Kismet Party Pix
July 4th Weekend
Photos by Dennis
Potluck Dinner was held on Sunday July 3rd and even though there was threat of
rain and storms, the party went on well into the evening on the beach at Seabay
Hosted by Jane and Gregg Weisser from Swept Away, the party
got started at 6:30 and went on as long as people kept bringing the food down.
The price of admission, a prepared dish of your choice, saw many hits on into
the evening. Jane rocked the desert table with her stellar Lemon Merange pies, Lou Romanzi brought an amazing Lobster Linguini. Jon
Williamsq Fair Dinkum brought a beef chimichuri dish and Carmine (the mayor)
Padovano brought a 4 liter bottle of the '83
red wine. Gregg carved a ham and the
Welt girls brought some scrumptious brownies. Chef John made a Salmon
wrapped in bacon dish and the dishes kept on coming.
The fun about getting the invite to the party is that over
time, many people and dishes appear and disappear. This was the largest and
best of the 8 seasons we have been putting this on said a guest who had been to
every one of the Seabay dinners. Gregg suggested that the weather was a
positive factor as it challenged people's commitment to show-up and bring their
best food. People want to show off their skills in the kitchen and show it to
the Seabay community.

Kismet July 4th Parade pix by Jeannie
The 47th annual Kismet 4th of July parade was dedicated to the late founder Jean Wood. The parade went off without a hitch except for the gloomy weather. That didn't keep Kismetics, young & old from enjoying the
Bay Shore and East Islip Fire Department Marching Bands and scoffing down food
and drinks till they were sold out – but not as quickly as the new tie-dyed KFD
T-shorts which were sold out in under an hour Friday of the Juky 4 weekend!.
The Artie Shiller award for most patriotic went to the "Betsy Ross" float starring little GiGi Villachi. The most historic award went to the Surfing
float! The most topical prize went to the "weinergate" float and most creative went to the Pirate float by the Herrman gang. The First prize went to the Lambie family with the Alfred Hitchcock birds float.
A big thankyou to judges, Phyllis Shiller, Patty Lyons, and
Joanne Padavano. Another great thanks to Phil Villachi for donating the large
supply of kids watches. The Surfs Out, Kismet Inn,
Kismet Market, and Miss Alice's all donated gift certificates to the
Grace sang the National Anthem.
It was, as always, stirring.
