Suzie Q here with the latest Buzz Around Town
This balmy November weather continues. I love it!
I just saw the Musical Theater Performance at the Educational and Cultural Center, which features a tribute to Hollywood icons, Dinah Shore and Mary Martin. Their lives were fascinating, the music and show were heartwarming and the food was fabulous (I took a picture so you could check it out. Yum. I just might enter it into the Instagram contest that’s running now!!) I recommend the show highly as a gift to yourself or someone else!
I love the village at this time of year…it’s so festive. It’s such a leisurely way to shop, not to mention being surrounded by the beauty here. I found great gifts for my nieces and nephews at Cottontails and all kinds of other great items at Crabtree & Evelyn, Stony Brook Gift Shop, Rocky Point Jewelers, Chocolate Works and the Village Coffee Market! I also just reserved a holiday tree for my Girl Scout Troop. They love coming here and decorating it and of course entering the contest for a $150 gift certificate! (I think the deadline is coming up so give them a call at 631-751-2244). I can’t believe the Holiday Festival is only a few weeks away! I can’t wait!
Of course I stopped for a bite to eat. This time it was Robinson’s Tea Room for a cup of their tea and one of their delicious homemade scones. Speaking of food, did you know that Fratelli’s also offers coffee from the Village Coffee Market and has a new chef, Barry! And Latitude 121 has a new manager as well, Michael! If you’re looking to give yourself a cooking break this holiday, Fratelli’s offers a Thanksgiving Feast for up to 16 people for $299 and for a cozier crowd, dinner for two for $39.95. Of course there are choices here to go out and eat as well! By the way, isn’t it great that we have KAH Fitness AND Zumba classes at Roseland School of Dance in case we need to work off a few of those pounds that always seem to creep up on us during the holidays!
More news! Did you see that some of the shops and restaurants here made Dan’s Papers’ “Best of the Best” including Mirabelle at Three Village Inn, Brew Cheese and The Crushed Olive….and Village Coffee Market is having a Holiday Open House November 29th at 5:30!
If you’re looking for a place to donate items for those in need during Thanksgiving, North Country Gas is holding a food drive. They need canned goods, instant potatoes, gravy, boxed items, etc! Just drop them off at the station and Brian and his staff will deliver them to families in need. I’ll be back to take care of that this week. Let’s not forget what Thanksgiving is all about.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Ciao for now
