Maison Close Montauk on East Lake Drive, which had a grand-opening celebration planned this weekend, was completely ravaged by flames.
Summer benefit parties are back with a vengeance, enlivening weekends from early June through late August, with big tickets like Bay Street, the Parrish Art Museum, LongHouse Reserve, the Watermill Center, Guild Hall, and Stony Brook Southampton Hospital only the tip of the fund-raising iceberg.
Bay Street Theater’s summer season will open with “Double Helix,” a musical about the race to discover the structure of DNA, and Rosalind Franklin, the scientist whose important contribution has been overlooked by history.
A new show in the gallery and guest level at LongHouse Reserve will pair ceramics, wall pieces, and other objects inspired by Jack Lenor Larsen’s house with pieces from Larsen’s own collection.
Documentary on Depeche Mode by D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus, and Blake Edwards’s comedy “A Shot in the Dark” will screen in Sag Harbor along with a program of shorts by local filmmakers.
Mary Schoenlein of the late, lamented Mary’s Marvelous is back in the kitchen—her own kitchen—creating and testing recipes, some new, some tried and true, for a new cookbook.
Self-serve frozen yogurt, milkshakes, nitro cold brew coffee, home-made doughnut holes, cookies, and candy can all be found at the Sweet Spot, a new shop on East Hampton’s Newtown Lane.
A new nut-ritious and local snack for sale, Rita Cantina's new dishes and brunch, two new Montauk eateries, a Wolffer reboot, Meatless Mondays are back, and more.
