Cheesy Charlie’s Makes Familiar Transition to Pagano’s Pizza

Pagano’s Pizzeria opened on Nov. 15, replacing the longstanding Cheesy Charlie's Pizzeria, and seems to be the perfect replacement for the popular Cheesy Charlie’s. Joe Pagano, Jr., who had been helping his father run the Pagano's pizzeria in Greenport since closing the location on Route 25 in Southold, said that he’s seeing more and more of his former clientele pop in for Pagano’s signature pies like buffalo chicken and spinach and artichoke, and he’s serving certain soups and other entrée items from Cartselos’ menu to keep her customers coming back.

Georgica Creek Antiques Set To Close in Wainscott

After 30 years at the same Montauk Highway location, Georgica Creek Antiques is closing its doors in Wainscott.

Sue Sinenberg, who runs the antique shop with her mother Jean Sinenberg, said they weren't planning on closing up shop, but, "Someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse." She clarified on Tuesday evening that they rented the space. 

She said she wasn't at liberty to divulge what business would replace hers when she vacates at the end of January, she said the new business would be beneficial to Wainscott. "We wouldn’t let it be Dunkin' Donuts," she said with a laugh.


Sag Harbor's Sen Gets Sister Restaurant in Flatiron District

The owners of Japanese restaurant Sen, on Main Street in Sag Harbor, recently opened the doors on a new location, in Manhattan's Flatiron District.

Tora Matsuoka and Jeff Resnick's new venture Sen NYC opened in late November and is already creating a buzz on food and nightlife blogs.

Thrillist.com called the restaurant "a dark, sexy jungle of sushi and sake centerpieced by a bamboo-and-metal-encased bar."


Shelter Proposal Sparks Calverton Cat Fight

Claws are out over a proposed cat clinic in Calverton, where felines would be neutered and spayed.

Members of the community turned out at Tuesday's town board meeting to protest the proposed facility, which would be set up by the North Fork Animal Welfare League on land owned by Rex Farr on Youngs Avenue, near the current Riverhead Animal Shelter.

According to Farr, who spoke to Patch on Tuesday evening, the facility would not be boarding animals and would serve a critical need.

I don't understand why people are against a cat clinic opening up in Calverton??? If they are not boarding or keeping animals there and are helping the community why is everyone against this?? If a private veterinary clinic were to open would people be so against it???? To me this is very strange as I welcome a clinic that would help people spay and neuter their cats at a low cost. Maybe this will help the overwhelming feral cat population shrink in size. I just don't get it. I welcome it and think it is very needed.

Those against a clinic to help solve the feral cat problem out on the East End are ignorant of the problem. If they were educated about TNR (Trap, neuter, release) programs and the need for spaying and neutering their own pets, there wouldn't be a need for a clinic! I work at an animal shelter and believe me, I have been doing the TNR program for more than 20 years. Yes there is still a need!
