Whether you seek the hottest of parties, the coolest of music or a pony ride for the kids, you're in luck: Memorial Day Weekend has arrived -- meaning the East End is 100% open for business. Here are a few good bets for the coming holiday stretch:
1 With eclectic influences and high-energy delivery, the East Hampton-based six-piece Latino rock band Mr. No-Shame has been getting some local radio play. Known to bring in big crowds around the East End, the group is performing at 8 p.m. Saturday at the John Drew Theater of Guild Hall (158 Main St., East Hampton, 631-324-4050, guildhall.org). The showcase is being produced by Crossroads Music, a family-owned music store in Amagansett. Tickets are $20.
2 The fabulous Day & Night party moves this year to the Gurney’s Inn Resort and Spa (290 Old Montauk Hwy., Montauk, 212-201-1222, dayandnightlife.com). From noon to sunset Saturday, the event will feature brunch, a lounge bar, a tented main area and DJ sets from music producers Mysto & Pizzi, David Berrie and The Chainsmokers, plus a performance by singer Jonny Rose. Pricey table reservations are required (lounge is $200, tent is $300).
3 Southampton Hospital’s Annual Memorial Day Weekend “Party in Pink” ball takes place Sunday at the Westhampton Country Club (35 Potunk Lane, Westhampton Beach, 631-288-1148). The goal is to raise money for the hospital’s Westhampton Primary Care Center. $100 will allow for 9:30 p.m. admission, plus dancing, drinks and a dessert (without seating).
4 The nonprofit Amaryllis Farm (93 Merchants Path, Bridgehampton, 631-537-7335, amaryllisfarm.com) is Long Island’s only reserve for elderly, disabled and special needs horses. On Sundays, the public is welcome to visit the farm’s educational barn from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Pony rides are usually available. Admission is $5.
