Life on Long Island
Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the Hamptons are awash with massive parties that can involve waiting on long lines, hoping for friendly doormen and spending thousands just to sit down. On the other hand, there are often lots of smaller get-togethers that are open to all and cost nothing to attend.
To experience one of those latter, less-infuriating lounge-outs, a good option to consider...Read more »
In case you missed it last year – or maybe you loved it and are ready for another go-round -- Navy Beach in Montauk is bringing back its “American Riviera” bash, but this time giving it a full weekend.
Unlike the single-day 2012 affair, this year's version runs from noon until sunset on both Saturday and Sunday (July 13-14). Inspired by the French Riviera – the shoreline stretch that includes...Read more »
When the Huntington-based ”SparkBoom” arts initiative kicked off during the spring earlier this year (April 1), it promised a calendar of events chock-full of creativity, and its latest gathering – set for July 13 – is looking like it will live up to that guarantee.
Starting at 7 p.m., the party is a celebration of a new exhibit titled “The Times They Were A Changing-1960s: Huntington’s Response.”...Read more »
When looking to cross paths with stars in the Hamptons, most of the time it’s best to visit the hot restaurants and hangouts . . . but sometimes the more mundane spaces can also provide some celebrity spotting as well.
A case in point would be that on Friday, July 5, afternoon, singer and actor Justin Timberlake and his wife actress Jessica Biel were noticed strolling across the Wainscott...Read more »
Making trips into Manhattan and Brooklyn to enjoy the city’s cutting edge nightlife has always been a regular move by Long Islanders – as while there’s plenty to do in Nassau and Suffolk, NYC remains one of the world’s main destinations for both fabulous and offbeat parties. However, once the summer rolls around, a healthy portion of the New York City DJs, hosts, performers, staffers and other club...Read more »
It may seem hard to believe, but the summer of 2013 is already nearing the halfway point — and if you've yet to take in a Hamptons bash, one of the season’s most anticipated annual affairs is set to return for another round on Friday, June 5 in Montauk.
It’s called “Shark Attack Sounds” (SAS) and this summer’s edition will be its 11th.
Reportedly, it began as a simple Ditch Plains beach...Read more »
It’s getting to the point where country music events on Long Island are expected happenings, rather than a part of a new trend in nightlife (as it was a few years ago, when there were virtually none). However, the latest affair to arrive on the scene is definitely a bit different, as it takes place outdoors and by the water.
Freeport’s Nautical Mile has a long-standing tradition of big crowds,...Read more »
With July Fourth falling on a Thursday this year, some night spots are treating the day before like a Friday.
For anyone hanging out in the Hamptons during this upcoming extended holiday weekend, Georgica Restaurant and Lounge in Wainscott has an event set for Wednesday that is both bash and benefit.

When classifying a place like the Cedar Beach Bar & Grill (CBBG) in Mount Sinai, some might use the term “hidden gem,” while others might even call it an “oasis.”
In this case, both terms do definitely apply.
The Long Island Sound is nothing like the South Shore when it comes to waterside nightlife or summer fun -- as while there are numerous clubs, bars and eateries found along...Read more »
It seems almost impossible to imagine that only five years ago, there were virtually no country music events happening anywhere on Long Island (except at the now-defunct Matty T’s in Commack, which was at one time the only venue that featured line-dancing on LI); in 2013 there are several parties a week in Nassau and Suffolk counties that revolve around the honky-tonk sound.
Most of these...Read more »
