HAMPTONS MOUTHPIECE “We do the talking for you” There are so many events this July it is overwhelming…..Last night I attended the midnight show of Harry Potter with my hubby and youngest daughter…the oldest one was with her friends in Southampton, we went to the East Hampton theater…we waited on line for over an hour to get into the theater and we had tickets…I was worried that I would be unable to stay awake since I fall asleep when I attend a 7pm show, but to my surprise I only drifted once and no embarrassing snoring….The movie was excellent…I am a Harry Potter fan, I have seen everyone for the last 10 years and YES we have the entire collection on DVD….It is a must see if you are a Harry Potter Fan…you will not be disappointed….
July is my birthday month and the plan so far is to celebrate on Friday 7/29…Place TBD….Now on to what is going on this weekend…Well I literally have been sent well over 50 events taking place this July, but I am going to try to narrow down the events to the ones that I think are fun, exciting and not crazy expensive…There are a couple that are out of my price range but they have made the list because if you have the funds they are well worth attending…
