Happy Friday! We apologize that it’s been a while since a proper Bee dispatch — we’ve been busy being held up at gunpoint, while taking a late-night taxi in Brazil. Or something like that. But thankfully it’s the weekend ahead. Phew.
Heads will roll, dammit
Speaking of the weekend, here’s good news for art lovers: There are a few openings this weekend, so prepare to get your wine and cheese on. Over at Tripoli Gallery in Southampton, there’s a reception Saturday at 6 p.m. for the Susan Tepper show (that’s her work, above). Tepper, who died in 1991, co-founded the East Hampton Center for Contemporary Art on Newton Lane, where she showcased emerging artists. This particular exhibit of Tepper’s work features 22 abstracted faces, which she called “Heads.” Pleasantly creepy. Details here.
Meanwhile — how’s this for a coincidence — Romany Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor will also debut abstract faces, these ones painted by Christopher Engel, a Sag Harbor artist. Opening reception is Saturday at 4 p.m.; details here.
And how much for the tiki torch?
Ruschmeyer’s, the “camp chic” resort in Montauk, will host a popup this Satuday called RuschMRKT (because hipsters hate vowels, obvs). Beachy vendors include Faherty Brand, which makes things like sustainable swimsuits, and Poolside, which makes borderline inappropriate straw totes (like this one, which would likely get you kicked out of the Maidstone Club – please buy it). If the merchandise fails to attract, take note: There will also be half-price rosé.
On tap for the weekend..

“Be a bad ass with a good ass.” — Yoga Lila of Montauk, posting its schedule on Facebook. We’re not even sure what it means, but are now thinking about a yoga class.
