Theatre Review: “Westside Story” By Roy Bradbrook. Those electrifying first few moments when the curtain rose on the open- ing night of the new Gateway Playhouse sea- son and the stage slowly filled with teenagers bent on establishing their ownership of a small, seedy part of New York over a rival gang’s claim quickly confirmed why West Side Story will always be considered one of the truly great musicals of all time. Of course, that exception- al combination of Leonard Bernstein’s music, Stephen Sondheim’s lyrics, Arthur Laurents’ book and the choreography of Jerome Robbins should always produce an exceptional result. However, without very high standards of indi- vidual artists and great direction, it will never come to life in the way that its creators intend- ed. High marks to the Gateway team who cast and staged this production, especially Carlos Encinias, who not only directed but also is the company’s choreographer. Gateway produc- tions only have a two-week rehearsal time and it was amazing to see this talented group of artists as they performed Robbins’ demanding choreography with great precision and drive. The story, based on Romeo and Juliet, is timeless and works as well set on the mean streets of New York in the ‘50s as it did in medieval Verona. Here the two star- crossed lovers are Puerto Rican-born Maria, beauti- fully portrayed by Alexandra Zorn, and American-born Tony, played by Brent Michael Diroma. They have true chemistry between them throughout the show, which lifts the total experience to one where you empathize deeply with their youthful hopes knowing that they will never be realized. Both are great looking and have strong, melodious voices that bring the most out of wonderful songs such as the haunting duets “Tonight,” “One Hand. One Heart” and “Somewhere.” The gang leaders of the Jets and the Sharks, Kit Treece as Riff and Dennis Kenney as Bernardo, work well in showing the antipathy of the two groups and, at the same time, their vulnerability due to their immaturity. Remember this was a time when disputes were not settled with AK-47s but mostly with fists, stones or knives. The thought of a gun raises horror with many of the gang members. The show has several moments of high com- edy in which Sondheim’s satirical lyrics expounding the social woes of the time are given full play. Manoly Farrell plays the sassy, sexy Anita, Bernardo’s girl, and she almost steals the show with her rendition of “America,” recalling Rita Moreno’s film version of the role. Another comedic high point is when the Jets’ members perform “Gee Officer Krupke.” This is Sondheim at his satirical best lampooning society’s take on the causes of juvenile delinquency. The only problem with this song is its placing in the show, where it almost is a case of bathos after a time of high drama and tension—it always seems that it would fit better in the context of the first act’s numbers. The entire cast and orchestra are to be com- mended for setting such a high standard for the season’s opener…a season when Gateway has become a nonprofit organization under the title of The Performing Arts Center of Suffolk County at Gateway Playhouse. It is increasingly difficult to meet budgets through ticket sales, so this move will enable Gateway to look for sponsorship at all levels, from regulars who love this theatre and its productions, to companies and corporations that want to invest in local arts. Gateway has survived through the good work of the Allan family for more than 60 years and hopefully, the new structure will ensure it a long future.

  • Art, a Farmers Market and TurtlesBy Ana Nieto and Ivo Tomasini

    On May 22 we and several local East Enderswere invited on an enlightening tour of theWatermill Center, as part of a series of encoun-ters to brainstorm the creation of a new projectcalled The Market, a concept created by artistresident Keil Borrman, which aims to put togeth-er a farmers market with art and artists.Borrman wants the creation of The Market tocome to fruition based on the collaboration fromthe local community of designers, farmers,artists, or anyone else who is interested in partic-ipating. A few of the guests that I personallyknew included Scott Chaskey (farmer and poet),Martine Abitbol (professional baker), Bennet

    Konesni (farmer and musi-cian), and Dr. Michael Clarjen-Arconada, (practitioner ofNatural Biological Medicine).

    After the tour we had theopportunity to listen to a briefexplanation of Keils project,followed by lunch, which con-sisted of an exquisite leg of lamb brought in froman upstate farm and cooked by Borrman himself.During lunch attendees broke away into groupsto explore ideas for The Market in three cate-gories: design, function, and community out-reach.

    If you are interested in this project, contact

    Keil at [email protected] Watermill takes place on

    August 14, 3-6 p.m. Admission is freeand open to the public. Reservationsare not required. More information isavailable at watermillcenter.org.

    Next, we celebrated World TurtleDay at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge. This wonder-ful setting, overlooking Old Ice Pond, is sur-rounded by live tortoises and turtles of all sizesand shapes. The director of the center gave theattendees a talk about the anatomy of turtles,their likes and dislikes, and warned the childrenwho were present about the dangers of snappingturtles, among other things.

    People love having turtles as pets becausetheyre so prehistoric, yet they may turn somepeople off due to the fact that some can outlivetheir owners, and because they need a lot of care.There are many different types of turtles, fromthe local box variety, to red sliders, and to thegiant green sea turtles. They all share some com-mon characteristics. For instance, did you knowthat they all have 13 scoops (square-like pat-terns) on their shell, or that they all like lots ofheat, or that some can live longer than others (atortoise can live up to 100 years while a red-eyedslider can live up to 40 or more)?Some important tips:

    What do you do if you find a turtle cross-ing the road? Ideally, dont move or takehim/her away. Beware of touching a snappingturtle! However, if a box turtle is in the middleof a busy street, take note of the direction itsgoing in and carefully transport it to the side ofthe road. Turtles are used to living in the sameplace for many years and they can die from sim-ply being removed from their natural environ-ment. Even more, there is a possibility that theyhave laid eggs around that area that they willlose.

    Can you leave a non-native turtle in thewild? It is better not to because some turtles canget aggressive if they are not in their naturalenvironment.

    Can you pet a water turtle? It is best not toas they swim in the water and are likely to havesalmonella.

    How can I help turtles? Use less plasticbecause this waste is ending up in the water. Orbetter yet, stop buying drinks that come in plas-tic bottles and reduce your use of plastic bags.

    Visit quoguewildliferefuge.org if you are inter-ested in sponsoring or adopting a turtle.

    You may also get involved locally in otherareas. Stay tuned for the next CommunityDiscussion Event (a true exercise in real democ-racy): Transparency-Accountability in OpenGovernment. The next discussion will be focusedon Progressive Water Pollution and PervasiveGroundwater Contamination, preceded by a freescreening of Tapped, a documentary about thewater bottling industry. The event will be heldsometime in late June. Organized andCoordinated by the East End Community ActionTeam for Open Government and Turtle ShellHealth, helping to make the understanding ofthe natural healing approach much more acces-sible to everyone.

  • That Summer Music that Changed it AllSummer is party time andsummer is here!

    Now that technology provides easy access tomusic of every spot and stripe, how do youchoose what to play when you play? Below aresome suggestions from the Dans Papers staff.We work and play hard. Enjoy!

    For Hamptons Epicure Columnist andDans Papers Sections Editor Stacy Dermont,summer memories often involve riding in theback of a pickup truck with the radio blaring.Whether going to a swimming hole, chickenbarbeque or tractor pull, Creedence is in order.Specifically, Creedence Clearwater Revivalshit singles, Lookin Out My Back Door, GreenRiver, Born on the Bayou, and Bad MoonRising. Of course David Bowie is never out ofplace at a party. Young Americans, GoldenYears, and Lets Dance can really get themirror ball rolling.

    Dans Editorial Intern Alexandra Andreassenwrites, The golden sunshine, cruising aroundthe Hamptons with the wind blowing throughmy hair, and a great song on the radiothat isthe essence of summer to me. The song thatmost reminds me of summer is I Gotta Feelingby the Black Eyed Peas from their album TheE.N.D. (Energy Never Dies). It was very popularin 2009, which was the first summer that I hadmy drivers license. Every time I hear thatsong, it conjures up memories of my newfoundfreedom, driving around with my younger sis-ter and friends in tow. It seemed like wheneverI got in the car that song was on the radio, andwe sang along every time we heard it. No mat-ter if I was going to Coopers Beach or to mysummer job, it was exhilarating to finally beable to get around on my own. Couple that withthe fun of the season, and it was one to remem-ber. I Gotta Feeling brings me back to thisexcitement, spending time with my bestfriends, and all the pleasures of a summer inthe Hamptons.

    Dans Sales Manager Lori Berger is alwaysup for a good rock n roll song. She hooks herSirius portable to her stereo, turns on her out-side speakers, and is the hostess with themostest to the sounds of the 60s...TommyJames Mony Mony, The Monkees Last Trainto Clarksville, Lulus To Sir with Love,Petula Clarks Downtown. Oh yeah.

    Dans Editorial Intern Jacqueline Duda saysthat laid back, carefree living is what the sum-mer months are meant for. Spending time onthe beach soaking in the sun. Not having toworry about focusing on schoolwork and otheracademic and non-academic stressors that areaccompanied by the cooler and less free-feelingmonths throughout the year. The epitome ofthis for myself is demonstrated through coun-try music, and more specifically Keith UrbansGolden Road album released in 2002. Growingup, country music always went hand in handwith the summertime lifestyle. Driving aroundwith the windows down, my Dad at the wheellistening to country all-stars. When it came tothe summer of 2007, the first summer I wasable drive, playing country music through thespeakers was a given. Golden Road became afavorite with the array of catchy tunes that,without fail, put a smile on my face. The album

    is a symbol of freedom and an easygoing time oflife. Anytime a song from the album plays Icant help but take a deep breath and reminisceon that teenage summer.

    When out on the her boat, Dans PapersAssistant to the Publisher and EventsCoordinator, Ellen Dioguardi, likes to listen toSteely Dans greatest hits and Squeeze (espe-cially Pulling Mussels from a Shell) whilereading a book or Frank Sinatra (the NelsonRiddle arrangements) such as Fly Me to theMoon or All of Me. Or anything with CountBasie playing piano, when the fish arent bit-ing and her husband wants to dance. The fish

    seem to prefer the radio to be tuned toNational Public Radios comedy shows (every-ones a music critic). Around the house Ellenadmits the most recent trend has been to letiTunes Genius look at the very eclectic(Sinatra and Sarah Vaughn to Elvis Costello toEric Clapton and beyond) mixture of tunesalready downloaded to Ellens computer andmake suggestions. Pandora is also a newfavorite app. Mixing it up seems to be themusical rule in this household and as onefriend commented after a party at Ellenshouse, You never know what music is going tocome out of that stereo.

  • How Bout a Good Beach Read?Beach books used to be in high demand here

    in the Hamptons. You needed a few long books toget you through all that sunbathing. Sunbathingis not so much in vogue anymore but beach booksare more popular than ever thanks to wirelessreading devices such as Kindle.

    Since you can now read just about any book,anywhere, what will it be?

    Dans Papers Hamptons Epicure columnistStacy Dermont has two solid suggestions:Jacques Pepins 2003 bestselling memoir TheApprentice: My Life in the Kitchen and HermanMelvilles 1851 classic Moby Dick.

    Pepins memoir includes some hilarious andtelling Hamptons misadventures. I laugh outloud every time I think of Pepin and PierreFraney in a boat off Springs, attempting to feedlobsters a bunch of calves heads. Trust me, itsfunnier than it sounds and anyway, its worthreading this book just to revisit Pepins food-cen-tric upbringing in WWII-era France.

    Moby Dick is no longer the Moby Dick you hadto read in high school. It turns out that when youget older and read for pleasure, Moby Dick con-tains some really funny scenarios like the townthat eats nothing but chowder all day. Any bookthat refers to Sag Harbor as Sin City is worth ago and, hey, who couldnt use a littlemoremoby in their life?

    Editorial Intern Marissa Pollina suggests:The memoir, An Italian Affair, by Laura Fraser,is definitely one of my favorite summer novels.This memoir is about Lauras mid-life crisis after

    her husband ups and leaves her for his highschool sweetheart. Devastated, Laura goes toItaly in the hope of forgetting all she is leavingbehind. This might not sound like a book thatwill lift your spirits, but once she arrives in Italy,the aura changes for good. She meets a Frenchprofessor anonymously named M., and we needto put the pieces of their dysfunctional relation-ship together. Unexpectedly they start sleepingtogether and traveling all over Italy. From themountains to the oceans, even staying in differ-ent hotel rooms, we follow them throughout thescenic settings. It will make you want to go out-side, with a cold glass of iced tea, and enjoy therays of the sun. They are constantly out enjoyingthe sun and express in detail how tan Ms skin is.Their relationship is so loving and adventurous this book shows the compassion two people canhave for each other.

    Critic Jim Marquardt suggests HilmaWolitzers latest novel, the aptly named, SummerReading: A Novel. Its set on the East End, most-ly in Sagaponack and Springs, two towns thatare unlikely to be linked together, one an affluentenclave, the other a modest locale for workingand retired people. The plot goes back and forthbetween them in probing the lives and loves ofthree women, depicting their very differentworlds and their common joys and pains. LissySnyder dwells in splendor at her mansion on theocean yet spends a good portion of her timebrooding about her status in the Page Turners, asummer book club of wealthy women, and her

    feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness. Sheworries about the moral issues raised by the nov-els she reads. Her pursuit of happiness isnthelped by her husbands virulent ex-wife andtheir two difficult children. Retired college pro-fessor of English Literature, Angela Graves,moderates the Page Turners and encouragesthem to draw life lessons from the novels theyreadWhen discussing Villette by CharlotteBronte, Angela sees herself and Lissy in two ofthe characters in the novel. Young MichelleCutty is a general purpose house-girl for Lissy.Despite being treated well, she has a resentfulattitude towards Lissy and other people in herlife, including her hard-working mother and fish-erman boyfriend Hank. She is the stereotypical,snotty young girl youd like to boot in the rearend. Described this way, the novel may soundlike chick-lit lite, but it is more than that. Thecharacters are believable and three-dimensionaland its easy to get absorbed in their troubledlives, especially Lissy and Angela who tote heavybaggage from long-ago experiences. The authorweaves in allusions to the books being discussedby the Page Turners and even includes a list ofseven titles at the end of the novelThedenouement of the plot for the three women issomewhat abrupt and vaguely unsatisfactoryafter all weve invested in the characters. Its aminor reference but the wealthy women of thePage Turners supposedly go fishing on Hanks

  • Big Summer Benefits This WeekendBy Marissa Pollina

    Have fun and support a good causethere aremany great benefits in the Hamptons. Here are afew of the best ones happening this weekend.

    The Planned Parenthood Beach Party, from6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 29, at theBridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club, 231 Mid-Ocean Drive, Bridgehampton, will kick off aBeach Party Heat Wave to benefit PlannedParenthood Hudson Peconic (PPHP). PlannedParenthood Hudson Peconic believes it is theright and responsibility of every individual tomake his/her own reproductive health decisions.

    The association Planned Parenthood goes toschools to give students the education that theymight be lacking, said Beverly Katz, Director,Marketing, Communication and MediaRelations. Our mission is to prevent unintendedpregnancies, and we do this more than any otherorganization, Katz noted.

    We want to let them be aware there is morechoice in their [womens] decisions. It becomesmore of a liberated approach, Katz furtherexplained.

    Katz mentioned, Ninety-six percent ofPlanned Parenthood Hudson Peconics healthcare services are preventive such as birth con-trol, life-saving cervical cancer screenings, breastexams, pregnancy tests, STI and HIV testing andcounseling services.

    Oh, Those Hamptons HouseguestsBy Rachel Abrams

    I love inviting friends and family to come staywith us at our place in Sag Harbor. But whenyou open your barn doors to others, you wel-come more than overnight guests. You invitetheir idiosyncrasies, obsessions, repulsions,demands and talents. Last summer featured alineup of noteworthy characters.

    The Marinator The Marinatora city dwelleris ripe for a

    weekend in the country simply so he can get hishands on a grill. Having experimented and per-fected a new marinade, he volunteers to bring abottle of it with him. Fresh off the Jitney, hepulls out the liquid from his pack, shaking andadmiring its viscosity like a chemist.Throughout the day, he gives hints of its secretingredients, often providing clues and makingus guess. It has a splash of this liquor, namedafter a Tennessee distiller from the 1800s.Late afternoon, the Marinator smothers thechicken and ribs and preps the grill. Othersleave to see the sunset, but he declines, prefer-ring to stay back and watch the pieces soak uphis seasoning.

    The Hotel HoldoutAccustomed to amenity, this guest is used to

    staying at five-star properties. He demands thefinest in accommodations, activity and service,or at least a respectable B & B. Months inadvance, he writes to reserve a queen-beddedroom with a garden view for the weekend. Iinform him that our guestroom has a double-

    bedded futon and isoverlooking the drive-way. In his follow-up cor-respondence, he asksabout a mini-bar, an icebucket and whether wehave The Food Channeland CNN.

    Our fridge is the sizeof a mini-bar; it has asmall freezer with icetrays; we dont have aTV.

    No TV? he gasps.How do you fall asleep?

    We read, I say.What about a robe

    and slippers? Do I haveto bring my own?

    We have big beach towels and flip-flops thatyou can use. He snarls.

    On Hotel Holdouts first night with us, I passhis room on the way downstairs. He has hung aDo Not Disturb sign from his door. I wouldntdare.

    The Launderers The Launderers are on a mid-summer

    odyssey when they arrive at our place for theweekend, bringing stories of their travels andbags of laundry. Mind if we run a load? theyask upon arrival. Were down to our swimtrunks!

    Of course not, I say, all host, proffering up

    the gallon of detergent.Before I know it, one

    load becomes sixitturns out their nine-month-old wears clothnappies! I curse theireco-sensitive behavioruntil I am struck by thealternative: disposabledirty diapers that wewould have to cart backto the citywe are week-enders who dont pay forgarbage pick-up. Ill takethe hiked-up water bill.

    Awkward Day Guest Awkward Day Guest

    arrives by train, car orfoot. Its unclear how, but

    he simply materializes one Saturday afternoon.He carries a bag that could hold just a toweland swimsuit, or include toiletries and achange of clothes for the evening too. He men-tions other friends in the area, but I suspect hecame to see just us. Over a recent email or textor phone conversation that I cant recall, I mayhave said, Call if youre ever around. But hemay have taken that to mean, Come visitwhenever you like. As the sun sets, his plansbecome increasingly vague. He makes casualmention of meeting people for drinks, dinner,

    I LOVE WHAT I DO by Lee Elliot


    Memories for Memorial Day.I opened my store in 1965 in Greenwich Village at

    the age of 18. I designed and made precious Jewelry, I made Leather sandals and belts and sold vintage Acoustic Guitars. During those 22 years I have so many memories of celebrity customers, and my

    work and friends, and staff...and life.

  • clubbing, but takes no initiative to get in touch.Feel free to stay for dinner, we say, sensing hehasnt eaten in a while. Halfheartedly,Awkward Day Guest agrees, acting like hesjust being courteous. After dinner he makes nomove for the door. At midnight, I put cleansheets on the bed. The next morning, he joinsus for French toast that he eats while remark-ing he should save his appetite for brunch withsomeone A and someone B. After finishing hisstack of battered bread, he takes a long sip ofcoffee and inquires if he could catch a ride back.

    The Fixers Despite being close friends, The Fixers work

    hard for their room and board, blowingthrough my to-do list and solving things I haveyet to identify as problems. They tackle every-thing from rewiring an old floor lamp previous-ly headed for the dump (her), to disabling thedead-awakening drier buzzer (him), to re-ston-ing a path to the outdoor shower (her), to set-ting up a projector in the barn for al frescomovie viewing (him). When time permits, theFixers frequent yard sales to fill in the gaps inour eclectic furnishings. Weve come across anold set of school chairs that I think will workwith your farm stand table, presuming we takea handsaw to the legs, she calls to inform meearly one morning while I am still in bed. Ican paint the seats glossy red to match the rat-tan chairs I restrung for you last week. If wecan get the seller down to $60, should we doit?

    The Lobster Lover

    Lobster Lover is committed to eating thelarge crustaceans multiple times a day, days ina row. By day, he samples lobster rolls in thearea, but night is when he really gets hisseafood on. One afternoon, he picks up half adozen two-pounders at a seafood purveyor andproceeds to extol the virtues of grilling oversteaming. A few hours later we gather in thekitchen to witness Lobster Lovers legendaryhypnosis technique. One by one, he rubs thelobsters foreheads, lulling them into a deepstate of relaxation, then gently moves theirlimbs into a lobster baddha konasana (cob-blers pose), if you will, lining them up twodeep, like yogis, on the kitchen counter. Theyremain this way, tranquil and unsuspecting,until our biggest pot is brought down for aquick par-boil. At Lobster Lovers command,the men parade the lobsters outside to the pic-nic table where they hack and whack theclawed creatures in preparation for the grill.

    Lobster insides fly in all directions, splatter-ing their skins and soaking their shirts green.For the next two hours, we grill, we butter, andwe eat. At midnight, when the lobster crackersand mini forks are down in their resting posi-tions, I gather the towels and tees that wearevidence of the recent massacre and cry, Lastcall for lobster load! At this, Lobster Man lickshis lips and tussles his beard, no doubt lookingfor one last piece of sweet meat. Im good, hesays, peering down at his moist sweatshirtwith pride. And I think we have enough leftover for a lobster scramble in the morning.

  • charter boat which, given their money and style,seems unlikely. One of them, the greatly enviedArdith, has a notorious fling with a restaurateurthat ends with him being murdered by his wife,yet she takes her place again in Hampton socie-ty. Are we prudish to think she might have beenshunned, at least for a little while? But there areenough pleasures in the book to make it worth-while.

    Jim Marquardt also suggests Whacked, a novelby Jules Asner. If youve ever yearned to live inL.A., work in TV and film and hobnob with allthe celebs, this book will cure that yearning andmake you happy to dwell anywhere elseThecharacters in Whacked are neurotic or worse, liv-ing in a constant state of anxiety, and seekingsomeone or something that will make themhappy. Asner is the wife of Steven Soderbergh, asuccessful movie director, so we assume sheknows of what she speaks(She) paints agrim picture of a dysfunctional communityinhabited by dysfunctional people who spendtheir time chasing mammon and sex. Since theplot revolves around and is narrated by DaniHale, a writer for the hot TV series Flesh and

    Bone, we are privy to all her problems, whichcome mainly from her pursuit of a lasting rela-tionship and marriage. But the guys she datesare seriously flawed in one way or other, and herhopes are regularly dashedWe know thefuture because Asner uses the expedient deviceof a look-forward epilogue where everything isexplained and everything comes out neatly forour girlDani lands creative success, the bighouse, and marriage to Rich Pisani, an ex L.A.cop working as a tech advisor for the show...

    Marquardt goes on to reveal an unexpectedcrime with little build-up of suspense. Spoileralert: Dani seems to become a psychopathovernight! Since Flesh and Bone involves foren-sic pathology, says Marquardt, we are treatedto a review of Marilyn Monroes death by appar-ent suicide, as well as scenes at the morgue asDani gathers material for her scriptDo thesethings really happen in Hollywood? One minorcharacter crushes Viagra into her boyfriendsguacamole to rev him up. David says to Daniafter learning she had had a nose job, I thoughtyou were factory! When Chloe Johnson, the ris-ing star of the TV show is murdered, the director

    worries most about dropping behind his shootingschedule. Even Dani reacts to such callousness,remarking Ya gotta love Hollywood.

    those who would like to come for dancing, drinksand desert from 9:30 p.m. to midnight. An AfterHours ticket is $100 per person and can be pur-chased at the door. Contact the SouthamptonHospital Foundation at 631-726-8700 x 7 or visit.

  • Drink Pink: Local Rose is as Versatile as it isDelicious

    Drink pink this spring pink wines that is.Whether you call it vin gris, ros, blush or some

    proprietary name ros is back and in a big way onLong Island. And I couldnt be happier.

    Personally, I love ros because no other wine typeor style, red or white, offers so many options and somuch versatility at the table. From seafood to steak and every food in between there is a local rosthat will pair beautifully.

    Note: Were not talking about sweet ros here white zinfandel from the west coast isnt nearly asversatile, though its certainly popular.

    Dry ros can even bridge the gap between whitewine and red, providing a gateway to wine explo-ration. Well-made ros combines the complexity andstructure of red wine with the refreshing, thirst-quenching qualities of whites.

    To help celebrate local ros, the Long Island WineCouncil (LIWC) has deemed May Run for the

    Roses month. ThroughoutMay wineries across LongIsland will offer specials anddiscounts on their ros wines.Its the perfect opportunity toget out and taste the local rosbounty even if the $1 per bot-tle of ros sold that was previ-ously donated to charity is nowgoing to the LIWC.

    Youll find ros at just aboutevery local winery and much ofit is good. Some is very good. Ihavent tasted all of the newlyreleased 2010s yet, but hereare some of the best that have crossed my tastingtable so far, plus a list of some of the consistentlybest pink drinks.

    Bedell Cellars 2010 Taste Ros ($18) replacesthe popular Domaine CC Ros in the Bedell/CoreyCreek lineup and is dominated by merlot (62%) withcabernet franc (27%), syrah (7%) and petit verdot(4%) all intended for ros rather than saignee,whole-cluster pressed and fermented with ambientyeast. The nose bursts with a distinct passion fruit-meets-guava aroma with notes of peach, strawberry,blood orange and a touch of earthy spice and sage.On the dry, medium-bodied palate the flavors lean abit more towards red fruit particularly strawberryand red raspberry with a dose of passion fruit andblood orange. In the background, there is a niceherbal component of some peppery spice.

    Channing Daughters Winery 2010 Rosato diRefosco ($20): Channing Daughters is the onlylocal winery to grow the Northern Italian grape

    Refosco and it leads to thisunique ros that stands outs.Very brambly with red raspber-ry and wild strawberry charac-ter, there is a definite blackcurrant note on the palate.Medium bodied with a certainexotic quality, the acidity isjuicy and citrusy. A must-tryros.

    Roaonke Vineyards 2010De Rosa ($18): It seems likethis ros changes styles everyyear or so, and this release isno exception. Drier and fuller

    bodied that some previous years, this blend of redgrapes and chardonnay shows a mlange of fruit everything from peach to passion fruit to strawber-ry to grapefruit to kiwi. Its dry but ripe with someweight on the palate that is well balanced by inte-grated acidity.

    Shinn Estate Vineyards 2010 Rose ($17):Shinn always produces a bolder style of ros onesuited for burgers and even steaks. Made with mer-lot (75%) and cabernet franc (25%), this one smellslike red wine with berry fruit, plum and classic LongIsland earthiness. Intensely flavored with lots ofripe red fruit and sweet herb edges. Your next burg-er really will thank you.

    After the server has introducedherself to the table, and shared themany seasonal specials of the day, theSommelier approaches the table toassist in a wine selection. What fol-lows is an actual verbal exchangethat I engaged in one evening:

    Good evening, may I assist you ina wine selection? says theSommelier.

    Yes, I would like a FrenchProsecco, says the well-dressedfemale diner.

    Im sorry we do not have Prosecco,we do have our own local SparklingWine we label as Isle, explains theSommelier.

    No, I dont want Sparkling Wine, Iwill have a glass of FrenchChampagne instead, says the diner.

    Sommelier then explains, We offeronly award-winning North Fork ofLong Island, Comtesse Thrsewine.

    The diner then spat, Fine, I willhave a glass of Pinot Grigio!

    Sommelier replies, Im sorry we donot have Pinot Grigio.

    Then WHAT do you have?! saysthe diner clearly annoyed.

    Please take a look at our ComtesseThrse wine list, Sommelier polite-ly suggests.

    Diner looks at page 2 of our menu,If you are sooo local why do you havewine from Hungary and Russia?

    Sommelier then stifles a laugh andexplains, We use Hungarian,Russian in addition to French, oakbarrels to ferment and age ourwines.

    Hmmm, you have many Merlots, I dont likedry wine, is this Russian Merlot dry? Diner isnow visibly frustrated with the Sommelier. Mindyou this exchange is during the height of service

    on a busy Saturday night!Sommelier offers, Let me help you complement

    your dinner with the perfect wine, what are yougoing to enjoy for an entre?

    With a visible roll of her eyes, dinersays, fine, I will have the scallop spe-cial.

    Sommelier replies, Wonderful, wehave the perfect wine to complementthat dish. Pan-seared scallops madein a curry and sauternes reductioninfused with saffron served withherbed basmati rice and sprinkledwith fresh pomegranates. A seasonedSommelier can almost predict a per-sons palate. Here you go, try this, ataste of our 08 Blanc de Noir, off-dry1.5% residual sugar, salmon in colorand has a nose of full ripe peaches.

    After the diner took her first sam-ple sip she replied, WOW, this isreally good, why didnt you just tellme about this wine in the firstplace?!!

    Sommelier at this point wanted touse the corkscrew in her pocket todrill a hole in her head to release thesheer frustration of dealing withthese fabulous diners. Lesson being:your Sommelier is there to assist youin your wine selection, we want youto enjoy a fine dining experience,complementing your food choice withthe perfect wine. Trust yourSommelier, we are there to insure youwill enjoy a fine DINING experience,not to have a wine DUELING experi-ence.

    Dianne Delaney is the Sommelier atComtesse Thrse Bistro, 739 MainRoad, Aquebogue. [email protected]

    North Fork (continued from previous page) Outdoor Room

    By Samantha MitchellI love our house. From the living room and the bed-

    rooms it has a beautiful view of Shelter IslandsMenantic Creek at its widest point. Its really morelike a lake than a creek. The house is perched on a lit-tle rise so it looks down over the water, our dock, andother houses with their docks and boats. The onlyproblem is that there is no porch or patio where youcan enjoy sitting and looking at the water. Theres noteven a back dooryou have to go out one of the twofront doors and clear around to the backyard to takeadvantage of the waterfront part of the property. Itsawkward. And since its a rental, were not about tobuild a screened-in porch or punch out a door from theliving room to the backyard. So what to do?

    We decided to create an outdoor living/diningroom on the generous lawn at the rear of the houseusing a combination of found objects and new piecesfrom area outdoor stores. So what if the barbeque grillis off the kitchen in the front? Well just have to walkthe food on trays down the slate path that leadsaround the house to the back. Our outdoor room willbe temporary and highly portable kind of a pop-upshop of a room; anything we invest in we should beable to take with us when we move on.

    The redwood lawn furniture set left behind by ourlandlord is in fairly good shape. It just needs a big canof redwood stain and a little sweat equity on my part.Finding replacement cushions for it, however, hasproved to be a little more difficult (who knew those oldredwood sets are not standard sizes?). After severalfalse starts at the big box stores, I ended up atKaufman Allied in Riverhead. I found a faux TommyBahama print in a green, red and tan combo thatwont show the dirt. Two chairs and one chaise later, Ihave a matching set, along with coordinating stripedcushions for our old green wooden rockers. (All thesecushions ate up the lions share of my budgetandsince we cant take the redwood with us, Ill have tofind a set that fits the cushions at a garage sale someday!)

    We also inherited a round redwood picnic table withan umbrella hole, but you guessed it no umbrella,so I am on my way to Patio.com in Southampton for aperfect fit (it must be green). The property also camewith one of those odd iron filigree settee and chair setsthat are all over the East End. I can spray the pieceswhite and park them under a shade tree.

    The dock still cries out for two colorful Adirondackchairs, and the men in my family are lobbying for oneof those meshed-in gazebos for bug-free dining (Imnot wild about that idea, but I will keep an openmind). So while I am not quite finished with my furni-ture shopping for my outdoor room, I couldnt resistthe best part: accessorizing. (I am reminded of thatline from Steel Magnolias, The only thing that sepa-rates us from the animals is our ability to acces-sorize!)

    I bought some decorative trays, sophisticated-yet-plastic dinnerware, new placemats and matching nap-kins, and lots of citronella candles. I found everythingat Hildreths Home Goods in East Hampton in a colorscheme to match my revamped redwood.

    Were all set for our first barbeque. Hello summer!
