Break out the pastels and the whites… it’s now officially ok to wear your fancy duds! Well as of Sunday anyway. So after the bunny has dropped the basket, where are some great places to wear your best bonnet? Well look no further, Hamptons Chatter is here to help. Here are my top 3 suggestions:
Page at 63 Main in Sag Harbor (page63main.com, 631-725-1810) will have an a la carte brunch menu from 11 to 4 featuring such holiday favorites as leg of lamb and Eggs Benedict. They’ll also have plenty of champagne and mimosas to help with that headache from the all the little kiddies sugar high!
|So CUTE.. and hopefully not on any menu!
Topping Rose in Bridgehampton (toppingrosehouse.com, 631-537-0870) will also have an al carte brunch menu featuring everything Brioche Donuts to Painted Hill Short Rib hash from 11:30 to 3p. They’ll also have activities for the kids and a giant Easter Bunny around for photographs. You’ll be able to order EXTRA champagne without drama. Earplugs will not be provided.
Barons Cove in Sag harbor (baronscove.com, 631-725-2101) will be hosting an Easter egg hunt for the kids… so hopefully they’ll be outside. Brunch will be served from 11 to 4p and feature all your holiday favorites including lamb, roast beef and rabbit stew. OK, actually there is no rabbit stew…. that would be kind of cruel. Don’t cha think!? I mean… “Thank you Easter Bunny for the chocolate… now jump into the pot!?”
Speaking of Easter Bunnies, they need to be watching their eggs and hops these days. While I’m not sure if it’s a real warning or where the heck it originates, there is a message circulating on the internet and Facebook about there being a larger number of Hawks this season on the east coast. The alleged warning has been issued by “Park Rangers” and “Veterinarians” to pet owners who have dogs or cats that weigh less then 12 pounds.
|WARNING: FOR OWNERS OF SMALL PETS
Apparently our small furry friends run the risk of being swooped away. I actually had a friend who swore that happened to her pet a few years back but I question that particular incident and attribute it more to her 3 martini breakfast. “I saw it… my dog flew away!” Kind of scary considering it was a German Shepard. Anyway, all kidding aside I did some digging online and while the “warning” may possibly be bogus, the risk is actually quite real. But before you panic and call your local veterinarian for advice or veteran with a gun on addressing the potential problem, just remember these birds of prey are FEDERALLY PROTECTED! So what can you do? Well here is are a few tips for keeping your pets safe.
-Keep them leashed and supervise when outdoors.
-Remove bird feeders. They attract small birds and mice which in tern attract raptors.
-Put hhiny objects that move out of the yard, such as silver streamers. They will scare off the birds.
-Build a pen with a wire mesh for your pet to play.
So keep your pets safe, have a great weekend and remember SUMMER IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER. Which means traffic. Yeah!
