Suzie Q here with the latest Buzz Around Stony Brook Village
I came to the Village today because it was a beautiful day and I was getting cabin fever. I’ve taken some outstanding photos recently! It’s such a clear, crisp day and the sky is blue so I thought I would get some more.
My first stop is at the Village Coffee Market for some more of his pancake mix and maple syrup- I tried it for the family over the holidays and it was terrific (I buy the gluten free).
I heard LOFT has a great sale so I’m going to stop there first but I’ve got time today so I’ll stop at all of the apparel stores, they’re all having sales –Wish, Chico’s, Mint and Jos. A. Bank. It’s a good time to pick up gifts for Valentine’s Day. By the way, the valentine outfits in Cottontails are red and outstanding!
When I passed Wish I saw that Chocolate Works has fresh fruit floral bouquets for Valentine’s Day. The fruit is dipped in chocolate. That’s something new. I’m ordering one now for my sister.
I’m also going to arrange to have a special merlot from Lakeside Emotions put in a basket of cheese with a cutting board from Brew Cheese and some of their craft beer. That will be a good gift for my friend.
While I’m here, I’m getting tickets to see Sinatra with Danny Bacher and the Jazz Loft band at the Educational & Cultural Center (ECC) this weekend. I’m going to one of the evening shows because they’re serving wine and refreshments. It’s only $40. I also see that on January 29th they are having Chinese New Year. This is the year of the rooster. I love that Lion Dance especially when the lion spits out cabbage for good luck. The Long Island Chinese Dance Group dancers have such beautiful costumes (these are some of the pictures I took last year). I’m bringing my niece because she loves the show and craft afterwards.
Now I’m off to Fratelli’s for pizza and an espresso and then home.
Now I feel refreshed – this place does that to you!
Ciao until next time!
