Super Bowl Specials

To help you celebrate the Super Bowl, Smokin’ Wolf in East Hampton is giving away a free 12-pack of beer for every $85 spent on its menu, which features barbecue platters, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and quesadillas. 

If you’re opting for seafood over meat, Stuart’s Seafood in Amagansett is giving a 10-percent discount on cooked lobsters and lobster dinners. Shrimp platters are also available in two sizes: two pounds of large shrimp for $65 or two pounds of medium shrimp for $45. Stuart’s also carries pigs in blankets and other assorted appetizers. The deal is available tomorrow through Sunday. 

The Super Bowl party at Union Cantina in Southampton starts at 5 p.m. on Sunday and features food and drink specials, plus three complimentary raffles. The grand prize is a Friday night cabana at Southampton Social Club with bottle service for 10 people. 

 

Valentine’s Day

Baron’s Cove in Sag Harbor is offering a three-course prix fixe Valentine’s Day menu for $50 per person.

If you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day early, the menu will also be available on Sunday, Feb. 11. Reservations are required. 

Pomegranate will be the featured ingredient on the Valentine’s Day menu at Almond in Bridgehampton. The restaurant is offering a special four-course dinner for $75 per person — which is also available on Feb. 10 — in addition to the regular a la carte menu.

Dye and Dine

The featured artist at this week’s A Night Out With event — a collaboration between the Golden Eagle Studio and Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton — is Traute Worschech, a painter who will teach the art of shibori tie-dyeing (silk scarves will be provided). The workshop takes place on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Golden Eagle on North Main Street in East Hampton and will be followed by a two-course dinner at the restaurant next door.
