Daily Bee: Jack’s Takes Sag Harbor. Slick Will Take Bay Street. Plus, Kiwis!

Happy Monday! We begin the week with the exciting news that Jack’s Stir Brew, the cosmic brewhouse in Amagansett (pictured above) where coffee nirvana happens, is opening a location in Sag Harbor. This is important news to Hampton Bee readers, because we doubt many of these updates would happen without Jack’s coffee. Staffers tell us that the newest Jack’s — which joins other locations, including five in Manhattan — will *possibly* be open in May. The location is the former Juicy Naam at 51 Division Street. Which also provides us with a non-scientific market commentary: Juice bars are fleeting, while coffee houses are forever.

Jack’s, which was founded in 2003 by Jack Mazzola, is also hiring, so if you happen to be a job-seeking store manager, shift lead, barista or cashier, now’s a good time to brush up on shade-grown coffee. Do not throw shade at the shade-grown coffee.

Go ask Alice…

OK, we don’t sing, but if we could, we’d definitely be at this audition: Bay Street Theater is seeking vocalists to sing in the style of Grace Slick (!) and Marty Balin for a 30-minute set featuring Jefferson Airplane’s greatest hits, backed by a full band. Stop whatever you are doing right now and listen to this, one of the greatest hits of the 1980s. Somebody’s always playing corporation games, people. Although hang on, it appears Bay Street is going with more of a ’60s hippie vibe. Aspiring songsters, the casting call notes, should come prepared to sing “White Rabbit” (here’s Slick singing it at Woodstock) and “Somebody to Love.” Right on.

Auditions will be held this Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. by appointment at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. Apparently, Bay Street is taking this 60s thing seriously. The theater adds (as a postscript) that it’s also looking for a female vocalist who can sing “in the style of Peggy Lee, Dinah Washington, Julie London, Keely Smith (etc)” and a “male vocalist to sing in the style of Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Louis Prima, Lou Rawls (etc).” Cool. Shouldn’t be hard to find.

Quick takes…

Social Media Quote of the Day

“It’s a nacho supremo kind of day” — La Fondita Mexican restaurant, as it posted this photo to Facebook. Isn’t it always a nacho supremo kind of day?
