Ok, this is by no means an exhaustive list. The Bee is just one tiny flying insect — there is only so much we can buzz about. That said, if you’re in the Hamptons this weekend, here are some activities to check out. Our criteria: Events must support local businesses, plus we’d actually have to be interested in attending them. (That narrowed the list down.) We’ll be adding to the calendar as we hear about more.
