Number four on my list: ice cream at Bridgehampton Candy Kitchen (this is their watermelon flavor—yum)
1. See a Movie: Blockbusters like Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3 are at UA Southampton 4 Theatre and UA Hamptons 5, but there are some great indie gems—like Mud, starring Matthew McConnaughey and Reese Witherspoon—playing at Sag Harbor Cinema. visit fandango.com for times and locations
3. Read: Stop by the public libraries in East Hampton, Bridgehampton, and Westhampton. Check their calendars for great kids events and storytimes, too. For a permanent addition to your at-home library or coffee-table, pick up Kelly Killoren Bensimon's In the Spirit of the Hamptons at BookHampton.
4. Ice Cream Run: Yummylicious in Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton Candy Kitchen, The Fudge Company in Southampton, Scoop du Jour in East Hampton, Bay Burger in Sag Harbor, and Sylvester & Co. in Sag Harbor serve my favorite scoops.
8. Eat In: Pick up prepared food and pitch a picnic in the living room. Loaves & Fishes, Goldberg's Famous (for bagels and lox), and Pepalajefa always have what I'm looking for. I also love The Milk Pail Farm for homemade apple cider donuts and pies, Mecox Bay Dairy cheese, Mary's Marvelous granola, and fresh eggs from Rogers' Farm.
