Surf Lodge gears up to fire people as Hamptons summer begins
After a pandemic downturn, the Hamptons are heating up again for this summer – with sold-out hotels, crowded rentals, endless helicopters, and sky-high prices on just about everything.
Hotspot Surf Lodge in Montauk is so concerned about the crowds they ask people to stay away.
We hear that the popular venue is stepping up its security presence for a busy weekend. And while New York State relaxes COVID-19 regulations, ownership is not.
Guests can make reservations at the restaurant, but must remain at their table as there is no standing room at the bar.
Anyone who shows up at the property without a reservation can expect to be fired by one of the 12 security guards Jayma Cardoso has hired, we’re told.
There are also many other options. At the former Sloppy Tuna spot, Bounce is opening a chic beach bar. The franchise’s first black “Bachelor” star Matt James and fellow Bachelor Nation star Tyler Cameron will host the kickoff.
Monatuk Beach House – which offers free BMW rides to hotel guests throughout the summer – will host DJs and live music by the pool.
In Southampton, author Leesa Rowland will sign copies of her new book, “The charisma factor”, at the T Bar while guests are served cocktails and appetizers.
Also in Southampton, the Animal Shelter Foundation will be hosting a private party for Honorary Board Member and Society Member Jean Shafiroff.
In the meantime, a 5,000 square foot luxury market called One will open in East Hampton with a tasting by Wöllfer Estate Vineyards.
And for those who need to sweat all the alcohol, Gurney’s Montauk will offer Pulsed By Julie D and EmBody classes, while Gurney’s Star Island will have a class called Flexit.
Hamptons staple Tracey Anderson is once again open at Water Mill and will later open a Body Lab in East Hampton that will showcase her latest creation: the $ 100,000 “Anderson Moto Air Pro Reformer” training machine.
Water Mill will also be the site of the first live Hamptons Classic horse show since the start of the pandemic.
