This is the time of year that is always bittersweet. Too darn tired after running around all season long, we find ourselves looking forward to Tumbleweed Tuesday with wild abandon. But there’s still so much more wonderful stuff to savor. So soldier on we must, as we drink up these last few days of glorious summer in the Hamptons.
Here are a few things that you absolutely shouldn’t miss tonight, Friday, August 26.
“Andromeda,” as reimagined by Kath Mueth and the Neo-Political Cowgirls, stages under the stars at Montauk State Park through Sunday, August 28, starting at 7:30 p.m. each night. Seating is on the ground, so bring a blanket, lawn chairs and a picnic. Tickets are $20. Read all about the show in this feature I wrote for the Sag Harbor Express.
The dual exhibits of “Fifty Small Things” and “Take a Closer Look” will open at the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum with a reception on Friday, August 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibitions will remain on view through October 31. Read more about this one here in the Sag Harbor Express.
Guild Hall in East Hampton is bringing “Celebrity Autobiography” back to its stage tonight, with back-to-back shows at 7 and 9:30 p.m. Always a blast, this special Hamptons Edition with Never-Before-Seen Memoirs will star Christie Brinkley, Dick Cavett, Tovah Feldshuh, Colin Jost, Richard Kind, Susan Lucci, Eugene Pack, Dayle Reyfel, Brooke Shields, Alan Zweibel and more.
And check out the new scene and live music at Zigmunds Bar (203 Sag Harbor Turnpike, Bridgehampton, NY 11932) tonight as the Dan Bailey Tribe plays from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. The music returns on Sunday, August 28, for Reggae Night, featuring Winston Irie, who will play beginning at 8:30 p.m.
