It’s always happy hour at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack for police officers and first responders who present their current badges or other identification to the bartender on duty. Perks include $5 shots, $6.25 garbage fries, $5.50 nachos, $6 wings, and beer and wine specials. The 1770 House in East Hampton is offering several dining deals through April 19. From Sundays through Thursdays, except holidays, a $35 three-course prix fixe menu will be available, as will $9 wine and $5 beer selections.

Losing weight is one of the top New Year's resolutions and one of the least successful. Cooking for yourself is an enormously helpful step toward losing weight because you have complete control over your meal.

Over near Three Mile Harbor, the Blend, the new restaurant opened by the chef and owner of Michael’s, is serving dinner from 5 to 9 nightly. Nick and Toni’s restaurant in East Hampton has teamed up with the Golden Eagle Studio, a nearby neighbor on North Main Street, to initiate a series of dinners with featured artists who will discuss an art-related topic, give a demonstration, or teach an art class at the studio before joining the group for dinner at the restaurant.

I like to celebrate and plan to have a grand meal . . . at home, with friends who can walk home afterward. Driving around East Hampton drunk in the wee hours is just another way of saying, “I can’t wait to see my name in the police blotter of The East Hampton Star next Thursday!”
