~Live Music at Greenport Harbor Brewing Company
The East End may be known for its wineries, but there are many good local breweries in the area. Formed in 2008 inside an old firehouse, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company offers tastings 12PM – 6PM on Sundays and 12PM-7PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Most afternoons, you can also grab a pint, sit down and enjoy live music. On the day of our inaugural Santa Brunch, local musician Marty Attridge will be playing live from 2pm – 5pm. For updates on more musical performances, check their Facebook page.
~Go ice skating
Established in 1828, the Village of Greenport’s Ice Skating Rink in Mitchell Park offers an inexpensive way to enjoy the cold weather. It’s open 11am – 5pm on Sundays, weather permitting. Admission is only $10 for adults and $7 for kids under 18. If you need skates, rentals are only $5. Plus, novices can get a training bar for $5 or experts can sharpen their skates for the same price. Be sure to call ahead, (631) 477-2200, ext. 2 to check if they are open.
~Visit the Long Island Aquarium
If you’re looking to stay warm, see the wide of array of sea creatures at the Long Island Aquarium. They have tons of events ranging from Sea Lion shows, Penguin feedings, and even a Sand Shark lagoon talk. Learn about all the animals in each exhibit, many of which have been caught locally in the Peconic Bay or Shinnecock Bay. If it happens to be the week of your birthday, you can get free admission in honor of the Aquarium’s 15th anniversary. Otherwise, tickets will cost $21 for children, $27.95 for adults, and $23.50 for seniors. Children 2 and under get in free.
If you get tired from all that adventure, stay at the Hotel Indigo and enjoy the East End at a leisurely pace. The hotel will be offering free gift cards to Tanger Outlets and Bistro 72 if you stay between 11/27 and 12/22 (while supplies last.) Learn more about this deal here.
If you don’t stay over, we’ll see you at Santa Brunch! Call Bistro 72 at 631-369-3325 for reservations.
