For most, Monday is the “day back” – back to school, back to work, back to business so there are not usually a lot of parties set for Monday nights, with most nightclubs, bars and lounges aware that on the whole a lot of people just don’t feel like dancing at the start of a new workweek.

Long Island is no stranger to sports bars and restaurants that evoke female anatomy with paronomastic names, such as Hooters and Canz A-Citi Roadhouse outlets which do steady business throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties.

If you or someone you know is involved in Fantasy Football, one thing is for certain: it is serious business.

It's no secret that Montauk is considered one of the nation’s top spots for surfing – but while catching a wave here is easy to achieve, catching a movie can be a bit trickier – for there is only one theater in town, and it shows one movie at a time.
Currently The Montauk Movie house (3 Edgemere Rd., 631-668-2393, adorned with a sign that says “The Movie”) is playing “The Amazing Spiderman,”...Read more »
Almost everyone who has ever gone out to a lounge, club or bar knows that – except in the case of a jukebox – hearing songs you and your friends want can be a fruitless desire.
