Bay Burger, in Sag Harbor, opened for the season on Friday. The burger joint will now be open six days a week (closed Tuesdays) from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

360° East Opens At Montauk Downs

This week marked the opening of 360° East at Montauk Downs.

The banquet space at the state park golf course re-opened on April 1 under the new name. Lessing’s Hospitality Group leased the space for 10 years and plans to host weddings, social affairs and corporate events.

Named for its panoramic views of Montauk Lake, 360° East at Montauk Downs also overlooks the Robert Trent Jones-designed 18-hole golf course. The ballroom, which can accommodate up to 350 guests for a standing cocktail party or 225 for a seat dinner, features a high vaulted wood-planked ceilings and dark round chandeliers hang throughout the venue and a giant stone fireplace. There are floor-to-ceiling windows and a wrap-around patio.


Planning on heading into an opening series game at Yankee Stadium or Citi Field? If so, home actually won't be too far.

According to a couple media reports – on CBS New York and Newsday – DeLea Sod Farm will be once again providing sod to the home teams after being grown on DeLea plots all around Suffolk County – from E. Northport to Miller Place to Calverton.
