This coming Weekend – Veterans Day Weekend – November 8 and 9- the North Fork is the place to be for anyone who loves local farm's produce, food and wine!

All local businesses, vineyards, restaurants and fisheries are putting their best foot forward in a first regional Harvest Festival, TASTE NORTH FORK!

We all know as locals that the East End and the North Fork are the pearl in the oyster of New York Tourism  and that fall is among the best times here: so this regional harvest festival is a wonderful time to come out.

Visit for details on this wonderful weekend – and hop on the busses which are looping around the North Fork between Riverhead to Orient with activities at lots of vineyard stops and at the two major hubs on Love Lane in Mattituck and in Greenport with – among other fun – a chance to meet the local farmers and sample their best produce.

Or click here for a program of what's going on.

Don't forget to thank the volunteers of the NFPC, the Greenport BID, the North Fork & Mattituck Chambers of Commerce  and the Town of Southold's EDC for making this terrific festival possible! (And of course EETA, LIWC and Empire State Development Corp).

Nothing beats a night at the Opera at the Met… but the Met, Life in a theater near you!

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

Who doesn't love a night at the Met! But how often do we East Enders really live up to the promise of the City nearby? Now you can see live opera performances by the Metropolitan Opera at East Hampton's John Drew Theater at Guild Hall or at Island 16 Cinemas in Holtsville a bit further West… The program includes Gotterdammerung (Wagner) , Verdi's Hernani, Massenet's Manon and Verdi's La traviata – my favorite… For a schedule visit here

And during intermission you get an extra you won't get even in the Met itself – a view behind the scenes and interviews with some of the principals and performers… A great experience.
