Classic Cars, Solstice Concerts, Wine Release Party, Kayaking, Puppies!

This weekend you can drool over mint condition classic cars (figuratively speaking of course, unless you sip too much Pindar wine while you ogle the cars).  Or you can play with puppies at beautiful Osprey Dominion Vineyards, and support Last Chance Animal Rescue. Celebrate the solstice with a Friday night concert at Martha Clara Vineyard, or a Saturday music fest at Lieb Cellars.

Enjoy the release of Dilberto Winery's newest (2013) Chardonnay and Sauvingon Blanc accompanied by live music and a raw bar.

Kayak Mashomack preserve on Shelter Island, and stay for two nights of violin performances by Perlman alums.

And of course there's tons of downtown shops and galleries to meander. A reason to head to Cutchogue's downtown in particular: the antique sale at the Old Town Arts & Crafts Guild on Saturday.
