I am always fascinated by wildlife and there’s been a lot to report on in our area lately. The osprey nest that blew off the perch, the coyote sighting, the turkey on the green. And so I appreciate updates from readers on their own sightings. This week, Peter Robinson emailed me with the following:“The Deerfield osprey chick appears to be OK, judging from its feeding this morning. Great work by everyone to help this family out.” The photo he sent says it all and how nice to get a happy ending.
SoulCycle, the very popular indoor cycling workout, this week opened its third studio on the East End, this time in Water Mill, in the Water Mill Shoppes. The huge studio is 4,000 square feet with 74 bikes available, plus changing rooms, a “listening bar” and a boutique offering private label and SoulCycle’s own original clothing line.
I’ve always been a fan of a “spin” workout when the winter sets in and I look forward to checking out SoulCycle. In my opinion, the intensity of the indoor biking workout is among the best fat burners and muscle toners.
SoulCycle takes it one step further; not only do riders burn calories, get an intense 45-minute cardio workout, but they simultaneously tone their upper bodies using hand weights and do core exercises. For information and class schedule, go to www.soul-cycle.com or call 324-6610.
Next weekend, the Parrish Art Museum has two programs lined up. First, on Friday, July 19, at 6 p.m., will be a screening of “Growing Farmers,” a short documentary by Michael Halsband, which focuses on the challenges facing young farmers on Long Island. The screening will be followed by a discussion with several local farmers. Then on Sunday morning at 11:15, curator Klaus Ottmann will lead a tour of the exhibition “Angels, Demons, and Savages: Pollock, Ossorio, Dubuffet.” There is so much going on at the museum and you can learn about it all with a quick visit to its website, www.parrishart.org.
Speaking of art, I stopped in to see Bruce Lieberman and his art show, “Portraits of Summer,” at the Hampton Hang gallery (behind Suki Zuki). It’s definitely worth seeing; get there before July 25.
