Hamptons, News Around Town…The Million Dollar Question
April 11th 2015
So many people have asked me what is the deal with Doppio in Sag Harbor, are they reopening….That is the MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION! WHAT IS THE DEAL WITH DOPPIO…Nothing, zip..has been taking place in that location……I say BRING BACK MADISON & MAIN! I had the most fun in 2013…Last year 2014 Back Page & Back Harlow were fun, but not as much fun as Madison & Main…The Watermelon Martini’s were the absolute BEST…the bartenders were fun! Sasha my favorite(bartender) worked at Doppio but not even he could save it. I do think Back Harlow will be a place I might choose to hang out at, but only if the drinks are affordable. I like the management team and I am told they will be doing some really fun things this summer.
It is confirmed Plaza Sports is opening in Sag Harbor on Main Street, I spoke with the owner and he stated that he plans on being open year-round. He plans on focusing on the summer then re-assessing for the fall and winter. He stated he would be selling Sag Harbor t-shirts, hmmmm is he not aware that there are 2 other businesses in Sag Harbor selling the same thing. Plaza Sports has locations in Rocky Point and Montauk, hopefully if the item is not carried in the Sag Harbor location, they can have it sent from another location. They should be open before May.
Harbor Market update….things are moving along well and progressively and they should be open in a couple of weeks….I do hope before May, looking forward to that brick oven pizza.
POTHOLES: Looks like Many of the towns are just putting a band-aid on the situation and filling in the holes…but East Hampton is still the worst, so be careful driving at night because there are some serious potholes that could just do damage to your car.
Rumor has it that WHITES APOTHECARY is opening a second location in Southampton, hmmm will it just be the cosmetic part of the business or will this be competition for Southrifty Drug Southampton?
Saaz Indian Cuisine in Southampton delivers…for $10 you can have Indian Food delivered to you…$20 for East Hampton Residents and unfortunately East Hampton they are only making 2 delivery runs per day. M-Sun 7pm and 930pm…If business starts to generate and they are getting more deliveries, then the cost of the delivery might decrease. Sorry Montauk no plans to deliver, too far. I love this place M-Sun “All you can Eat” buffet is fantastic and different items everyday.
Happy Hour 1/2 price drinks Sun-Thursday 4-6pm…. Did someone say GIRLS NIGHT OUT! OH YEAH…..
EAST HAMPTON: East Hampton Town officials are abandoning plans to impose a summer weekend ban on all helicopters this summer in the Hamptons, a very busy tourism season, citing concerns about aircraft being diverted to neighboring towns. Hmmm…Is that the real reason……Well at least they have enforced some curfews during the week. I am sure the organizers for the numerous celebrity-filled events this summer in the Hamptons are grateful…I wonder were they scratching their heads trying to figure out how they were getting their A-listers to their events this summer……I guess the thought of being stuck in traffic for hours was not a draw.
A new restaurant opening in Montauk …Harbor in Montauk….owners James “Jamo” Willis and business partner Robert Hirsh. 3,200 square-foot revamped eatery on West Lake Drive will have that familiar Hamptons feel — a laid-back beach-bar vibe during the day that gives way to dancing at night. I am sure the residents in Montauk are very excited about this opening…. maybe…some skinny dipping…LOL…just kidding
Rumor has it that Gurney’s Montauk Resort & Spa is making some changes and going very high end….Targeting a high-end demographic….they have dropped their timeshare model. Will the middle-class be able to afford a Day at Gurney’s? Is Gurney’s seeking to make the list Earth’s Most Exclusive Retreats…among these favorites: http://robbreport.com/luxury-travel/the-robb-report-100-resorts
