THE DRIVER’S SEAT

Highlights: If you’re in The Hamptons and want to relax after a concert over a cocktail with friends, this long-popular spot has something for you. The local watering hole has just launched a Wednesday night post-concert happy hour — bartender Daniel Hoctor presiding — to complement the Southampton Cultural Center’s popular series of summer concerts in Agawam Park. Half-price drinks will be available on the patio for the hour after the conclusion of each concert. In addition, live music will be featured each Wednesday night, something nice if you haven’t had your fill of music at Agawam. The concert series, now in its 25th season, Schedule is as follows, has an event beginning at 6:30 p.m. each Wednesday. Coming up: August 25: New Dawn (formerly Signify, funk, R&B); September 1: Vivian & The Merrymakers (calypso). The series is partially funded by the New York State Council on the Arts.
