Weekend Bee: Green (Kinda) in the Forecast. Goodbye, Snowdrops. Hello, Été & EMP

Happy snowy Friday! Well, fiddlesticks. Turns out we have a little more winter to deal with. Fortunately, gentle readers, we have St. Patrick’s Day festivities to bring back the green. If you’re warm enough to leave your house tomorrow, head to the annual Am O’Gansett Parade, pictured above, which should take up approximately 15 minutes of your day. (If you order a toasted bagel at Jack’s, you might miss it.) The self-proclaimed world’s shortest parade starts at noon, followed by face painting at the library.

Meanwhile, the slightly rowdier Westhampton Beach St. Patrick’s Day Parade is also gearing up for a noon start on Saturday. If you need temptation, here’s an Instagram photo (shared excitedly by Hamptons Baby Gear) of the parade’s green line…

And in case you’re wondering, the always-impressive, somewhat-feared Montauk Friends of Erin Parade isn’t until Sunday, March 26. Which we thought odd, considering the actual holiday is March 17….but given weather conditions, Montauk is looking pretty brilliant. Well-played, Friends of Erin.

Did someone say the French word for summer?

Été, été, été! We cannot wait for summer, in any language. Bistro Été, the French popup restaurant that occupied the yellow roadside farmhouse in Water Mill last season, has a new permanent location: the former Muse restaurant in The Mill Center. “We spent the winter scouting out a year round permanent location and we found one,” say Arie and Liz Pavlou, the husband-and-wife team behind the eatery, in this Facebook post. “We are hoping to welcome everyone into our new home shortly after Easter.”

Speaking of popups…

Moby’s, we hardly knew ye. Eleven Madison Park, the high-end Manhattan haunt, will take over the former Moby’s in East Hampton in late June, according to Newsday, a few weeks after its city space closes for renovation. The seasonal popup will go by the name EMP Summer House.

On tap for the weekend

Social Media Quote of the Day

“These snowdrops are going to meet snow.” — East Hampton Star, sounding rather dire as it announced a winter storm warning with this charming Instagram photo of soon-to-be-frozen flowers. Spring hopes, dashed.
