Happy Hump Day! ‘Tis the season of peeps. And peeping. In fact, Larry Penny in the East Hampton Star informs us that spring peepers, a small frog whose chirp is a harbinger of spring, is peeping away. Excellent. Is there no better a reason, we ask ourselves, to pour a glass of rosé? Yes, we actually do have a better reason: It is Easter this weekend. And Pope Francis, already popular on Twitter, has joined Instagram. Let’s raise a toast to the Hippest Pontiff Ever. Meanwhile, if you’re looking to celebrate Easter in the Hamptons, we highlight a few options:
- Zum Schneider in Montauk is kicking off the holiday weekend with a special fish-only Good Friday dinner, with fried, broiled or pan-seared fish and scallops.
- Montauk Yacht Club, pictured above, is all hopped up (forgive us) about Easter. If you’re an overnight guest, you can arrange for a large terrifying bunny to visit your child at bedtime (perhaps this is a cuter idea than it initially sounds). But even more fun: Your little one can take part in an Easter egg hunt and crafts on Sunday, while you sip on refreshments.
- The Maidstone’s Living Room restaurant in East Hampton is having an all-day Easter brunch (we like their style), both Saturday and Sunday.
- A bit farther afield, The Petulant Wino in Aquebogue invites all to “celebrate Easter at the Wino” with Sunday brunch that begins at 10:30 a.m. or a dinner that begins at 2:30 p.m. A featured item is “Eggs Bunny-dict” (of course). Menus here.
- Dockers Waterside in East Quogue, which is rumored to be launching cigar dinners this season, will keep things traditional with an Easter brunch on Sunday. RSVP for a seating at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. or 3 p.m.
- Bucking the brunch trend, 1770 House in East Hampton will host an Easter dinner Sunday, starting at 5 p.m., featuring sweet pea soup with crab, tarragon and crisp speck (yum!) and lamb chops.
- Also bucking the brunch trend, New Moon Cafe in East Quogue is starting even earlier in the day with Easter breakfast at 9 a.m. New Moon also wishes everyone a #hoppyeaster.
That sophomore is CEO material
If you’re sick of millennials and their work ethic (generally speaking: entitled, needy, self-centered), then here’s an idea: Go even younger with your work force. East Hampton High School will host a job fair on March 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at which you can hopefully discover a talented student or graduating senior looking for a summer job or regular employment. If you want to set up a table at such fair, then act now — deadline is today. Email Debbie Mansir at email@example.com with your contact info, positions available and dates that help is needed.
The Watermill Center will host a Spring Open House this Saturday, featuring a guided tour of its building, grounds, gardens, art collection and study library…The Hampton Jitney is offering a special package for opening day (April 4) at Yankee Stadium, with transportation to the Bronx, plus a ticket to watch the Yanks take on the Houston Astros, $205 per person. All-you-can-eat dining in the stadium’s Audi Club (fancy!) is included….Serafina restaurant in East Hampton will be re-opening Friday after a winter break.
Social Media Quote of the Day
“That’s right: Your annoying, eye-rolling, Instagram-addicted intern is lying to you and wants to beat you up.” — Ted Scofield, author of Eat What You Kill, a novel partly based in the Hamptons, posting an excerpt to Facebook from his 2-part series on greed. Well, so much for hiring young people.
