#BAGELSFOR91: Donald Rosner, a manager at the Hewlett location of Long Island bagel store chain Bagel Boss, which has a location in East Northport, has joined the push to get star NHL player John Tavares to re-sign with the New York Islanders. Rosner wrote on Twitter last week, amid Tavares’ contract talks with several NHL teams, including the Islanders, “John, I own a bagel store. The best bagels in New York. If you stay with us, I will personally deliver bagels to you and your wife fresh every morning for the rest of your, or my, life. We love you, John. Please, stay here... and get us a cup.” Rosner also posted a picture of a package filled with fresh, blue and orange bagels that he shipped off on Monday to Los Angeles, where Tavares was set to meet with NHL team representatives. To join the conversation, search for #BagelsFor91 on Twitter. Bagel Boss of East Northport is located at 1941 Jericho Turnpike.
NOW SERVING: Six Harbors Brewing Company (243 New York Ave., Huntington village) now also offers freshly-made cheese boxes for patrons. The cheese pairs “perfectly with our Bay Hills Blueberry,” but also mixes well with any of the brewery’s offerings, including new addition Buddy’s Golden Lager, an easy session beer that is low in bitterness and light in body, and is named after Six Harbors’ own Buddy the Brew Dog.
RED, WHITE & HONU: Huntington village’s Honu Kitchen + Cocktails is throwing a patriotic party to kick off the upcoming July 4 celebrations. On Wednesday, 5 p.m.-12 midnight, the 363 New York Ave. bar and eatery will offer a double-header happy hour (5-7 p.m. and 9-10 p.m.) with $6 cocktails and $6 bar snacks. There will also be a DJ and dancing beginning at 10:30 p.m. For more info, call 631-421-6900.
BARKIN’ BRUNCH: While The Refuge always offers Sunday brunch from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., the Melville eatery adds a puppy-friendly twist when its outdoor deck is open. That will be the case on Sunday, July 15, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., when The Refuge hosts its Barkin’ Brunch to raise money for a local shelter or animal-related charity. There will be raffles, prizes and treats for humans and pooches alike. The festivities are open to leashed dogs and their owners.
