Sunset In Fire Island

Fall is the most beautiful time in Cherry Grove Fire Island. This is the time of the year where most of the tourists are gone and the clubs are packed with locals.

This weekend we have the Christmas Party at Cherry's On The Bay and every weekend in the fall has the coolest special events. And the premiere place to stay is Dune Point Fire Island, where Times Square Gossip readers get a 15% discount off their stay in the Fall. Just type in the Code "TIMESSQUARE" and the savings are yours. This offer is good for Fall 2013. Or just call the hotel and tell Petra and Rick you want your Times Square Gossip discount. Their number is 631-597-6261. Visit Dune Point HERE.

I love the fall because everything slows down, the fast pace of the island turns into a relaxing slow pace vacation. Walks to other towns on Fire Island are breathless, and nature takes over. 

I was talking to other business owners on the island today. They were all telling me that everyone wants the sun and that they dread a rainstorm forecast, that's when all the cancellations start to flow in with everyone's excuse always the same just about. They kill off relatives, someone had a heart attack, anything to get out of their reservations at all the hotels. This I do not understand. 

Fire Island has it's own weather patterns. No matter what the forecast is in New York City, the weather is different on the island. It could be raining in the city and sunny on the island. And besides, a good storm on the island is magical. Nothing beats sitting in your room at Dune Point, looking out the window and watching the thunder and lightning, while you cook a great dinner. Even better is sitting in Cherry's, drinking one of Johny Pool's famous drinks and dancing to the tunes of famed DJ Susan Levine as the rain pours down. It is magical and so cozy.

Cherry's On The Bay also has their annual Halloween party coming up on September 28th. This is one event not to be missed. People from all over the world come for this to dress up and show how crazy they can get. 

So forget about the weather reports and pack your bag for Cherry Grove Fire Island. You will love it!
