Save The Date: “06880” Beach Party Set For July 17

Mark your calendar: Thursday, July 17 (6 p.m.). That’s the date of the 2nd annual “06880” party.

Last year’s event was a great success. It was a true community gathering — a chance to meet and mingle with the diverse “06880” community (both online and real).

This year’s party will be even better. Unlike last year, it won’t be the hottest, most humid evening in the history of mankind. (We hope.)

We’ll gather at Compo Beach — the alcohol-is-okay end. Bring your own food, beverages, beach chairs and blankets. Like the website, “06880” simply provides space to get together, have a good time, chat, laugh, and of course bitch.

We expect a big turnout at our "06880" party on July 18.

There’s no charge. It’s a “fun-raiser,” not a fundraiser.

The “06880” tagline is “Where Westport meets the world.” We call this party “where ‘06880’ meets each other.”

PS: We picked a Thursday because the beach is not as crowded as on weekends. As alert readers know, “06880” does not believe in reserving tables.

    Sounds great, Dan! I’ll bring a few dozen (homemade from scratch)cupcakes!

  2. Hall & Oates will be performing, especially for you!

  3. Michael Calise

    and as of this date there will still be a parking space for one and all

  4. Jo Shields Dickison

    You’ll look cute in that bikini, Dan.

  5. Will Gibson

    I want to know from where Dan got those hair extensions!!

  6. Stephanie Bass

    …also, can we have name tags so I can see who is dis-ing my entries?

  7. Stephanie Bass

    Good man.

  8. Bobbie Herman

    Will non-Westporters be able to enter without charge?

    Dan, can you please distinguish at the party that the Nancy Hunter Wilson who enters all the comments is not Nancy Wilson with a son Hunter who actually lives in town. Thanks, that would be quite helpful since I find myself being asked to defend points of views which are not my own as a case of mistaken identity.

    • Hi Nancy, come to the party yourself and do it! The other Nancy Hunter Wilson lives in British Columbia, and will likely not make it.

        True, I won’t make the trip, and I truly promise to end my entries so as to make life easier for all. It’s been an interesting (and sometimes informative) experience to read about my old hometown and its present day inhabitants. So much has changed, yet many characteristics remain the same.

        Cheers, and sincere best wishes Westport!
