Even with that giant list from yesterday, there’s still a scary good number of activities that I haven’t yet covered. Here are the rest of my top picks for this unbelievable busy weekend.
The Amagansett Food Institute & Kate Mueth and the Neo-Political Cowgirls are bringing “Hysteria,” an immersive and haunting terror experience, to the Amagansett Farmers Market this weekend. The outdoors experience allows groups of 10 audience members to move through this guided journey approximately every 12 minutes to experience vignettes of “hysteria.” “Hysteria” runs from 7 to 10 p.m. each night, from Friday, October 28, through Sunday, October 30. Hot cider, donuts, sweet treats and wine will be available for purchase, through 10 p.m.This experience is for ages 13+. All tickets are $20 at the door.
Jack Ferver might not be intentionally working the dress-up holiday vibe but he’s certainly got us worked up into a frenzy (one might call it a fervor, haha) over his “Chambre” at the Watermill Center on Saturday, October 29, starting at 5 p.m. This program, which was developed during the artist’s residency at Watermill in 2014, is the final performance of the 2016 reACT season. Not only is this hybrid interdisciplinary performance and art installation a piece that tackles the timeless tension and widening gap between the “haves” and the “have nots,” it’s also inspired by a real-life MURDER case by a pair of French maids who beat their employers to death. Interesting. Tickets are $30 and grant access to a pre-show cocktail reception.
The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill is bringing back its annual “Artists Choose Artists” exhibit. The group show opens with a members reception on Sunday, October 30, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and features the work of 21 artists, seven who chose and 14 who were chosen. Juror Tina Barney with Dinah Maxwell Smith and RJT Haynes; Juror Lynda Benglis with Garrett Chingery and Saskia Friedrich; Juror Donald Lipski with Suzanne Anker and Ben Butler; Juror Tony Oursler with Jackie Black and Marianne Weil; Juror Jorge Pardo with Anne Bae and Monica Banks; Juror Cindy Sherman with Bill Komoski and Toni Ross; and Juror Leo Villareal with Karin Waisman and Almond Zigmund. Learn more about it here, in a feature I wrote for the Sag Harbor Express.
And lastly, for now, Long Island Restaurant Week has also returned. The 10th annual fall promotion kicks off on Sunday, October 30, and will run through Sunday, November 6. Participating restaurants will offer a three-course prix fixe for $27.95, all night, every night, except Saturday when the menu may only be offered until 7 p.m. Each restaurant will serve a unique menu with a minimum of three appetizers, three entrées and three desserts during the promotion. Venture out and explore the island and a few new places to dine.
