And from Page Six ... a place I've been to a few times but only in the winter:
Another piece of old Montauk is up for sale: the Shagwong Restaurant & Bar, on the market for $6.5 million. Owner Jimmy Hewitt is ready to sell the place, built in 1927, which has attracted stars in cluding the Rolling Stones, Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon, Yoko Ono and photographer and artist Peter Beard, whose work hangs on its walls. The whole building is on the block.
And speaking ELizabeth Taylor, RIP ... will watch "BUtterfield 8" again soon...
