There are just 31 days until Memorial Day weekend, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #31: Go to Happy Hour

It’s no secret that prices inflate during summer in the Hamptons. A coffee or a sandwich can cost 20 percent more in July than it costs in January at some establishments. And in addition to food and beverages going up in price, some daily specials go up in smoke after Memorial Day.

Now’s the time to hit up Happy Hour at your favorite bars. Enjoy two-fers, complimentary bar food and even some live music. Sure, many pubs and restaurants will continue to observe Happy Hour in the summer, but the days and hours may be severely curtailed. And because the crowds will be smaller now, you can also get to know your bartenders. It will make ordering a cinch come summer — just nod and your tab will be open.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #30.
