Some thoughts and such from my excursions around the Island this past weekend:

1) Rihanna put on a heck of a show at Jones Beach on Sunday night. Ke$ha had nearly as vocal a crowd there, too, as the opening act. As for Rihanna's stage show, the dudes on stilts with crazy pants and additional walking sticks with matching crazy pants for "Disturbia" was very impressive.

2) The cajun fries at Five Guys are worth the investment, and this is coming from a dude who believes french fries are among the most overrated fast foods in history.

3) Walking out of the Regal Cinemas at The Arches in Deer Park, you'll see a Haagez-Daaz on the right side and a Red Mango on the left. I wonder if they have little battles like the bars Cheers and Gary's Old Town Tavern did on "Cheers." If not, they should. It would be a nice morale boost for employees.

Here's a YouTube video of the Rihanna concert from someone with far better seats than I had. If you were at the show, post your video link in the comments.
