On this the first true Monday of Fall 2009, TTT looks back on the last weekend of summer: Labor Day in the Fire Island Pines.
In the FIP, beach time is best for day. It's all about hours spent sweating out last night's vodka and checking out who's hottest for night.
Never under estimate the pool scene. When you've got beef in the house, why go out for chicken?
...or monkey business?
Of course day-parties are best for pre-tea.
The Gold Party tore it up on Saturday:
White Diamonds shut it down for Sunday:
"These have always brought me luck..."
And of the three teas, Middle was best for Summer 2009, don't you think?
FIP 2009 was all about fun, sun, fashion and romance. Love took over, I could see your halo and the trannies just danced. It wouldn't be The Fire Island Pines without a few sightings.
