The East Hampton Town Board will hold a hearing tonight on a proposal to hand the oversight of buildings on active farmland, such as temporary greenhouses or “hoop houses,” and farmstands, to the town architectural review board, eliminating the need to go through town planning board site plan review before a building permit is issued. The hearing begins at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
Oktoberfest continues at Rowdy Hall in East Hampton, with a special featuring weinerschnitzel on the menu today and tomorrow. Starting Saturday, the $24 Oktoberfest prix fixe dinner menu will feature kassler rippchen — smoked pork chops — with braised red cabbage and house-made applesauce, plus a Black Forest trifle for dessert. The special Oktoberfest dessert is available a la carte as well. The restaurant’s German-style celebration, which includes beer specials, will conclude at the end of next week.
