If you are new here or missed a newsletter or two, here is your weekly round-up of previously mentioned Hamptons Happenings happening this week:
Marram's “Wellness Weekends'' kicks off this weekend on April 28th. During this pop-up series, Marram is partnering with AARMY to bring heart-pumping fitness classes, as well as Daily Dose to provide farm-to-table meals for the entirety of the weekend. Wellness Weekends will continue the following two weekends in May.
Long Island Restaurant Week started this past Sunday, the 23rd, and is running through April 30th. The restaurants participating span over 118 miles of Long Island, from Garden City to Montauk, however, there are a handful of restaurants right in our backyards. This list includes R.AIRE at The Hampton Maid, Calissa Hamptons, Bistro Ete, Elaia Estiatorio, and Page at 63 Main.
Hamptons How To: Welcoming Spring
If you were wondering how the Hamptons welcome Spring, it includes floral arrangements, cheese and wine, and doing good for the community. This weekend, Wölffer Estate is partnering with Share the Harvest to “Welcome Spring” and give back to the community. This Sunday, April 30th, Wölffer Estate is hosting a flower arranging class led by Farmer Florist, May Zegarelli from Ocean Fog Farm. During this experience, you will learn how to arrange a seasonal bouquet with locally grown flowers and enjoy all that Wölffer Estate Vineyard has to offer from their views to their wines. Tickets for this event are $120 and all of the proceeds go to Share the Harvest. To learn more about Share the Harvest and its mission, click HERE.

Everyone Loves Opening Weekend!
Start off the Spring and Summer season at the end of the world. Navvy Beach, in Montauk, is reopening for the season this Saturday, April 29th. Named one of the top five water-view dining spots on the East End by Newsday, Navy Beach brings customers breathtaking views and of course sunsets.
To set the scene for you, Navy Beach is located on a 200-foot private beach overlooking Fort Pond Bay and Gardiner’s Island. Not only are you able to dine inside their nautical-themed bar and dining room but also outside on their picnic tables on the beach. And it simply wouldn’t be the Hamptons waterfront, if you weren’t able to dock your boat right in front of the restaurant!
Since we’re on the topic of giving back, Navy Beach has also raised over $175,000 since 2013, in support of their philanthropy of choice, the Navy SEAL Foundation. To give you a quick history lesson, this ocean-front property was once occupied by the US Navy, and even today, two Navy piers are still part of their water landscape. Navy Beach will continue to support the Navy SEAL Foundation by adding $1 to each dining check with the option to increase your donation if you so choose.

And Here We Go Again…
Claudio’s Tavern and Grill
Of course, there’s more! Claudio’s Tavern and Grill’s season opener is this Thursday, April 27th at 5 PM. Claudio’s recently underwent a re-brand for its re-opening, focusing on classic American cuisine with a twist. And I have another history lesson for you. Claudio’s is celebrating 150+ years since its opening in 1870. Not to mention Claudio’s Tavern lived through Prohibition, which of course had a lively upstairs bar for consuming illegal spirits. Conveniently located on Greenport Harbor, alcohol was brought in by bootleggers by boat, through hidden trap doors behind the bar, one of which still exists to this day. It might just be the history buff in me, but that’s reason enough for me to add Claudio’s Tavern and Grill to my Hamptons Must-Go list. Just in case you need more convincing, you can come to Claudio’s Tavern and Grill by land or by sea as Claudio’s Marina is open daily with available slips for purchase. Take your pick!

Sag Harbor’s Newest Addition
Rumor has it Sag Harbor is about to gain some more Michelin recognition. Michelin award-winning chef Melissa O’Donnell is teaming up with Kittch, a livestream culinary platform, to open Sag Harbor Kitchen, a sea-to-table pop-up. Sag Harbor Kitchen is all about the experience, as it goes beyond just being a restaurant. Throughout the season, Sag Harbor Kitchen will host private events with world-renowned chefs, jazz nights, backgammon, and cocktail hours. Along with the restaurant, Sag Harbor Kitchen will also teach classes and livestreams in partnership with Kittch. Especially with Chef O’Donnell’s resume at New York City’s Stella, Li’l Gem, and Salt Bar, as well as her five Michelin Bib Gourmand awards, Sag Harbor is so excited to welcome her and her culinary excellence to town.
