Shakespeare in Mitchell Park; Civil War Music in Southold; First Friday on Love Lane; Sunset Lighthouse Cruise

Shakespeare comes to Mitchell Park as Northeast Stage performs Twelf Night three nights running. Civil War music fills Southold Library, as costumed musicians help mark 150 years of the War's end. Harbes Family Farm celebrates tomatoes (and so should you). Friday Love Lane welcomes you after hours (till 9 pm) with bites, sips, music--the perfect transition from elsewhere's bustle to North Fork bliss. Interesting talks and films abound. Two talks feature local history and one shares secrets of shipwrecks and Spanish gold. One film documents a local artist's project in the Bronx; another looks at Central American coffee growers.

Take a sunset lighthouse cruise, including a stop at Bug Light. Explore creek nightlife by flashlight.
