September 1

Suzie Q here with the latest Buzz Around Town:

How can it be September already? Each of the seasons brings a special beauty to my favorite Village!

I came down recently to meet Nick and John from Stony Brook Harbor Kayak & Paddle Board! They recently opened at Stony Brook Marine Services across from the Three Village Inn. I wanted to check it all out before I rented. I’ve never done this before, so it was great to hear they give lessons as well! This will be a great time of year to go out with the trees and marsh grasses changing colors.

I’m also going to book the Photography Cruise on the Discovery boat for October 1st. The last one was rained out due to that heavy down pour so I can’t wait, especially since it’s the last photography cruise of the season!

I love checking out what’s new at the shops! Gary at the Village Coffee Market now has Nespresso biodegradable coffee refills! They are hard to find so that’s great news. I picked up quite a few and they are the best! Did you know that The Crushed Olive has a flavor of the month? This time it’s Fig Balsamic. They have a great recipe with that one plus the Blood Orange Olive Oil. Stop by and ask for it!

I see the LEGO Contest is starting at the Cultural Center and the deadline to enter is this Monday, September 5! It’s such a great event and all the entries will be on exhibit September 17th thru October 16th. My sister came down and signed my nephew up. His creation last year was pretty impressive. Also, I see the holiday performances have been announced already. It’s going to be “Holiday Wishes” from Mary Martin and Dinah Shore. It starts November 16th, so I have to make sure I get mom and dad tickets as well as myself! Two “celebrity” tributes for the price of one! The actors in these shows are always great.

Chess anyone? Erin at the Center told me they are getting in chess sets so people can play in Inner Court. They installed new tables there that have inlaid chess boards on them! What a fantastic idea!

I’m off now to meet some friends at Robinson’s Tea Room. (They’re all finished redecorating and it looks great). Of course afterward we will take in Mint, Wish, Chico’s and Loft to check out the fall styles.

Happy September! Ciao for now!
