Erin Go Brine, Scottish Music, Tax Day Sweetness

sparkling pointe macaroon 2

The March 8 Update

Friday March 17th offers some true St. Pat’s fun: the Greenport Harbor Brewing Erin Go Brine Party at its Peconic tasting room, and world class Scottish music on Shelter Island at the Presbyterian Church. The Erin Go Brine party features Greenport Harbor beer (of course), salty fresh oysters from Little Creek Oysters, and hand crafted pickles from Backyard Brine. There’s also traditional Irish food and live music, fireside.

If you want a British experience that’s a bit more highbrow (but not at all snooty), take the Greenport ferry to Shelter Island for a don’t miss concert by Katie McNally (“the new face of Scottish fiddling in America” – Living Tradition) and Neil Pearlman (“a tremendous pianist” -BBC Radio Scotland).

To get over your tax day blues, head to Sparkling Pointe for their Rosé release and Macaron pairings. It’ll cheer you up for sure.
