Happy Friday! And just like that, summer is officially over. Yesterday marked the Autumn equinox, which means the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting longer and the art (see above) is getting weirder. Just kidding, Orlou-Arts! (Orlou-Arts is the East Hampton studio that created “Green Circle,” shown above…) “Green Circle” — along with the work of “seven of the area’s most interesting artists” — will be on display this weekend at Ashawagh Hall in Springs, at an exhibit appropriately titled “Equinox.”  Details here.  As always, we hope the opening reception (Saturday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.) features wine and cheese.

Now if you like to touch weird art…

Then here’s good news: the Montauk Historical Society will host its first ever Fall Fest Craft Fair on the grounds of of the Second House Museum (the oldest structure in Montauk) on Saturday and Sunday. We hear there will be a yarn spinning demonstration, which is totally bananas. Also, there will be nautical theme gifts, seashell and beach-glass art. But they had us at yarn spinning.

Did someone say discount?

September is the best month in the Hamptons for many reasons…the crowd clears, the beaches empty, and the sun sets each night in near pornographic splendor. But also, local businesses start discounting things. To wit:

  • Flying Point Surf & Sport, which has locations in numerous Hampton towns, is celebrating its 20th anniversary (well done, Mark and Shannon Zucchero!) by offering 10% off online sales through Oct. 31…
  • Mandala Yoga Center in Amangansett Square is tempting yogis with a $50 card for 5 classes…
  • East Hampton Point in Springs is offering 30% off its cottages and suites (we’d seriously considering this offer, even though we live in Springs) as a special autumn getaway deal…

Quick takes…

  • The Montauk Chamber of Commerce is seeking volunteers for its 35th Annual Fall Family Festival, held Oct. 8 and 9. The event involves a Chowder Tasting Contest, which is more delicious than yarn spinning…
  • Almond restaurant in Bridgehampton will kick off its first “Artists & Writers Night” night of the season Oct. 4 with writer Iris Smyles, who may potentially wear a sequin gown
  • Zum Schneider Montauk is pleased to announce that Jessica Lynn, a country singer who wears denim cut-offs, will be on stage this weekend. “We are expecting a stunning performance you shouldn’t miss!!!” the bar exclaims. Indeed….

Social Media Quote of the Day

“The bigger the hair, the smaller the hips.” — Christie Brinkley, Hamptons dweller, reminding us all via Instagram why we miss the ’80s.
