Every town can boast about something whether the restaurants, sports teams, scenery, weather, etc.  Long Island is made up of many towns that have a different flavor and feel.  This weekend we went to a local brewery in Patchogue called Blue Point Brewing Company.  We went on a tour and learned how they brew their different varieties of beer.  Whenever I am in a new bar I always try the local beer on draught.  Blue Point is by far (in my limited tasting experience) the best I have tasted so far.  My favorite is called a black and blue - they take oatmeal stout and mix it with blueberry ale.  Amazing.  In fact, I'm drinking one right now.

Let me know if you have a favorite local beer.

Another local favorite, for breakfast, is Toast Coffee House in Port Jefferson.  This place has ruined breakfast at most other places because nothing really compares.  I recommend the Hawaiian Quesadilla and the Good Burrito.  Laura always gets the French toast or pancake special of the day - Today was Apple Pie Pancakes (she housed them).  Toast also serves tappas on the weekends that I have not tried yet but will sometime soon.  Along with a great breakfast, Port Jefferson offers an historic downtown to walk and a ferry to Connecticut.

I'm curious as to what's in the Hawaiian Quesadilla and the Good Burrito. Care to divulge?

Just saw Ben (my brother) over the fourth of July weekend. Passing along a hello from him to you.

Grace & peace! @pril (Bivens)

Hey April...nice to hear from you!

The Hawaiian Quesadilla has egg, ham, pineapple and green onions.

The Good Burrito has egg, spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese.

Both come with homemade salsa. Enjoy!

Yeah, I'll try to whip that up at home for my sweet husband. He LOVES quesadillas.

I really enjoyed the post I read today about hope & politics. Good stuff, Kevin. Keep it up!
