This weekend on Long Island

This weekend on Long Island find a friend and warm up with some spirits from our east end wineries, open year-round.
Try some sparkling wine paired with cheddar mac at Sparkling Pointe in Southold. More info here: http://bit.ly/14QMN3A. Or take some Varietal Perspective Tastings classes, featuring pairings and an explanation of the style utilized to create the wine, at Martha Clara. More info here:http://bit.ly/1AbpSIb.

Tuesday Trivia! Long Island is an island, right?

Tuesday Trivia! Long Island is an island, right? Technically speaking, yes, but in the eyes of the federal government it was decided we are an extension of the mainland. This really muddles whether we live IN or ON Long Island! The 1985 ruling was handed down by a Supreme Court case, United States v. Maine 469 U.S. 504, in the interest of classifying the Long Island Sound and similar bodies of water as juridical bays.  Gorgeous photo by: Ann Marie Bain.
