I stopped in to the Village today specifically to register for the “Ol’ Blue Eyes” Valentine performance with Mark Buttice on February 10! It’s only a week away! I’ve seen him in concert before and what they are advertising is true…if you close your eyes….you actually think it’s Frank! His back-up band is amazing as well. I was able to see the menu which includes so many delicious items and Frank’s favorite foods (how clever!) …such as “Chicken Cardinale” (Red Pepper, Fresh Mozzarella, Marsala Reduction); “Salmon Con Montello” (Capers, Lemon, Fresh Thyme) and New York Style Cheese Cake! Wow I’m hungry for it already and can’t wait to enjoy this great night with my hubby and all of our friends.
My sister just signed my nephew and niece up for “Teepee Ted” during the winter break. I heard the program is great and includes how Indians lived in the wilderness on Long Island, how to use bow and arrows, making tools and stringing jewelry! It’s for 6 to 9 year olds and runs February 21 to 23! I know “Running Scared, Running Free” is being offered again at the Cultural Center now through February 28. I’ve seen it and it is one powerful theatrical performance about a slave escaping through the underground railroad.
Of course I can’t come to my favorite Village and not take advantage of the one stop shopping for great Valentine’s Day gifts. Village Coffee Market has a “Chocolate Lovers Basket” which is quite unique with different chocolate flavored coffees …Brew Cheese has baskets with craft beers, great cheeses and cheese boards…and The Crushed Olive has amazing choices as well. Speaking of The Crushed Olive they now have a nutritionist in the shop every Sunday and Monday! The Blue Spa has facials to die for and I got my sister the Chocolate Mousse and Sweet Red Rose ones! She will love it! There are so many great things to choose from here that I sometimes forget another choice is the Gift Certificate that can be used anywhere in the Village! You can pick one of those up at the management office above Cottontails!
Last but not least Stony Brook Village is celebrating We Love Our Veterans for the month of February! Participating shops and restaurants will thank and honor the service of our brave men and women by offering special discounts, free coffee, free samples and much more so spread the word. You can check out all the offers on the website! This is yet one more reason why I love this Village!
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!
