Storytelling dinners in Amagansett inspire all five senses

Tabling Time At Rosie’s




Join The Independent and Rosie’s in Amagansett for Tabling Time, a series of storytelling evenings throughout the month of October. Guests are invited to share a story, or listen in, while enjoying a locally sourced meal. Each event takes place each Thursday, and will include special guests telling tales about a different topic of discussion.

         The event will kick off with “Birth and Rebirth” and will feature story telling by The Independent’s Associate Editor Bridget LeRoy and her daughter writer, director, and actress Georgia Warner. Warner has worked on and off-Broadway, and on TV shows including “Law & Order” and HBO’s “The Deuce,” and at local theaters including Bay Street and Guild Hall. Lynn Blumenfeld of the Montauk-based agency Blumenfeld + Fleming, also known as Lynn Blue, local music legend, will share her experience with “Rebirth.”

         During the evening guests will enjoy a locally sourced three-course meal from Rosie’s notable co-head chefs Leo Mamaril and Josh Cohen. Mamaril previously worked at Blue Hill at Stone Barns and Cohen at Gem and The Flower Shop. Menu items include items like panzanella, kale salad, brick chicken, or MKT fish. And for dessert enjoy a choice of ganache or poached pear. The storytelling and food is meant to inspire all five senses. Rosie’s co-owners, Christina Isaly and Frank Trentacoste, source food from Bhumi Farm, which is also owned by Trentacoste.

         It’s real stories told by real people. In between courses those who sign up will share a story that is three to five minutes on a specific topic. Topics include “Wisdom” on October 10, “Love” on October 17, “Sacrifice” on October 24, and “Death/Fear” on Halloween, October 31.

“Toy Story” screenwriter, NPR host, and producer Alec Sokolow will share his “Wisdom.” Astrologist Monte Farber, artist and performer Fred Raimondo, and writer Heather Buchanan will all tell stories about “Love.” Four-time Emmy-award winning producer and writer Angela LaGreca will discuss “Sacrifice.” On Halloween, Taylor Berry, the founder of Berry & Co bookstore will lead “Death/Fear.” Stay tuned for more as we announce more special guests.
