Ironic, one of my favorite Marx Brothers lines came to mind last night (see today's headline). But no I didn't say it! I was enjoying my dinner in the basement of 1770 House last night when a rather loud woman next to me was extolling the virtues of a certain "News" channel. She claimed it was the only one that gave viewers the "whole story." I nearly lost it! Now, I can't get into it for legal reasons but I did give her a piece of my mind and tried to educate her to the best of my ability. I mean, she had a sort of "sapphic" (not that there is anything wrong with that) look to her and to me she seemed like a chicken defending Colonel Sanders. I don't think it worked.
Anyway, if you get a chance, go to 1770 house. They have one of the best prix fixe dinners around. You can order from the pub menu in the basement or from the upstairs menu. Either way, I love it and it's a great deal! $35 for a three course meal or $19.95 for a two course off of the pub menu. On the pub menu is the meatloaf that the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten twittered was the best she ever had. I have to say, I agree! Anyway, if you want to make reservations or get more details at www.1770house.com and I hope for your sake there is no Faux News on!
And now speaking of the Marx Brothers... this coming Saturday Bay Street Theatre will be showing "MONKEY BUSINESS!" It's no "Night at the Opera" but any Marx Brothers is a good Marx Brothers. Admission is $5 or you can throw in a dinner at the American Hotel for $25 including the movie ticket. Now that's an awesome deal if you ask me. (The American Hotel 631-725-3535)
Finally, if you're having computer trouble STAPLES in Bridgehampton is doing free computer cleanups. They'll help you defrag your computer, scan for viruses and get it running smooth in no time at all. It's free so don't let them sell you anything except for one of the "EASY" buttons! I love those!!
