Karaoke Is Back

Almond Restaurant and Bar is bringing back its world famous karaoke, which started February 11. Every Saturday starting at 9 p.m. patrons are welcome to choose their favorite tune to belt out. Hosted by DJ Carlos Lama, Karaoke Saturdays will run until midnight each Saturday.

Almond Restaurant is at 1 Ocean Road in Bridgehampton. Call 631-537-5665 or visit almondrestaurant.com for details.

A Progressive Italian Wine Dinner

Nick & Toni’s will host a special wine pairing dinner on Thursday, February 23 beginning at 6:30 p.m. “Italy: Top of the Boot” will feature a five-course menu crafted by Chef Michael Zuckerman and Pastry Chef Kelsey Roden, paired with Italian wines chosen by Beverage Director Chimene Macnaughton.

“The inspiration for this month’s dinner came from an email exchange I’ve been having with the brilliant Friulian winemaker Giampaolo Venica,” said Macnaughton. “In talking about his latest project Dalia Maris — itself inspired by the whites of France’s Northern Rhône valley where Giampaolo recently worked several harvests — Giampaolo shared with me his passion for and commitment to the indigenous whites of his native Friuli, and reading his extolling of their terroir, and his pure joy in describing these wines. I just had to take us all there, if only for one night.”

The cost of the five-course menu is $150, plus tax and gratuity. Wines from the menu will be available with special event pricing preorder directly through Jacques Franey of Domaine Franey on the night of the event.

Nick & Toni’s is located at 136 North Main Street, East Hampton. For details or reservations, call 631-324-3550 or visit nickandtonis.com.

Greek Specials in Bridgehampton

In addition, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 5 to 6:30 p.m., Elaia Estiatorio’s vibrant Opa Happy Hour at the bar features $1 oysters, select wines, signature cocktails and small plates for $12.

Elaia Estiatorio is at 95 School Street in Bridgehampton. Visit elaiaestiatorio.com for more information.
