Most Excellent Inn
    The votes are in, and Baker House 1650 on Main Street in East Hampton has been named the “most excellent inn” in the United States and Canada by Condé Nast Johansens international luxury travel guides. It is the third time that Baker House 1650 has been so named.
    The awards, in 28 categories, are given to luxury properties throughout the Americas, the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Caribbean and come from readers of the guides, hotel guests, and the Condé Nast Johansens team of inspectors.

Plum TV Auction
    Plum TV, which has broadcast on a cable channel here and in seven other resort markets in the country, will have its day in court on Monday. The company, which recently declared bankruptcy, has a hearing scheduled in federal bankruptcy court for the Southern District of New York to consider auction procedures for the sale of its assets.
    The court has already approved a $250,000 interim loan to be used for ongoing operations. If the auction is approved, it is expected to be held on March 1. Those interested can call Scott Williams, Plum’s chief restructuring officer, at 914-320-5900.
