With the departure of Westbury’s mega-venue GLO last year, Aura Light and Sound Suite in East Meadow has become the top spot for the nation’s biggest DJs to work when bringing beats to Long Island – and this week sees two of the club world’s major talents over a three-day stretch.

There’s no question The Nest Bar & Lounge in East Meadow has a proclivity for the past, but this evening’s party will flip the calendar back several decades.

Ask anyone who regularly spends many a late night out and about around Long Island in the wintertime and they are likely to agree: there have been some brutally cold evenings so far in 2013.
Of course, winters on LI are usually chilly times, especially after the sun has gone down -- but over in Rockville Centre there’s a party happening this weekend that is inspired by warmer months on the...Read more »
With Presidents Day 2013 landing this Monday (Feb. 18), some of the Island’s livelier nightspots will be treating this Sunday (Feb. 17) like a “Saturday” — so if you are looking to take advantage of the three-day weekend in energetic fashion, here is a trio of spirited Sunday-scheduled soiree selections:
“Mr. Beery’s Annual Band Battle to end Cystic Fibrosis”
