Apparently Montauk is getting the Brooklyn-treatment. The hipster is eschewing the Hamptons in favor of this "drinking town with a fishing problem" and Montauk residents have their fair share of complaints.

In a recent interview with The East Hampton Star, Cardosa describes her own ambitions for running the club now that she has a fresh start.
