Nomaterra has the perfect weekend planned for those looking to create a Memorial Day weekend that’s unforgettable. Sip wine and watch the sunset beachside What can be better than watching a sunset while sipping on a delicious glass of wine? Luckily, Lieb Cellars offers estate grown grab-and-go boxed wines for the beach or boat, as well as kegs of wine for larger parties. You can’t go wrong with their nationally recognized reserve Pinot Blanc and Blanc de Blancs sparkling wines, or try a more medium-bodied red, such as their Bridge Lane Red Blend, a dry red wine comprised of black cherry, cedar, and spice flavors. While sipping wine is wonderful by itself, pairing wine with the right fare enhances the entire experience. We recommend perusing Lieb’s food and wine pairing suggestions, which focuses on some of the local foods from the East End of Long Island. Catch a concert while raising money for a social cause The Surf Lodge, a much sought-after bohemian escape, is partnering with eBay Giving Works to raise money for the Montauk Playhouse with a private performance by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros on May 25th.

The Surf Lodge has an impressive line-up in 2014 for their ever-popular FREE Summer Concert Series  - so great musical acts will be going on all summer long. Browse an art gallery East Hamtpon’s reputation as an artist’s colony began with painter Jackson Pollock, as he resided in what was known as the Pollock-Krasner House and Studio. East Hampton’s Guild Hall has one of the oldest non-juried museum exhibitions on Long Island and is one of the few non-juried exhibitions still offered.  The top honor is a solo show in the museum’s Spiga Gallery. This exhibition will be on display from May 3 till June 7. In addition, be sure to view Arlene Slavin’s upcoming exhibit, Intersections. Guild Hall will exhibit a new series of sculptures and paintings referencing work Slavin exhibited in the mid-1970s. Similar to her early work, these sculptures and paintings are pencil, diagonal, grid-based, with layers of lush, translucent stained colors.
