Weekend Bee: Zima Is Back. Plus, Chili, Architects & Mahershala Ali

#TGIF! Ah, we like this time of year. The buds are budding, the peepers will soon be peeping, and “Help Wanted” signs are springing up in all the local stores, like Juice Press in Bridgehampton, pictured above. This is also the time where you might show your Immigrant pride by wearing this t-shirt, made by small business Road 22. (We’re not paid to say that, we just like the shirt.) Now’s also a fine time to look for a summer rental. Villa Maria in Water Mill is available for $34,700 a night, according to this Condé Nast Traveler story about the OneFineStay app, which now features Hamptons luxury rentals. The good news is you can invite about 20 of your closest friends to stay with you.

Zima is finally making a comeback…

We’re actually not kidding: The clear boozy drink that presaged the Friends era will soon be back on store shelves (for reasons unknown, if you ask us). We’re readying our 90s mix tape, featuring Toad the Wet Sprocket and Better Than Ezra. And in unrelated Zima news, Kate Meuth of Neo-Political Cowgirls is organizing a family-friendly scavenger hunt called “ZIMA!” on the Montauk Green this Saturday, starting at 2 pm. The word “zima” is apparently the Polish word for winter.

We hear, we hear, we hear…

That Larry Hoffman, the pride of Dune Road and East Quogue in general, is being honored May 10 as the 2017 Businessperson of the Year by the Southampton Business Alliance. (He’s also president of the Southampton Business Alliance, but we’re sure that’s just a coincidence). We commend Larry for the fabulous sunsets he organizes at Dockers Waterside Restaurant & Marina, the business he has owned since Zima was popular.

On tap for the weekend…

  • It’s official: Architects like to talk about themselves (jk, architects!) The Parrish Museum in Water Mill is beginning a new series called “Inter-Sections: The Architect in Conversation” beginning tonight at 6 p.m. with Scott Cohen, who recently designed the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. We suggest buying a glass of rosé at the café and drinking every time the word “geopolitical” is used…
  • Can you make mine extra spicy? The Amagansett Presbyterian Church Annual Soup & Chili Supper will be held this Saturday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at Scoville Hall…
  • Did someone say popup art gallery? Folioeast presents the fourth installment of its well-received Winter Salon series at Malia Mills in East Hampton, with artists Mark Webber, Francine Fleischer, Saskia Friedrich, and Jeremy Grosvenor. Opening reception Saturday, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m…
  • And not to be undone, ArtUnprimed,  the popup art gallery from Casey Dalene at Addo in Sag Harbor, presents the next installment of its winter series, this one titled “Terra.” Opening reception Saturday, 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. There will be beer…
  • There is now no need to stay at home, listening to your Kenny G collection. Osteria Salina in Wainscott, where the fireplace is always ON (according to its roadside billboard), will present An Evening of Jazz, with Sterling Bailey on saxophone, 8 p.m. on Saturday…
  • We’re practicing our triple toe loop. Buckskill Winter Club hosts its sixth annual Skate-A-Thon on Saunday, starting at 3 p.m. Proceeds benefit Katy’s Courage
  • We’ll take baguettes over ice sculptures any day. Blue Duck in Riverhead is hosting Winterfest on Sunday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., with a dessert and wine pairing, plus poetry from Susan Dingle and Maggie Bloomfield…

Social Media Quote of the Day

“Did you know Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner Mahershala Ali attended last summer’s Hamptons International Film Festival?” — Dan’s Papers, doing a little namedropping as it posted this photo to Instagram. We’ll always have Nick & Toni’s, Mahershala.
