NORTHPORT - Even though Tropical Andrea is messing up our good times this week (shaking fist — I'm giving you the shank eye, Andrea!), that doesn't mean we have to stop enjoying summer. Point Lookout is hosting their fun 'Cockails On The Deck' Summer Series on June 7 from 4 to 7 p.m. If you've never been to Point Lookout, you're in for a major treat. Driving up the winding mountain is beautiful enough, but let's put it this way, brides pay big money to be able to sip cocktails at the top of their mountain. So if Point Lookout is offering a public reception, you go!

For about $7 to $10 you can sit at the summit deck overlooking the islands, and just for a moment pretend you own a mega yacht, canoodle with the Brange in Cannes and retire every night in your own custom mink-lined hyperbaric sleep chamber.

For cocktails, order whatever you like. Pictured is the classic Dark and Stormy. They will be offering a selection of 'Small Plates' gourmet grilled little pizzas, which are $9 each. For example, the  "Say Cheese" pizza features hearty tomato sauce buried under mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, cheddar and Bel Paese (a semi-soft Italian cheese).

If it's raining, the indoor bar area of the Lincolnville Lounge and the Belfast Room will be open.

Reservations are encouraged by calling 207-789-2000. And do check out the rest of their upcoming Summer Series, dahhlinhk.
