Beat the Winter Blues With Trivia, Karaoke, Music, and More

Thu, 02/22/2024 - 14:40

Bored? We thought so. Here are some ideas to kick the winter blues.

In Amagansett, the Stephen Talkhouse will host the 16th annual Cabin Fever Festival on Saturday night, starting at 7. There will be music from the Realm and Project Vibe, which is celebrating the release of its latest album, at what is billed as "the biggest party of the winter." Admission is $20 at the door.

Kizzy's Tavern — also called Kizzy T.'s and locatable as the roadside tavern on the highway where Bamboo and Zok-Kon used to be — has been offering weekly evening events to help customers keep their spirits up through the doldrum months. Trivia sessions are every Sunday at 7 and karaoke is Thursdays at 8. There are also foosball, darts, billiards, and other games to be enjoyed alongside the burgers, sandwiches, and beer.

There's also karaoke at Almond, in Bridgehampton, on Saturdays starting at 9 p.m. with D.J. Carlos Lama running the show. 

Over at the Clubhouse in Wainscott, in addition to bowling, billiards, live music, and arcade games, there's a Bob Ross-inspired paint-and-sip session on Thursdays and line-dancing on Saturdays, both starting at 7 p.m.

Green Giants: Here to Stay?

Long Island’s South Fork, known for beaches, maritime history, and fancy people, is also known for its hedges. Hedge installation and maintenance are big business, and there could be a whole book about hedges, with different varieties popular during different eras. In the last decade, for example, the “green giant,” a now ubiquitous tree, has been placed along property lines throughout the Hamptons. It’s here to stay, and grow, and grow.
