Officials swipe left on Tinder-hosted party house in Montauk

New York entrepreneur Michael Hirtenstein rented out his residence at 230 and 234 Old Montauk Highway to a Tinder executive for the month of July, but after a few raucous parties, the renter was given the heave-ho. The executive, who paid $135,000 for the month, was using the property for company-sponsored shindigs hosting members of Tinder Select, an exclusive invite-only version of the dating app for celebrities and models, the East Hampton Star reported. Town officials went to the property several times over the weekend of July 14-16, due to noise complaints. Joshua Metz, the marketing director for Tinder, may face a $20,000 fine for several violations, the New York Post reported. [East Hampton Star, NYP]
