When you think about Nick & Toni's, the Hamptons' celebrity canteen, the association usually is fine Italianate food and wine.
But on May 13, the restaurant hosts a beer-and-cheese tasting. No, this isn't a tribute to Bud Light and Velveeta. The cheese selection comes from Lucy's Whey in East Hampton, and the brews from McNeill's Brewery in Vermont, known for its ales; Leelanau from Michigan; and the local Fire Island Brewing Co.
The tasting goes from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Cost: $25. Nick & Toni's also will take 15 percent off your meal tab if you stay for dinner.
Nick & Toni's is at 136 N. Main St., East Hampton; 631-324-3550.
