Regular clients of Manual and Sports Physical Therapy at the Montauk Playhouse Community Center will not notice a big change since Meghan Ryan Finazzo bought the business early in August. She had already been running it as an employee for two years when opportunity knocked and she answered by buying the business and renaming it Montauk Physical Therapy.

Ms. Finazzo was a longtime visitor to the hamlet. As a child, she spent summers at her grandparents’ mobile home at the oceanfront Montauk Shores condominiums. “I was very lucky as a kid,” she said.

We've heard that sauvignon blanc pairs well with fish, but how about chardonnay mixed with prehistoric shark tooth jewelry?

For visitors without cars, residents who want to help alleviate traffic, or those who want an affordable solution to drinking and getting around, the Hamptons Hopper has hit the road.

Last week marked the maiden journey of the "retro chic" shuttle bus that bills itself as a mode of both “transportation and socialization.” The service, with a fleet of sea-green converted school buses, utilizes a mobile app for iPhone (and soon Android) to let riders see where the stops are and when to expect its arrival.

It made sense when Vineyard Vines, a shop known for preppy apparel, opened in Southampton, land of the Bathing Corp., Meadow Club, and assorted world class golf courses.  Having just opened a pop-up store on Main Street in East Hampton Village, the jury is still out on how well it will do in the burgh that is home more to Hollywood types and artists than socialites.
