I see this getting nipped in the bud!

"House Rules"

A timeless axiom of playing cards for money is...

Know the house rules before
sitting down at the table.

Someone involved with the project at 70 Sunset Avenue never bother­ed to check with the Village Building Department:

* Bench signage

Someone... are you running with us, Adcorp?... needs to brush up on §123-7 of the Municipal Code.

This is more of an inauspicious start for Best Market in Westhampton Beach.

If I remember from my college dorm days, that was covered in the first chapter of "Poker According to Maverick."

I think you're right. My preferences, however, ran to Nelson Algren's admonitions:
  1. Never play cards with a man called "Doc."
  2. Never eat at a place called "Mom's."
  3. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.

I saw another one of these signs just inside the Eastport King Kullen entrance tonight.

Sure, but Eastport hasn't adopted Westhampton Beach's sign code, #1, and, #2, it's not even in the same Township.

Ummm... not to nit pick, but Eastport is the western most hamlet in Southampton Town. There. I feel better. Be gentle, Dean.

Now Bruce, if there's a nit-to-be-picked, I have every confidence that you or Coach K will be the ones to step up.

In point of fact, the Brookhaven-Southampton Town line has been crossed once you reach the American Legion Hall on the inland side of Montauk Highway.

Go now and sin no more.
