Louis & Marxx Steakhouse and Wine Bar Opens on Shore Road
Port Washington now has its own steakhouse, but with a difference. Although Louis & Marxx, which opened in January at 37 Shore Road (Diwan and then Tease in previous incarnations), bills itself as a steakhouse, the menu has a wide variety of other offerings. Tim Sweeney, the restaurant's manager, said, "We want to appeal to everyone. We are the kind of place where dad can have a steak; mom can have chicken salad; their son can have a hamburger and everyone goes home happy."

On The Bay
Sunday, March 13 was a great day to be outdoors; the sun was shining, the air was brisk with a slight hint of spring, and there was just enough wind to remind us that we still need to wear a hat to keep warm. Weather conditions were perfect for the eight teams gathered at the starting line for a day of good, competitive racing. And competitive it was. There was a tie for first place between Ralf Steitz/Jaime Gross and Ted Toombs/Matt Cornachio, with Ralf winning the tiebreaker with 4 aces to Ted's three. There was another tie for 6th and 7th race, too. The racing was so competitive that the Race Committee had one general recall when so many boats were over at the start that they was no way the over-early boats could be identified, and in another race three boats were over early. Race Committee ran seven races and one crew race in rapid succession, there were no capsizes, though at one point it looked like two teams might go swimming, but they managed to get control of their boats and sail off to the leeward mark. One of our regulars, Pedro Lorson, was over at Larchmont YC for the Stanley Bell Regatta, but will be back next week to give the rest of the fleet a run for their money. The fleet welcomed two new teams from SUNY Maritime, Reggie Rainard, from Wheaton, MD (near Silver Spring), Justin Rose from West Islip, Dan Golde and Matt Holland, from Cutchogue. They came over with their sailing coach, Al Rohr, who has been an "institution" at Maritime for over 30 years. He could easily be called a father figure or mentor to the many sailors that Maritime has produced over the years. Top boats for the day: 1. #537, Ralf Steitz/Jaime Gross, 2. # 514, Ted Toombs/Matt Cornachio, and 3. "Fee" Mitropoulos/Amelia Amon. Race Committee for this week included: Herb Schmidt, Winter Frostbite RC Chair, Don Canfield, Bill Brakman, Dick Field, Vince Syracuse and Andrea Watson on Kraus' Kastle, and two rescue boats with Ed du Moulin, Ralph Heinzerling and Arthur Donovan on one, and Jeff Shane and Dan Simon on the other. A special guest to Race Committee came all the way to Manhasset Bay from Carson City, Nevada. And while we frostbiters would like to think Skip Canfield came all this way just to help out the RC with scoring, he actually came to celebrate his father's birthday next week. While this isn't a significant birthday marking another decade, Don Canfield did mention that he and his son are "both turning 39." A very interesting comment, considering that Skip is 41, and Don is, well, young at heart! We look forward to having Skip back anytime, he was a great scorer and added greatly to the festivities on Kraus' Kastle.
It has become tradition for the girls basketball team that at the last practice of the season, the girls trade in their practice jerseys for costumes. "We've been doing this for about seven years now," said Coach Liz Hutchinson. "I think the whole thing got started when we had a big game coming up and we were the underdogs." The girls said, "If we win, we're dressing up for practice and the captains become coach for the day." Coach Hutch agreed and the rest is history. Another piece is that the girls get to pick the costume for the coach. This year the girls dressed Coach Hutch as Minnie Mouse. Captains Erin Betsch, Michelle Doscas and Emlyn Diakow led the practice. "I think they worked the girls harder than I do," said Coach Hutch. "It's the perfect, most fun and constructive way to end a terrific season."
