You Should Know: Mike Kilcullen

by Christie Grimm · August 29, 2016

Mike Kilcullen. That guy you've no doubt seen out and about, running deep with the rest of his Whalebone crew, just fucking shit up. We kid. Kind of. For those not adventurous to literally follow him in real life, you should at least follow him on Instagram. #35mm photos and funny captions abound.

Name: Mike Kilcullen
Occupation: Digital Editor + Chief Karaoke Officer at Whalebone Magazine
Place of Birth: Atlantic Beach, FL
Instagram / Twitter: @harvard_dad
Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius

What do you actually do? Create enjoyably-informative, digestible content for those that live on and enjoy the East End.

My motto is: Anything Gucci Mane has said since he got out of jail this year.

5 Favorite Hamptons Places: Ditch Witch, Amsterdam Beach, the Dock, Liar's, and anywhere playing 90's hip-hop on the weekend.

The craziest thing I've done out East is... Not to be publicly discussed until 2024, per court of law. Semi-kidding. Anything in Shagwong on a weekday after 11PM.

Best kept Hamptons secret? Is still the Hamptons best kept secret. But you can start by having a beer at Montauket around any given sunset.

If you had one day left out East, what would you do? Probably not the answer you want, but I'd opt for no plan. That kind of approach has - without doubt - brought me my most memorable days out here. Just be somewhere with a view and people you like.

Who should we know? Tough one. The Duryea family. Grant and team at Ditch Witch, Vaughan at Brew Co, the Weimar's, George at the Dock... actually, anyone from Grant Monahan's Beginning of the End series. The list of cool people out here is endless, but those are the genuine folks that I've personally come to admire and respect - they're literally serving + holding down the community, and have been since long before it was considered a popular thing to do. They also have the best stories, in my youthful opinion.
