Monster Bash, Pinot & Pork, Piano & Violin Recitals & More

The selection this week is varied--a late night Halloween monster bash, a celebration of Pinot and pork, a special classical recital by violinist Michelle Ross, one by virtuoso pianist Paolo Bartolani, theater, a meet-the-author book reading, a lecture about wild canines on Long Island, and a new photography exhibit opens with a reception. As ever, wineries up and down the Fork showcase musicians all weekend long.

The savviest visitors know to spend at least part of their days outdoors, savoring the fall beauty, visiting farm stands and picking pumpkins, wandering our downtowns to window shop and enjoying our farm-to-table foods. Speaking of farm-to-table foods, this week's Winemaker Sunday series at Noah's features Shinn Estates.
