A couple of quick add ons...

For a Good Cause...
On Saturday, July 26 from 10AM to 4PM, the Suffolk Independent Living Organization (SILO) will be celebrating the 18th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act with a BBQ and fair, with vendors, art exhibits, music and more. This is a grassroots organization devoted to helping people with disabilities live independently. Come on down and show your support! Cost: FREE (Thanks, Kieran, for the heads up!)
Gone Fishin'!
The Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery is just a really neat little place! With cold and warm water ponds, a tidal raceway, observation deck, freshwater aquariums, and Tiny (a 78 lb. snapping turtle), this is a great Cheap Date for the entire family. Admission: $5 per person
A Little Nostalgia...
Back in the day, Long Island was populated with farmers and fishermen. There were no grocery stores back then...you had to go to the general store to get your provisions. Come visit Long Island's last operating general store, the St. James General Store. Spend some time with sales staff in period dress, maybe get a book autographed...there's always something to do and see without spending a lot of coin!
While in St. James, bring your voice, your instrument, your ears to Cool Beanz! Wednesday and Saturday are Open Mic Nite at the original home of Acoustic Long Island.
If you have an event you'd like to let me know about, email me at cheap.date.long.island@gmail.com.
'Til next time!
