That handsome fellow and all-around good egg Stuart Disston, AIA, LEED GA, and partner, Austin Patterson Disston Architects, will present an illustrated (with slides) “Architectural Tour of Quogue” on Sunday, June 10, at 5 p.m., at the Quogue Library.
To illustrate this tour through time, Stuart will show historic photos of the town and key buildings spanning the 18th to the 21st century in order to trace Quogue’s development and architectural interests as they reflect prevailing culture over the years, including today’s renewed interest in the traditional vernacular shingle style. Projects featured range from Quogue’s earliest house, “Old Revolution,” to the 1897 shingle-style Quogue Library to modern houses of the late 20th century.
There are only four more performances of the Hampton Theatre Company production of A.R. Gurney’s latest comedy about WASP culture, “Black Tie,” at the Quogue Community Theater on Jessup Avenue. Since this is a show about fathers and sons and grandsons—and wives and daughters and daughters-in-law—it’s a particularly appropriate play for the weekend before Father’s Day weekend.
“Black Tie” runs Thursday through Sunday through June 10, with the final early-curtain Thursday show tonight at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m., and Sunday’s matinee at 2:30 p.m.. Buy tickets at www.hamptontheatre.org or by calling 1-866-811-4111.
