Two Forks and a Cork

On Saturday, March 7, from 6 to 8 p.m., the Parrish Art Museum Business Council is hosting Two Forks and a Cork — a lively evening of local wine and spirits tastings, hors d’oeuvres, live music, and gallery exploration in an ideal setting for socializing and networking. The event features a selection of white, rosé, and red wines from premier East End vineyards and vodka mixed drinks from a local craft distillery. Admission for Two Forks and a Cork, open to attendees 21 and older, is $55 for Parrish members, $75 for nonmembers.

Guitarist Mike Gari and bass player Steve Shaughnessy will perform live throughout the event, as guests sample wines from Beacon Meadery, Channing Daughters Winery, Kontokosta Winery, Macari Vineyards & Winery, Palmer Vineyards, and Paumanok Vineyards, plus cocktails crafted with vodka produced by Sagaponack Farm Distillery. All wine and spirit producers will be on hand to discuss their processes and products. Special hors d’oeuvres and snacks specially curated to pair with the wine and spirit tastings are provided by Chef Peter Ambrose, Elegant Affairs, Five North Chocolate, The Golden Pear, and The Seafood Shop, with additional tastings provided by Plain-T.

“The museum is grateful to the Business Council for their enthusiasm and diligence in organizing this event that engages the community, and to our sponsors for their generous support,” said Chris Siefert, Parrish Art Museum deputy director.

Two Forks and a Cork is the finale of the 13th annual Long Island Winterfest, a five-week, midwinter wine, music, and arts festival, that takes place throughout the East End’s unique vineyard tasting rooms, breweries, hotels, and legendary historic and arts organizations. Throughout the evening at the Parrish, guests may visit the galleries to explore “What We See, How We See,” a series of seven special exhibitions that juxtapose distinct image-making approaches by artists working in abstraction and figuration, from the late 19th century until today.

Also on view is the 2020 Student Exhibition — a celebration of youthful creativity features work by more than 1,000 young artists from 37 Eastern Long Island schools from pre-K to high school.

Live Music at Green Hill Kitchen & Que

Rorie Kelly makes what she calls “ladybeast music” — songs that inspire others to love themselves fiercely and become their own heroes.

For a live dose of musical motivation from the crimson-haired siren herself, swing by the Green Hill Kitchen & Que on Friday, March 6, at 8 p.m. for the first in the packed lineup of weekend concerts at the Greenport restaurant.

Up next is Wandering Time on Saturday, March 7, followed by Jon Divello and Zanti Misfits on March 13 and 14, respectively; and Lawrence Cooley and Julia King on March 27 and 28, respectively. Concerts will also stage on March 20 and 21, but talent is yet to be determined.

The restaurant also hosts a “Jazz Master Series” every Sunday beginning at 6 p.m. For more information, call 631-477-4900 or visit

Almond Artists & Writers Dinner Series

As an educator and interdisciplinary collaborative artist, Anthony Madonna has led workshops, produced performance series and academic events, and performed work within institutions such as the Barbican Centre, the Tate Modern, Carnegie Hall, The Juilliard School, and the McCarter Theater.

But on Tuesday evening, March 10, he will be center stage at Almond, as the latest guest of honor in the “Artists & Writers” series at the Bridgehampton restaurant.

“Anthony currently serves as the inaugural Patti Kenner Fellow in Arts Education at Guild Hall of East Hampton,” according to a press release. “The fellowship aims to support the next generation of artists, theater makers and creative professionals through the development and creation of high quality, inventive and pioneering educational offerings.”

The dinner begins at 7 p.m. and the cost is $49, which includes a three-course, family-style meal and one glass of wine or draft beer, and reservations are required. For more information, call 631-537-5665 or visit
