Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships, and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife Kathryn were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years.
Today, Arthur Murray's team, in its 100th year of teaching, prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend jaunts in a fun setting that promotes learning, fun, self-confidence, and physical activity. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired with an instructor, who will assess their current skill level and make recommendations on the most appropriate program. Throughout programs, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a menu of 29 styles, including Latin and country western, helping students learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
Established in 1997, the vines at Jason's Vineyard are now a fully mature 17 years of age, producing a wide variety of wines that includes two chardonnays, two merlots, sauvignon blanc, and many others. Their perfected roster of wines also includes a Golden Fleece blend, a clean, fruity wine whose grapes are guarded by dragons. Each wine can be sampled at the winery, built in 2009, where visitors may also purchase bottles, snack on cheeses, or enjoy time at a main bar shaped like a Greek trireme.
Southampton's cup currently runneth over with awards, so grab a menu and cleverly place your mouth beneath its cornucopic outflux. Start lunch, dinner, or High Beer with an appetizing cup of New England clam chowder or potato ale soup with bacon and cheddar ($5 each), before hitting the pub favorites. Wrap your lips around a tall, frosty mug full of the brewer's burger and french fries ($9, add cheese, sautéed onions, bacon, or mushrooms for $0.75 each) or a crispy order of lager-dipped fish and chips ($14 lunch, $18 for a dinner portion). For a hearty pub dinner, pair a flounder stuffed with crabmeat ($22) and side of sweet potato fries ($6), crushing your appetite beneath the sheer weight of flavor. Check the on tap menu for a saliva-stimulating selection of micro-brewed beers, ales, and Olympian ambrosias, or ask your server to recommend the best pairing for your entree, your complexion, or the beer you just had 12 seconds ago.
