Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor

Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor offers entertainment in a variety of styles.  I recently enjoyed an evening out at the theater and saw the production ‘Dinner’ with Mercedes Rheul.  It was so delightful and funny that I wanted to share with you their Theater and Comedy Club Series which are scheduled for the remainder of the summer season.

Theater Production –  Dames at Sea will be beginning on August 11th and will continue performing through September 6th.   Actors include Xavier Cano, Joyce Chittick, Stuart Marland, Kristen Martin, Laurie Wells, Patrick Wetzer, and more.  The New York Times says it is “A gem of a musical”.  Dames at Sea covers it all and the show must still go on!  A theater production company, a bad economy, and the main actor loses her home on opening night.  Dames at Sea theater production is sure to delight all theater goers.

Comedy Club Series – Robert Klein will be performing on August 31st at 8 P.M.  He has entertained audiences with comedy for over 40 years on Broadway, television, and film.  He has received two Grammy award nominations for “Best Comedy Album of the Year” and a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor.  This is sure to be an entertaining evening for all.

Janeane Garofalo and Al Madrigal will be performing on September 7th at 8 P.M.  and will close out the 2009 Comedy Series.   Janeane is best known for her film as “The Truth About Cats and Dogs”.  Al was the Award Winner for the 2004 HBO Aspen Comedy Festival and has been called “Dynamic” by the New York Times.  This dynamic duo is sure to deliver an evening of well needed comedy and laughter.

Diliberto Winery Features Music and Wine

During your visit to Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast, enjoy a North Fork summer evening in July with music and wine at Diliberto Winery.  Be sure to pack a picnic or enjoy takeout from one of the local restaurants.  Then sit back and enjoy your evening while sipping on one on their award winning wines.  This is surely a way to relax after a stressful week of work in the city. 

Live music will be provided on the patio at Diliberto Winery on the evenings of July 24th and 31st from 6-9 P.M.  Guests will enjoy a delightful mix of folk rock, jazz, and soul sung by Jeanine Cullen.  Jeanine Cullen is a gifted singer, songwriter, and musician and has performed in the past with wonderful reviews.

A stay at the Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast is always enjoyable, especially when accompanied by music, wine, and a visit to a local winery.

Wine Press 2009 Concert Series on Long Island

The East End Arts Council has again organized a stellar lineup for the Wine Press Concert Series for 2009.  What better way for our guests at the Shorecrest Bed & Breakfast to enjoy a Summer evening on North Fork.   In addition to a relaxing outdoor concert at a local winery, you will also be able to purchase the vineyards wines by the glass or bottle.  They only ask that you do not bring your own!  Rain or shine they are sure to please and this will become one of your memorable Summer events.

Remaining concert dates for this year are planned for:

 July 25th features Cat Ballou at Peconic Bay Winery.  This is a new group, but they have been involved in the local music scene for the past 10 years.  They offer their own versions of blues and jazz artists and played this winter during the Long island Winter fest Jazz on the Vine.

August 1st features Hugh Prestwood at Castello di Borghese Vineyard.   Hugh was inducted into the Nashville Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2006 and has been writing songs for two decades.  He will be joined by other Nashville music talents such as James Dean Hicks and Richard Leigh.

August 15th features Matt Marshak at Laurel Lake Vineyards.   Matt does a lively show which includes blues, rock, soul, and jazz.  He is new to the contemporary jazz scene and has been named one of the best new smooth-jazz artists.  He was a hit with the audience during the Long Island Winterfest Jazz on the Vine.

Greenport East End Lighthouse Tour

One of the delights of the summer season is to be able to take a cruise on the waters of Long Island and enjoy viewing the many lighthouses.  Our favorite lighthouse cruise is on board of the “Peconic Star II”.  The first East End Lighthouse tour of the season is scheduled to depart on Saturday, June 27th at 3:30 P.M.  Guests will enjoy a cruise on the waters of eastern Long Island and Gardiner’s Bay.  

During the cruise, you will learn about the maritime history of the area, including that of Plum Island and Gardiner’s Island.  For those history buffs, the cruise will be following the routes of American and British war ships in their 1812-1814 naval engagement.  Additionally, one may remember that Gardiner’s Island is where Captain Kidd buried his treasure.  Perhaps it may be discovered!  

Five lighthouses will be viewed along the way including Orient Point, Plum Island, Little Gull Island, Race Rock, and Long Beach Bar lighthouses.  The cruise includes dinner and Long Island wine.    Cost per person is $95.00 and space is limited.  What better way to enjoy a summer afternoon!
