A Movie, a Music Festival and Other Weekend Ideas

Friday, August 17, 2018

Sometimes it can be hard to figure out what to do over the weekend. In New York and the Hamptons, there are just too many options. Fortunately, AVENUE’s editors have put their collective heads together and come up with a few suggestions, ranging from a late-summer blockbuster to a pop music festival. What unites them all is that they’re worth your time.


Crazy Rich Asians

We’re calling it now: Crazy Rich Asians is going to be the hottest movie of the summer. Let yourself be transported to Singapore and enjoy laughs, love and luxury with the Young family this weekend. Just don’t forget your Birkin.

In theaters now


Hot 100 Festival

 Listen to great pop music as the summer begins to wind down. Halsey, Rae Sremmurd, Future and others are coming to Jones Beach this weekend for the Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival.

Artists and Writers

Play Ball! The East Hampton Artists & Writers Annual Softball Game is one of the marquee events of Long Island intellectual life. Come watch your favorite Hamptons-based creative-types knock one out of the park. Just don’t strike out!
