Sarah Jessica Parker is on the cover of the February issue of InStyle magazine. In the accompanying article, good friend and East Hampton resident Katie Couric says, “Few women are more effortlessly dazzling or more enjoyable to watch on the red carpet or at dressy charity events than Sarah Jessica Parker.”

Void where prohibited, some restrictions may apply.


This is the Hamptons!

Amagansett’s Matthew Broderick appeared in Celebrity Autobiography at Manhattan’s Stage 72 last week. According to the theater, the ongoing series features “wild, hilarious and true celebrity confessions…acted out live on stage by the funniest performers on earth.” Amagansett resident Paul McCartney will join Ringo Starr for a Beatles reunion on The Late Show with David Letterman on Friday, Feb. 7, as part of a special weeklong lineup celebrating the Beatles’ first New York performance 50 years ago. Will Julian and Sean Lennon join them? What about George Harrison’s son Dhani? What about…Yoko? Locally, Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor is staging a tribute of its own thanks to film archivist and Beatles fan Joe Lauro. Read all about this weekend of Beatles love during Sag Harbor’s annual Harborfrost, Feb. 7–9, on page 32. (Continued on page 16)


The biggest food happening since Dan’s Papers Taste of Two Forks—the monthly Topping Rose House’s Farmers Market in Bridgehampton— opened to overwhelming attendance on Saturday morning. Balloons, wine samples and a whole lot of locally produced foods greeted the standing-room-only crowds that included food world notables Chef Jeanne Cuddy-Peretz (The Barefoot Contessa), Kathleen King (Tate’s Bake Shop) and East Hampton Gourmet’s (EHG) Kate Pratt. The camera-shy Pratt was there to train an assistant in promoting EHG’s crisp breads and coconut bliss bites. These goodies are already a hit at Topping Rose and Pratt is in talks with several high-end hotels in New York. Topping Rose’s Chef de Cuisine Ty Kotz popped in to personally thank all of the 31 vendors for attending. Some attendees ran into Chef Tom Colicchio there, in his signature white hat. Colicchio cooked up a special venison dinner that evening. You can read more about this new farmers market on page 24. The next market will be held on Feb. 15.

“Along with the New York Subway System, Hamptons Subway is the only underground transit system in the State of New York.”

The H amptons Subway Newsletter By DAn rattiner

Week of January 24–30, 2014 Riders this past week: 8,911 Rider miles this past week: 84,323 DOWN IN THE TUBE Wall Street’s Ken Lipper was seen heading east on the subway on Monday morning leaving Wainscott and heading off to meet someone at the new Georgica stop. Rosanna Scotto was seen on the Hamptons Subway on Friday afternoon leaving Eastport and heading west toward Westhampton Beach. She was reading a script. Jason Kidd was seen bouncing a basketball on the subway between Southampton and Bridgehampton late last Sunday night. Madonna and Matt Lauer were in conversation on the subway talking about horses between Noyac and Sag Harbor on Tuesday at 4 p.m. WATCH OUT FOR THE CLOSING DOOR WARNINGS We’d like to refresh our riders about the rules and regulations regarding the sliding doors on the subways. We don’t want another incident such as we had on the morning rush hour last

Monday when one of our riders unfortunately lost a limb. The recorded announcement says “watch out for the closing doors” when a train at the station is about to depart. Five seconds later, if the doors can’t close, they reopen and the announcement “watch out for the closing doors” repeats. Three seconds after that, the doors will try to close, and if unable to do so, will again reopen. Three seconds after that, the closing doors will try to close a third time, and if unable to do so, will reopen. Then three seconds after that, the sliding doors will close no matter the consequences. We cannot delay the trains more than this number of seconds. HAMPTONS SUBWAY IN THE MOVIES Gerald Foxworthy, our Hamptons Subway historian laureate, has written a free pamphlet documenting the films that Hamptons Subway has appeared in. Perhaps the most well known is Throw Mama from the Train (1987). And perhaps the second most well-known is Michael Jackson’s music video Beat It (1982) from his album Thriller. Other films the subway has appeared in are the 1990 documentary Subway: The Empire Beneath New York’s Streets

(Hamptons Subway was used as a stand-in for the New York Subway System), also Subway Stories (1997), Subway to the Stars (1987), and Subway (1985). Other movies include The Bourne Conspiracy (2008), Black Swan (2010), The Devil and Miss Jones (1941), Dirty Harry (1971), Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995) King Kong (1933), The Matrix (1999), Sliding Doors (1998), Speed (1994), and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988) Hamptons Subway has received three Emmys and four Academy Award nominations for best set dressing, but never has gotten the Oscar. PLUNGING INTO DARKNESS Hamptons Subway is working on a solution to the occasional problem of trains plunging into darkness when they go into a tunnel. The lab workers at our Hamptons Subway headquarters building on Ponquogue Avenue in Hampton Bays are fiddling with voltaic solar panels. SOUTHAMPTON PLATFORM CLOSING MONDAY Bob Harrisberg and Henry Allenfaddle, two men who met as flagmen in the Hamptons Subway tunnels, will enter into wedded bliss in a ceremony on the Southampton platform next Monday at 1 p.m. Be alerted. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE Several of our spurs are shut down during the winter. I’m referring to the East Hampton and Southampton to the beach shuttle spurs. We’ve had problems recently with people climbing up the back of the beach and going into the tunnels there to sleep or do other unmentionable things to one another in there. We are locking the doors so this can’t continue.

Free Central Air Conditioning for 1 Year

Purchase of a Furnace at 1/2 Price. Most anyone in business has their busy and slow times. The heating and air conditioning industry is no different, and fluctuates dramatically with season and weather. Like now after the holiday season no one is looking for either air conditioner or heating. This is Doug Matz, Owner literally how it works. In the off-season the air conditioning and heating business slows down to the point where our installers are sitting around without much work. Many companies lay people off in these slow times and hope to replace their skilled workers when business picks up. This is not a good business practice and is unfair to the employees and their families.

Here’s my offer: Summary: • Purchase a premier air conditioning system and get a high efficient furnace at 1/2 price • Reduces utilities up to 40% • Free-repair warranty for up to 5 Years • The best in quality and efficiency • Financing available Plus all our systems are covered by our Exclusive 365 day 100% Unconditional Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee. So call Flanders Heating & Air Conditioning today for your free no obligation survey at 631-727-2760. This offer expires March 2, 2014.

Other dealers have refused to compromise and let the public know this, but at Flanders we value our skilled workers greatly and would rather keep them busy, even if it means making little or no money. To do this, I’m going to slash the price of our first rate air conditioning and heating systems. Here’s my offer: Purchase a premier central heating and air conditioning system (furnace & air conditioner) and I’ll Give you a high efficient furnace at 1/2 the normal price. If you need only an air conditioner or furnace, I’ll still give you a discount off the cost of the equipment which can reduce your utilities up to 40%.

Tick Lovers Protest Deer Cull Town officials have not been surprised to receive numerous irate letters and phone calls, including several that threatened violence, protesting the proposed plan to cull the local deer population. More surprising has been the vociferous outcry from tick lovers. A shadowy organization, calling itself Ticks In Crisis (TIC), has now claimed responsibility for sending threats to local officials, warning them not to take away the “life-sustaining tick nourishment” represented by the deer. An anonymous audiotape sent to a town board member explained that every deer provides food and shelter for thousands of ticks— and that killing a deer that provides such sustenance will not only mean certain death for the ticks on that particular deer but also disrupt the ticks’ abilities to reproduce. “The death of those gentle ticks will be on your head,” warned the voice on the tape. Police are investigating. Happy Birthday, Old Man McGumbus! Residents of Shelter Island had a harrowing weekend, as without warning the entire island went into lockdown. Information has been slowly trickling out, and it is now possible to piece together what happened. On Saturday, Old Man McGumbus celebrated his birthday, an event that was anticipated and braced for by the local police. What hadn’t occurred to local officials was that McGumbus’s “homeboy” North Korean leader Kim Jong-un would be joining the festivities. Blotter readers will doubtless remember McGumbus’s numerous high-profile trips to Pyongyang to “party with his bestie Kim-Dogg.” The leader of the oppressive North Korean communist regime chose McGumbus’ birthday this past weekend to return the visit, landing a posse of 24 comrades on McGumbus’s backyard in three Mi24 helicopters. Because the North Koreans came brandishing machine guns, a decision was made to advise residents of Shelter Island to “shelter in place.” It is reported that the “Dear Leader” delivered a rather tuneless rendition of “Happy Birthday” to McGumbus, who was overcome with emotion, or cognac, or a combination of the two. Keyboard Player Too Funky During a routine check on Bay Street Theatre during Nancy Atlas’s most recent “Fireside Session,” police determined that keyboard player Danny Kean was “excessively funky.” Noting that, as a result of Mr. Kean’s “making it so funky,” the large audience at Bay Street had commenced to “getting down without shame,” the police were prepared to issue a ticket when their own booties began to shake and they were forced to “give up the funk.”

You see, January through March is a slower time of the year for my company. With after holiday expenses, folks are putting off buying an air conditioner and furnace. So by helping us now we’ll pass big savings on to help you, a true win, win. With your new air conditioner and/or furnace, we will go the extra mile to give you up to 5 years parts and labor warranty against any future repair bills.

Certain restrictions apply. Pricing is subject to change without notice. Discounts not valid with any other offers or on previous purchases. See dealer for details. 24335

East Ender Christie Brinkley is also featured in Vanity Fair this month, in all her Sports Illustrated 1978 swimsuit glory. The iconic swimsuit issue turns 50 this year and to make the occasion, SI is rumored to have done photo shoots with a few of its most popular past cover starlets, including Brinkley. She famously appeared on three consecutive swimsuit covers, from 1979 to 1981. At 59 years old, she continues to model today, and her 15-year-old daughter, Sailor Brinkley Cook, recently signed a modeling contract of her own. Brinkley, a frequent user of the photo sharing mobile app Instagram, recently caught some attention with pictures she shared of her family vacation in Turks and Caicos. The bikini-clad supermodel looked to be a woman half her age. Sag Harbor’s Billy Joel and his 1987 concerts in the Soviet Union are the subject of a new Showtime documentary premiering January 31. His then-wife, Bridgehampton’s Christie Brinkley, and daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, joined him on the trip and are seen in archival footage. It was the first time an American rock ’n’ roll act performed in the USSR since the building of the Berlin Wall. Through old clips and new interviews, the doc explores the trials of the tour and its significance both politically and musically.

The Not Dying House A Property in East Hampton That Promises Eternal Life


ithin the last 10 years, two architectural designers who are married have built dwellings that are meant to be so uncomfortable and tipsy inside that they result in the immortality of their occupants. In these residences, they are constantly trying to keep their balance, exercise their muscles and sharpen their reflexes to such an extent that they will stay young and supple and live forever. One of these dwellings is an apartment complex on the outskirts in Mitaka, Tokyo that was built in 2005. The other is a home in East Hampton, built on an acre of land at 113 Springy Banks Road in 2008. Across the road from Duke Drive and the former Boy’s Camp and a little south of it, this house, built in 36 different bright colors, is visible from the road in the wintertime. It has also been on and off the market at Sotheby’s in recent years, for a price of $4 million.

The East Hampton project is especially remarkable. The floors in all the rooms are made of rippled concrete that flow up and down like the ocean and slide off in odd angles. In the center, at a low spot, there’s a drop down to a kitchen, which, if you are not careful, you will slip down into. There’s a living room, several bedrooms, several bathrooms without doors and some decks. Shiny metal poles go vertically from floor to ceiling to give a resident the ability to catch himself before falling. Anyone entering the house has to sign a waiver that they will not hold anyone responsible for what happens as the result of a fall. No children are permitted in the house. The two people who have designed these projects linked themselves together as the firm of Arakawa+Gins. Shusaku Arakawa was born in Japan but came to America in the 1960s to study with Marcel DuChamp. Madeline Gins is a native Long Islander who got a degree at Barnard in Physics and (Cont’d on next page)

House (Continued from previous page) Eastern philosophy. Arakawa became, at first, a painter living and studying in Brooklyn. Gins became a poet and painter and met him there. They were married shortly after they met, and moved in together to a loft on Houston Street in Manhattan. After that, they worked together on many paintings, including 83 that were exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum Soho under the title “The Mechanism of Meaning.” They then got this idea that they could build residences that would enable you to live forever. You would never die. In 2010, Gins was interviewed by The New York Times. “This mortality thing is bad news,” she said. “Aging can be outlawed. It’s immoral that people have to die.” She and her husband wrote, drew and, when possible, built to promote what they called “Reversible Destiny.” They opened an office and employed people to promote their work. The project in Japan came about when Arakawa+Gins won a competition sponsored by the city of Tokyo to design a series of apartment complexes on 75 acres of landfill on the outskirts of that city. The designers called it “City of Reversible Destiny,” and although the project was never fully completed, numerous residences were constructed in one apartment complex. The units are a collection of boxes and tubes at odd angles to one another that feature all sorts of uncomfortable things, such as light switches in out-of-the-way locations and doors leading out to balconies that were so low you

“This mortality thing is bad news. Aging can be outlawed. It’s immoral that people have to die.” had to stoop down to get through them. The couple explained that it was all designed to give an owner a perpetually “tentative” relationship with their surroundings. Who wouldn’t want to live in a home that could get you to live forever? Around 2000, they got a commission to build such a house in East Hampton, which they called the Bioscleave House—Lifespan Extending Villa. At the website, this project, completed and ready for occupancy in 2008, was described this way: “The house has bumpy floors and walls that meet at odd angles. The sunken kitchen looks more like a child’s play set than a real cooking space. They don’t want you to get comfortable here. Comfort, they believe, equals death.” They quoted Gins. “The house forces people to use their bodies in unexpected ways to maintain equilibrium. [That] stimulates their immune systems.” The listing for sale reads, “Forty years of scientific and philosophical investigation into how best to sustain human life and how to use architecture to help people live exceedingly long lives, has been put to good effect in this

house like no other. It is a life enhancing environment.” Lots of comments from bloggers are on this website. “Absolutely ridiculous. And hideous. You couldn’t pay me $4 million to live there… Methinks it is a conspiracy and the ‘scientists’ work for the Orthopedic Surgeon Society of America…Who wants to spend $4 million for a house where you can’t have a gettogether?...It may be true that the person would never die in that house. Die, yes, but not in THAT house…It’s a concept that just goes right over my head…So wait, WHY are they selling it?” In 2008, according to Gins, the couple lost everything and had to close their office and fire all the employees. They had invested with Bernie Madoff. “He pulled the rug out from under us,” Gins told The New York Times at the time. She also told the Times that her husband just shrugged off things as trivial as money. There was a bigger morality in play. “It’s immoral that people have to die,” she said. The house and apartment complex were designed to result in people living forever. It did not work out that way for Arakawa and Gins. Arakawa died on May 18, 2010 in New York at the age of 73. Madeline Arakawa Gins died last week in New York City, reportedly after losing a battle with cancer on January 8, 2014. They had no children. She was 72.

Protest Hunters & Environmentalists Oppose the Upcoming Deer Cull By Dan Rattiner


n a few weeks, if nothing changes, a group of trained federal sharpshooters will come to the East End carrying high-powered rifles with silencers, leave out bait, climb trees at night, and when white-tailed deer appear to nibble at the bait, using their night vision goggles to see them in their sites and pick them off, one by one. The goal is to kill 3,000 deer during six weeks extending into February and March. There have been suggestions that there could be a repeat performance next year, and then again the year after. At that point, they should have culled as much as half the herd. But there was a big protest and march this past Saturday, January 18. The protesters had a permit to assemble on the green in front of the Hook Mill, just 200 yards from the center of downtown East Hampton at 1 p.m. They could demonstrate there, walk in a peaceful line, carrying their signs up North Main Street to the traffic light, then on the sidewalk up Newtown Lane to assemble in Herrick Park where speeches would be made. Police would guide them along the way. It might tie things up on a Saturday. But then, it was winter, so it would not be a catastrophe. What the hell. I really don’t know where I stand on this issue. I blow hot and cold about it. On the one hand, deer are really cute, they are part of nature and are quite beautiful, and who are we humans to be meddling with that?

On the other hand, the deer crash into cars, eat the landscaping vegetation and, most recently, as their numbers have increased, crops, thereby impacting the ability of the farmers to bring in the harvest. They also are carriers of ticks that cause crippling Lyme disease in humans—although what their role is in that is the subject of debate. Most people think something should be done about the deer. Should we kill them, set out food for them, dart them to sterilize them, put them to sleep and truck them to the Adirondacks, use only bows and arrows on them, use poison darts, slaughter them for their meat to feed the hungry, or bring in lions to eat them? This last was my recommendation, out of frustration, two weeks ago when I proposed in a hoax in this newspaper that lions come here from South Africa and be released. If you believed that, I can tell you it’s safe to come out now. They’re gone. As for the sharpshooters coming, a petition was circulated among the townspeople of the East End, asking signers to oppose the kill. More than 10,000 people did. And so, I headed out to the protest around 12:30 p.m. When I arrived at the site, only 20 people or so were there. In 20 minutes, however, 100 more people carrying signs walked over to the grass in front of Hook Mill. By a quarter past one, another 100 arrived. And more were still coming. I wandered around, taking pictures. Signs read HUNTERS ARE HERE TO STAY, SAY NO TO

THE USDA DEER CULL, IT’S MAN’S FAULT and KILL, KILL, KILL, NO, NO, NO. One woman held a sign that read ALL BEINGS TREMBLE BEFORE VIOLANCE. ALL FEAR DEATH. ALL LOVE LIFE. BUDDHA. Several people brought boards and magic markers and were industriously making signs right on the front steps of the mill. One sign read WHAT’S NEXT? MUTE SWANS? Several people were watching this. One said “WHAT’S NEXT: PIPING PLOVERS?” I also saw a man holding up a piece of cardboard reading WILL WORK FOR FOOD. Another sign had a picture of a deer on it and the words WILL YOU KILL MY PARENTS? LION. Huh? It might have been a reference to my story. Indeed, several people came over to tell me how they had enjoyed that hoax. People were walking around chatting as if at a party. They talked about deer. They talked about Lyme disease, their children, divorce, high taxes. “This is like the ’60s,” someone said, referring to all the demonstrations back then. Well, this was the Hamptons, not the ’60s. People from all walks of life were here. It was the first time I’d seen hunters protesting together with naturalists. People with dogs, people with 6-year-olds carrying signs in crayon, locals with caps, women in expensive winter coats, environmentalists—Larry Penny, the longtime but now retired East Hampton environmental officer, was there. Virginia Frati from the Wildlife Rescue (Continued on next page)

Protest (Continued from previous page) Center of the Hamptons was there. Around 1:30 p.m., a man wearing a MONTAUK peaked cap spoke through a bullhorn to invite everyone to gather around him 50 yards in front of the mill. “We’re about to begin,” he said. This was Bill Crain, head of the East Hampton Group for Wildlife. “Gather around. I’m going to ask a few people to speak. Then, we’re going to walk single file through town. I want to go through several chants. Repeat after me. WHAT DO YOU WANT, STOP THE CULL, WHEN DO YOU WANT IT, NOW.” The crowd obliged. He had them do it again and again. Here was another chant they practiced: “HEY, HEY, WHAT DO YOU SAY, TAKE THOSE KILLERS AND SEND THEM AWAY.” The first chant was a variation on an earlier

one from the Civil Rights Movement. The second was a variation on a football chant led by high school cheerleaders that ends SEND THEM BACK THE OTHER WAY. It was later used in the civil rights era as a reference to LBJ’s sending soldiers to Vietnam. “HEY, HEY LBJ, HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU KILL TODAY?” Crain invited several people to speak. One was Dell Cullum, a nature photographer who in protest had withdrawn photos he had given to an East Hampton Village nature display. Another was entertainment entrepreneur Ron Delsener, who made a speech that fired up the crowd, telling them that the total cost of the sharpshooters would be $400,000 of taxpayer money. “They’ll be staying here in our hotels and inns with their rifles and ammunition and

In the park, past police officers and police cars waiting for us, we gathered in one enormous group and faced the street and school. other weapons.” He also said “Let the hunters do their jobs, this is not Great Neck,” and he said, “what do we do with an overpopulation of humans on the planet at 7 billion, shoot them?” He also had bad things to say about Councilman Dominick Stanzione, who he said “never consulted any of us,” and about the Mayor of East Hampton Paul Rickenbach. And then, this huge crowd carrying signs and shouting was off in a great surge toward town. “How many do you think are here?” someone asked me. “I think maybe 300,” I said. Three hundred soon became the accepted size of the crowd as far as the media was concerned. Many photographers stood along the way, photographing the crowd arriving in the center of town, but I decided to walk with Cullum, Delsener, Crain and others at the front, to see what else they had to say. “Do you know where the mayor lives?” Delsener asked me. “Is it near the center of town?” “Yes,” I told him. “We should lead the demonstration right past his house.” That, I thought, was a terrible idea. Also, they didn’t have a permit to do that. But I didn’t say anything. “Dan knows where he lives,” Delsener told Crain. We were now on the sidewalk turning onto Newtown Lane on the east side. I could see the line of demonstrators was so long walking twoby-two that there were still people back at the Hook Mill waiting to leave. On Newtown Lane, store clerks and merchants came out of their stores to see what all the ruckus was about. At this point, Delsener and the others had dropped back into the crowd. “Dan, look up here,” a photographer said. I smiled. He shot. Now I was leading the demonstration. Oh, what the hell. “How far do we go up Newtown Lane?” somebody asked. “I’m just heading up the Lane to go home,” somebody else said. I thought about it. “We go up and cross the street at the school crosswalk,” I said. “Now?” “No, further up. By the school. I’ll give the signal.” And so, when we got there, I held my left hand out and 300 demonstrators followed me into the park. In the park, past police officers and police cars waiting for us, we gathered in one enormous group and faced the street and the school across the way. More speeches were made. More chanting happened. And finally, after another half an hour, the crowd began to break up and melt away and I started on home, safe with my secret of where the mayor lived. Can anyone tell me if they went to the mayor’s house?

Eavesdropping Watching a Passenger on the Hampton Jitney Read “Dan’s Papers” By Dan Rattiner


was sitting in an aisle seat on the Hampton Jitney, headed from Southampton to New York, when I got a rare opportunity to see if people are still reading my stuff after all these years. In the row ahead of me, but across the aisle, there was an attractive middle-aged woman with long blond hair about to read a copy of Dan’s Papers. I could look over her shoulder. She looked thoughtfully at the oil painting on the front page for a few moments, taking in Doug Zider’s beautiful romantic scene of sunlight streaming sideways through the autumn foliage by a pond in Bridgehampton, then turned the page to get inside. A two-hour, quiet bus trip lay in front of us. Would she read the three stories I had in the issue when she got to them? This would be a test. One at a time, she looked at the half a dozen full-page ads in the front of the paper. Then she got to the contents page. She glanced at it briefly. She moved on. Next came the South O’ the Highway column, which has short items about the famous and infamous who make this place home. She read one item, then another and another. She was now halfway down the page, but then that was it. She turned the page. This next page was where we have the Hamptons Subway Newsletter, a half page about the goings on down in the subway system that sits under the Hamptons. Of course, we don’t have a subway system. But if we did, this would be its newsletter. I have written this column for the paper every week for four years. She didn’t read it. Not interested. I tightened up briefly when I saw her do that. But then, she didn’t read what was on the next page either, which was the Police Blotter. Now she came to another page of South O’

the Highway items, about six of them, and she glanced long enough to read one item, but that was it. What’s the rush, lady? We work so hard. I tried to get a better look at this woman. It was hard to do, though, looking over her shoulder. I saw nail polish. Some metal bracelets. At this point, she arrived at the grand first page of the lead story in the book, a long, heavily researched account of an English colonist in East Hampton in the 17th century who took the long journey to London to appear before Parliament protesting the King’s draconian Whale Oil Tax. It was a full 50 years before the outbreak of the American Revolution. Samuel “Fish Hook” Mulford was perhaps eastern Long Island’s greatest patriot. Would she read it? Nope. This really got me going. I had worked for DAYS on this piece. I’d spent time in the library. What was the matter? Too long? In this day and age, people don’t often read 2,000-word stories. Maybe she was one of those people. Well, I can’t help it if people are just rush, rush, rush. Next she was looking at the headline of my next article. The headline read VIAGRA. This was the story about the price of this drug, how it had gone up five-fold in the last five years, a testament to the rising cost of medical care. There would be other outcomes, too. It could, I’d said, affect the growth of the American population, for example. That thought was in the subhead just below the headline. SHE DIDN’T READ IT. SHE TURNED THE PAGE. What WAS this woman going to read in Dan’s Papers? Why had she picked it up, anyway, if she wasn’t going to read it. Just to flip through it? Just to get a snippet of a gossip item about a celebrity? She could get that in The New York Post, which is often available on the bus. She was not reading The New York Post. She came upon a very thoughtful story Brendan

J. O’Reilly had written about the upcoming election contest for County Legislator, and she turned the page. She came upon Kelly Laffey’s story, a really good story, about the things you can do if your high school son or daughter is a remarkable athlete and you want to help him or her get into a good college, and she turned the page. She turned the page on a layout full of photographs of good-looking Hamptons partygoers. She turned the page on Sally Flynn’s account of a ghostly Halloween Shelter Island ferryboat that’s here today and gone tomorrow. Come on, this was the Halloween Issue. And she turned the page on a review written by Dan Koontz of his experience at the Cuddy restaurant in Sag Harbor. She even turned the page on the next piece, a scathing article I wrote, dashed off in anger, actually, saying that I thought the President of the United State should hold accountable the legislators who held our country hostage for 16 days in October. Doesn’t this woman care about… And then she stopped. She’d found it. She spent the next five minutes reading a two-page feature about cooking with fennel, written by Silvia Lehrer, spent five minutes reading Jeanelle Myer’s article about leaf blowers and Stacy Dermont’s article on picking apples for applesauce, apple butter and hard cider. And then she put the paper down, put her seat back, and with the bus rocking rhythmically and gently as it moved along, fell asleep. I didn’t see her again until she got up to get off at 59th Street. She was very fashionably dressed, wore high-heeled shoes, had all sorts of colorful shopping bags from Hamptons boutiques in the overhead bin, and she put on big, gloppy dark sunglasses. The hell with her.

Grumman Memorial Park Makeover Lifts Off By nicholas chowske


popular East End landmark is due for a facelift, and with a bit of help from the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, the Town of Riverhead will be restoring the Grumman Memorial Park in Calverton to its original splendor. “The paint on the aircraft has begun to peel—on the nose of the F-14 and on some of the fiberglass wingtips of the other plane,” says Riverhead Town Engineer Ken Testa, who is heading up the project. “Not being in the business of painting planes, we reached out for some help and we got in contact with the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City.” The Town of Riverhead assumed responsibility for maintaining the park several years ago, as was the original agreement with the park’s creator, East End Aircraft LI Corporation. “The Town entered into an agreement, when the park was developed, that after a certain number of years the maintenance and operation of the site would transfer to the Town of Riverhead,” Testa says. “We maintain the grounds and keep the bricks clean, but as for the planes themselves, we really need some technical assistance.” The park was built in 2000 and displays the F-14A Tomcat Fighter, Gunfighter 134, high up on a pedestal, as well as an A-6 Intruder. The Tomcat was built and tested at the Grumman Flight Test Facility in Calverton, now the Calverton Executive Park, which is adjacent to

the park, and served the United States Air Force from 1979 until 1998. “We were approached by the town to see if we could put together a group of volunteers,” says Andrew Parton, Executive Director of the Cradle of Aviation Museum. “We have a group of about 100 volunteers who are former aerospace workers from Grumman and Republic and commercial aviation that volunteer at the museum to do restoration work,” he says. “We’re trying to put together a team of volunteers to come out and help restore the aircraft out at the park, and deal with some of the issues of protecting them moving forward.” “The director of the museum and the head curator came out to look at the planes, and they determined that they needed a good powerwashing, and wherever the paint is peeling needs to be scraped and repainted,” Testa says. “They told us they would give us a list of materials and that when we procure them, they would pick a weekend and bring out a team of volunteers that would go about, powerwashing, cleaning and repainting the planes.” he says. “The town, of course, quickly accepted their offer.” “We have a restoration crew here that builds and restores the aircraft for the museum, so that’s the group that we’re going to be tapping from a resource standpoint,” Parton says. “Our curatorial staff is pretty experienced in restoring and maintaining aircraft. We have some planes at the museum that sit outside, so we know what you have to do to make sure

“The paint on the aircraft has begun to peel—on the nose of the F-14 and on some of the fiberglass wingtips of the other plane.” you can take care of them and leave them out there.” The planes were not initially designed to be stored outside in the elements, so special maintenance is required to keep them in good shape. “The issue in the Northeast for storing aircraft outside is you’re fighting a neverending battle, with weather and birds and things like that, that do damage,” Parton says. “Some of it is just kind of a clean-up. Some of the paint is peeling, so that needs to be scraped off, and we’ll use different paint that will better withstand the weather,” he said. “We’ll do some power-washing to take out all of the residue from birds that have decided to set up camp in and around the different parts of the planes.” “It’s a hard thing to do,” Parton adds, “but we’re going to try to put together a group of people and hopefully get out there in the fall and knock this off over a weekend.” Grumman Memorial Park is located on Route 25 in Calverton, just west of the intersection of Routes 25 and 25A. The park is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit

East Enders Rush New Farmers Market in Bridgehampton

Topping Rose House market participants clockwise from left: Wölffer Estate’s Phil Dobler, Lulu Bouvier of Lulu Knits!, East Hampton Gourmet’s crispbreads and coconut bliss, Lorna Cook of Lorna’s Nuts & Goodies, Topping Rose House Chef de Cuisine Ty Kotz and Sous Chef John Rodrigues, Lusia Masliah of Gula Gula Empanadas

By stacy dermont


ho says winter is a slow season on the East End? T om Colicchio’s Topping Rose House (TRH) in Bridgehampton held its first monthly farmers market on Saturday, January 18. It opened with some fanfare (balloons, juggling, wine) and it featured more vendors—31—in one place than most of the East End’s farmers markets, but the most remarkable aspect of the spectacle was— boom!—the attendance. No one knew quite what to expect for this first one, but no one could have predicted this scene. Scheduled to run from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., TRH’s Director of Food & Beverage Landy Labadie told me that people began streaming in at 10:45 a.m. But, then again, maybe our forefathers could have predicted this very scene. Bridgehampton has long been the breadbasket of the South Fork. In colonial times its main crops were grains, grown in that rich Bridgehampton loam. When shipping was king, Bridgehampton was a leading supplier of meat and of butchery. Legend has it that this is how Bridgehampton came to be called “Bull’s Head”—the local butchery industry that supplied meat for stocking ships left many heads and other bits behind. Hence the “Bull’s Head Inn,” a former name of the Topping Rose House. More likely “bull’s head” referred to the pattern that the crossroads made at the intersection where the inn and the Bull’s Head Tavern were. The tavern site is currently an empty lot soon to be under construction. During the American Revolution, surrounding villages’ troops mustered on Bridgehampton’s green, the Triangular Commons. This crossroads is still a convenient place to gather today. The growing popularity of our farmers markets may be another revolution. By the time I arrived at noon, the staff and vendors were already happily overwhelmed. By 12:30 p.m. it was standing-room-only in

both function rooms—The Studio, a modern, rectangular room with floor-to-ceiling windows, and The Barn, a study in Hamptons rustic chic. Juggler and fire-eater Keith Leaf had to juggle very carefully so as not to “club” anyone. I asked him if he’d be setting anything on fire. He said, “Not today.” By 12:45 p.m. some of the vendors were running out of goods. Lusia Masliah’s Gula Gula Empanadas stand was a particular favorite with the crowds for a grab-and-go lunch. Luckily, when Maslia sold out of her fresh, warm empanadas, she still had vacuum packs of her frozen ones for sale. They’re exactly the same empanadas, but the frozen ones have the distinct advantage that I can’t eat them all in the car on the drive home! Maslia gave me a sample of her new flavor. It was very tasty, with caramelized onion and sage—but I never found out what it was called. The crowd intervened and we were permanently separated by happy shoppers. Lorna Cook of Lorna’s Nuts & Goodies told me she’s recreated the Milk Pail’s famous trail mix, Milk Pail Trail, for the popular “apple store” on the other side of Bridgehampton. She has her other products for sale there, too, and she “can’t keep them on the shelves.” She was delighted to be at this market, noting that she thrives on interacting with and listening to her customers. I hoped to purchase local produce like beets, carrots, potatoes and maybe some of the hardier brassicas. No luck. Labadie told me he believes that over time more and more East End farmers will choose to grow winter crops and build greenhouses. That can’t happen too soon. Rumor has it that Dale Haubrich and Bette Lacina (Dale & Bette’s Farm), two of the East End’s oldest organic farmers, may participate in this market when they return from their winter farm in Arizona. Most of the inaugural vendors were not farmers but local food producers. There were

two Long Island salt farmers (Amagansett Sea Salt and Apropo Sea Salt), Holly Browder from Browder’s Birds on the North Fork, Mecox Bay Dairy’s John Ludlow cutting the stinky cheese, and sweethearts Jane Maguire and John Quigley from the Long Island Mushroom Company. Three East End wineries—Borghese, Lieb Cellars and Wölffer Estate—offered samples. Labadie told me that many people still don’t realize that the inn’s restaurant is open to the public for breakfast, lunch and dinner all week. Now they know—many people stayed to brunch at TRH. Who could blame them? The menu included Pastry Chef Cassandra Shupp’s brioche doughnuts, as well as Eggs Benedict and maple sage pork sausage! Chef de Cuisine Ty Kotz and some of his staff came up to check out the market. The kitchen is connected to these event spaces by a nifty tunnel. Upon meeting Sous Chef John Rodrigues, I asked if it was a requirement that all male kitchen staffers be handsome. Kotz pointed to his own goatee and said, “No, they just have to have the same beard.” Yes, this new farmers market will be open year-round, every third Saturday of the month. Soon they’ll move operations outdoors to a tent alongside their one-acre garden. Their next market will be held on Sat., Feb. 15, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All vendors’ participation fees are being donated to the restoration of the Nathaniel Rogers House on Ocean Road in Bridgehampton, that other Greek Revival mansion at Bridgehampton’s historic crossroads. When restoration is complete, it will be occupied by the Bridgehampton Historical Society’s offices and museum. Another off-season farmers market will open in Riverhead on Saturday, Feb. 1. Holly Browder was instrumental in birthing this new market in the old Swezey’s Building at 117 Main Street. It will be open every Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. through May 17, when several of the existing outdoor markets re-open.

I Deal By brendan regan


he beach club where I’ve worked for the last 12 summers is centered on a one-road thin, one-mile long isthmus dense with wealth in Water Mill. Beautiful both big and quaint oceanfront houses line the south side for a half mile in either direction, with marsh and Mecox Bay lining the north. The club used to be a short, squat, large deck with old wood lockers and blue swinging doors, and an old cottage next to it. Now it’s a big building with fancy cedar walls and lockers, and a big deck and new cottage next to it. The club and the other isthmus properties have a single tall line of a dune on the oceanside, with long stairs down to the beach. The isthmus’s beach is short, maybe 40 yards from the dune to the ocean. If you walk east a half mile from the club’s beach, you get to “The Cut.” “The Cut” is the periodically naturally and more often synthetically opened waterway between Mecox Bay and the ocean. Opening it’s a way to stir up the bay and flush out bad bay goo for the benefit of the bay life... it makes the crabs generally scared and happy and the swans furious. A crane or storm opens a path for the bay to dump bay badness during low tide, and refill with ocean goodness at high tide. All that weird bay stuff, including many frightened crabs, go out into the ocean, where it brings in all kinds of ocean fish who want to eat that bad bay goodness. My goal since 2008 was to catch and eat one of these ocean fish. I guard lives, so i have the liberty of and inclination toward fishing as often as possible. I’ve been on the Viking, and on friends boats, and i’ve even hooked some sea robins and blues and skates from the beach with the club’s

Brendan Regan is originally from Rockville Centre. His parents rented in Sagaponack in the ’80s, then bought land and built a place in 1990. Regan spent every summer out East, ocean lifeguarding until he started staying with artists in Sag Harbor. He has also summered in Hampton Bays and Water Mill.

surfcaster, but I’m no fisherman. I’m only semifluent in fishermanese, and I’ve never caught something solo, cleaned it, and eaten it. I’ve had bad luck and poor skills for the last 5 summers. Snapped a couple lines, missed some opportunities... I’ve got more excuses if you want them. Work ended here in October 2012 I moved to San Diego. A week later Hurricane Sandy moved the beach club and it’s cottage, in pieces, violently, across the street. The Cut wasn’t enough for the ocean that day. So it ate the large, sandy beach on the west side of the cut, and swept up the whole beach for the next quarter mile along the retaining wall, then broke through the dune at the end of the wall... ie: the beach club, and made another cut. The crabs were elated and terrified. The swans didn’t seem to care. At home they salvaged what they could and tore up the rest, and started anew. I was training to become a lifeguard out west and watched jealously through Facebook photos and news articles as the club rebuilt. San Diego was fun, but I think there’s something about how the sunrise and set hits the ocean in reverse that makes everything there a little different. And I still wanted to catch a fish. I could have tried to catch one in San Diego, but i had already made a pyrrhic investment on Long Island. Plus, lifeguarding out there wouldn’t start until June, and they were rebuilding the beach club over here already. So I flew back April 1 and started working immediately. The first three weeks consisted only of building the club’s 4000 square foot mahogany deck. I definitely lost a couple a decades of knee life bending banana boards, pre-drilling, and keeping the dang spacing near perfect. Knee pads are baloney. I worked with some seriously salt of the earth carpenters. Lots of fishing talk with these guys. The boats and fish and rods and reels and all the kinds of lures and bait and everything else. So many cool words and techniques, too much to remember, but enough of a reminder of my fish vow. Every day it (Continued on next page)

Tippy, Farewell My Wee Beastie They say that losing a pet is like losing a child. Naturally, the loss of a pet can’t really compare to the loss of a child. Still, losing a cherished pet can be very painful and has its own little grieving process. A few days ago, we lost our cairn terrier, Tippy. She lived to be 19 years old and was surrounded by love her whole life. She looked just like the world’s most famous cairn terrier, Toto, from The Wizard of Oz. Small and scruffy, but oh, those big brown eyes.

Some people say Tippy was spoiled, just because she trained her people to hold an umbrella for her whenever she went to go potty in the rain. Like all dogs, Tippy was as much an individual as a person. She was very clever, and even downright sneaky at times. I recall taking my kids to school in our minivan, dropping them off and continuing on to the first chore of the day, which was frequently grocery shopping. About half-way between the school and the grocery store, just far enough that she realized

This is the Hamptons!

GUEST (Continued from previous page) was mahogany and fishing, and the almost 180 degrees of ocean from the elevated platform upon which we were building deck. I had to catch a fish. Had to. We finished building the club in early June. I drove up 27 and the ocean parkway one night to meet my Uncle Jimmy in Long Beach, and see the Rush concert at Jones Beach. I left that night with his old, ratty 9 foot surf caster and a popper that was “friggin nuts” and would definitely work. There were a couple schools of fish out a few hundred yards in late june, too far to cast to. Finally, in mid July, they were in real close. The unusually chilly July air sat pretty still under some high, thick clouds. I saw the schools boiling out there around noon. I ran up the beach, up the long stairs, around the club and under the deck, grabbed the surfcaster and ran back, I got to the edge of the shore-breakers, and cast. Nope. I just couldn’t cast anywhere near that far. I tried a dozen more times. The beach was almost completely empty, except for a few construction guys at different houses, and a guy in an orange shirt, jeans, and boots sitting on the beach a couple houses east, all watching the schools. I walked up to the lifeguard stand, and dragged the 11 foot rescue board into the waves, got past the breakers, and hopped on. I felt like I probably looked stupid and thought the orange shirt guy probably thought so too. I paddled out one-handed, grasping the surfcaster with the other, and drifted to a stop about 100 yards out. The very light north wind left the water cold and almost glassy. 20 yards

ahead of me boiled underwater the dark red school, wound into a squished ball, splashing on the surface. . Every now and then or so a medium to large sized bluefish would pop a foot out of the water, looking surprised and hungry, then air swim into the surface, leave a football sized splash, and blast down into the darkness. I sat up on the board and took a few nervous kicks back, getting ready to cast. You don’t want to get too close to that. When frenzied those things will bite your toes off. A couple years ago there was a surfer and lifeguard massacre across Southampton. Over the series of a few days in late july, a half dozen different ocean aficionados got chunks of ankle and foot removed by prehistoric choppers. Sunburned, skinny, disappointed looking, giant foot-cast wearing dudes on crutches were everywhere. I leaned back on the buoyant board and cast well past the school twice. Nothing. On the third cast i got a big hit, and i was ready for it. Sort of. I was holding the rod tight enough but the thing was pulling me right into the school. Not good. I laid down, let out some line and one-arm-back-paddled and worked the fish around the school. He started swimming away from the school. The fight was on. He tugged, I reeled. I paddled with and against him and reeled and let out line and got towed and pulled and paddled and paddled and finally he was weak, and I towed him back to shore. He was quite diffident. I got about chest deep

and dragged the bright, big blue in through the breakers. He got rolled twice, and then lay there flopping in the sand. “Lifegad tooda rescue!” I looked behind me and the ostensibly mustachioed orange-shirt guy was right there, on his feet and psyched. The construction guys who were watching were in various stages of head shaking and smiling, like someone told a dirty joke in front of kids. Orange shirt guy spouted, “Go gettim byda tail!” I obeyed. This guy knew his stuff and knew i didn’t. “Whoa man dat was awesome. Thanks fuh doinat, i been fishin fora lawng time, an i aint neva seenat!” “Thanks man. What do i do?” “Dats good eatin. Puttim on Ice, gutim, filletim, an cook it onna webba in some tin foil. Friggin awesome. I gotta go back to work, friggin awesome man.” I put the fish on ice and a little later did the best I could to fillet it. I put both of the fillets in the club’s fridge, one marinating in some of Tennis Pro’s orange juice (sorry, Frank) and the other in Italian Dressing with crushed pretzel. I put them on the giant club gas grill in tin foil and steamed them up good, and took them off when i thought they were ready. I enjoyed the ocean’s gift on the club’s new teak tables with club staff and a couple members. The fillets were delicious, but I’m happy to try again and do better.

This Week’s Cover Artist: Rita Sklar By MARION WOLBERG-WEISS

This week’s cover by Rita Sklar is especially striking, not only because of its beauty but due to its mixture of literal representation and abstract representation. The image “Fishing” features an osprey—an endangered species, one of the many animals at risk that Sklar has used as a subject in her art. A particular element of the image is its mythic quality, a trait that appears in some of Sklar’s various works, subtle as it is. Her previous images, including an elephant and her offspring, convey an enduring aspect that approaches mysticism. The cover also signifies flight—another motif of her work, seen in such pieces as her figures running in the street (notably the San Francisco Bay area) and a waving flag that is juxtaposed on a map. What is the main point you’re trying to convey in your work about species at risk? I want to send an urgent warning about the health of our environment and animals that are a loss to us. What’s the story about the Osprey? The Osprey was almost extinct a few years

It’s “Schmoozuary” in the Hamptons! By stacy dermont

If you’ve ever been to the Hamptons, you know that eating and name-dropping can easily fill your days and nights in the high season. Well, my fair weather friends, I’m here to tell you that these dizzying rounds of fabulousness are every bit as happenin’ in the way-

off season. Here are some snippets of a week in the life of a Hamptons editor and food columnist: Sunday I “had to” head to the Sag Harbor Baking Company to shoot some photos for an upcoming article by Joan Baum. It’s not hard to imagine why I volunteered for this detail. Artisanal breads, croissants…Of course I stopped at Cavaniola’s Cheese Shop on the way home for a hunk of my favorite French Brie. After depositing my goodies I was off to the Lowell House for an estate sale. I picked up some antique kitchenalia and a book of poetry with a handwritten inscription from Tony Harrison to Robert Lowell—something about a “restraining shadow.” Later my husband and I were off to the Serve Sag Harbor fundraiser at the Corner Bar hosted by April Gornik. We can walk home from the Corner Bar... Monday, Husband and I went to the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport to do a review for Dan’s Papers. We were joined by Dan’s Web

Editor Brendan J. O’Reilly and his fiancée Allison Bourquin. You can read all about this adventure in next week’s magazine. Of note: Get the Chef’s Whim Flatbread! Tuesday night we closed the paper and I ordered in my usual from The Princess Diner in Southampton: a Greek Salad Wrap with the vegetable of the day. It’s not haute cuisine, it’s the healthiest thing I’ve figured out to get me through the night. Wednesday found me at Almond in Bridgehampton for one of their great Artist Dinners. This one featured Christine Sciulli, whose mind-bending sculpture is currently on display in the Parrish Art Museum’s “Artists Choose Artists 2013.” In addition to hearing about working artists’ dreams and visions in their own words, the artists work with Chef Jason Weiner (yes, he’s Anthony Weiner’s brother) to develop the evening’s menu. Sciulli’s featured Squid Ink Cavatelli. The last artist dinner we went to—performance artist Cynthia Hopkins’s—featured her choice of a rustic Hungarian Goulash, which Chef Weiner followed with jelly donuts in celebration of Hannukah. Fun. Thursday included lunch at Le Chef in Southampton and dinner at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack. A very “full” day. Lunch was with my fabu friend, model-cum-designer Maria Scotto. I got to see the latest photos of her four-month-old granddaughter—she’s looking more and more like her grandma, the lucky girl! Townline is where my husband and I end up

every Thursday in the off-season—for Trivia Night. Thankfully the food has been good for the last couple of weeks. Perhaps Executive Chef Joe Realmuto had a refresher with his staff in the New Year. There’s a difference between barbequing and incineration, and liquid smoke is NOT a condiment. Friday Marc Zowine colored and trimmed my mane back to the “power hair” he transformed it into a couple of years ago. He took it from cave girl to haute hippie—you can see the before and after shots on We chatted about fashion, his buddy Michael Kors and about how far too many women in Milan sport “menopause magenta” hair, but mostly we talked food. Marc was aglow from his recent tour of Hans Van de Bovenkamp’s studio. He admired his work and Van de Bovenkamp gave Marc two chicken eggs fresh from his coop. He raced home and cooked them up immediately. I think Marc’s buff bod is made up almost entirely of chicken, eggs and fish. Friday night was, of course, for dancing at Bay Street Theatre with the Nancy Atlas Project and keyboardist Danny Kean. On the way there we stopped for the dinner prix fixe at Muse in the Harbor. It’s a go-to for Sag Harborites—such a luxury to be able to walk to “dinner and a show” (and a minor miracle if we can walk back home). Chef Matthew Guiffrida treats us villagers well. Saturday saw the launch of Tom Colicchio’s Topping Rose House’s first-ever farmers market (You can read more about this love fest on page 24) I felt right at home!

Logging onto the Anti-Social Network By MATTHEW APFEL

It’s official: The Space Race between Facebook and Twitter is on. Fueled by its successful IPO, the Twitterati are making a big push into Facebook’s turf, 140 characters at a time. Twitter’s claim: We are faster, simpler, and man those celebrities love us. Facebook’s response: Anything you can do, we can do better, only with photos and videos. The stakes? Millions of viewers and billions in potential ad revenue. (Shhh. Don’t look now, but little old Pinterest is fast approaching in the rearview.) But really, why follow the crowd? Who wants to join a club that lets everyone in? Fortunately, there’s plenty of room in cyberspace. We’re eternally blessed with a neverending supply of “new” social networks…scrappy upstarts trying to emerge from the shadows and find a piece of real estate on the sunny side of the block. I did some digging and came up with some doozies. These are actual social networks just waiting for you to join: Prime Hangout I learned about this site while driving around Los Angeles. Two things stick out. First, they purchased a lot of outdoor billboards using the exact same colors and fonts as Facebook.

Let’s hope they saved some money to hire good lawyers. Second, many of these billboards seem to be located near a California medical marijuana store. Not saying there’s a connection, but still. Cougar Life This is a social network and dating site where older women and young studs can connect for romance, hanky panky and other alimonysquandering activities. I wondered: Why isn’t there a social network for older dudes trying to meet young women? Oh, wait a sec. calls itself “dating for the attractive and successful.” There’s even a testimonial on the home page praising it as a “class organization.” Well all right then! Dogster/Catster Having bad luck on the human social networks? Check out Dogster or Catster. That’s right, these are focused communities where animal lovers can connect and mingle over their mutual love for their pets. No idea what happens if you try to join both. Nextdoor Social networks have typically been digital. Nextdoor is a startup that wants to do things the old fashioned way: by connecting you with the people who actually live on your block or in your neighborhood. Never mind that you can already do this on your own by leaving

your home in the morning and saying hello to those neighbors. These guys have raised over $100 million (!) in funding from some of the top VCs in Silicon Valley. Maybe they’re onto something. Worth checking out. Stache Passions We just completed “Decembeard”—the most shameless mass marketing month of the year— and the folks on Madison Ave. have gotten into the act by encouraging men to grow facial hair for charity. Turns out, Stache Passions is the site where guys already do this. I spent an hour there and didn’t meet any beaded women. Farmers Only This is an interesting one. I’m not sure how you authenticate and prove that you’re actually a farmer. It is also unclear which crops and livestock qualify. But living out on the prairie can be lonely—nothing to do but count the money from government subsidies. So this social network actually makes sense. Line For Heaven When all else fails, and you’ve had no luck meeting anyone on earth, you can always try heaven. This site is basically a prayer version of Amway; you upload a photo and get others to do the same. For each referral and act of kindness (confessions, prayers) you score “karma points” that get you closer to heaven. I don’t know about you, but I’m praying for my own miracle: the return of Breaking Bad.

NEWS BRIEFS Compiled by kelly laffey

Dredging, Beach Replenishment Approved MATTITUCK: Mattiuck Inlet will be dredged and adjacent beaches will be replenished with sand under a project recently approved by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Congressman Tim Bishop announced. The project will address beach erosion east of the inlet while also removing sand buildup west of the inlet’s jetties. Roughly 100,000 cubic yards of sand will be placed east of the inlet. At a cost of $2.2 million, the project is 100% federally funded. Mobilization for the project should begin by January 15, with work starting about January 21. The completion date is February 28. “I want to thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Town of Southold for their hard work and cooperation to make this project a reality,” Bishop said in a statement. “With strong community support, we accomplished this project,” say Doris and Ronald McGreevy, of Mattituck. “Our beaches will be replenished with sand that will again naturally flow eastward along the shore. Keeping nature and man-made structures in harmony is important to our community.”

Hamptons HalfMarathon Named RRCA Championship EAST HAMPTON: The Hamptons Half-Marathon has been chosen as the Road Runners Club of America’s Eastern Regional Championship Race for 2014. The RRCA event series is one of the oldest distance-running traditions in the U.S., dating back to 1958. The goal of the series is to shine a spotlight on well-run, communitybased events, and to promote the sport of running by recognizing top performing runners in the Open, Masters (40+), Grand Masters (50+), and Senior Grand Masters (60+) categories. This year’s half marathon will be held on September 27.

NYS DEC Proposes Killing or Capturing Brothers Seek to Lease Rights for All Mute Swans on Long Island NEW YORK: It sounds like a hoax, but the New York State Department of Conservation is really pitching a plan to eliminate all free-ranging mute swans from Long Island by 2025. The swans, with the scientific name cygnus olor, are very familiar to the residents of the East End, with at least one breeding pair taking up residence at nearly every pond, but according to the DEC the mute swan is an invasive species, brought to North America from Eurasia in the 1800s for their aesthetic value. Mute swans may cause a number of problems, the DEC says, “including aggressive behavior towards people, destruction of submerged aquatic vegetation, displacement of native wildlife species, degradation of water quality, and potential hazards to aviation.” Under the proposal, some swans would be allowed to remain on Long Island in captivity. Statewide the mute swan population was placed at 2,800 in 2002 and is estimated to be 2,200 now. Mute swans are the largest birds in New York, with an average adult weight of 20 to 25 pounds and a wingspan of nearly 7 feet. These white birds are recognizable by their orange bills with black knobs. Mute swans are protected by the New York State Environmental Conservation Law, so swans, as well as their nests and eggs, may not be handled or harmed without authorization from the DEC. The plan is still just a draft. Comments may be submitted in writing through February 21 to NYSDEC Bureau of Wildlife, Swan Management Plan, 625 Broadway, Albany, NY 12233-4754 or emailed to fwwildlf@

WPPB Revamps Programming Lineup SOUTHAMPTON: WPPB 88.3 FM has introduced a new schedule for 2014 that retains all of its locally produced programs while introducing some dynamic public radio shows. “We worked to find what would represent the best of American society, looking to local producers working with local stations that create original programming,” general manager Wally Smith says. The Monday evening schedule adds CounterSpin, at 5:30, which critically examines major news stories and refutes biased and inaccurate coverage. Planetary Radio, at 7, with Bill Nye the Science Guy and guest astronomers, discusses space exploration. Making Contact at 7:30 raises public consciousness of underrepresented perspectives. Late night Mondays, from 11 to midnight, Weekend Radio with Robert Conrad features a mix of classical music cross-over and comedy. BackStory with the American History Guys on Tuesdays from 7 to 8 p.m. connects American history to current events. With Good Reason, Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m., includes interviews on subjects as varied as wine making to the nature of evil. The Dinner Party, Saturdays at 5 p.m., is an hour of culture, food and conversation. “Our popular program hosts, Bonnie Grice, Brian Cosgrove, and Ed German, and our WPPB productions showcasing local events and artists, will continue to be the bedrock of this public radio station,” Smith assures. “The additions we have made complement WPPB’s local strengths in music and cultural programming and will enable us to bring some new voices to our coverage of politics, social issues, literature and current affairs.” Added to the midday schedule five days a week is the news program Here and Now from WBUR Boston, from noon to 1 p.m. With the schedule shake-up, the BCC News Service has been dropped from the lineup. Instead, NPR will provide international news coverage. Smith says WPPB is looking forward to an exciting future, including a planned relocation of offices to atop Southampton Village Hall and a move of the studio to Southampton Center.

Hunting Deer on Private Property

EAST END: Thousands of East End residents received a flier in the mail last week from two brothers requesting to lease rights to hunt deer on their property. The brothers, Chris and Mike Geraghty, of Ridge, say they have 25 years experience bowhunting, and they are seeking long-term leases on farmland or other suitable property. With the deer population being a hot issue at the moment, Chris Geraghty said he thought it a good time to reach out to residents. He initially saturated the South Fork with the mailers, about 9,870 delivered from Southampton to as far east as Amagansett, then he sent another 9,000-plus fliers between Peconic and Orient. Geraghty says deer hunting is not a sport for him—”It’s a lifestyle for me…kind of like who I am.” He adds that he is not a trophy hunter; he eats what he shoots, and “you can’t eat the antlers.” “I live on venison,” he notes. “I’ll shoot as many does as I possibly can, because that’s what will reduce the population.” Geraghty is critical of a plan among East End municipalities to hire U.S. Department of Agriculture sharpshooters to cull the deer population. He says he doesn’t think taxpayer dollars should be used, and asks, “What’s gonna happen when, God forbid, one of those bullets goes through somebody’s house?” However, he says his mailer is not in response to that idea— bowhunting is just what he enjoys. Geraghty says there are a few criteria that must be met to hunt on private property. Hunters may not be within 500 feet of a home, school or any adjacent property where they do not have permission to hunt. Many residents are opposed to culling deer, whether it be by sharpshooters or sportsmen. The East Hampton Group for Wildlife hosted a rally on January 18 to oppose a proposal to cull the East End deer population. Read about on on page 19.

North Fork Story Written in Wine...or Blood By joan baum


he subtitle of Joseph Finora’s appealing debut full-length fiction Red Like Wine (Xlibris)— “The North Fork Harbor Vineyard Murders”—gives away the completed image: “red like “blood,” and there’s plenty of it here—four homicides to be exact. Though the reader may suspect who’s done wrong early on, what isn’t apparent at first is the extent to which the North Fork not only defines setting, but character. Finora, who describes himself as an amateur winemaker and grape grower who lives in Laurel in the heart of North Fork wine country, knows how to differentiate those who share a common past in regional farming and fishing from those who hail from the city. Local farmers, fishermen, service personnel and professionals on the North Fork tend to bond and to adopt a slight insular attitude toward outsiders. The author, a full-time North Fork resident and familiar with such cultural differences, knows how to work them effectively into his murder mystery, appreciating their comic as well as serious turns. His attention to character and setting are his strong suit, though North Fork (and Shelter Island) regulars will likely delight in trying to pinpoint various locales, if not personalities. And they’ll no doubt take pleasure in the turn of events. As one character remarks, “nothing’s happened in North Fork Harbor for about 200 years. I guess they’re making up for it now.” Fitting in for city folk is not always easy even for young, likable, Bronx-born crime reporter Vin[cent] Gusto and his sometimes girlfriend Shanin Blanc.

Freelancing since being downsized from his regular hard-hitting city job in Manhattan, Vin tries to make a go of it, but it’s tough, the economy’s poor and he’s broke. When he unexpectedly receives a call from a travel magazine to do a puff piece on the North Fork, he gladly accepts. But he’s told he must make a North Fork winemaker central to his piece. And so he arranges for an interview and calls his former girlfriend, Shanin, a photographer, to do the story with him. Readers sense the kindling of their former romance, but love must wait. Unbeknownst to Vic, the designated interviewee, Dr. Franisco Lambrusco (a sparkling red!), a reclusive, internationally known Italian winemaker and agricultural scientist and vineyard owner, has just been murdered, stabbed with a lethal injection and dumped into a wine vat, a bunch of grapes shoved into his mouth. Dr. Frank had been secretly working on cultivating a unique kind of grape that may well make the world a better place, especially for the poor—much to the dismay of big time money men who pressure him

to sell out. Vin is pulled off his assignment by an editorial assistant who tells him the story’s dead (the magazine editor has the same last name as someone who will become a prime suspect, but that fact, recalled toward the end, is noted as a mere coincidence, which it is—an odd bit of story plotting). Vin, however, knows how to hustle in a pleasant manner, and he gets another magazine, with national scope, to be interested in his story, which has now become a murder mystery. The local police are not thrilled about a city guy hanging around, but they’re not that pleased with each other. Aside from the lore about viniculture and magazine journalism that inform the narrative, Finora knows his way around police politics, the jockeying for promotion and domain. Though the style is at times predictable, it comes impressively alive in dialogue, particularly when the different investigators clash (the top guy is Sergeant St. Charles, originally from the city [his name may well reference the historic Missouri wineries].

Happy New Year, Hamptonites! We’re winding down the first month of 2014, and there are already some great pop culture happenings that we need to discuss. The Golden Globes aired on Sunday, January 12, and the evening was full of East End connections. Among the nominees were Helena Bonham Carter, for her role as Elizabeth Taylor in Burton & Taylor, which screened at HIFF; Hamptons fan Sofia Vergara for Modern Family; Long Islander Edie Falco and many more. Sagaponack’s Jimmy Fallon was also in attendance. One of the more high-profile films of the evening was Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street, which is based on the life of real-life Hamptonite Jordan Belfort. The film, based on Belfort’s memoir of the same name, chronicles Belfort’s time as a New York stockbroker for a firm that engaged in securities fraud and corruption. While some critics (myself included) found The Wolf of Wall Street to be a tad excessive in the cynical message it was trying to send out, everyone seems to agree that star Leonardo DiCaprio was fantastic. The Hollywood Foreign Press apparently agrees as well; DiCaprio won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture— Musical or Comedy. One movie that wasn’t

John Drew Theater Lab is Born in East Hampton By lee meyer


to network. The chance to have people networking, using their’s really healthy to do out here [on the East End],” he says. “I think we’re really onto something here. I think that some of the choices we’ve got programmed are very interesting. There are some younger, emerging artists who are building their strengths [through JDTLab]. I like to see artists in their 20s, 30s; we also have veterans, of course. We’re lucky in that having done a number of plays

uild Hall has announced the John Drew Theater Lab (JDTLab), a new workshop series designed to give East End performing artists an opportunity to develop their work in an exploratory, developmental environment. Featuring theater, dance, music and more, works developed by JDTLab will be performed on select Tuesdays through May at the John Drew Theater. The series began on January 21 with a staged reading of Turing Test, a new play by Dominick DeGaetano. Guild Hall artistic director Josh Gladstone is very excited about this unique initiative and can’t wait to see what develops. “The John Drew Theater Lab is an extension of our mission, which is to provide our community with opportunities [in the arts],” Gladstone says. “We’ve done play readings and series, but we wanted to give a little more to the artists than we have in the past.” Although Guild Hall does have opportunities for performers throughout the year, JDTLab is providing artists with an open platform that allows them to work on projects that are special to them. Local actor Sawyer Avery, for instance, is making his directorial debut with JDTLab. “It goes back to the artist getting an opportunity to extend [their skills]. Sawyer has never directed before, and was jonesing to direct,” Gladstone says. “He’s directing Guild Hall, home of the John Drew Theater Lab a staged reading of Neil Simon’s Biloxi Blues. He’s working with an experience co-director on the here, we have actors and directors we know.” While Gladstone notes that these workshop project.” Gladstone also points out that Avery chose the play he wanted to direct, and that they’re not productions are not guaranteed to develop into anything more, he doesn’t rule out the possibility limited to new or original works. Gladstone hopes that JDTLab will help performing of a successful lab getting a full-fledged Guild Hall artists advance their careers. “One of things I’m production. “It’s absolutely conceivable that we really excited about is that they’re going to be able could mount a full production,” Gladstone says. But

if a lab doesn’t turn out to be successful or live up to its potential, that’s okay too. Gladstone believes that the whole purpose of a lab is to experiment, and experiments sometimes include failures. “You can create something wonderful, or it could explode in your face.” The opening season of JDTLab is filled with interesting, unique programming. Turing Test is centered around a mysterious experiment that an unemployed teacher agrees to participate in involving tutoring a student in poetry. On the other end of the spectrum is Biloxi Blues, a classic Neil Simon comedy, which will perform on Tuesday, February 4. On Tuesday, February 18, Joe Brando and Susan Vecsey direct an improv workshop featuring actors enrolled in Manhattan’s Upright Citizen’s Brigade. On Tuesday, April 29, the NeoPolitical Cowgirls take the stage for a performance of Kate Mueth’s latest dance/theater piece Voyeur. On May 6, a new band featuring Lynn Blumenfeld, Randolph Hudson, Kylph Black, Mick Hargreaves and Jim Lawler perform an informal evening of original acoustic songs. There’s no formal process for artists who are interested in getting involved or proposing a JDTLab project. “It’s pretty informal,” Gladstone notes. “They should send me an email (joshgladstone@ at Guild Hall. The slots between now and May are almost all filled, but I’ll be lining these up for the year to come. I think it’s a series that has legs and will establish itself as the go-to place to see work in development.” For more information on the John Drew Theater Lab and a complete lineup of performances, go to Performances are open to the public and free of charge.

Twofer: Gay Times in Venice and Hooker Satire By Joan baum

Although lit-crit folks will recognize the allusion to Thomas Mann’s novella, Death in Venice in Vinton Rafe McCabe’s disturbing, but compelling, and poetic novel, Death in Venice, California (The Permanent Press), it’s T.S. Eliot’s sadly ironic poem Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock that sets the situation and tone (and provides quotations throughout). Let it be said at once, however, that the story—about the degeneration and degradation of a well-off 50s-something famous poet fleeing cold New York to vacation in Southern California, where he comes to acknowledge, act on and invite homosexuality, not to mention indulging in drugs, tattoos and plastic surgery—may not be for everyone (some may even find it pornographic). Let it also be said that the author diverges from Mann’s story, where the acclaimed aging writer Gustav von Aschenbach goes on holiday, becomes obsessed with Tadzio, a 14-year-old golden boy he sees, but never touches or even speaks to, and dies, from cholera—a moving story of imagined Dionysian surfeit and erotic and Platonic love set amid the gorgeous decay of Venice. In McCabe’s capable hands, Jameson Frame’s growing manic fixation on Chase, the most beautiful young man he’s ever seen, a skateboarding male model, hustler and beach bum, becomes, as the author says, a story of “the burning concept of yearning,” jammed “into the craw of a staid, entitled, central character…set “loose unmoored in the modern world.” That world also includes older

women and men, gay and straight, who hang around hotels and beach looking to connect themselves to someone or something. McCabe impressively captures that scene, but especially Frame by way of a slightly stilted style (“The perfection of the man…the golden nature of him”) and long sentences rich in exacting sensuous detail: “He inhaled deeply, the scent of ocean, salt, sweat, filth, and marijuana all mixed in the air and he raised his arms up over his head in a gesture, an exclamation of joy.” It’s the physical world McCabe describes, however, that proves most memorable—the looks, sounds and scents of artificial high life and seductive low life in Venice that still attract lost souls from God knows where to do God knows what, most of whom get sucked into the rhythms of the place. *** Satire, it’s been said, is driven by three Rs— risibility, recognition, reform: through laughter, targets are identified and hoped-for improvement is implied. It’s a difficult genre to bring off well. Some satires overtly savage hypocrisy and destructive behavior; others deliver a more subtle societal critique; and some, like Gulliver’s Travels, seem an odd mix of obvious and arcane (Book III is rarely discussed and the misogyny of Book IV does not seem to evolve from earlier sections). Then there are movies such as The Wolf of Wall Street whose overthe-top take on already extremist behavior offends and whose protagonist, while serving as the portal through which offensive, amoral and criminal acts

are viewed (generating risibility and recognition), ends as unrepentant and corrupt as he began—a cynical conclusion that precludes reform. Saving The Hooker (The Permanent Press) by Michael Adelberg exhibits other problems that can diminish wellintentioned satire—too many targets. These include “misogyny, academic dishonesty, political correctness, drugs, prostitution, sexual abuse,” not to mention talk shows and odd father-son relationships that don’t seem necessary to the plot or theme. Moreover, the narrator, Matthew Hristahalois (why this name?), a likeable character, becomes unsavory as the narrative develops. A post doc at a NYC university he’s watched Pretty Woman too many times and is finally prompted to pursue research that explores the discrepancy between “Hooker with a Heart of Gold” who is saved by a male—a frequent myth he sees in American literature and film—and the real-life conditions of most prostitutes. But once he meets a beautiful, clever hooker who calls herself Julia Roberts, he succumbs to the myth, then exploits it, a game the author himself gets into when he has “Saving the Hooker” be the title and content of a book Matthew writes about his experience. The whole is flawed but fun, with an inviting irreverent tone, on show from the beginning when Matthew introduces himself as on unpaid sabbatical, room and board free, courtesy of the Otisville Correctional Facility named by Forbes as “one of the 10 best places in the United States to go to prison.” Probably true.

Movies... I, Frankenstein Frankenstein is a great story that has proved a challenge to get onto the screen in any faithful way. James Whale’s Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein are classics because they treat Mary Shelley’s idea of a creature re-animated from chunks of dead flesh as a jumping-off point— and because they treat it all as a bit of a joke. I, Frankenstein, like Whale’s films, grabs only the parts of the Frankenstein book that it wants, but then makes the terrible mistake of taking itself very seriously. The result is similar to the recent Superman film: a ridiculous idea that is afraid to recognize its own ridiculousness. Not only that, but I, Frankenstein seems to once and for all acquiesce to the widespread fallacy that the name “Frankenstein” applies to the MONSTER as well as the doctor who created him. Shame! Knights Of Badassdom Although Knights of Badassdom has no apparent connection to Judd Apatow, it certainly partakes of the Apatow school of comedy.

Starring Steve Zahn, the film centers on the practice of LARP—that is, Live Action Role Playing—in which the fantasy role-playing games typically played by rolling dice and moving characters around on game boards are instead acted out on fields by people wearing costumes and trying to speak Elizabethan English. LARP, which is a real thing, is, as you can imagine, pretty ridiculous to watch, and generates a lot of humor in the film. (It also featured prominently in 2008’s Role Models, to similar comic effect.) The twist comes in Knights of Badassdom when the boys, through a bit of accidental black magic, summon a real-life witch who starts eviscerating geeks at every turn. Gimme Shelter Based on a true story, Gimme Shelter follows the young Agnes “Apple” Baily, played by Vanessa Hudgens. Agnes’ mother is a drug addict, and so Apple has grown up in a series of foster homes— her successful father, played by Brendan Frasier, has done nothing to help her. At 16, Apple becomes pregnant and, refusing to give up her child, she finds support in a group home for teen mothers. Whatever the motivations behind the making of this film, it is admirable for recognizing that “choice” sometimes means continuing a pregnancy, and for showcasing the institutions that support young people in making the reproductive decisions that are right for themselves.

Where to find the bargains this weekend

For you, family and friends

Shopping Close to Home


Unable to expend my abounding energy outdoors, this month I’ve taken to redecorating. In keeping with the spirit of making a fresh start in the new year, which began with a commitment to health and wellness, I was sipping my Sencha and glancing around my apartment in dismay. A rather humble abode, the lightest amount of clutter shifts it from cozy to cramped. Craving a sense of Zen, perhaps fueled by the Japanese tea, I decided to take action. After three solid hours of reorganizing and bagging donations, my next stop was Hildreth’s Home Goods where I was delighted to find a gigantic store-wide sale taking place. Everything is 20-75% off and the clearance section is chock-full of goodies like John Robshaw bedding, lanterns and napkin rings. Festive holiday decorations are marked as low as 50% off, for those of you with storage space. It’s a dream of mine to have a guest bedroom ala Hildreth’s—with Yves Delorme sheets and Crabtree and Evelyn products in the bathroom—just so perfectly Southampton! No guest room yet, but I was still able to score a bedside lamp, a new laundry basket, a new shower curtain rod and some seat cushions for my wooden chairs. Just a little sprucing up made such a difference! I highly

WHB Retailer Enters Home Goods, Gifts Business By brendan j. o’reilly


adine Hampton, a fixture in the business district of Westhampton Beach, is readying her newest venture, Hampton House­—a home, gift and lifestyle store attached to her Mustique clothing boutique. Hampton House is the latest addition to the long list of Westhampton Beach businesses Hampton has owned or otherwise had a hand in. “I started on Main Street when I was 16 years old, and that was 34 years ago,” Hampton says. She began by scooping ice cream and later co-owned, with her aunt, Lloyd’s of Long Island, a gourmet food and catering business that was housed where Beach Bakery is now. She then worked for Erik Stewart until the store closed in 2001. She took over the space and opened Koala. “That was

when I dabbled in the clothing business on my own,” she says. In 2004 she expanded by opening Mustique, a year-round shop carrying men’s and women’s clothing, next door. Five years ago she moved both stores into 110 Main Street and kept the identity Mustique. “I took the best of both stores and combined then into one,” she explains. Mustique is connected by a cutout with O’Suzanna. When owner Suzanne Marchisello decided to retire at the end of last year, Hampton in turn decided to open her own store there. She gave it the doubly appropriate name Hampton House. It is her first time selling home goods and gifts, but Hampton is confident. “If there is one thing I know, it’s this customer,” Hampton says. “I’ve grown up with them. They’ve watched me grow up since I was a kid.”


“If there’s one thing I know, it’s this customer. I’ve grown up with them. They’ve watched me grow up since I was a kid.” She also raised a family here. Her son graduated from Westhampton Beach High School in 2008. Her husband, Joseph Milo, is also a business owner in Westhampton Beach. He owns Joe’s American Grill, which opened 35 years ago under the name Milo’s East. To prepare to open the doors of Hampton House to the public in March, Hampton is gutting and renovating the 1,800-square-foot space now. Everything will be new, from the electrical work to the flooring. Over the course of her years in retail, she says, building the business has always been her favorite part.

“My hope and plan is that everything you will ever need a gift for, you will be able to come into that store and get it—baby gift, engagement gift, hostess gift and on and on,” she says. There will be a pets section for dog and cat lovers, a spa area, and more. For the home goods side of the business, she plans to carry the basic necessities that can be hard to find on Main Street, such as sheets and towels. She will also carry private label candles, lotions and soaps with attractive Hampton House branding. Hampton recently returned from a national gift show in Dallas with more ideas to bring to Westhampton Beach.  Mustique is located at 110 Main Street, Westhampton Beach, open year round, seven days a week.

What’s happening in our microclimate.

Events for families, kids and singles.

House Plants for the Reluctant Indoor Gardener House plants in the winter can be a great comfort for a plant lover. Depending on one’s skill, they can thrive and be very beautiful. I, however, am not one of those people. The house plants that “survive” in my house must be tough and tolerant of care from one not devoted to them. I can grow most any plant that needs winter care in a greenhouse, usually trickier that house plant care, but have killed many plants trying to live in my house. If they survive the winter neglect, I can make them thrive outside—but they’d better bulk up for the winter. Given this, I have a collection of house plants that have the necessary requirements for life in my house and some have lived, and even thrived, with me for many years. Cactus and aloes are probably my favorite house plants. There are many varieties with many different shapes and sizes. Their sculptural aspect and easy care makes any of them almost irresistible to me. When I had access to a green house, I had a large collection but now just a small group. Caring for them cannot be easier. They need bright light and minimal water. They do not like humid conditions and do well with usual room temperatures. They like to be somewhat root bound and though they grow slowly, they do noticeably grow, assuring the

caregiver that they are still alive! Sansevieras are another favorite. Commonly called mother-in-law tongues, there are numerous varieties of these also. I have a huge cylindrical one that occupies a whole sliding glass door in my living room. Beside it is a smaller one called baseball bat. These grow very slowly but I was thrilled when they

each bloomed last winter. None of the above plants have ever had a disease or pest problem. If they are not over-watered and are repotted when they have really outgrown their pots, they will be your friends for years. I tried to grow Rex Begonias several time but after killing several of these extraordinarily beautiful plants, I decided I should spare any more of them. I have, however, found success with Rhizomatous Begonias. They store water in rhizomes, allowing them to tolerate irregular watering. They like indirect light, normal room temperatures and can tolerate some neglect. They even bloom under these conditions. With more care, mine would probably become lovely specimens but, to me, they are just fine the way they are.

Mixin’ It Up on the North Fork! Garnish with thin slice of jalapeño

By gianna volpe


136 Front Street, Greenport 631-477-6720

anuary means downtime for most of the forkers who haven’t joined the snowbird flock South in search of greener pastures. So, if you feel like mixing things up a bit this winter, try your hand at recreating an original cocktail from one of your favorite North Fork hotspots. Better yet, stop by and have one made for you! If you’re looking to warm those winter bones, try a Spicy Peach Jalapeño Martini from Noah’s in Greenport or if you want to satisfy your sweet tooth, take a sip of Brianna’s Cinnamon Bun Martini at Four Doors Down in Mattituck. No matter your mood, North Fork bartenders will bring the heat and the sweet to your taste buds.

A Comforting Long Island Cassoulet By silvia lehrer

We have our very own “French Chef” right here on the East End of Long Island. Joan Turturro, with her husband Howard LeShaw, are the proprietors of the Orient Inn, in Orient. I met Joan at a Slow Food Snail dinner where I had the pleasure of tasting her divine duck cassoulet, and those of you who know me know that duck, in any shape or form, is one of my favorite foods. The gently cooked beans marry with layers of crisp nuggets of duck breast confit, sausage, lardons and topping of pancetta and homemade breadcrumbs. No doubt cassoulet is a major cooking challenge but for those who can’t resist, it can be prepared in stages. The concept of cassoulet is that it’s made with almost any meat and bean of your choice. Traditionally, before refrigeration was available, families put up ingredients in stages; they also kept root cellars and dried food for storage. The dish can be prepared with a multitude of different ingredients such as poultry cooked and secured in its fat, dried beans and mushrooms, and all sorts of cured meats. Chef Joan, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute in New York, prepares all the food at the Inn. Visitors to the Orient Inn should be sure not to miss breakfast, and Chef Joan is happy to prepare full dinners for guests with advance notice. Very few Inns can boast a live-in French chef and all that this Inn has to offer.

DUCK CASSOULET This comforting, cold weather bean stew with crisp nuggets of duck confit is manna of the gods! This challenging recipe can be prepared in stages Serves 6 to 8 1 16-ounce package great northern beans 2 Crescent Farm duck breasts confit 12 sprigs fresh thyme sprigs, divided 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1 large head garlic, peeled and cloves left whole 1 medium onion, diced 1/3 pound slab bacon, diced 1 bay leaf 1 quart low-sodium chicken stock 1 quart cold water, more as needed Kosher salt and pepper to taste 6 slices pancetta cut 1/4-inch thick 1 cups toasted breadcrumbs, preferably homemade Herb dried sausage cut into 1/2-inch pieces 3 to 4 tablespoons chopped flat leaf Italian parsley 1. Pick over beans, place in a bowl with cold water to cover well and soak overnight. 2. With a fork, take running stiches into the fat of the duck breasts or poke holes into the skin without going through the meat. Salt breasts on both sides and sprinkle with fresh thyme from 4 sprigs and refrigerate covered overnight. 3. Place olive oil in a small saucepan with the garlic cloves. Cook over low heat very slowly until the garlic becomes pale golden, about 8 minutes, (do not allow garlic to burn). Remove from heat and set aside. 4. Place 3 tablespoons reserved garlic olive oili a large saucepan to cook the beans. Place over medium heat and add chopped onions. Sauté onions

stirring until translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the diced slab bacon and sauté with onions for 4 to 5 minutes. Tie remaining 8 sprigs thyme and bay leaf with kitchen string and add to the pan along with the previously cooked garlic. Add the drained beans, stock and equal amount of cold water or more to cover the beans by a couple of inches. Cover and cook beans about 2 hours or until barely tender. As beans rise to the surface, check doneness. A layer of fit will rise to the surface of the beans, scoop out and discard. 5. To confit the duck breasts, place in a cold nonstick skillet, skin side down over barest heat and let cook to render all its fat, about 45 minutes to an hour. Meat may still be reddish but will finish cooking at a later stage with the beans. Place duck breasts covered with duck fat in a shallow dish where fat will cover. If there’s not enough duck fat (duck fat can also be purchased) add olive oil to cover. Refrigerate, until ready to finish the cassoulet. 6. On day of serving cassoulet, sauté pancetta in 1 tablespoon reserved garlic olive oil until pieces are crispy. With a rubber spatula scrape the pancetta and pan drippings to the breadcrumbs and stir to mix thoroughly. Preheat oven to 375°F. 7. When ready to serve, remove duck breasts from the fat that accumulated and wipe off any excess fat with paper towel. (Reserve duck fat, which is highly prized for preparing potatoes and duck confit.) Cut the breasts into 1/2-inch dice and add to the beans, along with the sausage pieces and any leftover garlic oil, in an oven going casserole and fold into beans. Cover and cook beans for 1 3/4 to 2 hours, or until barely tender. Place a layer of the pancetta/breadcrumb mixture over the top of the beans, sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley and serve.

Beautiful homes sold this week

Bargains on the East End

Surfing Hamptons Real Estate


his week, our esteemed panel of East End Real Estate experts share with us their insights into the future of beachfront homes. What factors do you see influencing the prices of Hamptons beachfront properties in the near future? “Beyond prestige and a good stock market, an increase in resilient retrofitting will drive the market. As more homes are elevated to a Flood Protection Elevation, pursuant to FEMA’s Homeowner’s Guide to Retrofitting, and villages and towns shore up the shorefront with beach nourishment projects, such as that underway in Sagaponack, buyers’ demand for beachfront properties will once again soar.” —Andrew M. Lieb, Esq., MPH, Lieb at Law, P.C. “Beachfront property is supply and demand in my personal opinion. We have only a limited supply of oceanfront and bayfront property. Most people realize if they are fortunate enough and can afford waterfront, water keeps families together. Sound silly…but I’ve found after 15 years of being a real estate broker, it’s where memories are made. It’s amazing how many family members and friends you have when you own a home in the Hamptons. Waterfront properties are all about location, and how much someone falls in love while of course staying close to their budget. We have oceanfront properties

in Westhampton Dunes in the $3 million range, Westhampton Beach between the bridges on the ocean for $8 million, and in Quogue I presently have an awesome listing on the bay, bulk headed, and a boater’s dream­ —that needs a renovation or to build a new house for approximately $3 At home on the beach million, with a right-of-way to the ocean. If you want to go further east then we have some oceanfront homes that recently sold: a Southampton Gin Lane home for $75 million, East Hampton $29 million…What I’m saying is we have lots of diversity. It’s all about location and where you want to be. The area that I specialize in west of the Shinnecock Canal has a huge advantage—being 80 miles from the city—so there’s no fighting the additional East End traffic with easy accessibility. Unless you want to take a helicopter and not deal with traffic, I recommend not going further than Southampton. It’s about fun, not the stress of driving. If you can work from home and telecommute that’s different. I work with a partner from Southampton to Montauk to support all of your needs.” —Lynn November, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Douglas Elliman Real Estate “Beachfront properties have historically been our most sought-after locations. One concern that beachfront purchasers have is erosion. Much to the

credit of our legislators, the newly instituted, Beachfront Erosion Control Taxation District, is addressing this issue. In the Town of Southampton, oceanfront properties will be taxed and the beaches are to be restored. This has already added confidence to the marketplace and is reflected in increasing demand.” —Alan Schnurman, Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker, Saunders & Associates

By janet cohren

“Hamptons Beachfront will always enjoy high demand since it’s limited and therefore precious— e.g. 124 Beach Lane, one of only seven oceanfront properties in Wainscott. Hamptons beachfront will always be very desirable and great properties move fast. There are some ‘duckbill platypus’ properties out there that have been stuck together over the years in a variety of architectural styles, but given the incredible locations and water access will sell fast if priced accurately—most likely to be razed and started over. I would recommend buyers looking to build anew work with a local architect who understands the local laws during the buying process. Personally, I see homes that can demonstrate better dune protection or atop bluffs will see greater price increases moving forward.” —Maz Crotty, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Nest Seekers

Beau Hulse Realty Expands to Quogue Village


of the most sought-after locations,” he continued. The village of Quogue was founded in 1659. Over time, the village evolved from primarily a “summer resort” community to a destination where many families also live year-round. The commute from New York City is much quicker than that of towns

eau Hulse has worked in the constantly evolving world of real estate for nearly three decades. His corporate management experience on the East End, and years spent working with some of the largest brokerages on Long Island, helped pave the way to start up his own company, Beau Hulse Realty Group—a boutique firm located in Southampton Village. Today, with the success of the Southampton location, Beau Hulse and Patricia Hulse, his wife and business partner, are thrilled to expand with a second office in the Village of Quogue. This past Saturday, shortly after the doors of this newly renovated office opened for the first time, I had the pleasure of speaking with Beau. He was beyond thrilled about the future of the company. “I love Quogue village and had been searching for the perfect location for almost two years before finding the ideal spot. The minute this property became available, I jumped on it and signed the lease the very next day. We’re located in the village right next to the post Beau Hulse Realty Group in Quogue office.” he said. “I first became familiar with Quogue after working east of the Shinnecock Canal, and during the summer alongside Suzanne Aasbo when I worked for season, traffic is much less of a concern, making this Prudential Douglas Elliman. She shared everything location extremely appealing. Buying or selling a home—for the first time or the she knew about Quogue, and believe me she knew the history of every home and interesting property 10th—is a very personal journey. Many of Hulse’s in this village. She was a fountain of information,” clients enjoy the experience of working closely with a smaller firm, because it offers a much more intimate Hulse said. “Quogue is a unique place offering upscale experience. With a hand-picked team of licensed properties and exclusive homes. People move brokers specializing in teamwork, market savvy to these small towns for the serenity, peace and effective listening and presentation of properties, tranquility, not to mention the small-town charm of it the Beau Hulse Realty Group team combines special all. Price points tend to be more affordable for some skills that provide clients with the utmost service.
