March 2020 Features
75 Main, Southampton, NY, USA
Restaurants
75 Main - Southampton, NY - Beef Hash - photo by Luxury Experience Some restaurants keep getting better with age. Having recently dined at the upscale restaurant, 75 Main owned by Zack Erdem, in the beginning of March 2020, we can confidently state that they are one of them. The Southampton, New York restaurant opened in 2010 and back when most restaurants in the famed Hamptons were only open seasonally, the charismatic and pioneer visionary Zach Erdem kept his restaurant open year-round. An inviting, comfortably chic and contemporary ambience and an excellent and diverse menu created by Chef Mark Militello makes the restaurant a winner.

The Art of Making Glass at The Hotspot Glass Studio, Fairfield, CT, USA
Adventures
Hotspost Glass Studio - Fairfield, CT - Finished Products The "Adventure KidsTM" aka Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta had the ultimate creative adventure blowing glass at The Hotspot Glass Studio in Fairfield, Connecticut. We have always been fascinated by glass art, whether admiring large-scale works by glass artist Dale Chihuly or watching Swedish glass-blowers hand-blowing our wine glasses. The  excitement in transforming liquid sand (aka molten glass) into a beautiful glass art creation has always been high on our "to do" list.  What we learned from our class at The Hot Spot Studio is that the art of making glass is a dual process of transformation, for the art created, and for the artist who created it, and we loved what we created!

Performances
Frederick Gravel - Fear and Greed Watching dancer, choreographer, musician, singer Frédérick Gravel perform his U.S. premiere of his solo contemporary dance work, Fear and Greed at the Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut was mesmerizing. The last time we saw this inspired dancer perform was in 2017 as part of his ensemble. For 2019, his solo work was a much more demanding role opening with just Frédérick Gravel on stage. Like moths drawn to a flame, we could not take our eyes off his performance.
