When we heard the news this weekend that Ben Pundole, who is behind Montauk's Ruschmeyer's, resigned last week from his position with the boutique hotel brand King & Grove, we were unclear if it meant that he would be leaving his "baby" Ruschmeyer's as well, and wanted to get to the bottom of the rumor. Turns out, he is def out, of King & Grove, and Ruschmeyer's too. Our sources confirmed yesterday that Ben is out for good at Ruschmeyer's, though his (old) business partner Rob McKinley will be staying on the project (we're unclear as to what capacity - creative director?). McKinley you may remember as the talent behind the Surf Lodge. More»
Hoping to start the summer off in the safest way possible, 17 new patrol cars will be stationed throughout the Hamptons in order to crack down on drunk driving, reports Patch. The new initiative, called East End DWI Task Force, goes into effect tomorrow evening, and the cars will come from a number of different police agencies in the area, as well as from the NY state police department.

Labor Day wasn't the only excuse to wear white this weekend. Glee's Cheyenne Jackson and beau Monte Lapka celebrated their much anticipated matrimony ceremony Saturday night in the Hamptons. Jackson tweeted shortly after "Married the best man I've ever known," next to this romantic beach shot. More»
[Photo via] Well (thankfully) this party escaped our Calendar radar. But that doesn't mean we will forget about a recap post! Apparently some serious and mischievous partying went down in North Sea last Friday night. When the 47-year old Manhattan man came back to his home on Bridies Path after leaving Aug. 21, he was surprised to find used condoms and $170 worth of wine, champagne and food missing from his fridge, according to Patch. I'm imagining something like Jake Ryan's party in Sixteen Candles. More»
[Photo via] Say good bye to the 20 pound backpacks of big textbooks this school year, kids. Sixth grade just got a hell of a lot cooler as the Southampton School District is trying to replace as many dusty big books with snazzy iPads. The teachers are testing out a trial run with the iPad 2 and the sixth grade curriculum. The grade's core classes will have 110 iPads available and the high school will receive 60 new Lenovo ThinkPad T420 laptops. More»
Go HERE for more photos of Hurricane Irene in the Hamptons!
What a hurricane! It's the day after the most wild night to hit the stretch of 27 East, and after spending a solid amount of hours with lack of electricity, internet or television, all I can think about right now is getting a good meal and surfing the web. But, somewhat like a horrible hurricane hangover, all there is is long lines, horrendous traffic, loud noises and still many places are without power. More»
Hamptons Hurricane. Many locals might not get as excited with that alliteration, especially as Irene is brewing down south, but the best advice for this current situation is not to freak out. Let's travel back in time and take a look at what our Hamptons homes have survived through, and what we can maybe expect.
[Photo via] Hamptonites are scared out of their Sperry's about Hurricane Irene coming to town! Turns out the storm may be boosted up to a Category 4, and it has been announced the Hamptons will be getting hit HARD. People are more nervous about this than their in-laws coming to town, in fact the LIRR is shutting down some of their lines headed to the Hamptons, and some of the best events are being canceled. ArtWalk, a benefit for the Coalition for the Homeless, was first moved indoors, then two hours later canceled completely! See what else has been canceled, and what events are still on (for now).

We all know the people roaming around Montauk these days. It is safe to say that this summer the town of Montauk has had the most traffic it has ever seen. While bars, restaurants and stores are popping up left and right one man is looking to keep the history alive.
Lawrence Cooke is looking to raise the $500,00 needed to expand a small cottage on the back of a piece of property that is currently owned by the Monatuk Historical Society into the location for The Montauk Indian Museum. [Photo via] More»
How does the saying go? It is not a party until there is a fight? Did I just make that up? Anyway, you know what I am trying to say, once the hands start flying, you know you have thrown a rager. However, when the hands flying are your mother's, and they are at your face, you know shit just hit the fan. [Photo via] More»
