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…)

Comedian Tim Gage opened the show and then announced that a surprise guest would soon take the stage. (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.

Among the offerings are appetizers such as Buffalo shrimp or a butterhead salad with blue cheese crumbles and red onions, along with entrees such as rock shrimp torchio pasta dish or a grilled nine-ounce teres major steak (a tender shoulder cut of beef) served with a spicy horseradish sauce. For a dessert, choose from mango pudding or a brownie with ice cream … yum! (more…)

At first, several people thought it was a crazy idea.

After all, who in their right mind sponsors an outdoor winter festival, complete with fireworks, in a famous summertime resort?

Sag Harbor, that’s who — and ever since the first successful HarborFrost back in February 2011, this village by the bay has made it an annual tradition. (more…)
