When Two Become One: La Fondita Moves to Coche Comedor for the Winter

It’s cuffing season for La Fondita.

Starting last week, the casual Mexican eatery in Amagansett is operating out of its sister restaurant, Coche Comedor, during the off-season, moving right next door to offer its popular take-out menu at the Coche bar, as well as through phone orders.

The La Fondita menu will still be available to enjoy at the bar, with Coche cocktails, on Wednesday through Friday only, from 12 until 3 p.m. For more information, call 631-267-5709 or visit

Sweet After-School Special at Rowdy Hall

East Hampton’s Rowdy Hall, located at 10 Main Street in the Parrish Mews, has announced a new after-school special for kids, on Monday through Friday, from 3 to 6 p.m. — and it’s one they’re going to like.

For every entrée they order, they get a free ice cream sundae.

Rowdy Meals, which range from $10 to $14, include pan-roasted salmon, chicken wings with honey mustard or barbecue sauce, grilled chicken skewers, all-natural chicken fingers, and grilled cheese, each served with a choice of Mr. Smith’s Salad, French fries or seasonal vegetables.

Baron’s Cove: No Tricks, Just Treats

At Baron’s Cove, fall is for fireplaces and chowder, pumpkins and pino, crisp cocktails and comfort food. And, of course, Oktoberfest.

The fourth annual celebration — this year on Saturday, October 19, from 1 to 5 p.m. — is known for its festive treats, from German-style pretzels with beer cheese to bratwurst and sauerkraut served on baguettes with a side of mustard. Celebrate the season with a beer on tap, or relax with a glass of German wine, while listening to live polka and German-inspired music with the Tom & Lisa Band from 2 to 5 p.m., while taking in views over Sag Harbor Cove.

Later this month, stop by for a scary-good time during Haunted Happy Hour on Thursday, October 31, from 4 to 8 p.m. Libations include $8 wines by the glass, $6 beers, and specialty cocktails, including the Spiced Cider Margarita and Apple Bourbon Cider.

Town & Country Real Estate Welcomes Michael Reid

Drones are not only the future of photography, according to Michael Reid. They are the future of real estate.

The licensed real estate salesperson, who recently joined Town & Country Real Estate’s team, has an eye for photography and marketing savvy, and comes into the field after working with drone photography for businesses across the East End.

“I made the move into the real estate business after seeing the increased use of drone photos and especially the use of video tours,” Reid said in a statement. “I feel that I have an advantage by using video tours and social media to market the client’s property. I enjoy seeing a client’s satisfaction when they see their property being showcased.”

Reid, who lives in East Hampton Village with his wife, Laura, and their two sons, has deep roots in his community as a volunteer with the East Hampton Fire Department, and lieutenant of Engine Company #2. When he isn’t working full time as a public safety dispatcher in Southampton Village, he enjoys kayaking and fishing.
