Happy almost spring!
We’ve got another super crazy busy weekend. I feel like it’s already summertime. Whew!
Tonight I’m going to see “This Wide Night” at Guild Hall in East Hampton. The drama, which stars Chloë Dirksen and Jessica Mortellaro and is directed by Joe Minutillo, stages through March 26. I’ve been fascinated since I wrote about the show for the Sag Harbor Express.
Also tonight, the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill is hosting a Community Contra Dance with caller Chart Guthrie and Dunegrass, starting at 6 p.m.
I wanted to give a shoutout and send my congrats to Tucker Marder, whose MFA Thesis Show “Self Driving Car” is on view starting tonight at the Miller Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. Good for you!
Don’t forget that this is the final weekend for LI Winterfest. Check out what’s happening here.
Speaking of big to-dos, this weekend Vines & Branches celebrates its fifth year in business and its first year anniversary at 110 Front Street in Greenport with a whole slate of fun events. Stop in for free tastings and samples, plus a special reception today from 4 to 6 p.m.
On Saturday, March 18, the Topping Rose House Winter Farmers Market returns to Bridgehampton from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Stop by the Barn and Studio to shop for goods, products and wares from local farmers and artists. Don’t forget to pop in to the restaurant for one of the best lunches around.
Feeling arty? Then head to The Mannix Studio of Art on Gingerbread Lane in East Hampton for its grand opening on Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. You’ll be glad you did, especially as all classes will be 50 percent off this Saturday and next.And make sure to tell Karyn that I sent you. : )
While you’re in the neighborhood, pop in at LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton for one of Alex Feleppa’s wonderful Winter Walks at 1 p.m. Regardless of the season, this is one of my favorite spots on the entire planet.
Later on Saturday, March 19, at 6 p.m. check out the screening of “The Kids Menu” at LTV Studios in Wainscott. The documentary is by the same team as “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.” Tomorrow night, the filmmaker Joe Cross will be there for a Q & A as well.
There will also be free opening reception for “Southampton Under Siege: The British Occupation of Southampton during the Revolutionary War” at the Southampton Historical Museum on Saturday from 4 to 6 p.m. The fascinating exhibit will remain on view through December 31.
And for later night on Saturday, check out one or both of these musical acts:
Inda Eaton will entertain with some Original Music Adventures—a concert with three acts with Eve Nelson, Jeffrey Smith, B. Rehm-Gerdes, Curt Mychael, Lee Lawler, Rose Lawler, Heather Stewart and Leah Finkelstein—starting at 8 p.m. at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor.
The Lynn Blue Band will play at the Coast Grill in Noyac from 7 to 10 p.m. on Saturday night.
Either show is sure to be fantastic!
Enjoy the weekend!!!
