    Can't wait to check out GofG Hamptons between the time you get on the LIRR until the time you reach your summer house? Looks like you might not have to, as plans to put Wi-Fi on the LIRR and Metro-North trains are well underway. Just save the XXX sites for the privacy of your own bedroom, okay? For your riding partner's sake. [NY Post]

    The back alleys of the Bronx, the mean streets of Detroit and... the village of East Hampton? Well, add it to the list for recent drug arrests. Four of them in fact. Looks like heroin and crack cocaine are really branching out these days, doesn't it? [27 East]

    You know they're running out of names for limited-edition Hamptons gear when they name a watch after the Montauk Highway. Regardless, for $20,600 you can be the proud owner of this Audemars Piguet Montauk Highway watch, complete with a "Hornback" crocodile strap. Since there's so many crocodiles crawling around the Hamptons and all. [Newsday]

    Is the US Open at Blackpage the next Happy Gilmore? Some people think so. Apparently "Take it all off, Tiger" was just the first comment to get the ball rolling. And everyone's blaming the ruckus on all the New Yorkers. I won't believe it until I see someone take a shot with a hockey stick though. Or an alligator bite someone's hand off. [Long Island Press]
