UD - Karaoke and Chromeo for the Fourth
INDEPENDENT SPIRIT

Karaoke and Chromeo for the Fourth

Two Independence Day parties here: one, a rollicking Hamptons beach rager with Chromeo DJing and fireworks over the ocean. The other, a ping-ponging, karaoke-singing Flatiron extravaganza with kegs, ribs and lobster rolls. There is no wrong answer.

411:

Jul 4, 2pm, $60-$5,000, Catch Beach Ball at Gurney’s, 290 Old Montauk Hwy, Montauk, 631-668-2345; noon-8pm, $60-$100, The Gander, 15 W 18th St (between 5th and 6th), 212-229-9500

UD - Your Oyster Boat Awaits
SHELL GAME

Your Oyster Boat Awaits

Some math:
A = A new, massive schooner-slash-oyster-bar on the Hudson.
B = A champagne-and-oyster party with views of fireworks and the Statue of Liberty.

A + B = Tomorrow.

Gotta love math.

Saturday

UD - Well, This Is Different...
ANIMAL PLANET

Well, This Is Different...

“... and that’s when the girl with the sexy cheetah mask and fluffy tail squeezed her way through the crowd...”

Oh, sorry, we were just talking about the animal-costume dance party going down in East Hampton. Were you interested in that?

PUFF PIECE

Seinfeld Night at the Ballpark

Saturday’s local minor-league baseball/Seinfeld 25th-anniversary events:

—You’ll receive a Keith Hernandez Magic Loogie bobblehead.
—The cereal-eating contest.
—The Elaine Benes terrible-dance-off.

God bless minor-league baseball.
