5 Services to Enlist When It’s Raining
Being stuck inside isn’t so bad
You’ve arrived out east only to be faced with less-than-stellar weather. The beach and barbecues are out. So what’s a gal to do? Here’s a look at how you can enjoy a rainy day at home. (Hint: Make everything come to you.)
Household Essentials: Postmates
Errands, schmerrands. You can have food, groceries, clothing and even prescriptions delivered within East Hampton and Montauk in under an hour--and even track the location of the delivery person for time estimates. Fees start at $5, and all payments, including tip, are made via the app.
DIY Meals: Kitchn Synch
If you?re in the mood to cook (it?s the perfect rainy day activity), get pre-measured ingredients to prepare a complete meal based on recipes created by a Danny Meyer-trained recipe consultant (think bibimbap bowls and sangria chicken with fruit glaze). There are packages for two and four adults ($14.95 per person) and a family of two adults and three to four children ($54.95).
Readymade Meals: The Green Lunch
If you’re not in the mood to cook but don’t want order takeout, choose meals, like grass-fed lamb meatballs and organic beets and pea shoots with tahini, from this service’s ever-changing menu. The minimum order is $58, and it delivers ($10) multiple times a week throughout the Hamptons (except Montauk--sorry).
