Sag Harbor Community Notes, March 21


It’s officially spring, though that statement feels as if it’s an April Fool’s Day joke. When will this cold weather stop?

Speaking of stopping, or at least of slowing down, there seems to be no traffic calming plan in sight on Noyac Road in front of Cromer’s. Earlier this month the Southampton Town Board tabled the controversial plan after hearing many passionate pleas from critics.

I personally didn’t like the direction the traffic calming project was headed in but I do agree that the traffic in and out of that parking lot can be menacing. I always park on the side (and I am there pretty much every day, though I also seem to spend quite a lot of time in Schiavoni’s as well) to avoid backing into the cars racing past.

What to do? Does anyone have a good idea?

Talking about food, La Superica is reopening for the season on Thursday, March 21. The restaurant will serve dinner, from Thursdays through Sundays, from 5:30 p.m. to close. The restaurant will open seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For more information, call 725-3388.

The Joshua Levine Memorial Dinner, planned for Sunday, March 24, is sold out. But there are still tickets available for the Judy Carmichael concert to benefit the East End Hospice that same day. The event, held at noon at the American Hotel, will include a champagne luncheon and a show. Tickets are $100, all inclusive. Call the Hotel at 725-3535 for reservations.

Tapovana Ashtanga Healing Center is offering opportunities to dine and to cleanse in the next few weeks.

There will be a cleanse workshop on Friday, March 29, from 7 to 9 p.m., which will include an introduction to Ayurveda and cooking for mind, body and spirit. The cost of the workshop is $90 and advance registration is suggested.

On Saturday, March 30, the center will continue the workshop with a luncheon program from noon to 4 p.m. That program will include talks on Agni, the fire of digestion and transformation, the Ayurvedic concept of individual constitution and imbalances and how nutrition is affected by environment.

Tapovana is also offering takeaway cleanse lunch and dinners from Monday, April 1, through Friday, April 5, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. daily. The cost is $25 for the full day or $15 for each meal.

The center is offering a $100 first-month special for Ashtanga yoga beginners and additional discounts for existing members. Call Corey De Rosa at 678-3905 or email for details.

The Sag Harbor School District has been in the news quite a bit lately but I haven’t seen much mentioned on this particular bit of good news. Several members of the administration, including board president Theresa Samot, district clerk Mary Adamczyk, secretarial assistant Vickie Lawrence and bus supervisor Maude Stevens, were all honored this week with the “Shining Star Award of Excellence” by Long Island by SCOPE Education Services. Congratulations!

The Sag Harbor Community Coalition can also be lauded for its efforts at promoting a sober community by planning an alcohol-free dance at for adults 18 and over at the Bridgehampton Community House on Friday, April 19, at 8 p.m. DJ Twilo will spin.

Admission is $20 and proceeds will benefit the HOM Project, an innovative rock opera to be performed by East End musicians at Guild Hall this coming September. For more information about the dance, contact Lisa Bonner at or (347) 404-1063.

The next Community Coalition meeting is planned for Wednesday, April 3, at Pierson High School. For more information about the Community Coalition, contact Dr. John Oppenheimer at or 725-9456.
