PIZZA PARTY: Our friends over at Campari Ristorante (225 Main
St., Northport, 631-757-6700, www.campariristorante.com),
across the street from the John W. Engeman theater, are doing
a little something special for the kids this Cow Harbor Day.
On Sunday, Sept. 16, the village closes Main Street from 12-5
p.m. for a parade and street fair, with performances and vendors
selling food and goods in front of their stores. In addition
to featured food items, Campari will have a build-your-own
personal pizza station, where kids can roll the dough, create
a pizza with cheese (and add pepperoni if they want), and
bake them in Camparis ovens. Best of all, there is no
charge for the service, or the food!
SWIRLS & TWIRLS: Long Islands fifth location of
Swirls and Twirls, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, opens
in Greenlawn (769 Pulaski Road, Greenlawn, in the Waldbaums
Shopping Center) next weekend, giving customers an opportunity
to taste something good and do something good. At the opening
on Saturday, Sept. 22, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., 50 percent of the proceeds
will benefit the Elwood and Harborfields Booster Clubs. What
a way to introduce themselves to the neighborhood! Franchisee
owners, brothers Frank and Danny Capobianco, say to stop by
to savor the ultimate healthy indulgence
24 flavors, more than 50 toppings, and endless possibilities
for half price. Opening day will also feature music,
games, raffles and live radio broadcasts from WBLI and 94X.
SHORT AND SWEET: We cant think of many things sweeter
than a cookbook full of dessert recipes, and thats just
what the folks at SeniorNet have been busy putting together.
The volunteers at SeniorNet, a program at Family Service League
in Huntington and Yaphank that works to educate seniors on
using computers and the Internet, compiled their favorite
recipes in Short and Sweet, Delicious Dessert Recipes
55 pages of them! Lending a hand, the Huntington Town
Board sponsored the printing of the book. Were excited
to say we cant wait to make the sesame seed cookies
and pumpkin cheesecake!
