The dish on Long Island's restaurant and food scene.
Gentlemen, if you are having trouble getting motivated to do your holiday shopping, Tres Palms may be able to help.
The Babylon restaurant has convceived a stag event that is relatively short on actual shopping, looooong on eating, drinking and football.
Heres the schedule:
11 a.m. to noon: Fortify yourself with brunch (entrees range from $9 to $16) and a complimentary Bloody Mary or mimosa.
Noon to 1 p.m.: With the support of your brethren, stroll into Babylon village and buy gifts.
1 to 5 p.m.: Watch the Giants play the Seattle Seahawks and snack on a raw bar, pulled-pork sliders, lobster nachos, baby lamb chops, wings and Buffalo chili. Fire Island Beer will be offering $3 pours of, among other brews, Red Wagon IPA and Frozen Tail Ale, and there will be specials on Bloodys, Margaritas and rum punch.
4 to 8 p.m.: Watch the Jets play the Carolina Panthers (while you continue eating and drinking). Feel free to bring a cigar.
8 p.m.: Go home with your parcels and tell the family youve been shopping all day.
