MAC’S FINE WINE DINNER:
How can one of Long Island’s top steakhouses get even
better? It has happened at Mac’s Steakhouse with the
addition of celebrated wine connoisseur Juan Ernesto Hernandez.
Best known for his contributions to Miami’s ultra-hot
restaurant scene, Hernandez has selected some wonderfully
eclectic, boutique wines as well as some familiar names to
complement the restaurant’s award-winning cuisine. Join
him for a special four-course wine dinner this Tuesday night,
August 22. Six wines will be poured to complement dishes ranging
from lobster consommé to an exceptional Foodie favorite
filet mignon. For fine food and wine lovers, it’s a
treat at $75 per person. Reservations and information, call
Mac’s Steakhouse at 631 549-5300. Tell them, the Foodies
HAPPY B’DAY RACHEL: America’s
favorite chef, Food TV’s hottie Rachel Ray is about
to turn 38. Born in Cape Cod, Mass on August 25, 1968, Rachel
has taken the foodie industry by storm. TV shows, books and
magaziness, and a photo gallery that make some drool –
not bad for the 38 year-old foodie. Rachel, have a happy one!
YOUNG & CLASSY TEAM: We love to see
how local eateries describe the waitstaff they’d like
to hire. One can learn about both image and quality by perusing
the help wanteds. Take this description in a recent ad by
105 Harbor in Cold Spring Harbor. “Seeking Energetic,
Clean Cut Individual with Waiter/Server Experience to be part
of this young and classy team. Must be able to engage the
customers. Will be responsible for both ala carte and catered
events. Must be able to manage team of busboys and back waiters.
. . College students with prior restaurant experience welcomed!”
And health benefits are available! Interested in working?
Call Louie or Tina at 631-367-3166. Want to be part of the
crowd served by the young and classy team? Check them out!
ICE CREAM SANDWICHES: Just because they’re
designed for use with the kids, doesn’t mean the big
kids can’t have the fun. Williams Sonoma is offering
“Ice Cream Sandwich Molds” that will enable you
to transform soft cookies or chewy brownies into fun shapes
– a cow, a star and a pig and then layer ice cream,
frozen yogurt or sorbet in between. You or your kids can create
sweet, cool treats on a hot day. We like the idea of putting
a batch in the fridge and saving for an after barbeque treat.
The molds are dishwasher safe and a set of three at Williams-Sonoma.com
is $14 plus shipping.
QUESTION: What is the ratio of an igloo’s
circumference to its diameter? Answer: Eskimo Pi
SASSY WITH ATTITUDE: In contrast to 105
Harbor’s want ad, Bungalow Bills Saloon (61 Larkfield
Rd) in East Northport asks its potential staff, “Are
you outgoing? energetic? Love to have a good time while making
GREAT money?” And proclaim, “We’re looking
for barmaids who are sassy and have a bit of attitude. Experience
helps, but is not necessary. We will train. You’ll get
the crowd going as you stomp along to the best Southern Rock,
and Classic Country Jukebox on the Island.” Ask for
