We'll be publishing The Weekender every Thursday afternoon throughout the summer. Got an event you think readers need to know about? Email us!
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!
STREET ART AT SYLVESTER & CO. (154 Main Street, Amagansett)
On Friday from 6pm to 8pm, Sylvester and Co. will be hosting the opening reception for "Kronicler: 10 Years And Five Continents Of Street Art Photography." Featuring 180 photos presented in various formats?traditionally framed, stretched on canvas, installation?the six-week exhibit looks to be well worth your time...we're actually going to leave the safety of our cave and check this one out. Bonus: All proceeds go to Child Mind Institute. Double Bonus: Tequila Avion is sponsoring the event. [LINK]
E.T. AT MULFORD FARM (10 James Lane, East Hampton)
The John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in conjunction with the East Hampton Historical Society will be showing everyone's favorite Drew Barrymore vehicle, E.T., on Friday at 8:30. Tickets cost five bucks (free for kids under 5), but that's pocket change if you haven't introduced your wee ones to one of Spielberg's finest films. Bring a blanket, pack some Reese's Pieces, and (leave your) phone (at) home. [LINK]
HAMPTONS GOSPEL AT AGAWAM PARK (25 Pond Lane, Southampton)
The Southampton Cultural Center kicks off its free series of summer concerts at Agawam Park with Hamptons Gospel on Saturday at 6:30. Much like the movie screening at Mulford Farm, pack a blanket, bring some food and prepare to enjoy yourself. However, unlike the showing of ET, this one's free (though donations are greatly appreciated). [LINK]
ARTWALK HAMPTONS (Various, East Hampton)
This Saturday, from 5pm to 8pm, eight East Hampton galleries will be participating in Artwalk Hamptons. The free, self-guided walking tour through the village makes for a nice little pre-dinner activity?especially on a nice night. Sotheby's (6 Main Street) will be holding reception to kick of this year's ArtWalk season. Just make sure to RSVP by giving a call to 631-907-8444. [LINK]
FUNDRAISER FOR/PROTEST OF MITT ROMNEY (880 Meadow Lane, Southampton)
This should be a fun one. If you've got $50K floating around, you can attend a fundraiser for Mitt Romney at the Southampton home of David Koch on Sunday (we bet they'll be serving lobster). If you feel passionate enough to protest the event...you can do that too! Demonstrators will be gathering at Coopers Beach at 3pm and then marching on over to the oceanfront manse to "non-violently disrupt" the gathering. [LINK]
