“I now have no time to be tired.”-Wilhelm I

July 27, 2009

Why is it when there is a great week coming up with a ton of things to do, I’m wiped out from all the things I tried to do the week before?  I NEED SLEEP……

Anyhow, there are so many things going on, I’m just going to jump right in:

Play me a song…


Buddy Merriam and Back Roads will be at the Mary Jane Davies Green in Manhasset. 7:30PM. FREE. Bring lawn chairs.

Open mic with Miles to Dayton’s Dave March, Once & For All, Patchogue at 8PM. Have a Palm while you’re there!


Gathering Time will be performing for the Brown Bag Concert series, 12:30PM, FREE. Bring lawn chairs.


Acoustic Long Island features Will Knox this week at Deepwells Mansion, 7:30PM, FREE.


Acoustic Thursdays hosted by Dave Drew and featuring Corrientes (they’re very good!) and more at Lefty’s Candlelight Bar, 8PM, no cover charge.

The Fourth Annual Huntington Folk Festival features a headline performance by Peter Rowan with the Rowan Brothers both backing and opening for him on the Chapin Rainbow Stage. The afternoon will feature instrumental workshops, an open jam and song swap, and acoustic music showcases. 3-11PM, bring lawn chairs.

See stars, hear music. Open mic hosted by singer-songwriter Liza Coppola at the Custer Institute, 7PM, FREE.

Of special note…The Blue Hit (out of Texas) will be here at Once and for All this Saturday night!  Don’t miss this very rare local appearance!

Of grape and grain

Don’t miss out!  Sign up by Thursday for Martha Clara’s Chip n Dipped Wine and Chocolate pairing…this Sunday 12-4, $10 per person.

Every Thursday this summer, Raphael Vineyards will remain open until 10PM and feature live music in the tasting room. FREE, pay by the glass.

Of creatures great and small

Come on out for a Sunset Walk 6-7:30PM at Blydenburgh County Park in Smithtown. Wind down with Cornell Cooperative Extension as they look for wildlife around Stump Pond. As sunset approaches, it’s a great time of day to look and listen for frogs, fish, birds, turtles and any other animals who have been hiding in the shade all day. Meet in the parking lot of the northern entrance to the park off of New Mill Road and dress for the weather. Program is FREE but pre-registration is required;  call (631) 897-3530.

Movie madness

Old Field Farm Summer Film Festival presents The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes 7:30PM at Old Field Farm in Setauket, FREE. Bring a blanket or beach chair, picnic, flashlight and friends for a fun filled evening.

It’s been a while since I posted one of these on here, but make an effort to catch this week’s edition of “Anything But Silent” at the Cinema Arts Center, featuring Greta Garbo in “Flesh and the Devil” with organ accompaniment by MoMA’s Ben Model, $12 per person.

All for now you kooky cats!  Have something that should be here?  Email me at cheapdateli@gmail.com!
