Friday begins the last week of July 2015, meaning — like it or not — the summer is half over. On Friday, there will be live music at dozens of wineries, restaurants and breweries. Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and Jedediah Hawkins Inn both have live music Friday. Several places are open especially late, so if you don’t get to the North Fork until the evening, Bistro 72, Diliberto Winery, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company and Alure are all open with live music past 8 p.m..
On Saturday there are several not-to-be-missed events. Sparkling Pointe’s annual hommage to Brazil’s Carnival enters its sixth year. Costumed carnival dancers, a Samba band, as well as specials on wine and several food trucks will make it a day to remember. Long Ireland Beer Company is having its first annual PINTwood Derby. Register and bring your pinewood car down for a day at the races. Roanoke Vineyards has Project Seven, a continuing event where they look at seven different wines produced in fields managed by the same vineyard manager. Let’s not forget live music and vineyard tours throughout the region.
