Happy weekend! We had every intention of making this a healthful dispatch…and then, we got distracted (as one does) by donuts. The new Grindstone Coffee & Donuts in Sag Habor has been testing out its recipes — classic glaze, poppyseed, strawberry shortcake, pictured above — ahead of its grand opening…which has been pushed to the beginning of July. Which, really, is probably best for all of our waistlines. The shop at 7A Main Street, owned by Kyle Shanahan and Anna Coffman, will feature buttery brioche-style donuts.
Wait a minute, you CAN skip the race
Yesterday, in a fit of healthfulness, we reported that NO you slackers, you cannot skip the actual Shelter Island 10K (which starts Saturday at 5:30 p.m.) and just attend the post-race party. But it turns out that yes, you CAN crash the post-party, even if you did not prove your athletic prowess by running 6.2 miles up and down the hills of Shelter Island, dammit. That is the official word from race representatives (well, slightly embellished by us). So…if for some unknown reason you are looking for something to do Saturday night that involves a lot of sweaty, tired and hopefully (by that time) drunk runners, you are cordially invited to attend the Official 10k After Party “Revelry on the Rock” at the Island Boatyard/Salt Restaurant, at a cost of $10 per non-runner. And no, you can not borrow our finisher’s medal to make it look like you actually ran the race. Loser.
This just in: Tchaikovsky may be played at Sag Harbor Sidewalk Sale
We have what we call in the news business a developing situation, which you’ll only read about on the Hampton Bee: Apparently, there will be live, classical music serenading the shoppers at the “Whale of a Sale” sidewalk sale (and annual Father’s Day Arts & Crafts Fair) in Sag Harbor this coming weekend, an anonymous source tells us. Both events run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. If you wish to hear the music — which also could be Mozart, Bach or Strauss (details are still sketchy) — then make sure to patronize the vendors closest to Marine Park. More than 60 artists and crafters will be there, and many will be selling gifts for dad.
On tap for the weekend
Navy Beach restaurant will host a fundraiser for the Navy SEAL Foundation on Saturday, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. The one-and-only Nancy Atlas, who recently serenaded the East Hampton Town Board in Montauk on behalf of all disgruntled musicians (kudos, Nancy!), is scheduled to perform. We think the SEALs would appreciate her spunk. Details here.
Reggae Sundays are back at East Hampton Point, which some might call the jewel of Springs. What no one disputes: The sunsets are truly spectacular. Watch one while listening to reggae on the Point’s deck.
We promised something healthy, and we’re finally getting to it: Celebrity trainer Taryn Toomey is leaving her Tribeca studio behind to teach “The Class” (a cross between boot camp and yoga) at Surf Lodge this coming Saturday, 10 a.m. Sign-up here. If you miss it, you can try again next Saturday at 9 a.m. “Throughout the entire class, your heart is pumping, your muscles are screaming and change is happening,” she says. We sure as hell won’t be there. Tell us how it was.
Social Media Quote of the Day
“Weekend fun with Aston,” LuAnn de Lesseps of Real Housewives fame posting this ridiculous (and furry) photo to Twitter. We think Aston is the name of the dog, not the classic Mercedes.
