Long Island Winery Cruise & Luncheon: 11/13/11

by Roger on Dec.02, 2011, under Outing

Our group met up at the Exit 63 Park & Ride for coffee and car talk. Eventually we marshaled into formation for a leisurely (Peter leading the way) cruise out East to the Old Field Winery in Southhold where we were given an extensive tour of the grounds, lessons on winemaking and tasting, homemade orthopedics and an impromptu car care clinic with “Chicklet”, a Studebaker who was having a very very bad day. Afterwards it was on to Claudio’s in Greenport to warm up and have a nice lunch.

Thanks to Peter Lauria for organizing the event, John Popeleski for the photography and Sam and Mike for everything else!

East End Winery Cruise 11/21/10

by Roger on Jan.04, 2011, under Outing

The weather was beautiful, brisk and clear. No one was more late than usual. We all met up at the park-n-ride (insert joke here) and leisurely caravanned east on 25A all the way out to Duck Walk Vineyards where we marveled at the architectural beauty of the welcome center as well as the cute bartender who plied us with a selection of their finest offerings. Afterwards we drove to the decidedly un-modern Modern Snack Bar for some old fashioned homestyle cookin’. All in all it was a fun outing, and it couldn’t have happened without the organization of Peter Lauria, so we thank him for making the effort.

Ready to go...
