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.

Your son has not been the first person (some quite older) to topple a table in LLK. The bases are not as stable as I would like. The tops, by the way, are planks from 19th century barns.

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.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

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.
