Saturday: Record Store Day, Sportsmen's Expo, Pints and Pups

Now that it's finally starting to feel like spring, there's plenty to do this weekend. 

Saturday is Record Store Day, and Innersleeve Records on Main Street in Amagansett will celebrate with its biggest celebration of the annual event to date. Along with numerous exclusive releases offered only on Record Store Day and only at independent record stores, Innersleeve’s intimate stage will feature musicians and D.J.s from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ransom Pier will take the stage from 11 to noon, followed by D.J. Wake n Bake from 12:30-1:30, D.J. Mister Lama from 1:30 to 2:30, and Student Body from 3 to 4.

Innersleeve, which also sells musical instruments and accessories, as well as stereo and home theater equipment, will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday.

Also on Saturday, the East Hampton Sportsmen’s Alliance will hold its seventh annual Sportsmen’s Expo from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the grounds of the Amagansett Firehouse. Admission is free, and the expo will be held rain or shine. Food and beverages will be available. The event will offer exhibitions on fishing, boating, sport shooting, hunting, antique hand-carved decoys, carved shorebirds, a wild turkey caller and guide, dock-to-dish fish preparation and cooking, kayaks, a live marine touch tank, handcrafted muzzle loaders, a fishermen’s flea market, and a master gunsmith. A raffle will offer three prizes: a Stoeger 3500 12-gauge semiautomatic shotgun, a half-day local charter or guided waterfowl hunt, and a rod-and-reel setup.

The East Hampton Lions Club will host Pints and Pups, a fund-raising event to support the Guide Dog Foundation and the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in Amagansett. The afternoon will include live music, face painting, food and ice cream trucks, and a cash bar. Owners of socialized, friendly, and leashed dogs have been encouraged to register their pets in advance to compete in one of six categories: most unique breed, most unique feature, floppiest ears, best trick, best dressed, and dog-owner look-alike.

First, second, and third-place prizes will be awarded in each category, as well as best in show. The competition is open to those 21 and over or accompanied by a legal guardian. Providing a guide dog to an individual in need costs $5,000 per year. The $30 registration fee per dog will help the Lions Club meet its goal.
