Did we see you at Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. yesterday?

We sent local photographer David Benthal to the brewery on Sunday for its annual Valentine’s Day party. We will feature some of the pics on the society page in our first issue of northforker magazine, so be sure to be on the lookout!

Attendees enjoyed beer, oysters and music. Greenport Oyster Company brought the shellfish and Robert Bruey provided the tunes.

Be sure to pick the inaugural issue of northforker magazine when it hits newsstands this March.

And if you’re out and about, use tag #northforker on Instagram for the chance to be featured on our site or magazine.

See more pics from the party below. (more…)

Little Creek Oyster Farm and Market is hosting “Vinyl Night” from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Thursdays this winter.

Here’s how it works: Dust off your favorite old (or contemporary!) records and bring them down to the Bootleg Alley shop. If you’re feeling brave, you’re free to put them on the turntable and introduce fellow customers to your tunes. (more…)
