Yacht Charters

Karen and Charles Giambalvo, captains and owners of the private yacht charter services Charles Charters, cruised 1,217 nautical miles up the East Coast, from Palm Beach, Fla., to spend the summer here on the East End with their 50-foot Jefferson motor yacht. 

The husband-and-wife team are basing their yacht charter service at Gardiner’s Marina on Three Mile Harbor, and are offering a variety of itineraries from half-day cruises with lunch to sunset and dinner cruises for up to 13 people. Trips depart from the Gardiner’s Marina or other locations for additional fees. This is the first summer for Charles Charters on the East End after operating for five winters out of Palm Beach.

Drunk Yoga

The founder and lead instructor of Drunk Yoga, Eli Walker, is bringing her vino-vinyasa yoga class to Montauk next week. The class is held at untraditional venues like bars and yachts, which makes it feel more like a “yoga party” than intensive group exercise, according to a release. 

In Montauk, Ms. Walker will be at Ruschmeyer’s on Second House Road at 10 a.m. and Grey Lady Montauk that same day from 2 to 3:30 p.m. The cost of the Grey Lady class is $39, including two glasses of wine, and tickets can be purchased in advance at The Ruschmeyer’s class costs $20 cash at the door. 

Despite the addition of wine (no hard liquor is served), the focus is still on proper technique and safety while learning the practice of yoga. Classes will be held at Grey Lady Montauk on West Lake Drive. 

Beginners and walk-ins are welcome, as part of the goal of Drunk Yoga is to make the practice accessible to those outside the traditional yoga community. More information including other upcoming classes can be found at the Drunk Yoga website. 


Second Hand Rose

Doreen Petrillo and George Miller have opened the Second Hand Rose antiques and thrift gift shop at 514 Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road in Springs. 

Ms. Petrillo followed her father into the antiques business and Mr. Miller is “very much about rescuing, restoring, repurposing, and recycling,” according to his partner. Together, they hope to “bring back some old-fashioned values and a sense of nostalgia” at their new shop. They also plan to donate a portion of proceeds to organizations such as the veterans charity Boots on the Ground and the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons. 

The shop will have its grand opening tomorrow and Saturday with wine, cheese, and popcorn for kids. The shop will be open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday through Sunday and from 10:30 to 7 on Monday through Thursday.
