North Fork Long Island Theater

November 11th, 2012 by Katie Pate

As the weather gets colder, many of us are drawn to the movies. The theater provides a place to escape from the dark and murky atmosphere outside.

Along that same train of thought, a live stage play might be just the right activity for a chilly November night! There are two upcoming performances I want to share with you. One a comedy, the other a romantic tragedy. Make a night of theater a really romantic event with a stay at our Long Island bed and breakfast after the show.

The Best Play Ever Seriously!

Presented by the Guild Hall and The Naked Stage on November 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the John Drew Theater (158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY). FREE ADMISSION!

The Best Play Ever… Seriously! Is the story of Harris Fynneman, a neighborhood mailman and the “village idiot,” who awakens one morning after a drunken black out to discover he has written the best play ever… Seriously! Unfortunately, no one, including himself, believes this. With the help of his wife and a suspicious professor, Harris journeys to discover the terrifying truth behind his unintentional encounter with genius.

Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl

Presented by the Guild Hall and The Naked Stage on December 11 at 7:30 p.m.at the John Drew Theater (158 Main Street, East Hampton, NY). FREE ADMISSION!

A photo of Eurydice being performed at the Wilma Theater.

Definitely one of my top three favorite Greek myths, the story of Eurydice and Orpheus is one of ego, all-engulfing love and the underworld. This performance is a re-telling of the ancient Orpheus myth from the female perspective of Eurydice.

The play follows Eurydice as travels into the Underworld, where she meets her father. In the Underworld, Eurydice re-learns language and memory until she has to make her ultimate decision – whether to follow Orpheus back to the land of the living.

This is going to be a very interesting bit of theater which I would love to see. On a side note, if you like the Orpheus story, there are two films I would also recommend: ‘Black Orpheus’ (or ‘Orfeu Negro,’ in Portuguese), a Brazilian film from 1959 and ‘Orfeu,’ a 1999 re-make of the 1959 film. The earlier film is highly acclaimed and the later very entertaining. Both are choked full of wonderful samba music and dance.

 

September 21-23, 2012 Greenport Maritime Festival

September 1st, 2012 by jenn

Compass

Come to Mitchell Park in Greenport, Long Island for the 23rd Annual 2012 Greenport Maritime Festival.

September 21-23, 2012 Greenport Maritime Festival

 

Greenport has a long, proud maritime history. From the late 1700s to about 1859, the town was a major whaling port. During both World Wars, Greenport’s shipbuilders were busy supplying craft for the US Navy. And the town’s fishing industry has been going strong since the mid-1800s. Such a rich cultural heritage deserves a big celebration and Greenport does just that every year with its fall Maritime Festival.

Downtown Greenport comes alive with free, family-friendly events and activities. Enjoy the 23rd Annual Greenport Maritime Festival with fireworks, the delicious clam chowder contest, a show of beautifully crafted wooden boats, and whale boat and kayak races. There will also be a fun parade with everything from classic tractors to marching bands. At Greenport’s waterfront Mitchell Park, ride the antique carousel, listen to live music and peruse the tents with food, drink, crafts and more. Be on the lookout for roving pirates, too. (The Kings of the Coast Pirate Show will be at noon, Sunday.) Greenport’s shops will be open and the East End Seaport Museum will have special events and exhibits in honor of Greenport’s maritime history.

There will be even more wooden boats this year, all handcrafted beauties that are worth a long look. Scenic cruises on Saturday and Sunday will give visitors a chance to visit the Long Beach Bar “Bug” Lighthouse. (It’s called the “Bug” because of the original lighthouse’s long insect-like legs.)

Like last year, the Saturday evening cruise will stay out in time for the evening’s fireworks display. For more information and a detailed schedule of events.

Our North Fork Long Island B&B is only minutes from the Maritime Festival in Greenport, NY. Arbor View House will be just the right place to stay while you enjoy Greenport’s heritage fest, the wineries of the North Fork and the natural beauty of our area.

2012 North Fork, NY 4th of July Celebrations

June 29th, 2012 by jenn

Fireworks display

Enjoy the 2012 Fourth of July Celebrations in Southold and Greenport, NY!

During your stay at our Long Island Wine Country bed & breakfast, don’t miss out on the local Independence Day celebrations. Southold and Greenport will be hosting fun 4th of July events.

Southold, NY 4th of July Parade 2012

At noon on Wednesday, July 4th, the Southold Village Merchants will have their 15th Annual 4th of July Parade. Arrive before the festivities to get a good spot and enjoy a good old fashioned 4th of July parade. Wave a flag as the marching bands, classic cars, floats and red, white & blue riders on horseback pass by to cheers and applause. The route will start at Boisseau Avenue and continue to Tucker Lane Route 25. For more information, call (631) 765-4100.

2012 Greenport Carnival and Fireworks

Only five minutes from the inn, Greenport’s annual Carnival will offer a wide range of fun events, rides and games from July 3-7. The Greenport Carnical is open every evening from 6-11 p.m. at Moore’s Lane. Get on the carousel and have that once-a-year elephant ear or your favorite forbidden carnival treat! It’s a worthy cause too; the event raises funds for Greenport’s 7th Relief Hose Co. & Phenix Hook & Ladder Co #1.

There will be spectacular fireworks displays not only on the 4th of July, but also on Saturday, July 7th at 10 p.m. Arrive a bit earlier to the rear of the Green Port High School grounds at 720 Front Street if you want to watch the fireworks up close. Whatever spot you choose, bring your picnic blanket and goodies to enjoy with the show. If the merriment of a 4th of July crowd isn’t your style, you can always watch the fireworks as you stroll the nearby beaches.

Before the evening events, you can arrive during the day to experience downtown Greenport, NY. The fine seafood restaurants will be open and quaint stores beckon with antiques and unique arts and crafts.

After all the excitement of the North Fork 4th of July, you’ll love returning to your comfortable bed at our Long Island, NY accommodations.

See the Tall Ships 2012 in Greenport

April 5th, 2012 by Gail

The Tall Ships 2012 are coming to Greenport on the North Fork of Long Island over Memorial Day Weekend.

This is an extraordinary occasion–a chance to see some of the most glorious ships in the world under sail. The ships will arrive on Friday, May 25th and depart on Tuesday, May 29. While they’re docked in the Village of Greenport, visitors are invited to step on board and speak with members of the crew.

It’s magnificent to simply see the ships. Being able to tour them is, as they say, icing on the cake.

We’re looking forward to Memorial Day Weekend at our North Fork Long Island Bed and Breakfast, which is about five minutes from the Village of Greenport. You can bike to Greenport from Arbor View House in about fifteen minutes; that’s a good option during busy times like Memorial Day Weekend with the Tall Ships in town.

There will be vendors in town and Front Street will be closed each day until 6 pm.

Come see the Pride of Baltimore II, a reproduction 1812-era topsail schooner and the Goodwill Ambassador of the State of Maryland.

North Fork’s Jazz on the Vine

February 27th, 2012 by Gail

Good wine is delectable. Good jazz is delightful. The combination of outstanding wine and jazz is cause for jubilation. These days there is much jubilation on the North Fork of Long Island, thanks to Jazz on the Vine.

Long Island Winterfest, Jazz on the Vine

Several weekends of superlative jazz and wine on the North Fork of Long Island.

Jazz on the Vine brings exceptional jazz musicians to Long Island wineries from February 11 to March 18, 2012. During these six weekends, North Fork wineries simply buzz with activity and music. Guests of our Long Island Bed and Breakfast are well situated to take advantage of all the special events.

This is the fifth winter that jazz and wine are joining forces on Long Island. The program in 2012 is even bigger and better than in past years, with more than 70 performances at 20 wineries. On any given day, one can hear several performances and try wines from different vineyards.

Jazz on the Vine hosts award winning jazz groups, such as the Vadim Neselovskyi Trio and All that Jazz, an All Star Super Band known for its expansive repertoire rooted in Mambo, Funk, Nordic, South African and Jazz. There are jazz quartets, jazz singers, and funky duos. There are Afro-Cuban Jazz musicians, Brazilian musicians, and musicians with Gospel roots. The variety of music that floods North Fork Wineries during Jazz on the Vine is almost as astounding as the sheer talent behind it.

Participating New York wineries include: Bating Hollow Farm Vineyard in Baiting Hollow, Macari Vineyards in Mattituck, and Peconic Bay Winery in Cutchogue. Numerous performances take place each Saturday and Sunday. Venues include waterfront tasting rooms and majestic estates overlooking acres of grape vines. Avid wine tasters and jazz fans can make their way from one vineyard to the next, sipping different varietals as they are serenaded by different musicians.

You won’t want to return to the city after an afternoon of wine tasting. You’ll want to sleep on the North Fork of Long Island and then repeat the glorious experience the following day. You can. Spend the weekend at Arbor View House, our New York Bed and Breakfast near Greenport.

Please find more information at Jazz on the Vine.

A new Greenport Restaurant: Noah’s Opens in Greenport, Long Island North Fork

January 28th, 2010 by wilfredjoseph

Noah Schwartz is a native Long Islander and a graduate of New England Culinary School. He worked for over seven years in California’s wine country and then made his move to long Island North Fork Wine Country.   He spent several years at the Sea Food Barge and when that closed he took the opportunity to open his own restaurant.  He has experience in opening restaurants and this one is very special to him, as it is his own. Noah’s in Greenport.  Noah will bring to Noah’s, a culinary experience enjoyed in California and he is already receiving positive feedback from his customers.  Recent reviews had customers raving about the scallop ceviche and pomegranate ribs.  The sardines were quite a surprise and totally delicious as is the  Pulled Duck from the Crescent Farms in Aquebogue.  There are so many Oyster dishes  so that you’d think that he’d call the place Noah’s Oysters. Even though the menu is mostly fresh seafood, Noah is a master with Steak which  is done with Manchego Cheese and rich crispy onions, yummy.

The concept at Noah’s is to offer “small plates” at the top of his menu ranging from $6 to $15.  Thus, allowing his guests to sample multiple smaller plates and enjoying a variety of dishes.  The menu also features 2-3 oz. wine pours to accompany the small plates.  Of course, to balance this he will also have snacks on the menu beginning at $3.  Truly a delightful way to dine!

We have eaten there several times and recommended Noah’s to guests  who rave about the selections and love the ambiance and personal service. What we love the best are the small plates giving us more choices and the opportunity to sample several dishes.  Noah’s Restaurant is now the newest and  hottest restaurant in Greenport.

Call for reservations at 631-477-6720 tell them Wilfred from Arbor View House Bed & Breakfast sent you.

Noah's on Urbanspoon

Coming soon- Noah’s new expansion.
