Massapequa’s Reflections Luau

Posted by: The Bristal

We had a Reflections Luau here in Massapequa and we all had an amazing time! We all headed out into the courtyard to enjoy the warm summer weather. The Aloha Dance Troupe stopped by and put on a wonderful Hula Dance show. Some of us were brave enough to put on the skirts and get up there with them for a few lessons! We’re certainly making the most of this wonderful Long Island summer.

We learned all about the artist Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai, art of the 1700′s, Japanese printmaking and simplified art during a lecture here in Massapequa. To celebrate Hokusai’s style, we decided to give one stroke ink painting a try. We got together one evening, sipped plum wine and snacked on spring rolls while we all tried our hand at it. We all had a great time!

The Westbury/Carle Place Chamber of Commerce hosted A Taste of Westbury / Carle Place at Westbury Manor. For this event, Chef Mark Hann from Massapequa, Chef Amanda Ciniglio from East Northport and Chef Joe Albert from Sayville each prepared a signature dish the week before. They tasted the three dishes and selected Mark’s Pan-Seared Halibut to be served at A Taste of Westbury / Carle Place. Chefs Mark Hann, Patrick Sheppard and Daniel Cucinotta, all from Massapequa, represented The Bristal at the event and did what they always do: made delicious food! The final dish was Pan-Seared Halibut over Roast Sweet Corn and Black Bean Salsa topped with Lump Crab and Horseradish Aioli. Everyone who attended really loved it, and our table was crowded all night! Thank you to everyone who attended A Taste of Westbury / Carle Place, and to the chefs for doing another amazing event.

This month, the horticulture group gathered together with Horticultural Therapist, Donna. Each time she comes in, we learn something new about a new species of plant life. In celebration of the summer, we planted Hibiscus. We learned all about the plant and where it grows naturally. Donna has an abundance of knowledge about plants, and we love when she comes in to lead our horticulture group here in Massapequa!
