Don't know what to do this weekend? Fret not, dear reader. We've scanned our inbox (and the Internet) for a few events that might be worth checking out. Enjoy!
"SCREECH" AT THE CANAL ROOM (230 Elm Street, Southampton)
On Saturday, Dustin Diamond (a.k.a. "Screech") will be hosting "Saved By The 90s" at the Canal Room. With music by The Bayside Tigers and 90s party favors (Z. Cavariccis and Drakkar Noir, perhaps?), the event could be a nice change from the summer's usual stuffy fundraisers. Doors open at 9:30pm. [LINK]
MIDSUMMER NIGHT DRINKS (56 Huntting Lane, East Hampton)
...speaking of stuffy fundraisers, this year's Midsummer Night Drinks takes place on Saturday from 6pm to 9pm. The event promises to be a memorable "evening of cocktails, music, and spectacular views." All money raised goes to support God's Love, We Deliver's mission to provided nutritious, individually-tailored meals to people who are too sick to shop or cook for themselves. Tickets start at $300 a pop. [LINK]
HAPPY HOUR AT SOUTH EDISON (17 S. Edison St., Montauk)
One of the best seafood spots in Montauk will be hosting a special Saturday Happy Hour the entire month of June. From 2pm – 4:30 p.m, you'll be able to enjoy $3 Blue Point drafts (which is a great deal) and $1 Blue Point oysters as well as their expanded Happy Hour menu. [LINK]
26th ANNUAL ARF GARDEN TOUR (Various homes, Southampton)
For those looking to get a peak at some of the nicest private gardens in Southampton, ARF's annual self-guided garden tour is this Saturday from 10am - 4pm. The $75 ticket cost ($175 if you want to attend the cocktail reception) benefits the Animal Rescue Fund's efforts to feed, shelter and find homes for dogs and cats on the East End. [LINK]
36th ANNUAL ROSE SHOW (91 Coopers Farm Road, Southampton)
If you're not all gardened out after ARF's "Peek Behind The Hedges" make your way over to the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton for the Rose Society's annual competition. The only thing prettier than the flowers on display? The price. It's free. [LINK]
BURGER AND A BREW AT ROWDY HALL (10 Main St., East Hampton)
Didn't think we'd forget about Father's Day, did ya? On Sunday, Rowdy Hall's got a special deal in honor of the man who brought you into this world (and can take you out of it!). For $17.50, you get a burger and a mug of beer?and you get to keep the mug! [LINK]
