It’s that time of the week again, East Enders. It’s time to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the weekend and make some tasty plans. And, luckily for you, this week you won’t have to look very far to find some: on Saturday, May 3rd, Bridgehampton’s own Topping Rose House will host its first ever Pork & Craft Beer Festival.
On Friday night at 7:30 p.m., Topping Rose House will host a wine dinner in the barn featuring Maria Sinskey, culinary director of Napa’s 100 percent certified organic winery, Robert Sinskey Vineyards.
Crisp suckling pig, local vegetables and and expert chef. Add to that wine from Wölffer and Bedell. What you get is a delicious dinner at the Topping Rose House to ward off the winter blues. The dinner is $75 per person.
Local restaurants are offering specials for Valentine’s Day, and you can even be single. Maybe dinner at the bar, or have Love Lane Kitchen deliver your own breakfast any day of the heart-shaped weekend. Or take your sweetie to Almond for the four-course blood orange menu.

The restaurant-inn will be hosting its first farmers market on the grounds in the restored barn. The market will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
We’re talking about wood pigeon, partridge, duck and vension: It’s Topping Rose’s Winter Game Weekend from January 18 through 20.

Over the holidays, the Sag Harbor cheesemonger Michael Cavaniola unearthed a 1977 magazine article about his family’s cheese store in Fort Lee, N.J., that described an uncanny resemblance to the cheese shop, kitchen and wine shop that Michael and wife Tracey run today.
