THE GREAT GATSBY GETAWAY PACKAGE
No better way to celebrate the grandeur of Baz Luhrmann’s filmic adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s epic novel than in Jamesport at Jedediah Hawkins Inn’s lavish Belvedere Suite with Daisy’s tipple of choice — a bottle of champagne.
In addition to receiving a 10 percent discount on the room and a bottle of champagne on ice, the package includes tickets to the film and a paperback copy of The Great Gatsby. Compare and contrast the movie and the literary classic downstairs in their very own speakeasy.
Two-night stay required on weekends. Call for rates and visit their website for interactive tours of suites.

PROHIBITION STYLE COCKTAILS
Atsby. Among those with literary leanings, the name, lacking just one key letter, is explicably linked to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tragic hero, Jay Gatsby.
Atsby Vermouth, however, is far from a lamentable case. The Mattituck distillery, which opened last fall and makes its eponymous product with locally sourced chardonnay, Finger Lakes apple brandy and exotic botanicals, was recently selected by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to be featured at the Manhattan Cocktail Classic May 17-21. To read more, check out our Q&A with Jill Filipovic, Atsby’s social media manager.
A listing of Atsby Vermouth drinks can be found here.
North Fork Table & Inn in Southold is featuring The Pink Lady, a cocktail made with beefeater gin, Busnel Calvados, house-made pomegranate grenadine and cream.
