CELEBRITY CHEF AT ISLAND BREEZE
Another great announcement is Celebrity Chef Stephen Daniello has packed up his recipes and moved across the street to The Island Breeze.
The legend is returning to the island as the Executive Chef of The new and improved Island Breeze for the 2013 summer season.
Chef Stephen has been in Cherry Grove and the Pines for over 12 seasons now and has played a major roll in it's culinary and restaurant growth. Chef Stephen first arrived in Cherry Grove back in the early 90's as a day tripper and weekend club kid. He returned in 2002 as member of the island staff at the newly opened Floyd's breakfast and lunch restaurant with (owner) Brett. After his first season ended Stephen spent the next 4 seasons as a waiter in the Pines at the Pines Bistro with (0wners) PJ and Patrick.
Chef Stephen returned to the Grove in 2009 to take over Jumping Jacks Seafood Shack, now the Sand Castle on the beach, and gracefully restored it to it's traditional beach style menu under owners Kyle and Anthony.
After Jumping Jacks sold to new owners Chef Stephen worked his way to the top and successfully reined over the 5 Star Top of the Bay Bistro owned by Ron King. It was there that the Celebrity Chef was born and a culinary explosion changed the course of Fire Island forever. Now after his 3 season rein at Top of the Bay as one of Fire Island premier chefs Stephen, is about to embark on one the most difficult tasks in the history of the Grove.
With a newer and much bigger state of the art kitchen and much larger dining room all eyes will be on Celebrity Chef this season.
Diamond Dave (Owner), John Doyle (Manager), and Chef Stephen will be there to cater to your culinary and dining expectations.
And more surprises are happening. Be prepared to see television crews roaming the boardwalks. We will have more information on that soon. Yes we are packing our bags, we love off season the best and we will be there sometime in May. Join us for the fun!
LEGEND JOHNY POOL REDUX
The legend himself, Johny Pool, known to millions of radio listeners as Uncle Johny on Elvis Duran And The Morning Show, once again returns to the island. Yes, Johny is packing his blenders and all his drink recipes and can be seen at Cherry's On The Bay daily. We love Johny, he has known me since I was a kid, many centuries ago. Back then, we gutted a fish to use as a blender.
DJ SUSAN LEVINE RETURNS
I won't use a photo of our Famed DJ Susan Levine, she hates my photos and no matter how good I think they are, she will bitch. But Susan after a wild winter spinning at the top clubs in New York City, is returning to Cherry's On The Bay. We can't wait to hear the sounds of summer with Susan spinning her top hits.

Although the Hamptons are best known as a summer destination, one of the best ways to experience the Hamptons is by taking a family vacation during the autumn season. As the beautiful fall weather settles in the East End, Southampton Inn will begin offering family-friendly midweek and weekend rates for the month of September, 2012. Nestled on more than five acres of manicured lawns and beautifully landscaped grounds, this perfect Hamptons home-away-from-home is steps away from designer boutiques, art galleries, parks and museums. During the fall months, Southampton Inn provides guests with access to a variety of local, seasonal activities. Every autumn, local farms and vineyards enjoy bountiful harvests. Fall is the best time of year to experience a wine tasting at a local vineyard such as the Wölffer Estate, enjoy a scenic lighthouse tour and hike or horseback ride through the falling leaves. It is also the only time of year to go pumpkin and apple picking, navigate a corn maze and enjoy a haunted hayride.
Pure Style At Southampton Inn
This fall Southampton Village will celebrate the season with a series of exciting events that embrace art, music, food, entertainment, history and fun!

Not able to speak a word of English, a precocious 9-year old boy named Paco, the only one in his town who knows Spanish, becomes his translator. Rewriting Ernesto’s mysterious and questionable past, Paco turns him into a hero and a celebrity, motivating the entire town to rally behind Ernesto to help rebuild his plane. When a seedy Colombian detective arrives and threatens to reveal a dark secret about Ernesto, the town begins to question who they can trust.
