Bad Buoys.. Bad Buoys... watcha gonna do... when they come for you?!?




WELL, WE’RE ALMOST INTO AUGUST… CAN YOU BELIEVE!?!?! Polo is in full gear… the benefits are about 10 a weekend… and the heat is making some people just plain cranky. But you know what?! It doesn’t always have to be hot for some folks to be nasty. Just visit my favorite shop Bagel Buoy in Sag Harbor. It’s kind of like the soup man from Seinfeld but with.. you guessed bagels!!! Don’t ever expect a thank you or courteous response from the people who work there, especially the cashier (who I think is the owner). The bagels are actually pretty good and the salads etc. are fresh but unless you enjoy being chastised while you pay through the nose for some Philly, I suggest you stay clear. When I went there last winter, I haven’t gone back since; I had the pleasure of ordering a turkey burger for (I can’t remember exact prices but follow the story and you’ll get the idea), $4.00. When it came time to pay the cashier imagine my shock when I was told it was $11.00. How did that happen?? Well in a very terse response, the charming gal at the register told me I saw the “old price” on the menu. Hmmm. “Oh, and it’s a dollar for the slice of tomato and a dollar for the piece of lettuce.” Lovely!!!

Also, speaking of service… who get’s the money in the tip jar at AGAVE in Sag Harbor. I’m just asking… but I suspect it isn’t the staff!!! When I order my chicken tacos there… which are awesome, I give the tip directly to the person!!

Finally, I wonder what some sellers are thinking when they list their properties with a real estate agent and they end up with photos like the ones I’m about to post. Most buyers start their search on the internet. Agents use the photos off the agents website to forward to their clients . How in the world do you think you’re going to sell a house with photos like these. FYI… I hire a photographer for 90% of my listings.


YEAH, I'll rent this as long as I get the shelves!







Well at least you know it's a good place to Barbeque.








Do you think this is where they shot the movie version of The Secret Garden!!!?
