Board members and supporters attended the 2nd Anniversary of the North Shore Historical Museum on January 31, 2015.
 
The year 2007 celebrated the centennial of their home, the Justices Court Building in Glen Cove. Sterling Glen of Glen Cove has donated this historic building to the North Shore Historical Museum and the exterior renovation of the building has begun. The Courthouse, built in 1907, is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places and is the ideal permanent home for the North Shore Historical Museum. Their plans are to fully restore this building, which has been vacant for over 10 years, and to preserve a piece of North Shore history for the future.
 
With a well-deserved thank you to NSHM President Brian Mercadante for 15 years of leadership, the Museum welcomed members, friends, supporters and dignitaries to celebrate two years since their opening in January 2013. Board Member Victoria Crosby composed and recited a poem in honor of the Brian's service.
 
In 1997 Brian Mercadante had an epiphany,
a brilliant idea, a concept most thrilling.
So he went to the Mayor to ask if he was willing to allow him to create a museum in the crumbling old courthouse which was an eye sore, and nobody used it anymore. Brian was VP of the BID at the time, and he thought that to demolish the historic courthouse would be a crime.  The building had been neglected and was in a terrible state, but with Brian’s vision, it was not too late to preserve and restore to its original glory, yet how to raise the money was another story.
 
With members of the BID a board was created.
From New York State a charter was obtained,
now all that remained was the grant writing and fund raising.
 
How it was accomplished is really quite amazing.  With an evolving board and many fundraising events under Brian’s leadership there were many accomplishments.
 
Now after all these years of hard work the museum finally opened two years ago, and so board members congratulate him for all his years of dedication.
 
President - Georgie Connett is now the new President of the North Shore Historical Museum.  Georgie started  on February 1, 2014.

The NY HORROR SHOW is an event brought to you by the creators of the Macabre Faire Film Festival and All Things TwitchTwitch Productions as well as the creators of Eternal Con.

The event began in on Friday night with red carpet arrivals at 7pm for the Macabre Faire Film Festival awards dinner in the Vanderbilt Ballroom, which included a buffet, a special memorial for 2 people that were part of previous festivals along with a few mentions of others that have passed on from the film world for 2014, followed by a special screening of the short film "The Secret" directed by Andrew Leckonby and a live episode of the "Even Later With Rizzo" comedy show (a parody with undead characters to the Johnny Carson Show). There was also a performance by music composer Robert Frankenberg called "Symphony of Oblivion" and a DJ spinning until midnight.
 
On Saturday January 17th, the event begans at 10am with all sorts of vendors in the Main Ball Room and this room is open from 10am until 8pm. There were 4 separate conference rooms which was converted into screening rooms from 10am until midnight in each. These rooms were the: Diplomat, Amphitheater, Brookhaven, & Huntington. There were 2 separate panel rooms which were the: Regency & Hampton. Considering the Regency is larger than the Hampton the bulk of the panels took place in that room with smaller panels in the Hampton room along with some games through out the day.
 
On Sunday January 18th, the event began at 10am and runs until 5pm at which time the vendor floor closed and all screening rooms were closed as well. There was an award ceremony from 5pm to 6pm for the filmmakers that were chosen for the Macabre Faire Film Festival Winter 2015.

The play features 7 new songs as well as many of Eddie’s hits. Through his original songs and classic hits, Eddie portrays excitement, fear and finally freedom. Songs like “Baby Hold On,” “Take Me Home Tonight” and “Shakin” catapult you back to the wild resolution of an era gone by while at the same time you root for Eddie to succeed in a business that changes as quickly as the seasons. The play also boasts an exciting array of Broadway dancers that move the story that enhance the story.

The play features Eddie narrating throughout the story and showcases Eddie’s longtime touring band which includes: guitarist, Benito Dibartoli; bassist Lee Beverly; drummer Glenn Symmonds; and on Keyboards, Chris Grove (formerly of Survivor).

Two Tickets To Paradise- The Musical, traces Eddie’s life from his years as a police officer to hitting the big time! The 7 new songs highlighted throughout the show include: “These Are My Guys,” “Out To California,” “I Only Want The World For You,” “California Here I Come,” “No More Goodbyes,” “This Train Don’t Stop Here Anymore” and  “Girls Get Up.”

Eddie’s signature raspy husky voice brings the story to life; enhancing the characters while showcasing the softer side of Eddie Money as well as his classic hits. Jump back in time with The Money Man and you too can live the dream and regain the naivety we all emitted we were young… when we thought anything was possible!!!

the show will be running from January 16th through the 25th.

What do most budget-conscious people do on a weekday night?  They probably go to the latest movie flick, have some  drinks or have a nice dinner out or they stay at home and entertain themselves.  Now there’s a new choice that is guaranteed to be fun, entertaining, and can involve one person, a couple, or a group of friends and do it all for the less than the price of a  movie ticket. 
 
Game On Trivia Night is now weekly game show at one of your favorite restaurants or venue with a live audience.  Until now the interactive Game On had been on Facebook only.  HostMike Hope would ask a weekly trivia question and Facebook fans would text in their responses for prizes.  With over a thousand people responding a week, Mike Hope decided to take Game On before a live audience.
 
When you consider the long-term popularity of Jeopardy, The Price Is Right and Family Feud, it’s clear that people love watching game shows and they want to be on a game show.  But getting on national television is no easy feat.  The travel, the auditions, the competitions—this is a dream that’s unlikely to materialize for all those people who yell out the answers to the $Million dollar question in front of the television.  But Game On  Trivia Night can fulfill that desire to participate in a game show, win prizes, and ultimately have a great evening out for the same price as going out to a movie.
 
Here is how the Game On Trivia Night is played:  An exciting atmosphere with friendly competition fueled by fun general knowledge questions that will test your teams wits and fast recollection of TV and movie clues,  music,  literature, pop culture, sports,  and more.  Participants play in teams of one to six people. Surprise theme rounds are included based on current events,  holidays,  major sporting events,  and more!  All Game Play is shown on screens throughout the entertainment venue adding a visual dimension for more fun!
 
The Fast Five tiebreaker showdown is alway highlight.  This can range from answering a different trivia question to a physical task. 
 
This promises to be a fun and exciting evening and something totally different from anything else you’d find at a bar scene.  What’s more is that each Game On  Trivia Night will be a unique ‘Game show experience’ that will be remembered and can be shared with friends and family alike.

Long Islanders rang in the New Year in Gold Coast Style at the Crescent Beach Club in Bayville, New York.

Guests enjoyed a wonderful performance by the Disco Unlimited that added to the fabulous New years Eve Gala. Disco Unlimited performs classic dance hits with a modern twist.
The Crescent Beach Club is famous for its  romantic views of the beach and water of the Long Island sound.  Patrons dined on a lavish 5 star buffet including seafood, sushi, & top meat stations as well as tasting delicious cocktails overflowing with premium top ahelf liquor all evening long.
 
 
The event was hosted by Celebrity Radio Host Stephanie Ovadia from the Stephanie O Radio Show.  I had the pleasure of sitting down with Stepanie Ovadia and talking about her radio show, her law practice and her eight children, who she admits is her greatest accomplishment.

Aunt Barbara North America's top Tupperware saleswoman hosted a very special Holiday Tupperware Party in the Hamptons on December 13, 2014

When not in Drag his family and friends know him as Robert Suchan a Long Island Resident that has made a fabulous living selling Tupperware.  "Aunt Barbara," is classified as a sassy lady who offers punchlines along with the usual plastic containers, cheese graters and spatulas.

Her Drag Act is so entertaining while she sells Tupperware that Aunt Barbara walks away with over $200,000 a year because guests just love the whole act.
 
The concept of making a living from showbiz and selling Tupperware came to Suchan in 1995, when he went to a Tupperware Party at his sister's home.
 
“Tupperware kind of had a reputation that people really didn’t want to go to the parties,” Suchan said, according to WCBS-TV. “They thought they were boring; they were going to be conjured into buying things, and I thought, you know, if she just turned it into a little bit of a show, and she had another reason for people to come, the Tupperware would just sell itself.”

Long Island is about to turn up the heat! Tocolo Cantina just opened its doors on December 3, 2014.  This restaurant boast an authentic Mexican cuisine with an innovative twist.  This trendy eatery is located in the Gallery at Westbury Plaza (920 Old Country Rd, Garden City).

Renowned Chef Alexis Samayoa, a Brooklyn native with a stellar career, is the executive chef and under his direction Tocolo Cantina will serve refined, modern Mexican and Oaxacan cuisine in a casual and fun atmosphere with a strong emphasis on service.
 
The 98-seat restaurant merges elements of a modern California eatery with those of a Mexican Cantina.  The restaurant's decor is complete with copper walls, encaustic tile, and a hydraulic garage door.  The restaurant is anchored by a lively bar in the center of the room.
 
Chef Alexis Samayoa’s menu is influenced by his upbringing and a career that spans over a decade through renowned kitchens like El Vez, La Esquina (with Chef Akhtar Nawab), Txikito (with Chef Alex Raij), WD-50 (with Chef Wiley Dufresne) and Empellon. His approach at Tocolo Cantina reflects a deep love of food – smells, textures, seasonings and freshness, as well as a devoted skill set most inspired by Empellon’s Chef Alex Stupak and his creativity.
 
Chef Alex Samayoa incorporates both traditional Mexican fare and his own modern interpretations of customary Mexican dishes into the menu.
 
The Guacamole Classico (diced onion, jalapenos, cilantro), Snapper Ceviche (with salsa verde) and Lamb Barbacoa Taco balance traditional ingredients with perfection. Samayoa’s talent working with traditional Mexican techniques and flavors is perhaps most apparent in the Pollo Asado (with mole mancha mantele) large plate.

In contrast, the Guacamole Yucateco (mango, habanero chile, red onion, red bell pepper), Shrimp Ceviche (with Salsa Xni Pec) and Chicken Taco burst with flavor and capture Alexis’s creative talent and modern skills.

The menu’s mix of petite and large plates, as well as its two large communal dining tables, hopes to inspire long celebrations over food.
Since no great cantina is complete without a lively bar and lofty cocktail program, Tocolo Cantina promises to deliver the best margaritas and sangrias around. The cocktail menu will offer a large selection of specialty drinks, as well as traditional Mexican tequilas, mezcals and beers. Signature cocktails include the “Grilled Lime Margarita”, made with Lunazul Silver tequila, muddled grilled limes, agave and Grand Marnier in a mezcal rinsed glass and the “Autumn Margarita”, featuring Herradura Reposado, cranberry jam, pomegranate, fresh lime in an allspice rimmed glass.
 

The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily.

Star of Stage and Screen Mario Cantone poses for a photo-op in the Green Roon at the Space at Westbury on Saturday November 22, 2014
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Space was established as the Westbury Movie Theater on November 10, 1927. The theater opened its doors to an audience that marveled at the beauty of its Tudor style inspired auditorium. The film feature was "Hula" starring Clara Bow on opening night. On the stage, The University of Maryland Collegian's Band thrilled the audience with a spectacular performance. On Friday, November 11, 1927 to celebrate Armistice Day, "Beau Geste" starring Ronald Coleman was screened.
 
 
The Westbury Theatre was one of six theaters built by Salvatore Calderone in Nassau County, Long Island.
 
 
 
The theater flourished as a single screen house until it was twinned in the late 1970's. As patronage decreased, the theater soon closed its doors.
 
Eight years ago Cyrus Hakakian and his partners saved the Westbury Theater from demolition. After viewing the magnificent space, he was determined to preserve the grandeur of the original theater while re-purposing the facility to accommodate all aspects of contemporary entertainment. With the installation of state of the art lighting and sound systems combined with flexible seating plans, the Westbury Theater now enters a new chapter of its illustrious history as The Space at Westbury.  
 
 
The magic begins the moment the audience sees the spectacular LED marquee gracing the outstanding new facade. A graceful tower provides downtown Westbury with an architectural landmark as theatrical glamour returns to Post Avenue. The excitement extends to the theater's south side on Winthrop Street with a new double story valet grand entrance. As the audience enters the portal with its soaring ceilings while immersed in the glow of magical lighting it is apparent that every detail has been considered to make a visit to The Space at Westbury a most memorable experience.  
 
 
Each week there are three new performances by talented recording artists, music groups and A-listers. 
 
 
This past week Star of Stage and Screen Mario Cantone performed his One Man Show, Mario Cantone's Swings Both Ways. I had chance to chat with Mario about his passion for performing and his childhood dreams of acting on the stage.Mario Cantone, the celebrated New York stage actor and stand-up comedian gained critical acclaim with his Tony-nominated one-man show Laugh Whore, from its appearance at the Cort Theatre on Broadway to the Showtime special. The previous theatre season saw Cantone starring in the Tony-winning Assassins by Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman. Both of hit shows were directed by four-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello.  
 
 
An accomplished stage actor, Cantone has appeared on Broadway in the role of "Buzz" in Terrence McNally's award-winning dramatic comedy, Love! Valor! Compassion! and "Stephano" in Shakespeare's The Tempest at the Public Theater.He starred in the June release of Sony's animated film, Surf's Up, and appeared in the hilarious film The Aristocrats. On television, Cantone can currently be seen as Anthony, Charlotte's wedding-planner-with-attitude, now that HBO’s Sex and the City is in syndication on TBS, E and many other stations. As well as the Sex and the City movie franchise. On Comedy Central, Cantone's performances have been featured on The USO Comedy Tour, Chappelle's Show, and various other network specials. Cantone has performed his irreverent stand-up comedy at a wide range of venues, including Carnegie Hall, where he warmed up jazz great Shirley Bassey, to performances at Atlantic City’s Borgata and Atlantic Club, Headlining at Gotham Comedy and Caroline's on Broadway. Over the years his routines have included musical parodies of Judy Garland, Jim Morrison, Peggy Lee, Bruce Springsteen and Liza Minnelli. 
 
 
 
Cantone got his start hosting the local New York children's show Steampipe Alley, where the comic slipped in sly pop culture innuendo that adults could enjoy. His other television credits include appearances on Late Night with David Letterman, Jimmy Fallon, Oprah, Martha, The Today Show, and through out it’s 15 year run, multiple appearances on ABC’s The View.
