A Gingerbread House Party

Thu, 12/14/2023 - 20:29

A gingerbread house contest sponsored by Project Most will wrap up with a free party and judging on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Most Holy Trinity school building on Meadow Way. 

With prizes awarded for ages 5 to 12 and 13 to 18, and for adult and family creations, the houses should be something special. Participants have a chance to win a scooter from Khanh Sports and gift cards from Khanh’s, Hub Grub, the Clubhouse, A La Mode, and Lululemon, a movie theater gift basket, and Southampton Ice Rink passes. 

The judges will be Mary Schoenlein, who pioneered the gingerbread house competition when she ran her popular Amagansett food shop, Mary’s Marvelous, and Arlene Bujese, an art dealer and curator. Also at the party, there will be voting for the people’s choice awards. Hot cocoa and treats will be served, and there will be arts and crafts and a performance by Keith Leaf, the Amazing Fire Juggler.

The East End, Shaken and Stirred

About the earthquake centered in New Jersey and felt here on Friday: “In actuality this is, on a relative basis, a big deal, but yet 4.8 is not big by global standards,” William Holt, a professor of geophysics at Stony Brook University, said that day, a few hours after the shaking stopped. “We’ve had smaller ones, three or four over the last 30 years, in the Long Island area.”

Eclipse Fever Gripped the South Fork, Too

During the solar eclipse on Monday, when approximately 89 percent of the sun was blocked out by the moon here, it was both a communal and a solitary experience for those taking it in at a watch party at the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton. The field behind the museum was dotted with 100-plus voyeurs, in small groupings on lawn chairs and blankets, staring with solar-safe spectacles, taking in every second of the hot action.
