Amagansett Less Marvelous

After 15 years in business, the Mary’s Marvelous store in Amagansett has closed. Mary Schoenlein, the owner of the shop and another in East Hampton, announced the intention to close the store some time ago, and it was shuttered this week. In a note to customers, Ms. Schoenlein thanked them for their support and said it was with “sadness and regret” that she and her staff were leaving Amagansett. The shop, which serves prepared foods, pastries, takeout sandwiches, salads, and more, coffee and tea, etc., will continue to do business on Newtown Lane in East Hampton.


At East Hampton Point

At East Hampton Point, Monday is industry night at the bar, with small bites for $5 and half-price drinks. Dinner will be served this month on Thursday through Sunday nights, and lunch will be served starting at noon on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Reggae music has returned on Sunday nights from 6 to 9 p.m. 


Reception at Inn

The Bridgehampton Inn will serve small bites, wine, and beer at a reception this evening from 5 to 7 to celebrate “Sea Rakes,” an exhibit of photographs by Lindsay Morris that will be on view throughout the summer. 

Country Night

Tuesday night is now country night at the Springs Tavern. Besides a light bar menu, with $5 hot dogs, pizza slices, and more, there will be live music by the Spaghetti Westerners at 9 p.m. Before the music, beginning at 8, there will be a free class in line dancing. Sweet Action beers and shots of Jack Daniels will be offered for $4. The Springs Tavern is open daily, but offers its dinner menu from 4 to 10 p.m. on Thursdays through Mondays. 


Healthy Eating

Stefanie Sacks, a “culinary nutritionist” and the author of “What the Fork Are You Eating,” has introduced Reboot Food 4 Grown Ups. To begin on June 26, the program is a series of classes that will show people how to “recognize, reshape, and re-nourish” their eating habits. The sessions, limited to 12 students, will focus on ingredient choice, culinary techniques for healthy food preparation, and how to successfully achieve a “food reboot.” They will take place at Scoville Hall in Amagansett. The cost is $150 per session, or $400 for the series of four, which includes recipes and an apron. The first class, later this month, will focus on breakfast. It will be followed with a session on lunch on July 3; dinner on July 10, and a July 17 session on healthy snacks and dessert.
