In the wake of the massive December Main Street fire in Sag Harbor that devastated several buildings — including the iconic Art Deco Sag Harbor Cinema, a new startup called Surf and Slide Co. has partnered with the non-profit Sag Harbor Partnership to run a T-shirt drive with all profits going toward the Sag Harbor Cinema.
Sag Harbor Partnership hopes to raise $8 million to purchase the cinema site and rebuild it as a non-profit community cinema arts center. The group needs to raise $6 million by July 1. While several big donors have stepped in to help — including Billy Joel whose sizeable donation will ensure the popcorn stand will be named after him — there is still a long way to go. (more…)

It’s official. Billy Joel, one of the world’s most popular entertainers and a part-time resident of Sag Harbor, has stepped up to the plate and joined the campaign to save and rebuild the Sag Harbor Cinema.
Additional A-list supporters of the effort now include film director Martin Scorsese and producer Harvey Weinstein. (more…)

Long Island Restaurant Week runs through April 30, and one of the few South Fork restaurants taking part is Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor. This is one of the village’s newest eateries and it offers fine water views as well as Chef Matty Boudreau’s creative Restaurant Week three-course prix fixe menu for $28.95.

For a dessert, choose from mango pudding or a brownie with ice cream … yum! (more…)
