Happy weekend! Did someone say glass of Champagne? Pierre’s restaurant in Bridgehampton, pictured above, is hosting an opening this evening at 8 p.m. for its “Upstairs” private-event space (located, as the name would imply, upstairs from its first-floor eatery). Laurent-Perrier is providing the bubbles. In other Pierre’s developments, its new Sagg Main market (the former Sagg General Store in Sagaponack) could be open as soon as Monday, if building permits allow. We expect lots of high-quality take-out foods, like beach-ready Croque Monsieurs…

The new Japanese restaurant Kozu, owned by 75 Main’s Zach Erdem, is scheduled to open the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, in Southampton. Here’s a photo of its outdoor tables. After dinner, Kozu will turn into the nightclub Beach House. And then, if you’re unable to stumble home, you can conveniently stay at the new Hotel Ze, which will have nine rooms.
Farewell, Red Stixs of Water Mill. Hello, The Greenwich. The new eatery will open the Thursday of Memorial Day weekend, serving “local food in a simple manner.” We sense one will pay upward for all the simplicity, but who knows. The principals include Nick Boccio and Chef Carmine Di Giovanni (the duo behind the Project Group restaurants in the city), and former Red Stixs partners David Schulman and Sean Kehlenbeck. We hear there will be watermelon salad.
Oakland’s in Hampton Bays, currently open on weekends only, will be open every day of the week (for lunch and dinner) as of Friday, May 20. “Dining on the deck is right around the corner,” the restaurant says on Facebook. Now if only the business, family-owned for 25 years, could figure out how to get rid of all the flooding on Dune Road…
On tap for the weekend
White’s Apothecary in Southampton is offering “luxe” facials this Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., from representatives of Clé de Peau Beauté. You also get a pretty big discount (not really) if you can pronounce Clé de Peau Beauté. But try it out, why not.
The Hotel Indigo East End, which is actually in Riverhead, which is not the Hamptons (sorry), is hosting the East End Craft Beer Festival tonight (rain or shine), from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Every local beer company you’ve ever heard of, and some wineries, will be there. Also, Backyard Brine Pickle Co. with these delicious looking pickles.
Springs School is hosting its Festival of the Arts at Ashawagh Hall, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with lots of cool local artists like Trish Franey and Kate Mueth and workshops for kids. AND there will be a mini-mystery art sale, which we really dig. Basically, you take home either a Cindy Sherman or a 4th grader’s handiwork. Details here.

“Spring Barley is up! Now we just have to: keep deer away, harvest, malt, brew and DRINK!” Amber Waves farms in Amagansett, posting this photo of what apparently ultimately becomes Montauk Brewing Co. beer.
