The North Fork is in those dog days of summer. While we usually take the expression to mean that the heat and humidity are high, North-Forks learned that “dog days” actually refers to the rising of Sirius, the Dog Star, at sunrise in late July and early August. Coincidently, Moustache Brewery is having a dog-friendly event this weekend, truly making it a Dog Day.
There are plenty of things to do, live music, pizza and oysters throughout the coming week, so make your plans and please join us in celebration of the Dog Days of Summer, here on the North Fork!
Our Calendar is the best place to look for upcoming events to plan your time here, but here is a sample of what’s happening in the coming week:

The Old Field Vineyards are Tasting By The Bay, a tasting event where you reserve a tasting with the owner/winemaker of the winery and taste through wines discussing the growing process.
