Montauk for Memorial Day Weekend

After living in New York City for over 7 years, the fact that I had yet to go to the Hamptons was pretty crazy. I decided it was finally time, so I booked the trip, made all necessary reservations, and bought some champagne. I was ready.

Here are a few pictures from my trip; if you’ve never been this is what you need to try.

Sagtown coffee was an absolute must to start the day with. Shaded with an orange linen, this adorable nook quickly found a home on the top of my list. IMG_2563

After searching through all my pictures, this is the only one I can find of the beach. Forgive me for apparently enjoying my time technology-free. I went a little crazy and closed my eyes too long, now my back is the color of my favorite shade of lipstick. This was right across from the hotel I stayed at (the Beachcomber, it was perfect!).

Brunch at Surf Lodge was delicious. Super cool space if you’re looking to chill out with a mimosa, or a trendy mason jarred ice coffee. I had the avocado toast, with an addition of $2 bacon. So yum!IMG_2585  IMG_8634IMG_2597

The Montauk Brewing Co. Was a great afternoon pit stop. You get to try six of their own brews, my favorite was the Whalebone. If you ever see it anywhere, you have to give it a try. Riley, brother to one of the founders, was great about answering my hundreds of questions. Like what ABV stands for and why they were so busy the whole time we were there. Because they’re the best, obviously!IMG_2604
Next came a late lunch at Tacombi. Seriously amazing tacos and corn. So glad there’s also a location in the city, I will definitely be making routine stops there all summer!IMG_2605 IMG_2607
Shortly after lunch, a crazy looking fog swept in. It was so intense it almost looked like smoke. But it didn’t rain on my parade! The next reservation was for dinner at Solé East. IMG_2611

How darling is this image. If I could choose what I want my summer to look like, it’s this. My favorite meal of the trip was here. The chicken entree was to die for. They also serve the fanciest bread to start.IMG_2613

My favorite night-out spot was Ruschmeyer’s. There was a huge outdoor area with lanterns, a fire pit, ping pong tables and hula hoops everywhere. There were a couple indoor areas as well, one nautical themed room that was dimly lit, and one open bar space. The best of all worlds here!

Since Sag Harbor was sort of on the way back to the city, I rerouted my trip home to include a stop. The fog was still low, but gosh was it beautiful there!! IMG_2617

Long car rides and lots of traffic. What else would I do with my time but pose my new lipstick on my denim jacket. My own version of red, white and blue!

My trip to Montauk was amazing. I experienced so many new places and can totally check it off my bucket list now! Good to be back to my city, and enjoy the last bit of Memorial Day weekend. And thank you to all who serve our country, of course!!

Where to travel next?! 🙂

Happy Wednesday! Ps. Who else is totally thrown off by the short week. Wednesday already? I’m not complaining!!
