Well, hey now. What’s not to love about post-season? Pictured above is what the beach looks like these days…which is to say, empty. (We sense things will change come weekend as the hot sun — and perhaps a good chunk of Manhattan and Brooklyn — returns.) In fact, our man on the ground reported a groundswell of traffic yesterday in East Hampton…hence, we’ll now refer to the day after Tumbleweed Tuesday as #WelcomeWednesday. You heard it here first.
Did someone say awesome cause, dude?
Now here’s something to make us feel like we do absolutely nothing meaningful in life. The nonprofit A Walk on Water, which provides surf therapy to families of children with special needs, will host sessions on Saturday and Saturday at Ditch Plains in Montauk. A number of cool local surfers will be volunteering. Details here. Here’s to good waves, groms.
We’ll take the 100-mile option, please
It’s official: We really sit around and waste our life away. While we were busy writing this dispatch over a glass of wine, other people were carbo-loading for the Bike MS: East End Ride 2016, which takes place Saturday all over Long Island. Literally. Cyclists can choose from 25, 50 and 100 mile route options, all ending at the Southampton Elks Lodge. Noteworthy: A team from Buoy One Restaurant in Westhampton will be riding in honor of Chef David Girard, who is battling the disease. Make us proud, Buoy One.
Well, so much for shoulder season. East Hampton Point in Springs reports that its restaurant is now closed until spring (except for private events). The hotel and marina are still open…
In honor of back-to-school and new beginnings, Jack’s Stir Brew is sharing a 15%-off coupon and donating a portion of proceeds to the Green Schools Alliance for the month of September. “We know going back ain’t always easy, so….” the coffee shop says.
