” event may be the most star-powered.
Set for Saturday, Aug. 17, it will benefit the Compound Foundation — an organization that works to support and inspire youth that are growing up in group homes or foster care. Taking place at a private estate in East Hampton, the night will...Read more »
It’s always risky to crown a yet-to-happen event as “the ___ of the year” -- but if the acts scheduled to appear at that particular occasion are either legendary or currently hot (or both), it makes such a designation a lot less likely to wind up as hyperbole.
For example, on Aug. 19, the All For The East End (AFTEE) group is throwing a dance party, and it could very well end up being the...Read more »
It’s no secret that there are unusual, offbeat happenings that are unique to Manhattan – and when you are a devout night scene explorer based here on LI, it almost always takes a journey into NYC to experience endeavors of that ilk.
However, come the summer, when much of the city’s out-and-about crowd makes the Hamptons its warm-weather destination, Long Island receives “pop-up” (as in a temporary...Read more »
With a scheduled lineup of celebrity performers and guests, the annual “Art For Life” gala is set to bring its usual massive party — and a very choice after-party — back to the Hamptons on Saturday, July 27.
