In 2008 Surf Lodge, a quaint restaurant with a surf theme opened on Fort Pond with hardly much of a bang. Sure they had a hip chef running the kitchen and a verified Manhattan nightlife crew running the party scene, but the hundreds of cars and frat boys would take a year or two to fully figure out what was brewing in Montauk. Since then, the movement of the hampters (hipsters from Manhattan) and the share house yuppies looking to party in the Hamptons has consistently headed East (Luckily for Lizzie Grubman, Conscious Point isn't even a memory in the minds of current trend-seekers). Keeping on trend, Montauk's nightlife scene will continue to dominate the Hamptons this summer, despite the growing battle between the townsfolk and these summer subversives who will be infiltrating their territory come Memorial Day weekend. But we're not here to take sides, we're here to report. Check out our official guide to Hamptons Nightlife 2013! More»

Summertime makeup is always tricky to figure out. With all the heat and humidity you really would rather not layer on foundation, creams, and powders, but you still want to look pretty. A quick fix to side step all of that messy makeup is to just swipe on a color of lipstick and step out the door. Susan Posnick's COLORESSENTIALS, with a formula that has the ability to adapt to nearly every skin tone will work for every girl. Far from a heavy, waxy lipstick, this light and mosturizing lipcolor is pigmented enough for hot summer days and but comfortable enough for crazy summer nights. More»

After two years of development, finally a new LES spot will be combining the two things it is most known for -- bodegas and bars.

The spot will be opening up in the former beloved Darkroom space, but with a completely different vibe.
