Mike Bloomberg



WELCOME HOME --- I'll say one thing, I never had a vacation end so abruptly or quickly as my 13-day adventure out of NYC. Let's just say it was a break-neck race back to New York Saturday morning on the red eye from L. A. There was absolutely no waiting for a cab when we hit JFK; and, an eerie silence that immediately announced something was about to happen. From there it was straight home while listening to the dire warnings from Mayor Bloomberg on down (isn't it interesting that most ALL of the politico-talking heads come out when a situation like this develops; to whit: they ALL want to look their best). Being the Mayor of any urban town, cannot be easy. Damned if you do; damned if you don't. Turns out, the whole shebang was somewhat over hyped, but watching some of the footage now of Downtown Manhattan is downright scary. Me, these days, I prefer to be a bit over cautious. With the tenth anniversary of 9/11 coming up ... one can&…

39 Rock's Jane Krakowski to Heat Up Westhampton

Jane Krakowski



Tony award winning actress and Emmy nominated star of NBC's "30 Rock" Jane Krakowski will perform a sizzling night of cabaret at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Saturday, September 3 at 8:30pm.

This smart, sexy, and sultry blonde is an accomplished singer and dancer with numerous credits to her name in theatre. She won a Tony Award for her show-stopping performance as Carla in the 2003 revival of Nine and has headlined productions of Guys and Dolls, Grand Hotel, Company and Damn Yankees. Her sold-out cabaret stint at Feinstein’s last year featured songs, both famous and obscure, that were once staples for the likes of Eartha Kitt, Mae West and Ethel Waters. The New York Times said, “What she brings to numbers that these and other forerunners have mined for every imaginable shade of lubricity and seduction is an intractable innocence. In…

The Southampton Inn Playroom



Predictions of Hurricane Irene caused panic on the south fork in Long Island. As the forecasts worsened, many local Southampton establishments began prepping for this possible disastrous storm, especially the Southampton Inn. The owner of Southampton Inn knew it was important to begin stocking up on the most important staples and resources before the storm rolled in early Sunday morning. As of Friday afternoon, the Inn was fully supplied with essentials including water, beer, wine, sandwiches, candles and flashlights. The Inn received a high volume of calls from guests who wished to postpone their stay providing a lodging opportunity for many locals who were evacuated from their oceanfront communities and estates. The staff hosted more than 200 guests throughout the weekend and was fully prepared to face the storm. The Inn lies on one of the highest points of Southampton Village, whic…

SEPTEMBER AT DUNE POINT FIRE ISLAND

Petra Brehl Welcomes You To Dune Point



We are planning our September vacation to Cherry Grove Fire Island for Cherry's On The Bay's annual Christmas party on the 17th.

We just love our off season vacations at our favorite place in the world, Dune Point. During the month of September, Cherry Grove has their Christmas and Halloween parties and they are so magical. The weather is always beautiful and even if it rains, magic is still in the air.

We do go out to Cherry Grove during the summer, but September is the month we love the most, because most of the world is back into their 9 to 5 grind and working, and we are ready to relax. On the rare occasion when we are up early in Times Square, we watch thousands of people running to their office to start their day. It is a sick sight to see.

We just can not understand how people live their life this way. Everyday the same thing. They get on a train from Long Island or other locations, they travel 2 hours to ge…
