The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.

Porto Vivo, the popular eatery in Huntington, starts "Ladies Night" on Thursdays with spring cocktails tonight.

The offerings: $6 glasses of wine and $6 specialty cocktails, plus complimentary bar appetizers and new dishes from the bar menu at half-price. Among the cocktails: a grapefruit-and-basil martini, a passion-fruit mojito, and a pineapple margarita, which should get you prepped for Cinco de Mayo.
