  FRIDAY FOODIE            FLICK


       "Fast Times at                    Ridgemont High"

Fast Times at Ridgemont High - Fast food and teenagers, the two go hand-in-hand and both are at the core of this film. While not a traditional "Foodie" movie, 'Fast Times' incorporates food into many of the film's crucial scenes. From Mark and Stacy's disastrous dinner date to Brad's humiliation at Captain Hook Fish and Chips to Spicoli's pizza delivery during class, food figures big in these character's lives and in this movie.

     Pick Your Own Berries on the East End

Summer is prime time for picking berries on Long Island. Berry bushes are low to the ground, easy to access and berries are small enough for little fingers to grasp. It's a great activity for children and adults.  Late July is peak season for blueberries and raspberries. Blackberries ripen in August. The East End is home to five great berry picking farms. Be sure to call the farms ahead of time before heading out, to confirm their hours and berry availability, as inventory sells quickly.

   The East End is coming to Manhattan this summer

Get ready for the first ever "Taste of NY Wine & Food" store in Grand Central Terminal. The shop, slated to open in August 2014, will be on the west side of the terminal, adjacent to the Biltmore Room, across from Track 37. Supported by the Governor's Taste NY marketing campaign, the MTA chose "One Woman Wines & Vineyards" in Southold, on Long Island's North Fork to be the store's operator. "One Woman Wines & Vineyards" says they will feature an abundant display of New York wines and food items produced throughout New York State, such as Brooklyn Brewery, Hudson Baby Bourbon, McLure's and Baldwin Hill. "Taste of NY" was launched last May 2013 as part of New York's biggest tourist campaign in decades, focusing on the state's food and beverage industry, as well as promoting agri-business across New York. "Taste NY" stores have already opened at LaGuardia Airport and the New Baltimore rest area of the New York State Thruway, south of Albany. The move is seen as another step towards positioning New York State's best food and wine onto the world's stage.
