Alas, the weekend is over. But we’ve got good news: So’s January! Happy Monday and Happy February, everyone.

Our cat is taking a contrarian view, predicting stubborn cold for the early part of the month, with President’s Day flurries.
On disco lights your name will be seen
If you’re feeling full of frolics and fiddle-de-dees, then consider attending Ladies Night on Tuesday at the Maidstone Inn in East Hampton, pictured above. Special guests include fitness entrepreneur Tracy Anderson (who last season opened the arm-sculpting studio on Park Place with business partner Gwyneth Paltrow) and nutritionist Stefanie Sacks, author of “What The Fork Are You Eating.” The fun starts at 6 p.m. and we can only hope the cocktails will be gluten-free. Details here. Swedish hotelier Jenny Ljungberg bought the inn, which has foundations dating back to the 1700s, in 2008.

Speaking of female entrepreneurs, Montauk’s Ariana Jasuta of Kaileigh Swimwear is readying her 2016 bikini collection, according to this East Hampton Press article. Her line includes cheeky bottoms (we’re not kidding) named after locales like Amagansett and Indian Wells.“My inspiration really comes from Montauk and the beach culture we have out there,” she says. Jasuta is the daughter of a commerical fisherman, who spent her summers at Ditch Plains. She sells her bikinis at local surf shops (plus a few in Florida and California) and on the intriguingly named website, BikiniSlayer.com.
Harbor Grill of East Hampton and Cowfish of Hampton Bays both had spicy entries in the Great Bonac Chili Cook-off over the weekend. The verdict? Delicious.

Unclear why Newsday’s story on the 4,500-square-foot facility (which is attached to an oncology office) includes a “Celebrity Pot Smokers” slideshow with Snoop Dogg. Lastly, Muse in the Harbor, the Sag Harbor restaurant, is closed for renovations. It plans to re-open for dinner Feb. 11.
