It is Here* Warm Weather** What is Happening in the Hamptons*May 2012

Greetings, Hamptons Mouthpiece Readers.….I am back with posting Hamptons Events for the month…The winter has been an extremely warm winter with no shortage of events. It has been a wonderful and exciting time in the Hamptons this winter. May is coming in with a splash of amazingly warm, beautiful weather and I am so excited. I love the Hamptons in the Spring because it is before the rush of tourism season and traffic jams it is a time to really take in the beauty of the area. This month there are many exciting events but as always there are too many to list and therefore I only list the one’s that catch my eye that I might attend. There are several website calendars that I pull events from, my objective is to simplify it you. So without further adieu; I bring to you Hamptons MouthPiece event picks for the month of May 2012.
