NEW BURGER: Word on the street is that American Roadside
(337 New York Ave., Huntington) has been sold. When we looked,
there were neither signs on the building nor menus on the
wall, but you could get a burger. Look for new local ownership
under the name Top Bunz.
WINE DEALS: Heres a chance to try some of the
wines that consistently earn a Wine Spectator Award of Excellence
for Jonathans Ristorante (15 Wall St., Huntington 631-549-0055
www.jon-athansristorante.com). Wednesdays and Thursdays, take
30 percent off all bottles of wine. Its a great time
to build a meal around that Turley Zinfandel youve had
your eye on.
TANGO TREAT: The Heckscher Museum of Art will feature
tango music by Serenade Duo, featuring flutist Michelle LaPorte
and guitarist Gerry Saulter, plus classic tango dancing by
renowned dancers Madalyn Klein and Nelson Avila, on Saturday,
Feb. 13, 7 9 p.m. Appetizers from Café Buenos
Aires will be served along with wines from Paumanok Vineyards. $20
for museum members, $25 non-members. www. heckscher.org.
