The profound and tragic loss last month of Ann Marie and Marco Borghese was felt throughout the East End. Now the family has issued word about a memorial service for the couple next month on August 16. A ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. at the Our Lady of Ostrabrama Church at 3000 Depot Lane in Cutchogue. That evening from 6 to 8 p.m. there will be a memorial concert at the winery featuring Hugh Prestwood and Friends, who have played there before. Admission is free.

You’ve definitely heard of beer on tap; you’ve most likely heard of wine on tap, but a cocktail on tap, premixed, frosty and delicious?
