Southampton Is Hooked

first_imgAmid a slew of storefronts closed down in the village of Southampton, a restaurant opens that gives locals and tourists alike a hope for a thriving village, and something new to boast about.Michael Gluckman, whose prior establishments include Boathouse, Madison and Main, and Service Station, has teamed up with chef partner John Sagadraca and managing partner, Hillary Steedle, to open The Tackle Box, a year-round establishment taking over the former space of Little Red. With a beautiful outdoor area, the family-friendly venue has lawn benches, outdoor swings, and a lounge set up, all tucked under an awning and hidden by hedges. The interior layout hasn’t been changed from the former tenant, but has been painted blue, with sea boat rope, pictures of surfers, and all things nautical, making it casual yet comfortable.And then there’s the food. Sagadraca’s studied at the Culinary Institute of America and has worked at Michelin-starred Daniel, Bar Boulud, Colonie, and Chez Moi, to name a few.The raw bar sampler, including violet cove oysters with uni from Orient Point, little neck clams, and cocktail shrimp with tomato, cucumber, onion, and jalapeños — a personal favorite.Next, two lobster rolls sitting side by side. Sagadraca puts a spin on the typical New England-style choices and offers one with hot uni butter and the other wasabi sesame, both of which proved to be equally as rewarding as they were creative.Following that were two dishes that would possibly be served as my last dying meal at sea: charred Spanish octopus with chorizo and smashed fingerling potatoes, and seared local sea scallops with Long Island sweet corn succotash. Dessert included a key lime pie and chocolate cake. All cocktails are made with fresh juices and, for the eco-friendly diner, all straws are made of actual straw.The menu rotates every other week, always providing what’s fresh, local, and inventive. Based off of the tasting I experienced, I have no doubt that every dish will have seafood lovers leaving entirely satisfied. Opened for lunch and dinner seven days a week, The Tackle Box offers a daily happy hour from 3:30 to 6:30 PM that includes $5 beer, $7 wine, $10 house cocktails, $1 clams, and $1.50 Conscience Point local oysters.The Tackle Box is located at 76 Jobs Lane in Southampton.

One hundred ISIS fighters surrender in Raqqa

first_imgRick Findler/Getty Images(RAQQA, Syria) — About 100 ISIS fighters have surrendered in Raqqa, Syria, in the last 24 hours and have been removed from the city, the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS told ABC News.The mass surrender is viewed as a sign that the coalition’s battle to retake Raqqa could be nearing its end, with 85 percent of the city now under the coalition’s control.“This is consistent with the trend we have seen in the past month, both in Syria and Iraq. A good number of ISIS fighters are giving up,” said Col. Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the anti-ISIS coalition.In addition, over the last week, about 1,500 civilians in the area have safely made it to locations controlled by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, Dillon said.An estimated 300 to 400 fighters remain in Raqqa.“We still expect difficult fighting in the days ahead and will not set a time for when we think ISIS will be completely defeated in Raqqa,” Dillon added.Separately, the Raqqa Civil Council and local Arab tribal elders have brokered a deal in which they are allowing a convoy of vehicles to leave Raqqa Saturday.In a press release Saturday morning, the coalition, which was not involved in the discussions that led to this deal, said people who are being allowed to leave Raqqa are subject to search and screening by Syrian Democratic Forces.The coalition also states in the release that the arrangement is “designed to minimize civilian casualties and purportedly excludes” foreign fighters.However, the coalition’s director of operations, Brig. Gen. Jonathan Braga, said the coalition is concerned about ISIS fighters fleeing the area.“We do not condone any arrangement that allows Daesh terrorists to escape Raqqah without facing justice, only to resurface somewhere else,” he said in the press release.

Women in Sport: The lady who set up SA’s golden era of road running

first_imgThough she shifted her allegiance in the latter stages of her lengthy top-flight career, for many years Colleen de Reuck played a key role in a golden era for South African women’s road running. After the country returned to the international stage in the early 1990s, De Reuck emerged as a beacon of the sport and her rivalry with compatriot Elana Meyer left indelible marks on the history books. Over a 14-year period between 1987 and 2001, De Reuck and Meyer ripped the national road running records to shreds, and between them they still hold the top 10 all-time SA…last_img read more

Three takeaways from Vegas Golden Knights’ 5-2 win over Anaheim Ducks

first_imgIn a Sunday Pacific Division showdown, the Anaheim Ducks paid a visit to the Vegas Golden Knights, and despite jumping out to an early 1-0 lead on a goal from Ryan Getzlaf, the Golden Knights scored five straight goals en route to a 5-2 victory.The win, which saw Vegas outshoot Anaheim 49-15, gave the Golden Knights took the second-place spot in the Pacific Division race between the two teams as they advanced to 8-5-0 with 16 points. The Ducks still remain in third with a 7-6-0 record, but are tied with the Calgary Flames and have the red-hot Arizona Coyotes just one point behind. A 2015 fourth-round pick, Roy has yet to prove himself as an NHL player, playing only seven games at the top level and spending the majority of his time in the AHL. However, Roy showed off his skill set and ability against the Ducks, and it paid off.The 22-year-old managed his first NHL goal on an outstanding play, where he sped the full length of the ice, and under pressure from two defenders with the puck bouncing, he stayed with the play and managed to fire the puck past Gibson for a memorable first tally — and memorable celebration, to boot.First NHL goal in his first game as a Vegas Knight for Nicolas Roy, whom the Hurricanes traded for Erik Haula. Canes drafted Roy 96th overall in 2015.Side note: Dave Goucher is such an awesome play-by-play guy.— Alex 🇭🇺🔴⚪️ (@FutureCanes) October 28, 2019In 9:45 of ice time, Roy was able to show off his speed, work ethic and physicality. The 6-4, 200-pound center threw five hits and also had three shots on goal, proving that he is still a promising NHL prospect — and someone who can play the role of a grinding, fourth-line player for Vegas. Let’s look at three takeaways from the Knights’ victory:1. Strange goal for Vegas shifts momentumAfter Ryan Getzlaf struck first for Anaheim to make it 1-0 about four minutes into the opening frame, things seemed to be going well for the Ducks.However, it didn’t take long for the Golden Knights to retaliate — and it wasn’t in the way one would expect.Just 34 seconds after the Ducks struck first, Mark Stone came flying into the zone and fired a shot on goal. John Gibson stopped the initial shot, but Cam Fowler accidentally put the puck in his own net, evening things up.sometimes, enemies become friends 🚨— Vegas Golden Knights (@GoldenKnights) October 28, 2019Stone’s strange goal — which gives him a point in eight of his last nine games — ignited a spark for the Knights, who followed up with two more goals before the end of the first period to take a 3-1 lead into the intermission. They’d strike twice more, once in the second and once in the third, to score five unanswered goals against Anaheim.2. Ducks need more scoring — and more shots on goalThere’s an old saying and valued lesson in the world of hockey: get pucks on net and good things will happen.That was the case in Sunday’s game. Anaheim found themselves in trouble from the start, being heavily outplayed by the Golden Knights, especially on the forecheck.By the end of the first period, the Ducks were outshot 17-5, and Vegas would put up back-to-back 16-shot periods to finish the game with a huge advantage in shots on goal, 49-15.NHL PREDICTIONS: Who will win the Pacific Division in 2019-20?Anaheim couldn’t keep up with the Knights’ offense, and given the Ducks didn’t get those scoring chances or opportunities that Vegas did, they struggled to retake the lead or get back into Sunday’s showdown. Instead, they managed just 10 more shots — six in the second and four in the third.Although Anaheim is still in a good position — and it’s still early — their current scoring rate isn’t substantial. The Ducks average just 2.5 goals per game, which is tied for the fifth-worst in the league. Over the course of their last five games (of which they’ve lost four), they’ve only been able to score over two goals in their lone win, a 5-2 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 26. In that five-game span, Anaheim has been outscored 17-10.In a star-studded Pacific Division that features the likes of Stone, Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl, Anze Kopitar and others, the Ducks will need to muster up more on the forecheck if they want to win hockey games and be a playoff team this year, let alone stay in the top-3 in the division.3. Nicolas Roy shows potential with first NHL goalAfter being recalled from the Chicago Wolves on Oct. 21, Roy finally got to suit up for the Golden Knights on Sunday — and took full advantage of the opportunity.last_img read more
