28 Things to Eat, See and Do Before Summer Is Over
You don’t want to miss this stuff
You’ve hit up all the hot spots, shopped at all the new boutiques, relaxed on the best beaches, had some seriously awesome outdoor workouts and even uncovered some hidden gems…but there’s more. A lot more. Here are 28 more things to add to your list before the summer heat makes way for months of Netflix.
1. Pedal out of your comfort zone and rent a bike at Sag Harbor Cycle Company. Your SoulCycle class will understand, we promise.
3. Check out live music at East Hampton Point every weekend at the waterfront bar.
4. See Christie Brinkley and Brooke Shields read each other’s memoirs in Celebrity Autobiography at Guild Hall on August 26. Don’t skimp on the juicy stories, ladies.
5. Make a modern-art wish list at Gallery Valentine in East Hampton, which features a mix of both established and up-and-coming artists.
6. Pick raspberries and blackberries at Hank’s Pumpkintown. Get ’em while they’re ripe (which is, um, right this second.)
7. Sweat it out and then shop for a change of clothes at Physique 57’s Bridgehampton patio sale August 26 to 28. Lululemon, ALO Yoga, Heroine Sport and Michi? Yesss.
8. Romantic sunset dinner, anyone? It doesn’t get much more beautiful than the scene at Harvest on Fort Pond in Montauk.
9. Fuel up before one last rager at The Leo with the $70 prix fixe at the adjacent Café de la Musique. Eleven courses? We’re in.
10. Enjoy agave in a new way (i.e., not the kind recommended by your nutritionist) at Union Cantina. The signature drink is pulque, a milky cocktail made from fermented agave sap.
11. After taking full advantage of the Hamptons culinary scene, sign up for Tracy Anderson’s Vitality Week, August 25 to 28. It includes a daily two-hour workout and inspiring one-hour lecture.
12. OK, one more food goal: Indulge in Townline BBQ’s newly launched chocolate ice-cream tacos. You know you want to.
14. Take a break from surfing and try out flyboarding at Hampton Flyboard. Don’t forget the GoPro.
15. Plan an epic foodie dinner party with local items from Duryea’s new Gourmet Market. Payard macarons, Coperaco coffee and Backyard Brine pickles, anyone? (Well, maybe not all at once.)
16. Pick a Summer Friday and spend it sailing on Lake Montauk in a catamaran. (And taking a million Instagram shots.)
17. Make a pit stop at Milk Pail Fresh Market and grab fresh fruit veggies to make a smoothie. They have over 30 kinds of apples, NBD.
18. Take a surfing lesson at Montauk Boardrider Co. It’s not as tough as it looks, we promise.
19. Put on your cowboy hat and go horseback riding at Deep Hollow Ranch, the oldest working ranch in the whole United States.
20. Go golfing at Montauk Downs State Park, an 18-hole championship golf course. Best of all, you don’t need to be a club member to play.
21. Ready for a laid-back lunch? Lounge outside with crispy fish tacos and piña coladas from Tacombi in Montauk.
22. Then for dinner, head to Oreya in Southampton, where chef Greg Grossman is re-creating signature dishes from the Four Seasons Restaurant and serving them on replicas of the iconic eatery’s plates until the end of August.
23. Put on your best Hermès ensemble and see some horse jumping at the Hampton Classic.
24. Trade in your Skinnygirl margarita for an organic prosecco from Christie Brinkley’s new line, Bellissima. It includes a sugar-free option, too.
25. Check out the tranquil gardens and iconic works by Dale Chihuly at LongHouse Reserve.
26. Skip the jitney and fly to the Hamptons via Blade. In-flight snacks are from Dean & DeLuca, so that’s basically worth the price, right?
28. Broadway stars love to hang out in the Hamptons, too. Take a break from the beach and see pros Paul Alexander Nolan and Kelli Barrett in My Fair Lady at the Bay Street Theater through September 4.
