Suzie Q here with the latest Buzz Around Town

I’m just about done with my holiday shopping…How about you? There are only two more Thursdays left for late night shopping – open till 8 pm!! If you need a unique gift idea definitely pick up tickets to the musical theatrical tribute performance of “Holiday Wishes from Mary Martin & Dinah Shore” at the Cultural Center – my parents saw the show and said it was the best one they’re ever seen and they have gone to many of them.  Check out this sneak peek message from the actresses right here!

For more great gift ideas, David at Brew Cheese now offers custom cheese baskets. Stop by and take a taste – they are all amazing! Just steps away is Christophe at Lakeside Emotions for some great wine so right there is the perfect pairing for a hostess gift!  The Educational and Cultural Center of course has really special items at their Gift Shop, and some of the newest ones are a Stony Brook coloring book and markers and sterling silver bracelets in the shape of Long Island with …get this… real sand in them from Sand Street Beach right here in Stony Brook!  I picked up a few of those for the beach lovers on my list! I understand there are only five left!

 I just found out that Sue, a dietitian, will probably be at The Crushed Olive in January!  What a great idea!  She can help with your recipes too!  And more good news…I just signed my nieces and nephews up for the Chocolate Works’ Gingerbread House Academy Thursdays starting at 6 pm.   They’re chocolate houses and can be decorated with marshmallows, colored candies and more. They will love this!  They also have a kit if you are unable to get there!

I stopped at Crazy Beans for my post-shopping treat and thoroughly enjoyed a Campfire Latte (made with Toasted Marshmallow and Caramel) Wow was it great, sinful but great so I had to share it with you!




Wishing each and every one of you a joyful holiday season and Happy 2017!

Ciao for now!
