This is the last weekend before the holiday madness begins: Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and the terror of only having four weeks before the big man comes! So take it easy, come out to the Fork for some great beer, wine, and food.
Some notable events to consider for this Weekend Event Update of November 21-23, 2014 include:
Lieb Cellars Winemaker Series at the Tasting Group on Saturday, Featuring Alie Shaper of Brooklyn Oenology. Private tours, tastings, and a “The Grapes of New York” lecture are all part of this great monthly lecture series.
Roanoke Vineyards is hosting their The Judgment of Riverhead Returns, which is a blind tasting of twelve 90-plus point wines from France, California, and Long Island. Six each of whites and reds, followed by a casual dinner. What better way to see for yourself how Long Island wines stack up against the competition!
Little Creek Oysters is once again becoming Little Creek PlayLab on Saturday, trading in shucking tools for building a robot.
Saturday marks the fourth and final of North Fork Table & Inn’s cooking classes on Saturday from 1-3PM. There are only 30 spots, and with prices at only $90pp, you should call to hold your place and learn from the best!
Let’s also not forget the daily specials of the 7 Days of Bistro 72, and Wednesday Happy Hour at North Fork Oysters in Greenport, from 5-7PM, as well as the regular goings on of so many North Fork restaurants, including the continuing Noah’s Winemaker Sunday dinners including this weeks dinner with Palmer Vineyards own Miguel Martin.
