Drink And Draw

Beginning November 21 and continuing on December 19, January 16, February 20, March 19, April 16, and May 21, from 7 to 9 PM, participants will meet with local artist Brianna Ashe at Townline BBQ to unwind and unleash their creative sides by creating art on uncommon surfaces such as napkins, coasters, and receipts.

Ashe is an artist inspired by East Hampton. She has spent her last seven years on the East End teaching high school art, helping numerous artists in their studios, installing shows, and making work of her own. In her free time, she can be found at home making soup or roasting a chicken. You may have seen her at one time or another sitting at a local bar, drinking a beer, and drawing on a napkin or coaster.

Art supplies will be provided. Registration is $10 and includes happy-hour prices on food and drinks throughout the night for participants age 21 and over. Register online at www.guildhall.org.

Who Needs Coffee?

A coffee convo will be held with Theresa Belkin of Hampton Coffee as part of The Moment series at Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Monday, November 18, from 10 to 11 AM. Belkin is the co-owner and CFO of Hampton Coffee Company, a 25-year-old local coffee roaster and espresso bar and café company here on the East End. Under Belkin’s leadership, Hampton Coffee Company has grown from a single espresso bar in Water Mill (one of the first Third Wave coffee roasters on the entire east coast when it opened) to a multi-million dollar company that still is locally-owned and community-focused.
