Suzie Q here with my buzz around Stony Brook Village……
Hi everyone! Well, spring is finally here and I am back to my favorite Village which is all in bloom….just gorgeous!
I stopped by Fratelli’s to pick up my Memorial Day catering order and see that the musical theatre productions have begun at the Cultural Center! It’s The Story of Debbie Reynolds, and I hear the show will include a “Star Wars” tribute to Carrie Fisher! How great is that. I definitely will get mom and dad tickets for their upcoming anniversary and I think I will join them!
Another great event I see coming this July is the summer-long exhibit at the Cultural Center about world-famous inventor, Nikola Tesla. It’s being presented by the Tesla Science Center and I understand it’s the first time they have put together such an event about him. I heard it will be jam packed with special displays and many other items of interest. I looked him up and thought I’d share this link with you, http://www.teslasciencecenter.org/ So fascinating!
I have family coming in for the weekend and noticed you can now rent bikes right here in the village at TEBNorth Country Bike Rental which is located at the Service Station! They have beach cruisers, tag alongs (carries one child) and even three wheelers! We will definitely get down here and rent a few to see the back roads and byways. The Discovery Wetlands Cruises have begun as well and I can’t wait to reserve my spot!
My brother took in a Jazz loft performance the other day and told me about the “Basie Garden.” Have you seen it? It’s beautiful and is being planted to celebrate the 1st birthday of the Jazz Loft. Wow, I can’t believe a year has already gone by since they opened. You can be part of it by sponsoring a plant, dogwood tree or something else. They will deliver it there with your name on it! If you go to their website and click SHOP you can see all the plants, prices and full info. I ordered mine today! What a great community project idea.
I’m off now to get some more BBQ goodies. On my list? The Crushed Olive for their Wood Smoked Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Village Coffee Market for their cold brews (your choice of 5 flavors), Lake Side Wine Boutique for their great Cabernet and Brew Cheese for some Buffalo Blue grilled cheese. Yum! I love seeing all the American flags flying in the village and we will all be here for the Memorial Day service and parade which starts at 8:45 am!
