Weekend Bee: Welcome, Cove Hollow. Plus, Patrick McEnroe & Farmers Markets

(Want to get the Daily Bee delivered to your Inbox? Sign up here.)

#TGIF. Why, hello Cove Hollow Tavern, pictured above, a newcomer to East Hampton this season (in the former Cafe Max space, which closed last fall after 25 years). The new eatery is an outpost of Shelter Island’s Vine Street Cafe. We’ll start saving up to go there now. Bonus: No ferry ride involved. We hear it’s opening in early June.

You remember him from doubles tennis…

Former tennis pro Patrick McEnroe will be overseeing tennis training this summer at Sportime in Amagansett — so now might be an excellent time to sign up for lessons. He will also be “in residence” during the month of August at Sportime, perhaps sleeping in a hammock aside the courts (not really). Sportime CEO Claude Okin says the whole thing is “awesome.” When not in the Hamptons, McEnroe is co-director of his bro’s John McEnroe Tennis Academy…

Quick takes…

Just like that, the East Hampton farmers market (the one in Nick & Toni’s parking lot, which is better than it sounds) is back. It opens today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, two weeks earlier than usual…

Things that make us proud to be from New York State: Governor Cuomo has announced the “Taste NY Inaugural Craft Beer Challenge,” where New Yorkers can vote for their favorite New York craft brewery. We see some familiar names on this list, including Southampton Publick House and Montauk Brewing Co…

For those who dig ladies undergarments: “The Reconstructed Bra” Fashion Show & Auction (benefitting Lucia’s Angels and the Coalition for Women’s Cancers at Southampton Hospital) will be next Thursday, May 18, at Southampton Social Club…

Dan’s Papers plans a rosé soirée (we’re glad we finally figured out how to type accent marks) at the Southampton Arts Center over Memorial Day weekend to kick off Summer 2017. We hope White Girl Rosé will be served…

On tap for the weekend…

  • Studio 3, the Bridgehampton dance studio, presents “The Notes She Wrote,” a tribute to women composers — rather shockingly, we actually can’t think of one — danced by its young students on Friday and Saturday, at Southampton High School. Details here.
  • Tripoli Gallery in Southampton will open artist Benjamin Keating’s debut solo exhibition, “On View,” featuring solid-metal maquettes, on Saturday, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. A “maquette” is a preliminary model of a sculpture. We didn’t know that either. As always, we hope wine and cheese is served….
  • Townline BBQ in Sagaponack will have live music tonight from Lynn Blue Band,  6 p.m to 9 p.m., no cover. Happy hour menu includes $3 warm pretzels with mustard. Yum…

Not on tap for the weekend…

The folks at LongHouse Reserve are not, apparently, “rain or shine” types and have postponed Family Day activities, originally scheduled for this Saturday, to May 27. What’s wrong with Buckeyballs in the rain?!

Social Media Quote of the Day

“Awesome piece for the boys room or man cave.” — Long Island scupltors Nick and Nancy Groudas, posting this photo to Instagram of a table made from an Allis-Chalmers tractor hood. More alluring than John Deere.
