Food Events

Hi everyone,

I know, I know, I've been mega inactive. But I swear I had good reasons.

Anyhow enough of that. Onto the interesting stuff.

I just added a couple of really cool links for Restaurant Weeks and other events around Long Island so here's the breakdown.

Starting things off is our first event in the fall. The Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities is hosting an Apple Festival on September 20th in East Setauket. There will be apples, a food historian and hay rides. Go to their site for more information: SPLIA News

Bank of America and Newsday are behind the Oyster Festival, October 17-18. There will be seafood, music and activities and, best of all, all proceeds go to benefit non-profits.

DineHuntington is the Huntington Restaurant Week. This year it will be running October 12-23 and forty local restaurants are already signed up. Try a three course prix fix meal at any of them for only $24.95

Long Island Restaurant Week kicks off about two weeks later. November 1-8, head to Nassau, Suffolk or the East End to try out one of the many restaurants participating in the three course prix fix $24.95 deal.

In the spring, another Restaurant Week hits Long Island. The Hamptons will be hosting it March 21-28 so make the drive to try out a trendy new place or go back to an old haunt for that prix fix three course meal for $24.95

Finally, in late June, Mattitucks Lions Club is hosting the 55th Strawberry Festival. Enjoy all kinds of delicious berry treats, various rides and even live music.

That's all I got for now. So go forth and explore!
