Well hello, blue skies! And Happy Birthday, ‘Murica. If you happen to be taking a jaunt to the Hamptons, perhaps for the full week ahead, here’s a short list of what’s going on. Our criteria: Events must support local businesses or entrepreneurs, plus we’d actually have to be interested in attending them. (This explains why there is a shameful number of events involving booze.) We’ll be adding to the calendar as we hear about more.
