An Open Letter From Rachelle Hruska - Editor Guest of a Guest
Like all good things, the summer of 2008, as much as I would like it to, can not be endless and must inevitably fade. Consistent with my good-willed wishes, temperatures have been hanging out in "Indian Summer" territory, but I'm afraid that too will soon pass. This weekend, after the Oyster Bay "Oyster Fest" and the Hampton's International Film Festival, it will finally be time say goodbye to all things summer, and all things Hamptons. So, it's also time for us here at Guest of a Guest to officially say adios to summer, but on the way out we thought we'd share some of our fondest memories that will hopefully help us through those cold winter days until next season.

Yes, at times it was hectic, running back and forth between the city and the Hamptons, (god knows I've logged in my time on the Jitney), but at the end of the day we created a sister blog that I am very proud of and which I believe had wonderful content. And so, without further ado, my homage to Summer '08:
