Game Time at Doubles
In a month that contains both Valentine's Day and the Super Bowl, February is for foodies, and celebratory menus. One in the latter category is at Doubles in Amagansett Square, which has a game-day catering menu it is offering to order ahead.
The menu features Buffalo wings with blue cheese dip, carrots, and celery, mac and cheese, and chili vinegar coleslaw with red and green cabbage. There are chips served with carrots and dips like guacamole, onion, and refried bean and queso. Sandwich options are turkey subs with provolone, pickled peppers, tomato, iceberg, mayo, and mustard or sloppy Joe sliders.
Contact the store for more information and pricing.
The Loaves and Fishes food store in Sagaponack will reopen for 2024 on Wednesday with a menu of "crowd favorites," according to Karina Forrest, the store manager. Customers can be reunited with the store's versions of crab cakes, chicken schnitzel, apricot galettes, and other treats. The store will be open Wednesday through Sunday.
Candlelight Fridays at Wolffer Estate Vineyard continue weekly with live music in the tasting room along with seasonal pairings of wine and food, a new wine and cider release, and winter specialty cocktails.

Levain Bakery can feel the love in the air and will offer limited-edition cookie tins and "cookie grams" for a fresh take on the box of chocolates.
Available beginning on Tuesday at the Wainscott shop, the tin will hold eight six-ounce cookies and has been designed to be saved for future use. The tins can be purchased in the store or delivered through DoorDash locally or shipped nationally through the bakery's website.
Cookie grams, a single cookie gift box, might remind some of the candy grams of days gone by. The cute boxes have a Conversation Hearts candy kind of vibe and can be delivered as well, exclusively through DoorDash. The code LOVECOOKIE will provide a $5 discount on purchases with no minimum required.
On Tuesdays through Fridays from 5 to 7 p.m., Coche Comedor will have a "5 + 10" tap takeover where wine, beer, and small margaritas will be priced at $5 and full-sized margaritas will cost $10.

Grindstone Break and Update
Grindstone Coffee and Donuts is on a winter break and will reopen Monday.
In other news, Grindstone reported it was having some zoning issues at the small space on Race Lane in East Hampton it has rented from Leif Hope to transform into an East Hampton Village outpost of the Sag Harbor store. It requires a change of use from a farm stand to a retail food business, involving a lot of paperwork. The owners said on Instagram they are still working to get it done, making progress, and promise "it will be worth the wait."
On Feb. 10 and 11, Sparkling Point in Southold will celebrate Valentine's Day early with a pairing of three of its best sparkling wines with North Fork Flour Shoppe's miniature cupcakes. Each will be part of a seated and guided tasting.
Tastings will take place between 10:45 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. in the tasting room and times can be reserved on the website.
