Hope everyone survived tax day!

I’ll keep it short and sweet since it’s been a super busy week for this Hamptons Party Girl, and it’s going to get even crazier in the weeks to come. I’m sure ready to blow off some steam. You with me? Here are a few fun things to do.

* I know this is already at capacity for this week but I wanted to note that the “Tom Twomey Series: Conversations With” series launch event will be held on Saturday, April 18, at the East Hampton Library. The inaugural gathering, hosted by Ann Chapman, will feature a dedication of the Library Gallery in memory of the wonderful Tom Twomey and the legion of local books he bequeathed to the library. Next up in the 12-part series will be Meeting Climate Change Challenges with Linda James on Saturday, April 25, at 4 p.m. www.tomtwomeyseries.org

* The Hampton Ballet Theatre School will stage “Les Sylphides” and the “Littlest Mermaid” on Friday, April 17, at 7 p.m.; on Saturday, April 18, at 1 and 7 p.m.; and on Sunday, April 19, at 2 p.m. at Guild Hall. These performances are always adorable. Check them out, and get your tickets at www.hamptonballettheatreschool.com

* Black & Sparrow and Hopefully Forgiven join forces for a rockin’ concert at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Saturday, April 18, at 8 p.m. www.baystreet.org

* The popular Rising Stars Piano Series kicks off on Saturday, April 18, at the Southampton Cultural Center with a performance by Tomer Gewirtzman at 7 p.m. Additional concerts will follow on May 16 and May 23. www.scc-arts.org

* There will be a special screening of Albert Maysles “Iris” at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Sunday, April 19, at 2:30 p.m. The memorial tribute and screening is part of the Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival. www.baystreet.org

* Coming up, on Tuesday, April 21, Guild Hall will host “An Evening of Rhythm” with Anita Boyer and her students at 7:30 p.m. The performance will chronicle tap from its earliest forms and show how it has grown into the multi-faceted dance form that it is today using only performance pieces choreographed and taught by Boyer. www.guildhall.org

Happy weekend!
