It seems as if someone has been taking it upon him or herself to remove no-parking signs from a stretch along the south and north sides of Industrial Road in Montauk. The signs were posted two years ago to prevent patrons of the Surf Lodge from parking their vehicles on the environmentally sensitive strip of land that borders Fort Pond on the south and a smaller pond on the north.
Montauk’s first Polynesian tiki bar opened in June and the people — locals, vacationers, fishermen, and even kids — have found it. Lynn’s Hula Hut, owned by Lynn Calvo, is located in a sandy “island” in the Montauk Marine Basin’s parking area.
Before opening the Hut, Ms. Calvo was hired to serve Polynesian-style drinks at South Fork parties from her small pickup truck, which has fringed palapa leaves (dried palm leaves) hanging from its bed.
At St. Therese
A family Christmas concert will be held at St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church on Sunday at 5 p.m. The adult and children’s choir will be singing holiday tunes, some solo. The audience will be invited to join a sing-along of traditional carols.
Christmas Eve services will be held at 4:30 p.m. and midnight at St. Therese, and in Spanish at 7 p.m. On Christmas Day, Masses will be celebrated at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
A good-sized crowd turned out to support Rob Astorino, the Westchester County executive who is running for governor on the Republican and Conservative lines, at East by Northeast restaurant in Montauk on Thursday evening.
Mr. Astorino, a former radio producer who lives in Mount Pleasant, N.Y., is making a bid against Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a Democrat, in November. He announced his candidacy in March, and accepted the Republican nomination in May. He is in his second term as Westchester County executive.
