A proud Pittsburgh, PA native, Lenn moved to Long Island nearly a decade ago and promptly fell in love with the region's dynamic and emerging wine industry. An Internet marketing guru by profession, he founded LENNDEVOURS.com, his wine blog, in early 2004 to share his passion for the wines of New York with his readers. It has since grown into the premier source for New York wine commentary, tasting notes and news.
Formerly the editor of the Long Island Wine Gazette and contributor to Edible Brooklyn, he serves as the wine columnist for Edible East End, Hamptons.com and Dan's Papers in the Hamptons. He is also a regional editor for Appellation America covering the Long Island and Hudson River Valley regions. He lives in Sound Beach, NY with his wife Nena, son Jackson and trusty beagle, Ben Roethlisbeagle.

We don't currently have a liquor license. So any wine would have to covered under a winery's off premises license. But, I am certainly interested in hosting a private, wine tasting dinner. This may become more difficult as we head into the spring and summer.
Thank you for the nice review you gave to my restaurant, Love Lane Kitchen. I am sorry that not everything was up to par. We strive for perfection but may fall short sometimes. I hope that you will give us an opportunity to redeem ourselves.
I see we have a lot in common.I would like to meet you when we get a chance.I don't know if you are interested but I want to either join or start a tasting group.It appears you work in Bridgehampton.I drive by there almost every day.Drop me a line and let me know what you want to do.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it.

In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
