Life on Long Island
When looking to enter P’s & Q’s Auto Body in Huntington, keep in mind: it doesn’t have a front door.
Of course, it has an entrance -- yet instead of employing a typical doorway, P’s & Q’s has a doorman to guide guests beyond what at first seems to be the wall of an old auto repair garage, decorated with vintage oil cans, gas containers and a blackboard offering repair services for...Read more »
In 1989, director Tim Burton’s “Batman” hit the silver screen, and since that time such superheroes as Green Lantern, the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Blade, Iron Man, Hulk, Spiderman, Thor, Scott Pilgrim, Superman (not including the earlier Christopher Reeve movies), Ghost Rider and Spawn have also been brought to life on film, while Green Arrow of DC Comics and Marvel’s Agents of Shield currently have...Read more »
With the summer of 2014 already past its halfway mark, many Hamptons clubs have started organizing for Labor Day weekend.
On the other hand, two East End spots are actually getting Christmas parties ready this week -- so if your need for a fix of Yuletide cheer simply can't wait until December, you'll have a pair of chances to make merry in jingle-bell fashion before August even arrives as...Read more »
More Long Islanders turned up for the 2014 Great South Bay Music Festival this weekend than ever before in the event's 8-year history. Some 16,000 people attended the three-day concert event at Shorefront Park in Patchogue, and organizers attribute the increase in attendance -- of approximately 6,000 people -- to efforts to make the fest more family friendly as well as attracting bigger-name acts...Read more »
A quick Web search can easily reveal several recommendations on how to care for white clothing -- and those sort of tips may end up being especially handy for some local clubgoers as there are two back-to-back LI bashes this week asking all potential attendees to show up in their milkiest attire.
The origin of the “white party” is an inexact tale, with various cities, people and groups claiming...Read more »
Although it only first opened its doors last Thursday, The Arden in Port Jefferson is already making a serious nightlife splash.
A new bar, club and restaurant, it’s located in the second-story space previously belonging to the now-defunct Port Jazz — and its owners have done more than just take over the location, as heavy renovations have been made inside and out.
The Port Jazz scheme...Read more »
It’s no challenge to find lengthy DJ-driven bashes regularly going down around LI’s nightlife circuit -- but even the longest of get-togethers tend to wrap after six or seven hours -- unlike the Pines Party, an annual soiree that lasts almost two full days.
Returning to Fire Island Pines for its 2014 edition, the Pines Party is actually a fundraiser at its core, with net proceeds to benefit...Read more »
He has starred in several films and portrayed some truly intimidating characters, but on Saturday actor -- and LI native -- Robert Davi will be demonstrating a different side of his skill set as he brings a bit of "Ol’ Blue Eyes" to East Meadow.
Raised in Huntington and educated at Seton Hall High School in Patchogue, Davi has had some memorable movie roles playing heavies -- such as bad guy...Read more »
If you had attended one or more of the "Sound Waves" parties in 2013 and were hoping for its return, get ready -- the poolside, celebrity DJ-driven bash will kick off its 2014 season on Saturday, July 19 – but this time it’s trading its former lido for a slightly larger body of water, namely the Atlantic Ocean.
Last year, the Waves soirees took place in the courtyard of the Montauk Beach House...Read more »
Hip-hop fans take note: Busta Rhymes will be performing in the Hamptons on Saturday – and for LI-native rap enthusiasts, this information may be extra tantalizing as Busta is not just a celebrated MC, actor and personality, but a Long Islander as well.
Although born in Brooklyn, Mr. Rhymes (AKA Trevor Smith Jr.) grew up in Uniondale -- and it was from there he first launched his career as...Read more »
