Happy Friday! We bring you tidings of great joy: It’s National Ugly Sweater Day. If you’ve got one hanging in your closet (and we know you do), then might we suggest heading to Indian Wells Tavern in Amagansett for the watering hole’s Annual Ugly Sweater party, tonight at 10 p.m. Details here. And keep that bad boy handy: You can wear it again to Stephen Talkhouse’s Ugly Christmas Sweater Party on Saturday, at which the hip-hop band Hello Brooklyn is playing. Don’t have the courage to wear your ugly sweater in public? We suggest egg nog. Recipe here.
“Yes, its a bit nipply out, I mean nippy out.”
We don’t know what to say, but it’s Christmas and we’re all in misery. Then what better a time to celebrate the most dysfunctional of families and watch the 1989 holiday classic, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Attend a screening tonight at 7 p.m. at the Southampton Arts Center on Jobs Lane. Details here. Because you needed another reason to wear your ugly sweater.
Seeking 1-BR With Sweeping Views
Randy Lerner, the billionaire who owns Amagansett Square and Meeting House restaurant (not to mention the Cleveland Browns), is selling his one-bedroom — you read that correctly — beach house for a cool $6 million, according to our friends at Curbed Hamptons. Just one bedroom? He apparently does not like house guests. Although knowing the Hamptons, this probably IS his guest house.
On tap for the weekend…
- Did someone say Aperol? Baron’s Cove restaurant in Sag Harbor is serving up fireside holiday cocktails over the weekend, including the Jingle Bell Rock cocktail. Recipe here if you can’t make it there.
- We’ll take one in felted wool, please. Ashawagh Hall in Springs is hosting the Hand Artisan Holiday Gift Show on Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Last chance to buy something cool for your Secret Santa.
- The winter solstice is apparently special. The South Fork Natural History Museum is hosting an event celebrating “The Shortest Day” this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. Details here. This is for children ages 6-9, by the way, not (unfortunately) adults with seasonal affective disorder.
Social Media Quote of the Day
“Stop waiting for Monday, January first or anything else. Start now.” — Kiley DeMarco, founder of wellness site One Healthy Hamptons, in this Instagram post. Inspired by this, we will immediately start drinking egg nog.
