EaterWire: WTB's First Event, Minetta Tavern Closing in Two Weeks, The Surf Lodge to Open in Montauk,

LONG ISLAND CITY— Water Taxi Beach holds its first event of the season this weekend. They won't open for regular free admittance burger and beer enjoyment until May 22nd, but if you want to pay $20 for a beachy DJ Dance party, you might want to check it out. [WTB via Joey in Astoria]

GREENWICH VILLAGE— Minetta Tavern, which Keith McNally bought and is converting into a French restaurant, will close on May 6 according to Cutlets: "If you’re the nostalgic type, rather than the "can’t wait to see what Keith does with it" type (perhaps you’d rather remember the Waverly or the Beatrice the way they were), you might want to get to onetime speakeasy Minetta Tavern before its last night under the current ownership — May 6." McNally has said he will debut the new restaurant in the fall, so it could be closed all summer. [Cutlets]

MONTAUK— Good Night Mr. Lewis has the news of a new Montauk hotel and restaurant The Surf Lodge from the owners of Cain and "Hospitality Consultant" Steven Kamali: "The 32 room hotel, including restaurant, bar, boutique, and outdoor deck will open during the Memorial Day holiday weekend."
