Spend a Summer day in the Hamptons on a small budget
Spending a day in the Hamptons, does not have to cost you a fortune as the some might like you to believe. It is actually affordable and only a 2 hour trip from NYC, New Jersey,Connecticut or Westchester, only 1 hour from Western Long Island.

I am bias towards Sag Harbor, it really is one of my favorite places in the Hamptons, but I also like shelter Island and Montauk. Each Town has its own uniqueness and you can find things to do in each town.
If you want to spend the day at the beach but you want to save from paying the cost to park, you might want to consider finding long term parking in either East Hampton or Southampton and taking the FREE RIDE to the beach.or you could rent a bike from Amagansett Beach & Bicycle located in Amagansett. They also offer kayaking tours, and bike tours, a great way to see the Hamptons.

Hamptons Happenings Southampton Hospital Celebrates the Opening of The Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart and Stroke Center

Southampton Hospital will host a ribbon cutting ceremony on May 15th to celebrate the opening of the Audrey and Martin Gruss Heart & Stroke Center and to honor the Gruss’ gift of $5 million to the new facility at the Hospital.

The state-of-the-art center consolidates a broad spectrum of sophisticated diagnostic and treatment capabilities with existing cardiovascular programs and services. An advanced endovascular surgical suite features the latest imaging technology ideally suited for endovascular surgery, and many of these procedures and repairs can now be done through minimally invasive techniques.

Audrey Gruss, President of the Audrey & Martin Gruss Foundation, said, “Martin and I felt it was important that our local hospital have the capability to conduct stroke and vascular distress intervention. Southampton Hospital is essential to all of us living or vacationing in the East End and we are honored to be part of its quest for excellence.” slideshow_std_h_Southampton-Hospital-Breaks-Ground-for-New-Audrey-and-Martin-Gruss-Heart-and-Stroke-Center8

“It is well-known that the over-50 age group has the highest probability of experiencing a stroke or heart attack,” Audrey continues. “With many of us spending weekends or weeks year-round in Southampton and the East End, we are gratified by this addition, knowing that our family and friends will be able to get timely medical care right in Southampton, if and when they need it. ”

Hospital President and CEO Robert S. Chaloner comments, “We are very grateful to Audrey and Martin Gruss. Getting treatment as quickly as possible is critical to recovery. Our ability to provide sophisticated diagnostics and interventional treatment of stroke and vascular disease will save lives.”

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.

11070790_866278796762042_4811013822328142179_nPOTHOLES: 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…..GNO

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

DSC_9339Rumor 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
