COMING SOON: Whales Tale’s Facebook page teased the unveiling of its soon-to-be next door neighbor, Harbor Head Brewing Company. Sosh Andriano, owner of Whales Tale (81 Fort Salonga Road, Northport), revealed his plans to open the brewery last March and said he would be ready to open it sometime this year. On Friday, the Whales Tale Facebook page posted a picture of a beer growler with the Harbor Head logo on it. Hours later, Harbor Head’s own Facebook page posted some additional photos, including a shot of the brewing area, and a prototype of the brewery’s custom four-pack carrying case. Earlier this month, the page also posted a promotional video for the 85 Fort Salonga Road brewery, which will be footsteps away from Whales Tale. The brewery’s website (Harborheadbrew.com) is also live, and lists planned hours of operation as Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-10 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.; and Sunday, 8 p.m.-11 p.m. There are also four different beers listed on the website — a pilsner, summer ale, hefeweizen and grapefruit.
VEGAN POWER: There’s a new sweet on the menu at Stella Blue in Huntington, and it’s not a scale buster. The Banana PB Chocolate Chip Power Cookie is packed with oats, banana, powdered peanut butter, un-sweet applesauce and more, but it’s also vegan and gluten free. Another newly-added vegan dish is the sweet potato boats, which are loaded with kale, beans, corn, onions and a walnut cayenne sauce. Stella Blue is located at 188 New York Ave.
DELICIOUS: Students in Harborfields School District’s Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School recently learned the importance of fractions in everyday life by creating Shamrock Shakes in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. The students in Nancy Sordi and Melissa Reisen’s math classes learned how to properly measure ingredients and follow directions when determining how much of each item to put in the blender. Sordi explained to her classes that fractions are used constantly in daily life and particularly in cooking. Students put their fraction skills to the test with the end result being a delicious and healthy green shake. Classes sipped on their shakes while completing a worksheet as a group on what they learned. The students were also challenged to determine how much ingredients they would need to serve the shakes to a larger number of students.
