Rowdy for Film Fest
Back in May, Rowdy Hall announced its intention to take over the space in Amagansett more recently occupied by Main Street Tavern and to leave its East Hampton site after Labor Day. But this week, its management announced its intention to stay at its current site through Columbus Day and the Hamptons International Film Festival, when it has always been a hub of pre and post-screening activity. Closed on Tuesday, it will serve dinner from 5 to 10 p.m. on other days and lunch on the weekends from noon to 5. There is a bar menu offered from 3 to 5 p.m. as well on the days it is open. The new site will open later this fall.

Rowdy Hall will also offer Rosh Hashana specials Friday evening, with matzo ball soup, braised beef brisket with honey glazed baby carrots and cipollini onions, and honey cake and apple compote added to the restaurant's menu for the night. 

Harvest Party
Although Wolffer Estate Vineyard's harvest party in Sagaponack is still a few weeks away, tickets for this popular event sell out quickly and it pays to be prepared. It is scheduled for Oct. 7 from noon to 4 with a rain date of the next day. 

The party includes a live band, 10 international food stations, wine and cider, barrel rolling, grape stomping, a relay race, pony rides, hayrides, and other diversions for all members of the family. Admission through Eventbrite costs $190, and $90 for children. Wine club members will pay $180. No tickets will be sold on site.

Honey Harvest
The Corey Creek Tap Room in Southold will celebrate the honey harvest with a party with Promise Land Apiaries on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

Chris Kelly, a beekeeper from the apiaries, will discuss honeybees and demonstrate how to bottle the honey harvested that day from the vineyard's hives. Guests can assist and will also receive four ounces of honey to take home along with a wine and cheese pairing for $65. Ticket information is available on the winery's website.

Pinot Gris Gets a 92
Bedell Cellars in Cutchogue was awarded a 92 rating from VinePair for its 2021 Pinot Gris. The wine is also on the digital media company's Best Pinot Grigio list for 2023. Bedell's vines were planted in 2016. The wine has a crisp and light character, with a "full mouthfeel and beautiful aromatics," according to its makers.
