Literary Giants of the East End

Authorities are attempting to put together a sort of ring road that would encircle eastern Long Island and ease up some of the massive traffic problems that plague this area. It would not be a new road. We have enough of those. It will link existing public transit. Quite a few organizations are cooperating. The major players in this are Hamptons Subway and the Shelter Island Bridge and Tunnel Authority, which intend to merge. With that completed, a link will be made with the North Fork Wine and Limousine Shuttle Service bringing folks from Southold to the Riverhead Aquarium, and a link run by the Lighter Than Air Aircraft Group based on a farm in Aquebogue will fly people from there to Westhampton’s Gabreski Airport Hamptons Subway stop. Watch for it. -- DR 5.

Water Mill resident Jennifer Lopez has released “I Luh Ya Papi,” the third single from her upcoming album. Lopez recorded the song with hip-hop artist French Montana. Meanwhile former lovers Lopez and East Hampton’s Sean Combs, now known as Puff Daddy (again) are allegedly duking it out over Fuse TV. Combs reportedly offered to buy the music channel, while NuvoTV, of which Lopez is a backer, put in a competitive bid. The channel, owned by the Madison Square Garden Company, is available to approximately 74 million viewers. Wasn’t it a simpler time when Lopez and Puff Daddy used to go bowling at East Hampton Bowl? Will Montauk resident Mickey Drexler soon have a new boss? It’s possible. Fast Retailing, the Japanese company that owns Uniqlo, has reportedly offered to buy J.Crew, which Drexler has helped reach new levels of success as CEO. The company’s potential price tag is $5 billion.


Amagansett’s Sarah Jessica Parker unveiled her new shoe line, for which she partnered with Manolo Blahnik CEO George Malkemus III, at Nordstrom in Los Angeles last week. Parker recently gave Vogue magazine a 73-question interview and video tour Sarah Jessica Parker of her New York City brownstone. The fiveminute video can be viewed on DansPapers. com. No, it doesn’t include her show closet, but when asked “Heels or flats?” she just glares.

“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 March 29 – April 4, 2014 Riders this past week: 8,765 Rider miles this past week: 97,956 DOWN IN THE TUBE Justin Bieber was in town, riding the Hamptons Subway between Amagansett and East Hampton on Wednesday at 2 p.m. Somehow, the train car he was on managed to bump into the one in front of it at a certain point, causing the service to shut down for an hour and 10 minutes. We are investigating. Also seen on the subway were Henry Schleiff of Destination America channel and Tom Twomey from East Hampton heading to Bridgehampton, and Taylor Swift, sitting quietly on a train between Southampton and Water Mill last Thursday evening. SPRING CLEANING On the first day of spring last week, the subway underwent its annual spring cleaning, with employees smacking the seats on the cars with rug beaters, wiping down the counters, shining up the windows in all the token booths and

feather-dusting all the tunnels. Men with shovels marched into the pile of snow in the dark tunnel between Hampton Bays and Quogue—its been there since November—but made little headway. It’s becoming something of a tourist attraction, the snowdrift that won’t go away. TWO FOR ONE PROMOTION Frank Peterson’s first promotion for Hamptons Subway—he comes to us fresh from his work as PR man for the EPA—is underway. Riders can buy a “two for one” pass. Get one ticket for the first seven stops and then, instead of getting off at your station, just stay on it for another three. The promotion continues through Thursday. NYMPH A lovely young barefoot woman in a powder blue flowing gown skipped around on the platform in Quogue last Saturday morning for an hour beginning at 10 a.m. She played the flute topless for a while, threw handfuls of white rose petals across the platform floor from a wicker basket and stopped all traffic while she was there. In the end, she scooted up the down escalator to the street and was seen no more.


March 28, 2014 Page 17 She’s wanted for littering, indecent exposure, playing a musical instrument without a permit and being a public nuisance. FLASH MOB Hamptons Subway was the victim of a flash mob on Sunday at 3 p.m. At exactly that hour, at every platform, all the people on all the platforms surged onto the trains and then, at the next stop, surged back off. We had been warned about this behavior ahead of time by an anonymous caller and were ready for it, but since everybody doing this got off at the next stop and got away, there were no arrests. SUBWAY SECURITY POLICE OPENINGS The Hamptons Subway is looking for 3 good men or women. If this is you, you will be comfortable in a uniform, unfazed by chatter coming from a speaker on your shoulder, an expert marksman with a Glock pistol, unafraid of dogs and not shy about walking in full police dress in the Southampton Fourth of July Parade. A plus is being able to wear aviator sunglasses 24/7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRISCILLA CHARMICHAEL Our favorite secretary in the bookkeeping department turns 28 next Tuesday and everyone is invited to the party in the company cafeteria at noon that day. Priscilla, who has been married three times, says this next time—the wedding is the day after the birthday party—is it. COMMISSIONER ASPINALL’S MESSAGE We’ve had many complaints about the subway’s squealing around corners and driving residents above batty all day. There’s nothing we can do.

Just Answering Nature’s Call Two men out enjoying the fresh air and open spaces, found themselves ensnared by the law last week. They were on a hike along the wooded railroad tracks in the wilds of an East End town, and had brought a quantity of beer for sustenance. Perhaps their memories of their Boy Scout days had grown dim over the years, because instead of following the hiker’s edict to “leave it as they found it,” the two were reportedly disposing of their empty beer cans by throwing them into the woods. Police on patrol came along and were able to remind the men of their responsibility to follow the law—although by this time it appeared the pair had become intoxicated (they should have eaten some trail mix to soak up the beer!). Not long after the police arrived, one of the men allegedly felt compelled to continue his communion with nature by urinating on a nearby tree.

Energy Efficiency Trade Show Tuesday, April 22 at Atlantis Marine World 431 E. Main Street, Riverhead

McGumbus Wears The Green Old Man McGumbus, 104-year-old WWII veteran, organizer and Honorary Marshal of the first annual Shelter Island Old Man McGumbus St. Patrick’s Day Parade, issued a statement ahead of last week’s parade. It read, in part: “Whereas other St. Patrick’s Day parades have become overrun with overt displays of hipsterness, I hereby declare that my parade will be hipsterfree. Any open displays of the hipster lifestyle— waxed moustaches, designer eyeglasses, fedoras and the like—will be grounds for immediate removal from the parade route. I have authorized the police to take any actions necessary to carry out this prohibition. As St. Patrick rid Ireland of snakes, so to I will rid Shelter Island of hipsters.” When police were contacted about McGumbus’s claim of police support, they stated that they had no intention of taking orders from McGumbus. In the meantime, though, the hipster community heard about McGumbus’s plan to exclude them, and sometime on Thursday afternoon, hipsters confronted McGumbus and drenched him in what appeared to be a bucket of Shamrock Shake. Police investigations continue in the matter.

Montauk Mystery Police received reports of large numbers of people descending upon Montauk on Sunday. According to the reports, the intruders appeared to have coordinated their actions— many were wearing green clothing, which police speculate allowed them to recognize coconspirators. There were even unconfirmed rumors that the Long Island Rail Road contributed to the invasion by bringing the hordes into town on special, off-schedule trains. Police are pleading with the public for more information.

New England Connection Once Upon a Time, the East End of Long Island Was Part of Connecticut


veryone who comes to eastern Long Island is struck by the fact that the dozen or so major towns here look exactly like old New England villages. They have village greens, village ponds, windmills, saltbox houses, main streets, white churches with tall steeples. How could this be? This is Long Island. There are no old English towns on Long Island. But at the very east end of the island, there are, and they are all clustered together. The fact is that when the East End villages were first built, they WERE New England towns. The Dutch were in Nieuw Amsterdam. But out east, English subjects from New England had come across Long Island Sound soon after the Dutch established Nieuw Amsterdam, and established themselves at this place. And they never left. Southold, Southampton, East Hampton and Bridgehampton were settled at a time (1640, 1640, 1648 and 1656 respectively) when there was no city named New York. All except Southampton were founded by the settlers from Connecticut. Southampton’s settlers came from Lynn, Massachusetts. The elders here met periodically in log cabin long houses to administer the communities. But because settlers from Holland were to their west in Brooklyn and Manhattan, there seemed to be a necessity to adopt laws of one of the larger English colonies across the water. There were five: Massachusetts, Plymouth, Rhode Island,

New Haven and Connecticut. New Haven, you say? Yup. A man named John Davenport had founded New Haven Colony two years before the villages on Long Island were founded. Davenport felt the settlers in Massachusetts and Connecticut were not religious enough. So he and his followers founded New Haven Colony in 1638, separate from Connecticut. In any case, the East End settlers met. They chose, in 1664, to become part of Connecticut. Those in Southampton might have disagreed, since they were from Massachusetts, but they went along with it. In 1658, several decades before New England went crazy and began murdering women they considered witches in Salem and other places, the people of East Hampton, churchgoing Puritans all, became terrified that one of their own was a witch. Her name was Goody Garlick and she was, by all accounts then, a mean, gossipy woman with low opinions of her neighbors. She was in her 50s when the accusations came, married to a man who worked for Lion Gardiner, the founder of the town. It was said she could make animals do her bidding and could cast spells. One day, 16-year-old Elizabeth Gardiner Howell, the newly married daughter of Lion Gardiner, became sick. She got worse, took to her bed, and became delirious. In her delirium, she said she saw Goody Garlick at the foot of her bed, casting a spell on her; then this young woman got worse, and the next day she died.

The townspeople wanted Goody Garlick put to death before she killed more. A board of inquiry was formed, where magistrates heard testimony from townspeople. But it was determined that the people of East Hampton did not have the learning or skill to judge such a matter; Goody Garlick would be moved to be put on trial in the colonial court in Hartford, Connecticut. That court found her not guilty, and ordered her released and brought back to East Hampton. The Garlicks lived the rest of their lives there without further incident. During this time, strange things were happening in Connecticut that came to involve eastern Long Island. The colony of Connecticut was founded by Thomas Hooker in 1636. In 1640, a member of the Connecticut government, John Winthrop the Younger, gave a petition to the Governor of Connecticut that he wanted to have Fisher’s Island—land a few miles off the coast of Mystic in Connecticut—as his own private farming and hunting preserve. John Winthrop’s father had been the founder of Boston. He had a lot of clout. The Governor of Connecticut approved the request and, for good measure, the young John Winthrop made the exact same application to the Governor of Massachusetts, who also approved it. Things went along swimmingly for a while. John Winthrop the Younger visited his island. He was elected Governor of Connecticut. Then, two years after Connecticut absorbed New Haven Colony, in (Cont’d on next page)

England (Cont’d from previous page) 1662—New Haven opposed this for a while, then conceded—a momentous event for the colony occurred. In 1664, the British captured Nieuw Amsterdam and it was renamed New York after the Duke of York, brother of King Charles II. It was time for New York to stand up on its own. As part of this undertaking, the King decreed various borders—we all know what they are— and also allowed that “all islands in Long Island Sound be part of New York, not Connecticut.” As a result, Plum Island off the coast of Orient Point became part of New York. So did Fisher’s Island, which was little more than a stone’s throw from Mystic. Needless to say, retired Governor John Winthrop the Younger had great objections to this. Rhode Island stirred as well. And so it was that a meeting soon took place among these three colonies, and it was confirmed that an island that should be part of Connecticut was nevertheless now part of New York. And so it is today. Interestingly, the farmers and fishermen on eastern Long Island did not take kindly to the Duke of York’s decree, either. They at first, in 1664, refused to acknowledge they were part of New York. Well, what was New York supposed to do, invade? The East End was a place far, far away. In the end, New York waited it out. Finally, 12 years later, in 1676, the East Enders grudgingly went along with it. And so in spite of ourselves, that is where we are today. Another fascinating story involving Connecticut and eastern Long Island took place

in 1839. A slave ship in distress appeared offshore of Montauk. The ship, the Amistad, had originally come from Africa, where Spanish slavers had rounded up 53 Africans in chains in what is now Sierra Leone, led them to the ship, packed them into the hold, and took them to Havana, Cuba. From there, they were being transported to a smaller coastal city to be sold at auction when one slave, Cinque, broke free and, at night with several others, took over the ship. They killed all the Spaniards but two—a navigator and a man who could speak their African language and interpret. The Africans ordered them to sail them back home to Africa. Instead, the Spaniards decided to pretend to do that. By day they headed east toward Africa, but at night, they turned the ship 90 degrees and headed North—the Africans knew nothing about celestial navigation—and eventually, zigzagging like this, made landfall at Montauk. Cinque and a party of Africans came ashore with one of their captives, and it was here, while talking to some East Hampton residents, that an American Revenue Cutter called the USS Washington came around Montauk Point, discovered the ship at Culloden Point, seized control of it and detained Cinque and his men. They could have taken the men and the ship at this point to New York City. But the choice was made to take them to New London, Connecticut. Why? The captain of the Washington, Thomas R. Gedney, wanted to take personal possession of the ship and its cargo for salvage. This could be

done with abandoned ships at sea at that time. Connecticut, in 1839, 22 years before the Civil War, had declared slavery illegal. New York had not. Therefore, if the ship were brought to New York City, the Spanish government would seize it. In Connecticut, it could be declared salvage under international law and given to Gedney. In the end, Cinque and his men were put on trial in Hartford for mutiny and murder. The court acquitted them and ruled that as free men that could do whatever was necessary to free themselves from their kidnappers. The court ordered the Africans, free men, be transported home. But the Spanish, angry at these unfolding events, pressured President Martin Van Buren to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. It took a year before that case could get to the Supreme Court. During that time, the Africans were obliged to stay, but not be in jail, so they set up their encampment on the Hartford Town Green, where they sang and played instruments and were given food and clothing and visited by sympathizers and supporters. Retired president John Quincy Adams stepped forward to defend the Africans before the court, and, in the end, the court ruled in their favor. Now they were truly free to go. Many stayed, but Cinque asked to go home, which he did aboard an American ship. He went happily ashore, and that was the last we know of him. As you also may know, this encounter was made into a movie called Amistad, which many feel is among East Hampton resident Steven Spielberg’s best works.

Throw It Out Whether Old Clothes, Personal Papers or Love Letters, There Are Problems By Dan Rattiner


here was news last week in Southampton about the problems we face here in throwing things out. You know those bins that say not-for-profit on them where you can throw out clothes to hopefully have them used by those less fortunate? Turns out they are not always on the up and up. Turns out there have been bad people who have gone to some of the up-and-up bins, covered up the names of the nonprofit on the side and replaced them with fake names and then moved the bins—so these bad people can come around and collect the clothes themselves so they can re-sell them. Turns out there have been bad people who follow around a truck from a charity that’s on a weekly route to collect old clothes that have been put in bags in front of people’s homes. The following week, the charity truck goes out and there are no clothes. The bad people, having memorized the route, have been there earlier in the day. Turns out there are also some bins run by for-profit companies, who sell the clothing that people have dropped inside just assuming it was going to charity. As a result of this, Southampton Town is considering passing into law a new ordinance that would require all charitable clothing bin people to go to the town, show they have a 501(c)(3) registration and are approved to do charity work, and get a sticker to put on the bin. Next time you go out to throw out unwanted clothes, look for the sticker. As it happens, all the towns and villages in the Hamptons have had their problems with people throwing things out. Early on, you’d throw out things by taking

them out to the garbage can, throwing them in, hauling the can to the dump and shaking out the contents onto the big pile. And that was that. But then times changed. Although not completely. Today almost every town and village on Long Island has a municipal pickup service. A town vehicle comes up to your driveway and takes stuff away. It’s paid for by your taxes. But not in the Hamptons. Here, we still don’t have municipal garbage pick-up. We also don’t have paid fire departments. The volunteers put out fires just fine, thank you. And as for garbage, old clothes and furniture, fend for yourself. Take your garbage to the transfer center, put your old clothes in the bins, break up old furniture and pay a fee to dispose of it at the transfer center. The dump is closed.

What I saw was the tax return of a second-home owner who worked at Lehman Brothers. He made quite a tidy sum of money that year. I remember the week that the dump closed. Before that week, you could drive in almost any time to leave your garbage. It was especially convenient for second-home owners. They’d come out with the kids to their homes for the weekend, then on Sunday throw the trash into the trunk and drop it all off at the dump on the way back to the city. It worked perfectly. You didn’t want to leave trash at the house for the raccoons. Just take it to the dump as you leave. What they found, that first Sunday, was a big steel gate locked up across the entrance to the dump on Springs-Fireplace Road. It was now the transfer center, open Monday to Friday 9 to 5.

The summer-home owners had a choice. They could keep their smelly garbage in the car and drive off with it. Or they could pile it up against the steel gate. On Monday at 9, the town found hundreds of bags of garbage piled against the gate. Can’t have this, they realized. The next Sunday, they had police officers with pistols stationed at the former dump. The people would drive up, see the cops, back away and continue on with their garbage. Worked fine for the town. Not so fine for the second-home owners. You’ve probably guessed what the secondhome owners with the kids whining in the back seat now did. They weren’t much farther along from the gate when the adults in the front began to be on the lookout for a retail business that had a dumpster on the side or around the back. You just pulled in, opened the top, and dropped in your garbage. End of story. Took no more than a minute. And you’d get away clean. During the next month, I began to get complaints from merchants here and there along the way about their coming to work on a Monday morning to find garbage that wasn’t theirs in the dumpster. I told them to call the police. One day, I got a call from the owner of an antique shop on the highway in Wainscott. “Guess what I got in the garbage?” he said. “What?” “You’ve got to come down and see.” I went. What I saw was the tax return of a second-home owner who worked at Lehman Brothers in Manhattan. He made quite a tidy sum of money that year. All you had to do was brush off the ketchup. I photographed it, took it with me with the permission of the antique dealer, ran a picture of the front page of it in (Cont’d on next page)

(Continued from previous page)

the paper, with his name, address in Manhattan and total taxable income. “I have your tax return,” I wrote. “Hope it’s not causing you any inconvenience. Come and get it.” I also wrote where it had been found. He never came to get it. But he did stop putting his garbage into the antique dealer’s dumpster. But that wasn’t the end of it. About a month later, I was driving along Hedges Lane in Sagaponack and came upon an enormous white sign that had been strung between a barn and a telephone pole at the Osborne Farm. You didn’t even have to drive into their gravel parking area to read it. It was on four sewn-together bed sheets flapping up there, and had the name of this guy in big letters, asking him not to leave his garbage in their bin either. I photographed that and put it in the paper. On another occasion I got a call from the head of the recycling center up in North Sea that had formerly been the town dump. He invited me up, telling me I would not be disappointed, and I went. What I found was a makeshift “house,” entirely made of dump items. There were pieces of roofs, windows, sofas, lamps, a TV, a coffee table and so forth in one room, and then there was a bedroom and bathroom adjacent, fully equipped. The whole thing was see-through. If they had shingled it you could move in. Well, of course you wouldn’t want to. So I wrote a story about that. The following year, that same transfer center director called to tell me I ought to get in my

What I found there was an enormous pile in the woods that consisted entirely of the contents of the office of a United States congressman. car and drive down Wainscott Farm Road, and “where it crosses the tracks, just stay straight and go about a hundred yards on the dirt path and look to your right. You will not be disappointed.” What I found there was an enormous pile in the woods that consisted entirely of the contents of the office of a United States congressman. There were filing cabinets, office chairs, bookshelves, folders, framed photographs, secret “for your eyes only” files. I got down on my hands and knees and began to shuffle through all of it. I found file drawers filled with folders of local people applying to West Point. I found blueprints of nuclear plants. I found top secret briefing papers. All if it was from an eight-year period about 15 years earlier, when our elected congressman Stuyvesant Wainwright II served his four terms in Congress down in Washington. I was there over an hour. Then I heard the sounds of buzzing motorcycles. The sound got louder and louder. They were coming to arrest me. That turned out to be a 10-year-old boy on a dirt bike who came bursting out of the woods, waved and smiled, circled around

the pile once and then drove on down another path and away. I left shortly after that. And I wrote a story about that find, illustrating it with a drawing showing an architectural plan for a nuclear rod disposal pod. I published an account of that find in my memoir In the Hamptons. And soon after that, I found out from friends and family what all that stuff was doing there. I was also told that the congressman loved the story. The Wainwrights owned a big house in the Georgica Association. But then they went through a divorce. Mrs. Wainwright got the house in Georgica, but it bothered her that the entire contents of her ex-husband’s Washington office had been moved and set up in the basement of the house. She asked him to move it out. He didn’t. She asked him again. He still didn’t. And so, without his knowledge, she hired a man with a big truck to take the contents of this office “away.” He very likely promised her he’d take it to the dump. But now, of course, there was no dump, there was only the transfer recycling center where the dump once was, and you had to pay a fee to drop stuff off. How much cheaper would it be just to drop it in the woods? Who would know? So that’s what happened. Volunteer firemen, masquerading clothing bins, recycling centers, town dumps and income tax returns. It’s all part of the Hamptons. So watch out.

Win $5,000 Who Will Be Selected the Best Writer of Short Nonfiction in 2014? By Dan Rattiner


he Dan’s Papers $6,000 Literary Prize for Nonfiction competition is now underway. And you are welcome to compete for one of three prizes—a $5,000 first prize, and two runner-up prizes of $500 each. Submit your entries online at Come to the awards ceremony on August 16 at the John Drew Theater to see if you won. At that time, the winners will be named and their selections read. This is the third year of the Prize, and I am proud to say that nonfiction is alive and well on the eastern end of Long Island. One or another of the many excellent entries are featured in this newspaper almost every week, while others are read aloud at our monthly salons, held on Saturday afternoons at the Southampton Inn all winter (the final salon of this season is April 26). All entries must reference the East End of Long Island in some meaningful way. The piece has to be short—between 600 and 1500 words— and it can be anything but fiction or poetry, so we have been getting entries that are about a historical incident, a biography, a memoir, a walk through the woods, a bit of humor, an opinion. A panel of judges reads all the entries. I am not a judge, but I am the referee for this event and I have had my favorites, mostly those that are filled with humor. I loved one entry about four friends who unintentionally capsize

a sailboat on Mecox Bay and then are able to wade ashore onto the private property of some celebrity whose security team detains them there and threaten to have them arrested for trespassing. I recall another I loved about a Halloween evening at the Montauk Manor, where the staff dresses up in costume to welcome guests and then have to deal with a distressed woman in one of the rooms who wants help in corralling her boyfriend, who is drunk and threatening her. The front desk sends a man up there who is dressed as a Franciscan monk and ends up in a wrestling match with the inebriated man. I’ve read pieces about shipwrecks, about weddings, about death, about hikes along a deserted beach. In the contest’s first year, the winning entry was written by a Shinnecock Indian whose entire essay was about the magical Pow Wow dancing garments the women of the tribe sewed for him. I love reading these pieces and hearing them read aloud. We’ve had standing-room crowds during the awards at the John Drew Theatre to hear Pia Lindstrom read the winning entry, and this year I expect the same when Mercedes Ruehl does the honors. This year at the awards ceremony, author Walter Isaacson, who’s written memoirs of Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs, will give the keynote speech. Past speakers have been E.L. Doctorow and Robert Caro.

For the past 35 years, Dan’s Papers has honored Hamptons artists with weekly covers of their work. Now, we want to do the same for writers. The First Prize award will be presented by Barnes & Noble, which provides major funding for the prize competition. As part of this year’s event, Dan’s Papers will also be awarding a scholarship to a Stony Brook University student. Writers have flocked to the East End for centuries to write award-winning works. John Steinbeck lived and wrote here. So did Arthur Miller, James Jones, Truman Capote, Betty Friedan, James Fenimore Cooper and a host of other authors of both fiction and nonfiction. We are looking to discover the next winner of the Pulitzer Prize, or the next winner of the George Polk Award in Journalism. For the past 35 years, Dan’s Papers has honored the artists of the Hamptons with weekly covers of their work. Now, by offering up this competition, we do the same for the writers. Why not you? Think of what you want to write about. Go to, read the rules and enter your essay there (there’s a modest fee to enter). The deadline is midnight of July 21.

f you’ve never tried to interview a musician, you don’t know the complications. They are busy people, running on schedules seemingly not made with the rest of the world in mind. Now make that three musicians, toss in families, out-of-town commitments and the call of a well-earned island vacation, and the chances of getting Caroline Doctorow, Inda Eaton and Nancy Atlas together for an interview are pretty slim. So it was between their being in sub-zero weather in Wyoming, booking local folk festivals and being chased by stingrays in Trunk Bay that the three East Enders found time to get together...or at least talk about the notion.

These talented singer-songwriters are once again blending their voices, music and bands for “Way Out East: A Journey in Song“ on Saturday, April 5. Their first journey “way out east” took place in October of 2012 at Guild Hall’s John Drew Theater, and this year the ladies are journeying a bit west, appearing at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. Good friends offstage, these diverse performers bring the warmth of that relationship to their show. “The best part of playing with Nancy and Caroline” comments Eaton, “is the camaraderie from backstage at the kitchen table that comes through in the harmony.” With a friendship based partially on the connection of being established female

bandleaders, the three “understand each other in a way that few others do,” according to Atlas. Speaking of Atlas, Doctorow says, “The first time I saw her I thought, That girl has the it factor. She is fearless. Her moral compass is straight and true, more then any other musician I know of in my peer group.” It’s apparent that both Eaton and Atlas look at Doctorow as an East End musical trailblazer. Their acknowledgement of this status often takes the form of good-natured ribbing onstage. “Inda and I are the two loudmouths, but Caroline is the one to watch,” says Atlas. “That woman has the best one-liners and is tougher than a tomcat.” Known to East End audiences a good while before Atlas was strumming her guitar at the old Wild Rose and a good stretch before Eaton had set foot this far east, Doctorow has a healthy perspective on the local music scene, where it’s been and the strong direction it’s now going. “I started out a long time ago,” she says. “Back then there were just a few steady bars that presented live music and just a handful of working bands. Now with theaters like Bay Street, which is a real jewel, and other new theaters popping up, music presented at local wineries, museums, clubs and listening rooms, there are opportunities all around us.” After they wow audiences at what promises to be a sold-out Bay Street performance, these three friends will hit the road for a small Wyoming tour built around Eaton’s educational outreach program, Ideas to Inspire (I2I), which shares the power of music and creativity with young students. A concert performance for the nonprofit organization Artcore in Casper, Wyoming, will be a focal point of the trip, which will also include other educational opportunities for the performers. “I’m so excited,” says Atlas, “I get to present my children’s book Rockstar Pigeon in addition to playing great venues.” Doctorow shares that excitement. “Inda does great work out there,” she says. “I’m not sure what to expect, it will be a very fast-paced tour. As the great western singer Patsy Montana once said, ‘I don’t know where I’m going but at least I’ll have company.’”


“Way Out East: A Journey in Song” with Nancy Atlas, Caroline Doctorw and Inda Eaton Saturday, April 5, at 8 p.m. at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor. For tickets and more information, visit

This Week’s Cover Artist: Ramiro Sanchez By MARION WOLBERG-WEISS

While this week’s cover by Ramiro Sanchez, “Maria! Maria!” resembles a portrait, it has some similarities with the artist’s striking landscapes. In fact, many of his portraits and figurative pieces have seemed like metaphors for fields, the sky and all manner of natural surroundings. Sanchez’s work, whether images of people or crashing waves, is emotional, evoking psychological states of mind. Sanchez has been working on both his worldview and his technical craft for a long time, since he was 14 years old, in fact. Leaving his native Venezuela, he moved to Italy, where he enrolled at The Florence Academy of Art, receiving a degree in painting. Besides painting and teaching (he has been an instructor at The Academy since 1997), Sanchez comes to Sag Harbor each summer with his family, producing work of our lovely area, including Long Beach, Long Island Sound and colorful poppy fields.

What have you learned from teaching at The Florence Academy of Art? It is very satisfying to see students developing their passion, becoming professional artists, respected and renowned. Also, the flow of new students keeps my spirit young and enthusiastic. What are your summers like in Sag Harbor? I come to Sag Harbor with all my family, and I mean all my family, including Maya our beagle. While on the East End, I mostly paint, hang out with good friends and enjoy the occasional dip in the ocean. I also exhibit my paintings at the Grenning Gallery, and I have given workshops in Sag Harbor. I love being part of the community.

What are your interests besides art? I love spending time playing the viola. Among my hobbies, I must mention darts. What will you be doing in 10 years? I think that in 10 years, even if I win the lottery, I will be doing exactly what I do today. Enjoying family, the arts and friends and hopefully painting with the same intensity that I do now. Ramiro Sanchez will have a solo show at Sag Harbor’s Grenning Gallery (17 Washington Street) July 9–27, 2014. For more information, visit or call 631-725-8469.

How did the cover image come about? “Maria! Maria!” was one of my very first religiously inspired images. The painting was done from life; I used as a model one of my closest friends. The work is an interpretation of the Annunciation of Mary. The young girl listens to this inner voice in full peacefulness. The empty bowl on her lap represents her womb. The white lilies are the symbol of Archangel Gabriel, as in many Dutch and Italian Renaissance paintings.

How about your landscapes? What’s your inspiration for them? With the turn of the season, I am eager to get out of the studio and paint en plein air. In the last few years, I have dedicated all my landscape painting to East End imagery. Even when I am back in Florence, I make sketches from memory of summers past in the East End. Laura Grenning from Grenning Gallery was right when she promised I would fall in love with the light and nature there. Was anyone in your family an artist? What was your main motivation to paint? I heard that my great grandfather was an altar maker in the Andes. Apart from that, most of my motivation comes from my education at Ninos Cantores, the school I attended until I was 18 years old, back in Maracaibo. What were the most important things you learned in school? Never forget your roots, culture and tradition and make sure you paint the pictures that you cannot live without.

saturday, APRIL 5





Is this painting similar to your other figurative works? This painting is similar in terms of composition, aesthetics and symbolic contact. It also marks the beginning of my interest in religious imagery, which I have been developing ever since.

Running for Boston on the East End By kelly laffey

The Boston Marathon— April 21—is just over three weeks away, and the anniversary of the 2013 Marathon—April 15—is just over two. It still gives me chills to think that I was in Boston the day before the marathon last year, indulging in pre-marathon running celebrations with friends who raced the next day. Thankfully they—and the scores of spectators I soon realized I knew—were all right.

Like so many, I furiously attempted to score one of the 37,000 official numbers to race this year, in a showing of solidarity with the entire running community. It makes me smile to think that thousands shared my idea, even though the increased interest meant that securing a number was even tougher than usual. Though I’m left to celebrate the event in a different way, thankfully there are options: Run with RunKeeper: The app, which calls Boston its home, has launched a campaign to get its users to collectively log 118 million miles. (For those of you keeping track, this is the race’s 118th anniversary.) RunKeeper is a free app that allows users to keep track of mileage, pace and distance while also

syncing with your iTunes library. The app has expanded outside of its namesake running and also includes an option to keep track of such “cross training” activities as biking, elliptical, hiking and walking. All activities are included in the 118 million miles challenge. Just power up the app before you begin your workout. Donate to The One Fund: The One Fund is a 501(c)(3) charity established soon after the 2013 marathon to assist the needs of victims and families. The One Fund is in the process of determining long-term needs of all affected, and it will announce future plans once the assessment has been completed. Alternatively, you can donate to my friend and former Wake Forest teammate who is running in support of Dana-Farber Cancer Institute at Run Boston 2015: I still maintain that the best way to show support for the Boston Marathon is to run it, and I’ll keep trying until I get there. The most surefire way to guarantee entry is to qualify by running another marathon: For women ages 18–34, the standard is 3 hours, 35 minutes (8 min, 12 second miles); For men ages 18–34, the standard is 3 hours and 5 minutes (7 min, 3 second miles). But Boston registration is done in waves, and in years past, you’ve needed to surpass the qualifying standards by at least five minutes in order to truly guarantee your entry. Registration for the 2015 Boston Marathon opens in mid-September, so get training! The other way to punch your ticket to the event is to secure a charity number, but this is where things get dicey. Affiliated charities are given a certain number of entries to give to people who pledge to fundraise. I understand that a nonprofit is going to give their numbers to the people who pledge to raise the most amount of money. But this year, the demand for race numbers was so high that many nonprofits charged you a fee to apply for a number, and some didn’t accept anyone who pledged less than $10,000. As someone who really hoped to run the race in 2014, the whole process was disheartening, but I can’t say that I don’t understand the reasoning behind it. Follow the Elite Runners: Though the Elite Field is subject to change, as runners evaluate their training and injuries as the race gets closer, the American field is stacked, giving us another chance to end our decades-long winning drought. (An American hasn’t won since the early 1980s.) On the men’s side, American Ryan Hall enters the race with the fifth-fastest time in the field (2:04:58). On the women’s side, Desiree Davila Linden’s personal best marathon time of 2:22.38 makes her the eighth fastest in the field. Run the Shelter Island Run: The 35th annual Shelter Island Run will be held on Saturday, June 21, and it has historically had strong ties to Boston. The epic 10K draws international participation, and in years past, two of the Boston Marathon’s most famous winners—Joan Benoit Samuelson (1979) and Bill Rodgers (1975, 1978, 1979, 1980)—have run. Last year, the race honored the victims of the 2013 Marathon. Head to for additional information on the 2014 race.

Paving to Begin on 27 No Kill Shark Tourney, Festival Returns SI Sees Bald Eagles EAST END: The New York State Department of Transportation will begin paving Montauk Highway along an 8.2 mile stretch between CR 39 and Stephen Hands Path on March 27, weather permitting. The top layer of asphalt will be shaved down, to make way for new pavement, including a designated bike lane. The work will be done between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.; and after April 1, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 p.m. as well. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year, but it will break between the Friday of Memorial Day weekend until after Labor Day. The goal of the project is to shift lanes, not close them, during construction. Work progress will be done with an eye toward community wishes—anyone who has an issue with paving in a certain area on a certain day because of a special event can call 631-952-6041 to make a scheduling request.

MONTAUK: The Shark’s Eye All-Release Tournament & Festival, Montauk’s only satellite tag, catch-and-release shark tournament returns July 11–13. A maximum of 50 boats will be accepted as teams for a $750 entry fee through May 1 and $950 after that date. Now in its second year, the first and only satellite tag, all-release shark tournament in the Northeast welcomes competitors to battle it out for thousands in cash and prizes. The tournament’s format is designed to ensure the post-release welfare of all sharks caught, making the Shark’s Eye one of the industry leaders for a new, environmentally sensitive generation of shark-release tournaments. One of the tournament’s primary goals is to bring attention to the plight of sharks and to help bring back the large sharks that are disappearing from local waters. Participating scientists and their teams will attach satellite tags to some eligible species to monitor their movements after release. Competitors and the public can then track the sharks’ movements on the OCEARCH Global Shark Tracker website (ocearch. org). The event will also continue its support of the Wounded Warrior Project by hosting a team of veterans competing with a boat and entry provided courtesy of renowned North Haven artist Eric Fischl. While competition heats up on the water, there will also be a festival on shore at Montauk Marine Basin, the tournament and festival’s host location. For more info about the Shark’s Eye All-Release Tournament & Festival, visit or call Carl Darenberg of Montauk Marine Basin at 631-668-5900.

SHELTER ISLAND: The Nature Conservancy confirmed last Tuesday that a pair of bald eagles is nesting at its Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island—the third known nesting site on Long Island of late. According to the Nature Conservancy, the nest is tucked away in an oak tree in a remote part of the preserve. The 2,039-acre Mashomack Preserve includes 12 miles of coastline and covers a third of Shelter Island. The Nature Conservancy purchased the reserve 34 years ago. “The fact that bald eagles are nesting at Mashomack speaks to the value of preserved land and its significance for wildlife,” Mashomack Preserve director Michael Laspia said. “We couldn’t be happier that our national bird is gracing us with its presence—and we hope this majestic species has a successful season rearing its young here.”

Bridal Expos, Exposing All Your Options


ou’ve met his mother. He’s met your mother. The proposal was charming. The ring is perfect. Now that everything is official, you’ve got a wedding to plan, and it’s an overwhelming task. Before you jump in your car and ask Siri to find you the nearest florist, bakery, limo service and ice sculptor, just ask her to guide you to a bridal expo. A bridal expo is like a wedding-themed, pop-up mall where a bride can find everything she needs— from a sweet dress for a flower girl to a martini bar for the grown-ups. Instead of travelling around to 20 different locations, wearing out your patience and racking up the mileage, the vendors come to you, or rather, a venue in your area that’s just dying to be your wedding location. You’ll get to sample catering, enjoy a runway shows of bridal fashions and groove to a number of DJs showing off their style. No matter what kind of reception you’re planning, a wedding expo is the easiest way to get a ton of information quickly. It can be overwhelming, but it can also be a lot of fun. East End brides won’t have to travel farther than Riverhead for a beautiful bridal show experience. The Suffolk Theater is hosting a bridal expo on Sunday, March 30 from 12 p.m.–4 p.m., and the Martha Clara Vineyard Bridal Show will take place the following Sunday, April 5 from 1 p.m.–5 p.m. $10 gets you in the door at both shows.

Wedding Planning 101: Gadgets Of Love ewsflash: Weddings are stressful! I’m 22 years into my marriage and I still have flashbacks about all the planning and bickering. First, there’s the menu—lamb chops or spring rolls, Cabernet or Merlot? Then there’s music—band or DJ? Photographer? Video guy? Gown and tuxedo? The ring? Good God, I need a drink. And this is before they hand over the bill! If all this stress hasn’t scared you off, and you insist on getting hitched, then I have good news: you’re not in this alone. There are scores of websites, apps and gadgets that can help you deal with the

The Planner Always start with the basics: you’ll need help to keep track of everything that’s going on. The Knot is probably the top wedding site out there, and they have a decent free smartphone app to help you get organized. When you open the app, it immediately pulls up photos from actual weddings to provide ideas and inspiration for yours. Tap any photo, and the app digs deeper with additional photos and a list of vendors from that wedding. So it’s not just for ideas. You can instantly connect directly with a florist, band or juggler who catches your eye. The app also has a budget function which helps plan and track expenses, and a guest list organizer with real-time updates on who’s making the scene and who’s busy. Other options include Wedding Wire and even Pinterest for more ideas. Registry Do you realize that way back in the ’90s, you actually went to a store, spent hours perusing the merchandise and had someone write down everything you wanted? And that the only way for friends and family to buy those items was to go to the store and read the registry? Crazy right? The concept of the wedding registry is sheer genius—an efficient eBay-style marketplace for lovers—and thankfully, technology has jumped in to improve the process. Virtually all department stores and online retailers have their own bridal registry apps. Even better: there are multiple apps that let you create a registry that blends items from any store and tie them together

into a single location. Wedding Registry costs $.99 but has a clean interface and a nice barcode scanner to help you breeze through the aisles and mark your favorite booty. The app also lets you add items from any website, so you can sit on your couch right up until the Big Day. It’s also social. Your guests receive a code and can access your items in a private area. Instawish and Giftster are other popular apps that cater to weddings and all occasions. Because nothing says “I love you” like efficient gift flow. The Band Most wedding bands now post their performances online. So at the very least you won’t need to waste a dozen perfectly good Saturday nights crashing other people’s weddings to scout talent. Even better: check out It’s simple: enter the type of event, what kind of performer you’re looking for (band, DJ, (Continued on page 36)

or the first time in my 25-year-old life, I’m going to be a bridesmaid. The honor will be bestowed upon me twice in the coming months. But, as both weddings are out-of-state, my duties are a bit modified from the typical lady-in-waiting. And in both cases, the brides-to-be have sent out various emails with wedding details. The first order of business, before I even book a flight: Hair. The day-of-wedding look is apparently important enough to warrant an informational email about what salon we’ll all be going to—in three months. If the weddings were on the East End, Scarlett Rose Salon would have the solutions to those bridal needs, offering an array of hair and salon services, including the all-important trial run.

Not being the bride, however, I recently got to—selfishly, ha!— experience Scarlett Rose without all the pressure of planning an event for 100plus guests. Scarlett Rose Salon is on Division Street in what looks like a typical, historic Sag Harbor home. This is appropriate, considering that owner Annie Kim treats each of her clients like family and the salon is named for Annie’s daughter. After our greeting, Annie

I started my experience with a pedicure. Hoping to bring on spring weather with a nice, bright color, I went with a soft orangey-peach. Next, it was time for a blowout. I’ve always considered myself lucky that my hair grows quickly, except, of course, when its style all-too-quickly morphs into, well, no style. It becomes a flat mess, with a slightly shorter chunk in the front that used to be a chic side bang. It’s amazing what someone who knows what they’re doing with a blow dryer can do to my unruly mop. The experience started with a wash, using Aveda products, and another great massage, this one for my head. Annie next directed me to her chair, where she conducted a consultation about how I wear my hair. My hair was transformed over the next 20 minutes. I left the salon feeling like I had a trim, highlights and a blowout. But no, it was just the work of someone skilled with a blow dryer. Tip: for people whose roots are starting to show, make your part more zigzagged to distract from the darker color. I left Scarlett Rose ready to recommend it to any bride-to-be. As for me, I felt fully reinvigorated and prepared to conquer my bridesmaidly duties.

offered me a drink—tea, coffee or water—before showing me to the manicure/pedicure room. Annie revealed that she recently renovated the salon’s interior, creating a bright, airy space with hair care in the front and nail care in the back. When the business was revamped, Scarlett Rose became an Aveda Salon. Annie takes pride in the salon’s affiliation, especially because being an Aveda salon comes with the added perk of continuing education. The expert staff at Scarlett Rose is constantly honing their skills to keep up with the latest hair and salon trends. I started my experience with a pedicure. Hoping to bring on spring weather with a nice, bright color, I went with a soft orangey-peach, straight from the resort line. Pedicurist Consuelo Sanchez was very diligent in her work, somehow making my feet baby soft before expertly applying the polish. The experience is enhanced by the massage chair, which you control. My toenails dried during the manicure, which was completed with a memorable hand massage. For those of you who spend the day typing away, there’s nothing like giving your hands a little pampering.

or lovers, and for lovers of long, rolling waves, sunsets over the sea and sandy beaches scattered with dramatic cliffs, could there be anywhere more romantic than Montauk for a wedding? Not if you want your guests to be able to drive there from the NYC-Tristate area. You can get to Montauk easily from New York City via the Hampton Jitney or the LIRR. The Viking Ferry offers express service from Block Island, RI, New London, CT and Newport, RI, and the Cross Sound Ferry offers daily service between Orient Point and New London, CT. Or, come by your own boat and dock at one of Montauk’s marinas. Want to speed things up? Check out Montauk Airport, which offers a courtesy van, and New England Airlines. Once you arrive, call Main Street Drivers (917421-0800), Lindy’s Taxi (631) 668-4747), MOKO Taxi (631-668-7070), or The End Taxi Ltd., for SUV’s, (631-404-5058). Or look for Hamptons Free Ride—the 100% electric, eco- and wallet-friendly service that will drive you around town. Now that we’ve laid out how to get there, the big question on most recently engaged couples’ minds is: When? Weddings in Montauk are celebrated throughout the year, with the fall months being especially popular. The weather is mild, even warm, and the summer traffic has dwindled considerably. Hotel rates might also be lower than in the summer months—which is worth considering given the many expenses of weddings! Guests from out of town can enjoy walks on the beach, hiking in Camp Hero State Park, visiting the historic Montauk Point Lighthouse and taking in the incredible feeling of being on The End, surrounded by nature.

celebrated in August. The indoor area provided a warm glow so the party could continue past sunset. Other popular spots include Solé East, 360 East at Montauk Downs, Gurney’s and the Montauk Lake Club and Marina. Keep it local with cakes by Montauk Bake Shoppe or the Blue Duck Bakery (Southampton is close enough!) and local floral arrangements by Amagansett by Beth or Flowers by Topaz. Everyone loves wines from Wölffer Estate and Channing Daughters on the South Fork, and Lieb Cellars (among countless others!) on the North Fork. Most of all, keep it fun with creative ideas that suit your personal style—nautical themes, flipflops for guests or shell placeholders. Anyone considering tying the knot in Montauk simply must visit for the 2014 Montauk Chamber of Commerce Vacation Guide, which will help you out with links to all kinds of

Accommodations in Montauk include options suited to every budget and style—but you’ll have to plan ahead to reserve rooms. A few popular spots are Beachcomber Resort, Harborside Motel, Beach Plum Resort, Breakers Resort and of course Gurney’s Inn Resort Spa and Conference Center. The list goes on, though, so be sure to check out for complete details. Montauk wedding ceremonies range from the outdoor, with ocean or bay views, to churches and other indoor settings. One recent wedding ceremony took place at Camp Hero, overlooking the sea cliffs. Another more traditional wedding took place at St. Therese de Lisieux. This is a gorgeous yet simple Roman Catholic church with exposed beam ceilings. The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Montauk Yacht Club, with barefoot fun on Lake Montauk. Ladies in attendance were provided with pashmina shawls to wrap themselves with in case it got chilly. Another reception, that took place in May (preMemorial Day), was held at The Surf Lodge—where guests danced on the deck and relaxed around firepits in the sand overlooking beautiful Fort Pond. Also overlooking Fort Pond is Navy Beach—the wonderful French restaurant—where a couple tied the knot and

Drink in the whole North Fork!

So much to see and do this weekend!

By gianna volpe


ove Lane—the heart of the North Fork universe—is a bastion of local businesses whose chiefly female owners give their all to the stores of Mattituck’s small-town shopping mecca. The quaint commercial paradise, bookended by the Main Road facing North Fork Saddlery and Pike Street’s Blue Sage Day Spa, is an ever-evolving and at the moment, it’s absolutely chock full of news. Perhaps the biggest news coming out of Love Lane is that Cecily’s Love Lane Gallery is for sale. Cecily Jaffe became the veritable grand matron of Love Lane 20 years ago as the first female business owner of the bunch, but Jaffe is now searching for the right buyer to take over her business. “I want someone who is an entrepreneur—a go-getter,” Jaffe said on the subject, adding she would remain nearby as her successor developed his or her “Love legs,” despite plans to travel. “I would even stick around for a few months to help them out as they get oriented or consider a partnership, for a time, but I would want to eventually be bought out.” The circle of Love will be continued by the likes of such shop owners as Kate Altman and Carolyn Iannone, who have now been at the helms of their respective businesses, Altman’s and Love Lane Kitchen, for more than a year and Joanna Mazzella, whose chic women’s fashion boutique, Mint, celebrates its 10th Love Lane anniversary at the end of May. Mazzella called the flagship store of her blossoming Mint boutique chain, which recently

added its fifth location, stylistically “contemporary and trend-driven” with “something for everyone.” Love Lane will also soon be the site of the East End’s newest farmers market, according to Village Cheese Shop’s Rosemary Batchellor, who said the new weekly market will be located on the grounds of the Mattituck Florist. Batchellor said possible purveyors include Browder’s Birds, the certified organic free-range chicken farmers who recently made headlines as the owners of Long Island’s very first mobile slaughterhouse. But in the coming weeks, news of organic eggs coming to Love Lane takes a backseat to that of the Easter variety as deliveries roll into The Love Lane Sweet Shoppe, revving up for the impending rush of sweet-toothed sales associated with the April holiday. Sweet Shop owner Jackie Wilsberg said she could not have handled bagging hundreds of pounds of jelly beans, chocolate bunnies and eggs if it weren’t for the help of her two daughters, Chelsea and Ashley, the latter of whom will soon deliver her own little Easter Bunny. “Ashley’s due before Easter and believe me, she’s my right hand, but that’s okay, we’ll be fine,” Wilsberg said of losing her manager just before a major chocolate holiday. “This will be my second granddaughter, so hopefully one day those two little girls will be working at the shop and grandma can take a little time off.” The Love Lane Sweet Shoppe not only specializes in high-end candies, but in creating custom Easter baskets. “Some people will call ahead and put a monetary value on the basket or make requests based on a

child’s age, and then they’ll come in to pick it up,” she said. “Other people will bring their own baskets in, pick what they want and we’ll fill it for them.” Wilsberg said the unique touch the Sweet Shoppe puts on their Easter baskets, which include unique toys and other non-edibles that won’t often be found elsewhere, comes from a desire not to offer customers the “same old, same old” found in box shops. “In our store, we try very, very hard to provide things that you’re not seeing in the mass, giant stores,” she said of offered items like rock candy, Astro Pops and Bonomo Turkish Taffy. “Parents love to introduce to toys and candies that they played with or enjoyed as children,” said Wilsberg. “Why bother coming to me if you can’t find something different, exciting and new—or even nostalgic.”

Choral Society of the Hamptons Previews Spring


he Choral Society of the Hamptons is presenting their latest concert this Sunday, March 30, at 5 p.m. at East Hampton’s First Presbyterian Church. The group will perform under the direction of guest conductor Walter Klauss, and will be joined by soprano Mary Hubbell, mezzo-soprano Barbara Fusco, tenor Nathan Siler, and baritone Michael Maliakel. The South Fork Chamber Ensemble will provide instrumental accompaniment. The concert, titled “Viva Vivaldi,” will feature Vivaldi’s Gloria, a perennial favorite, as well the cantata Gott ist mein König by J.S. Bach and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ ravishing Five Mystical Songs. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 at the door. The youth rate, for children 18 and under, is $10. The concert promises to be a crowd-pleaser: the balance of highly accessible works for the uninitiated along with a seldom-heard early work by the German Baroque master J.S. Bach offers a great opportunity for music-lovers to share their love with someone who may not know how great this music can be. On an imaginary Top 40 list of the most popular choral repertoire (there probably is one out there somewhere!), Vivaldi’s Gloria would be near the top. It’s a textbook example of a Baroque-style choral work. Full of energy, downright danceable in its rhythmic vitality, and full of memorable tunes, Vivaldi’s setting of the Gloria from the Mass expresses all of the joy and wonder of the text.

While the songs are person to the beauties of classical music, quite brief, some of them—especially you couldn’t do much better than Vivaldi’s “Love Bade Me Welcome” and “The Gloria.

Number 5, for example—the years, Hamptonites have been the “Propter magnam gloriam,” for those beneficiary of our local choral society’s keeping track—combines an incisive determination to delve into the less pulse with a chromatically descending familiar repertoire.

Carolina Chocolate Drops at WHBPAC


that’s what Jenkins’ experience was as he got to know the banjo. He wasn’t researching history or trying to understand sociology: he was playing from his heart. “I wasn’t thinking about the historical significance at the time,” he says. “I had a strong connection to the banjo. I just played it obsessively. It was the music that grabbed me.” Jenkins had been playing for a while, living with musicians and getting into old time music when he met Dom Fleming, one of the founding members of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

he Carolina Chocolate Drops take old time American music back to its roots. Attending one of their shows is not only a rollicking good time but a lesson in American history as well. While most people see a banjo and think of country and bluegrass music, the instrument was in fact introduced to this country by slaves. The banjo’s ancestors are stringed instruments made of hollowed-out gourds, and back on the plantations, slaves would build these instruments and play. “What was happening on the plantations was the first wholly American music form,” says Hubby Jenkins, who plays the banjo as well as the mandolin, guitar, bones and fiddle for the Carolina Chocolate Drops. “We play old time music, which can mean a few things. Old time blues, old time jazz, old time country. But one major thing we’re doing is teaching people the roots of the banjo as a black instrument.” Jenkins recalls a time he was playing a tune by Robert Johnson, a Delta Blues legend. “Someone came up to me and said ‘Wow. I never saw a black person play bluegrass before’,” he recalls. “I felt there were so many things wrong with that statement. It made me feel I had a responsibility to teach people.” Jenkins joined the Carolina Chocolate Drops four years ago, after they already had a couple of albums and a Grammy under their belt. The Carolina Choclate Drops perform at Westhampton Beach PAC on April 3 Rhiannon Giddens is the only founding member “I was like, ‘Wow—a black person who plays old still in the group, but the mission of the group has time music!’” he recalls. remained. It’s in the education. Soon after, Fleming asked Jenkins if he played Although you may be getting a lesson in musical history and cultural heritage, it will feel like you’re the fiddle. He said he couldn’t, but Fleming asked just out for a freewheeling night on the town. And if he would join the band anyway. Since then, he’s

picked up the fiddle to go along with the trove of instruments that he might pull out in a given show. Mostly, he plays the banjo, and Giddens has taken over primary fiddle-playing duty. “Sometimes I’ll crummily strum along to a tune on the fiddle,” he says humbly. The latest incarnation of the Carolina Chocolate Drops includes Giddens, Jenkins, cellist Malcolm Parson and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Corbett. “We have a groove that’s been established,” says Jenkins. “A lot of the tunes we play are the same, but we’re always changing in style. We continue to approach old time music rhythmically in a way that distinguishes us.” But things are definitely fluid for the group, as they move from instrument to instrument and share the singing. They’re also playing a lot more original songs to complement the old time favorites. Giddens is the songwriter, and has been inspired by her interest in the history of the music as a black art form. But when you go to a Carolina Chocolate Drops show, you will not be confusing the experience with a lecture hall or place of study. “Everything we play is foot stomping, fingertapping, ass-shaking music,” says Jenkins. “It has functionality. It’s music played at picnics, at holiday gatherings, after corn shucking. It’s not meant for people to sit and listen in silence. The movement is in the music.” Courtesy WHBPAC

Movies... Noah The trailer for Noah ends with an onscreen text prebuttal that seems to anticipate objections from Biblical purists. In essence, the text says that if you want the Biblical story of Noah, then read it in the Bible. You are not to labor under the impression that the creators of the film Noah thought they were making a Biblical epic faithful to the Book of Genesis. Indeed, Noah filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has used the Biblical story of Noah and the ark as a jumpingoff point, filling in the gaps in what has to be called a very condensed original story with vivid details that incorporate sex, violence, fantasy and sciencefiction—he even gives a shout-out to evolution. And why not? Surely the story of Noah, among the most compelling of all stories in human history, deserves to be fleshed out. So many unanswered questions: how did Noah’s neighbors react, how did Noah defend his boat against evil, why shouldn’t the humanity that God was seeking to eradicate have had access to supernatural powers? The essence of the story in Noah remains the same: God wanted the ultimate do-over, but he wanted to spare the innocent. Russell Crowe stars, but Hamptonites should be on the lookout for local artist and blacksmith James DeMartis in a bit part as—surprise!—a blacksmith. Sabotage A muddled storyline—something involving undercover police busting a drug dealer at a California

motel and later a knife-fight showdown on a bridge in an industrial part of town—is further confused in Sabotage by sloppy camerawork and breaks in continuity. On the other hand, this parody of ’70s TV police dramas wins us over with the absurd hairstyles, including the full walrus moustaches worn by every major character and the farcical attempts at stunt work, which are clearly played for laughs. Starring Sir Stewart Wallace as himself, along with Nathan Wind, Vic Colfari and Alasondro Alegre. You’ll be leaving the theater repeating the Beastie Boys catchphrase “I’m tellin’ y’all, it’s Sabotage!” Finding Vivian Maier Skilled street photographers—those whose photographs of ordinary street scenes are compelling enough to be thought of as art—are extremely rare. Which is why the discovery of thousands of unprinted negatives taken by the hitherto unknown street photographer Vivian Maier has been such a bombshell. Working in mid-century Chicago, Maier, who died in the complete obscurity that she herself cultivated, had a genius for capturing ordinary people in an extraordinary way. In the years since her voluminous work has been made public, numerous exhibitions have been mounted all over the world, books have been published and Maier has taken a posthumous position on the list of the greatest photographers. The documentary Finding Vivian Maier tells this gripping story.

Where to find the bargains this weekend.

For you, family and friends.

Spring Beers, Summer Hours in Southampton Spring has…sprung? Well, no sense in sitting around waiting for it. We all know that warm weather will eventually arrive, and right now we’ve been handed some extra time to get ready for it. If this ongoing winter has taken a toll on your hair, skin and nails, I’ve got some great suggestions for getting everything back under control. Hair troubles can be fixed in a matter of minutes (10–20 to be exact) with Keratin Complex Infusion Therapy Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioner. It really does smell like vanilla beans, evoking the tropics, and it left my hair shinier and smoother than it has ever been. As someone with thin hair, I was hesitant to use a deep conditioner, but this didn’t weigh my hair down at all. In fact, after using it last night, my hair today feels surprisingly lightweight. Find this and oh-so-much-more at Ricky’s, 50 Main Street in East Hampton. Call 631-329-7588 or visit rickysnyc. com. Are you stubbornly against wearing gloves in spring?

Sag Harbor Restaurant Review: Sen


hen all else seems relatively sleepy on the East End, Sag Harbor still has a vibrant restaurant scene. It drags people out of their homes even on the coldest nights, when gusts of wind seem intolerable, and they stroll in the glow of Main Street as if it were Manhattan. On one such night, after three weeks of back-to-back snowstorms, I had the absolute delight of dining at Sen, the healthy Japanese restaurant I’d heard so much about. My dining partner was my good friend, private chef Jacqueline McKay. The restaurant was busy on a Wednesday night—with couples at tables and groups of friends circled around the central bar and sushi-making station. Taking in the warmth of the low ceiling and the wood all around, we started off with two glasses of Red Satan Akamoah Soju, a Japanese vodka made with 83% sweet potato and 17% rice, served on the rocks, as is customary with such a pure and smooth vodka. With a deep, earthy sweetness, the Soju was unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. The menu offered sake flights, including “Sun”— with tastes of the highest grade of sake—as well as “Moon” and “Sky,” each tailored to the individual’s palate. Amongst “Crafted Cocktails” the Kasai Margarita, made with Shishito pepper-infused tequila, fresh grapefruit, lime and agave sounded especially wonderful and refreshing, but on this particular night I was feeling that spring-is-coming need for total purity; hence the vodka. While you might think that all Japanese restaurants

are healthy, and generally they are, Sen takes it a step the fish to the rice. Sushi and sashimi lovers will further with an incredible selection of vegan dishes, be impressed with the selection. My vegetable roll, like the marinated burdock Gobo Salad, Sesame quite unlike many of the standard avocado-carrotWakame Salad and Ohitashi spinach (amazing!) cucumber types, was composed of shredded daikon, shiitake appetizer, and even denotes Wellness asparagus, cucumber, shiitake, kampyo and avocado. (And it certainly earned the Wellness Foundation’s Foundation-approved dishes on their menu. With so many wonderful-sounding dishes to approval.) My kitchen selection was Panko Tofu, and choose from, we both opted for the Tasting Menu— there are almost no words to describe how satisfying seven small dishes served together in the traditional it was, but I’ll try. The crispy outside layer was paperthin, while the tofu inside was soft, Japanese style. First to arrive were our but not too soft, and, dipped into the soups—Jackie’s Ramen, with egg, and wasabi soy sauce, it was perfection. my Vegetarian Miso. To the side was a Jackie’s Spicy Shimp Tempura was little bowl of chili and sesame powder, unlike any other—almost creamy—and which we were encouraged to sprinkle full of flavor. The bento box-style of on the soup. Doing so, I found my miso dining allowed for each “selection” to to be heavenly; satisfying, warming and be featured, standing out on its own, full of flavor. Of the ramen, a noodle while one can alternate bites, enjoying bowl full of soft-cooked egg, spinach, and experimenting with the different bamboo shoots, pork belly, shiitake, Rum Caramel Carrot Cake flavors. scallion and nori, Jackie advises to We ended on a sweet note with a taste of Mochi definitely “get it with the egg.” To follow, came our bento box-style dinners—each Ice Cream (Green Tea) and Carrot Cake.

An Easy Chicken and Rice Dinner I’m in Miami’s South Beach where my husband and I are enjoying a sojourn from the North. I know we’re lucky to have beaten some of the brutal weather in the Northeast, but I miss my beloved East End. We’re doing some fine and fun dining out and even more dining in. To make life simpler, I’ve enjoyed some excellent take-out. A take-out roast chicken makes dinner in my Miami Beach rental simpler. The challenge is that I’m not in my bright, spacious country kitchen in Water Mill with a 5’ square marble island, professional sixburner range, stainless steel appliances and enough equipment to satisfy any professional chef. While the basics are all here: stove, fridge, dishwasher, there are the limitations to T-Fal cookware. There’s no roasting pan in sight but some pretty good skillets such as Cuisinart; there’s no food processor but there’s a blender and a terrific electric juicer to enjoy those juicy Florida oranges, surprisingly good knives and even a cutting board. Leftover roast chicken can become chicken salad or a chicken sandwich. The carcass can be used to make a simple stock with which I can create a stir fry, as the one I adapted from French-style roast chicken, Poulet au Vinaigre below.

hen it comes to comfort food, there’s no substitute for a big Italian dinner, which is just what you’ll get at Cappelletti in Noyac— unless you’re more in the mood for a light salad or fresh seafood. In addition to everything you’d expect from an Italian restaurant, Cappelletti boasts an extensive menu influenced by the local bounty—like fresh bay scallops—and international fare. The team behind Cappelletti, which opened in 2006, is husband and chef Luigi Tagliasacchi and wife Robin. Luigi got his start in the restaurant industry as a young boy working for his father, Jack, who now owns Il Capuccino in Sag Harbor.  Originally from Florida, with Northern Italian ancestry, Luigi trained in his father’s home country. Robin’s ancestry is Southern Italian, so they have the best of both worlds when it comes to Italian cuisine. Luigi and his father co-owned Il Monastero in East Hampton for nine years prior to Robin and Luigi opening a gourmet takeout market in Sag Harbor in 1993. They sold the market after 13 years and soon opened Cappelletti—putting Luigi back in the business of a sit-down restaurant. There are two dining rooms to choose from at Cappelletti, both decorated with Robin’s artwork. The quieter and more intimate setting is far from the bar, romantically lit, and the walls are covered in charcoal life drawings. The second room is adjacent to the bustling take-out section of Cappelletti. Edison bulbs hanging from the ceiling and jelly jar fixtures on the walls give the room a warm glow, and music fills the air. Old menus paper one wall, which also displays Robin’s graphic design works. Sit at a table

or at the bar for a view of the television and pairing advice from the knowledgeable bartender, Lauren. She can recommend a domestic or international wine to go with any dish. The wide variety of vino is evident by the bottles stacked high behind the full bar. When the bread arrives at the table, it’s clear a wonderful meal is to come. The warm bread is similar to garlic knots, but easy to pull apart into small, tasty bites. The salad options are numerous—11 in total, plus any specials that may be offered—though of special note is the hot artichoke salad with fried artichoke hearts, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and olive oil. Rather than tossed together, the ingredients are kept separate on the plate so diners can try each part individually, then mix it all up in the proportions they will enjoy most. The mozzarella is, of course, made in-house. The prosciutto is incomparable. For an appetizer, one can’t go wrong with the baked clams. Robin says it’s a traditional Italian clam stuffing with a little extra, but she won’t say what—old family secret and all that. Also, check the specials for lobster ravioli, which is handmade and served with sweet butter and asiago and parmesan cheeses. It’s an amazing start to a meal and can also be ordered in a larger portion as an entrée. Diverging from the Italian offerings, the thin-sliced cucumbers in a Thai sesame sauce is tangy and sweet and, as Robin puts it, “fun.” The rack of lamb is lightly rubbed and spiced, allowing the meat to speak for itself, with traditional mint jelly on the side. For steak lovers, the grilled black angus entrée, served with starch and vegetable, is not to be missed. It can be prepared many ways, including with a

delectable brandy crème sauce. The green beans are just firm enough while the mashed potatoes have great texture and wonderful flavor. Seasonally available, the pumpkin ravioli can be topped with alfredo sauce with capers and pistachios, or with clarified butter, asiago and parmesan. Cappelletti’s desserts are delightful twists on Italian favorities. Rather than serving a traditional cannoli, here the cannoli filling goes into a stemmed glass and the shells are used for dipping. The tiramisu is also served in a glass. It is impossible to choose between these two, so bring a friend and share.

Bargains on the East End.

The Perfect Hamptons Summer Rentals How close is it to the beach? Can I move in before Memorial Day weekend? Is there a bedroom for the nanny? If you’re looking for that perfect summer rental in the Hamptons, you naturally have a number of questions in mind. In your quest to land the property that suits all your needs, however, you just might overlook something essential you need to know, whether it’s about who’ll be taking care of the lawn, where’s the nearest four-star restaurant or when you can start to party. With summer rentals all the rage right now, this week our roundtable of local experts answer the query…



What are some key factors that prospective renters should be considering as they look for summer property on the East End? “When you find the home you desire, you should inquire about the following items: What are the anticipated bills for the summer rental, i.e. grass cutting, pool maintenance etc.; if there is a show clause, make sure you receive at least 24 hours notice of the appointment and not before 12 noon; a phone list of providers and maintenance people; any

“Tenants who live in big highrisers in NYC are often shocked to learn that their summer rental does not have a superintendent on stand-by to fix their every complaint about the property (i.e. the toilet running). So, if you aren’t a do-it-yourselfer, be sure to either only rent in a condo/co-op that has “Does it have enough room for a superintendent and services, or you for sleeping/entertaining? Rent your home by the sea be sure to include in the lease that How much time will you spend in the landlord is responsible to make the home? If you and guests come out and stay at poolside and eat at home every night, repairs, defining what repairs are covered and how then the home is probably more important than the fast that they must be made. If you plan on having friends over, or even parties, location. Explain your usage and wants to your realtor as in depth as possible—forgetting to mention a nanny you may want to check the local Town/Village Code or that grandma can’t do stairs or that you have four for noise ordinances (time when you can have music Irish Wolfhounds will make it a longer process.”—Maz on outside) and rules for on-street parking. Yet the most important thing for a tenant when Crotty, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson, Nest Seekers selecting property is to understand the House Rules International under the lease—don’t just presume that something “The advice I would give to prospective renters should happen. The lease either requires it or it is to look and find what you like earlier rather than doesn’t. So, it is very important for the tenant to read later. A lot of renters think they can get a good deal if the lease and understand its every requirement on they wait until the last minute. What happens is, they both the tenant and the landlord, as a summer rental might get a good deal on something that comes close should not end in a lawsuit, but instead in a renewal to what they really wanted but not quite. What would for the next season.”—Andrew Lieb, Esq.

East End Celebrity Real Estate News and Notes Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, star of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City,” bought a waterfront home in Sag Harbor. The 2,500-squarefoot house, built in 1835, reportedly sold for $3.1 million.
