On Thursday, October 27, Long Island’s elite came out to celebrate the official grand opening of Porsche of South Shore. Acquired in 2014, the Freeport showroom, which has now tripled in size, has been transformed into a state of the art facility featuring modern designs and unparalleled technology.
Porsche of South Shore invited guests mid-morning for the official ribbon cutting ceremony with the Mayor of Freeport, Robert T. Kennedy, and the Chamber of Commerce to officially announce the opening of Porsche South Shore to the residents of Freeport, Long Island. Following the ribbon cutting a light lunch was served to all guests by local restaurant, Tony Cuban Cucina.
Macarons are landing in the Hamptons this summer! I am a loyal fan of macarons, the bright photogenic colors and presentation, aroma, delicate flavors, every aspect. As stated in a previous post, I choose to enjoy mine straight from the box like Oreos with a cuppa. I was delighted to be introduced to the founder of The Bearded Baker, Scott Krevat, by the Christine Clemens, the Founder and Head Chef of the catering company, Hamptons Haute.
Krevat, a 2013 graduate from New York University where he studied Biochemistry founded his macaron company soon after he graduated. “I knew I always wanted to start a business every since I was a little kid,” explains Krevat. “I was enterprising candy on the playground and cards for money. I knew I didn’t want to go into science and work in a lab, so I really wanted to make something. I found out about macarons, received a box as a gift from my mom, and as I was about to head home, I ate the entire box in the car. “Why haven’t I had one of these before?”
Begin your day’s venture with a bottle of sweetened (or unsweetened) coffee by Sail Away Coffee Co. Their coffee is sourced from around the globe including Costa Rica, Kenya, and Ethiopia. I am drawn to cold brew coffee as it is full-bodied, not watery, and already chilled so ice is not necessary. Grab your bottle in the morning, and you are good to start your day.
The company’s design and packaging is very rustic, comforting, and charming. It reminds me of camping deep in the heart of Maine when I was in grade school. Their handmade coaster compliments our antique dining room table perfectly. I had a guest over the other day and they had inquired about where I got it, so I then proceeded to tell them about this newly discovered coffee company. In addition to the cold brew coffee, I received a bag of their signature medium/dark roasted coffee: Captain’s Blend. It was very flavorful and was a great “perk” to jumpstart my day. I had it over ice with a splash of whole milk, no sweetener.
On a Thursday a couple of weeks back, we took a trip up the island to visit family in Nassau County, Long Island. During our visit, my family took us to a restaurant they love to frequent called Chadwicks for their excellent service and delicious lunches and dinners. Right when we walked in, they were very accommodating and allowed us to bring the stroller inside so our daughter could be next to us. Inside, there are two dining areas with square and round tables, in addition to a small amount of outdoor seating underneath umbrellas. The restaurant is located directly across from the Rockville Centre train station, perfect for commuters and visitors arriving in the afternoon or evening.
For lunch, they have an excellent Power Lunch menu that offers discounted sandwiches (sandwich/soup/salad combo, any two) in addition to daily specials such as Lobster Fest until August 31st, Wine Down Wednesdays (half priced bottles), and Prime Rib Saturday.
