Life on Long Island
Making trips into Manhattan and Brooklyn to enjoy the city’s cutting edge nightlife has always been a regular move by Long Islanders – as while there’s plenty to do in Nassau and Suffolk, NYC remains one of the world’s main destinations for both fabulous and offbeat parties. However, once the summer rolls around, a healthy portion of the New York City DJs, hosts, performers, staffers and other club...Read more »
It may seem hard to believe, but the summer of 2013 is already nearing the halfway point — and if you've yet to take in a Hamptons bash, one of the season’s most anticipated annual affairs is set to return for another round on Friday, June 5 in Montauk.
It’s called “Shark Attack Sounds” (SAS) and this summer’s edition will be its 11th.
Reportedly, it began as a simple Ditch Plains beach...Read more »
It’s getting to the point where country music events on Long Island are expected happenings, rather than a part of a new trend in nightlife (as it was a few years ago, when there were virtually none). However, the latest affair to arrive on the scene is definitely a bit different, as it takes place outdoors and by the water.
Freeport’s Nautical Mile has a long-standing tradition of big crowds,...Read more »
With July Fourth falling on a Thursday this year, some night spots are treating the day before like a Friday.
For anyone hanging out in the Hamptons during this upcoming extended holiday weekend, Georgica Restaurant and Lounge in Wainscott has an event set for Wednesday that is both bash and benefit.
Kicking off at 8 p.m., Georgica will be hosting a fundraiser for The Voss Foundation,...Read more »
When classifying a place like the Cedar Beach Bar & Grill (CBBG) in Mount Sinai, some might use the term “hidden gem,” while others might even call it an “oasis.”
In this case, both terms do definitely apply.
The Long Island Sound is nothing like the South Shore when it comes to waterside nightlife or summer fun -- as while there are numerous clubs, bars and eateries found along...Read more »
It seems almost impossible to imagine that only five years ago, there were virtually no country music events happening anywhere on Long Island (except at the now-defunct Matty T’s in Commack, which was at one time the only venue that featured line-dancing on LI); in 2013 there are several parties a week in Nassau and Suffolk counties that revolve around the honky-tonk sound.
Most of these...Read more »
As the summer rolls on out in Montauk, a “hot” party to consider involves cooling down with some tequila-spiked beverages.
Montauk Downs State Park is recognized by many for its golf course, its swimming pools and other activities, but the Lessing’s Group – responsible for such spots as Library Cafe in Farmingdale (274 Main St., 516-752-7678), Post Office Cafe in Babylon (130 W. Main St.,...Read more »
Once the summer gets under way, the Hamptons becomes one of the most DJ-friendly places in the country. Successful mixers from NYC – and from around the world – come to the East End to spin. On June 22, a man whose talents have allowed him to expand past nightlife and become an international star will be working in the DJ booth at Neptune Beach Club: Paul Oakenfold.
Few DJs can match Oakenfold’s...Read more »
As many of LI’s devotees of underground clubs and music will tell you, the Broadway Bar in Amityville is an important stop . . . or was.
Since it arrived in 2010, the venue has hosted some unique events. New wave parties, punk rock shows, metal concerts, hip-hop battles and EDM bashes are only some of what had transpired within the walls over at 198 Route 110 — but despite its frequent use,...Read more »
The item is called a “red Solo cup,” something virtually all of us have used at some point.
Produced by the Solo Cup Company, these bright red plastic cups are frequently used at picnics and parties and in games that involve adult beverages (especially beer pong).
The Nutty Irishman of Bay Shore is adding yet another occasion that will require a purposeful deployment of the crimson drink-ware:...Read more »
