Life on Long Island
The evening scene at Connolly’s Station in Malverne was a packed one on Thursday, March 14 as actor and celebrity Tony Danza came by to both tend bar and help the community’s youth.
Danza worked the taps at Connolly’s (280 Hempstead Ave., Malverne, 516-887-5160, connollystationli.com) to help raise funds for the sixth grade classes of the Howard T. Herber Middle School, as its yearly field...Read more »
In the creation of dance music, DJs and producers are the main forces behind the beat, which is what gets one and all on the dance floor. But when it comes to the part where we sing along, it’s almost always about the voice.
While there are many successful dance tracks that are virtually free from lyrical accompaniment, the biggest hits are often those that feature the efforts of a singer...Read more »
It won’t be hard to find a St. Patrick’s Day party on March 17, with virtually all of Nassau and Suffolk County bars, taverns and watering holes likely doing some sort of nod to this holiday that is considered by many to be a day best spent out wearing green, munching on corned beef and enjoying beverages (often of the “adult” ilk). However, the owners of the Nutty Irishman club-pubs have come up...Read more »
When it comes to taverns and bars, few happenings inspire special parties like St. Patrick’s Day.
Halloween events always do well, the evening before Thanksgiving is a draw and New Year’s Eve is always a big occasion – but the yearly arrival of March 17 is heralded by the hanging of paper green shamrocks in pub windows as early as mid-February, and the promise of enticing “SPD” (“St. Patrick’s...Read more »
Halloween parties may bring out big crowds, and New Year’s Eve is always a busy night -- but when it comes to pub parties, St. Patrick’s Day is peerless.
Although usually unrelated to the religious observances and cultural history of the Feast of Saint Patrick, every year March 17 proves to be a day people head out to behave festively, whether of Irish descent or otherwise.
“SPD” (“St....Read more »
Long Island has its share of bartenders for sure, many of whom are engaging and interesting people -- but it’s unlikely any of those local mixologists have also had their own talk show…or hit sitcom…or starred on Broadway…or appeared in a major motion picture…
Well, come the evening of March 14, anyone of legal drinking age will be able to order up a beverage from a gentleman who has...Read more »
If you have spent anytime surfing the Web or strolling through Facebook posts during the past few weeks, it is highly probable you have come across a “Harlem Shake” video … if not dozens.
For anyone who has yet to view one of these bits, a brief explanation of the phenomenon must begin with the music at its core. Produced by EDM artist “Baauer” (aka Harry Rodrigues), the “Harlem Shake” is...Read more »
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.
The first to deliver a dynamic session will be New Jersey-born Junior Sanchez, set to arrive on Thursday, Feb....Read more »
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.
The Nest is all about hip retro, from a tendency to have DJs play mostly old-school tracks, to its weekly Ladies Night (called “L80s Night” due to the house’s aforementioned musical preference) and its decor – which includes an Atari...Read more »
The Nest Bar & Lounge in East Meadow may have opened quietly last fall, but otherwise the word “quiet” doesn’t really apply to this hip hang on East Meadow Avenue.
Perhaps its location keeps it a bit off the major bar radar. While East Meadow Avenue is often locally busy, it’s not a road that the most Long Islanders may end up searching for nightlife. However, The Nest has some of the...Read more »
