Everyone's had plenty to say about Long Island's South Shore -- especially Montauk what with the Surf Lodge and the Montauk Monster (!!!) -- but what about the North Shore? Is it chopped liver? Where is the love, people?

Manhattan's Bryant Park Hotel, known for its romantic ambience and killer views, is stepping up to the plate. They're doing their part to redirect some of that ghastly weekend traffic away from the Hamptons with a shopping package. The draw? A mall, of course -- The Americana Manhasset.

Thassright, you'll get a $500 Americana Manhasset GiftCard, roundtrip car service straight to this high-end shopping center bulging with boutiques like Prada, Gucci, and Etro, with a stop along the way to either The Old Westbury Gardens or The Nassau County Museum of Art. Plus you'll get a free gift bag, a personal shopper (like you need it), and free breakfast for two.

The "gotcha" is in the fine print, though: "Rates vary due to time of year and type of room." We're thinking that, because the special runs from now through December 31, 2008, rates are going to be much higher closer to the holidays -- especially with all those mallrats gunning for the $500 gift card.

The BPH and Americana Manhasset have something else in common---annoying websites. I'm sorry BPH people who are reading this but it's true.

I go to BPH.com and it opens a whole new browser window that spans the entire width of my laptop screen and plays annoying music.

Americana Manhasset is also flash-heavy with annoying music. Why do people think these things are cool?
