Friday begins the last week of July 2015, meaning that – like it or not – the summer is half over. Friday traditionally seems to be the unofficial start of the weekend, and there are so many events to attend. Live music at dozens of wineries, restaurants and breweries. Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and Jedediah Hawkins Inn both have live music Friday. Several places are open especially late, so if you don’t get to the North Fork until the evening, Bistro 72, Diliberto, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and Alure are all open with live music past 8PM.
On Saturday there are several not-to-be-missed events. Sparkling Pointe is having their homage to Brazil’s Carnival with their Sixth Annual Carnival Celebration. Authentic Brazilian costumed Carnival dancers, a Samba band, as well as specials on wine and several food trucks will make it a day to remember. Long Ireland Beer Company is having their first annual PINTwood Derby. Register and bring your pinewood car down for a day at the races. Roanoke Vineyards has Project Seven, a continuing event where they look at seven different wines produced in fields managed by the same vineyard manager. Let’s not forget live music and vineyard tours throughout the region. Let’s not forget that in addition to these events, there are dozens more. Live music and food trucks can be found almost anywhere.
Sunday is just as busy as Saturday, with live music at Sparkling Pointe. Jedediah Hawkins Inn is having their weekly clambake. Paumanok and Roanoke Vineyards both have oysters available with their wines as a way to spend a relaxing day. Bistro 72 continues their Summer Sundays Fun Days concert series as well with wine specials by Lieb Cellars.
Mondays events let you shake off the weekend. Alure has their Lobster Bash all afternoon, First and South has their Pig Roast, featuring a different Long Island brewery every week. Paw Paw pop up restaurant pops every Monday. They are booked through September but occasionally have cancellations, so get on that and make yourself a reservation and ask to be contacted if a spot opens!
Tuesdays are the quiet day of the coming week. Alure goes to the Greek with Santorini Tuesday with Greek food specials, Greek music, and alleged plate smashing all afternoon. Bedell Cellars has Taco Tuesdays with Noah’s On The Road food truck and live music.
Wednesday is everyone’s favorite hump day. First and South celebrates the lifeguards that keep us safe at our beautiful beaches with drink specials for them. Also in Greenport, Little Creek Oysters Happy Hour celebrates the middle of the week with local beer, wine and fresh oysters. Martha Clara celebrates Wine Down Wednesdays with a food truck, music and wine.
