Blue Point Brewery Poised To Tap World’s Largest Cask

Blue Point Brewery, one of Long Island’s better known and most popular microbrewers is set to tap the world’s largest cask as it hosts the 7th Annual Blue Point Cask Ale Festival on Saturday, April 9th, 2011 from 2pm – 6pm at their headquarters in Patchogue.

My Gym in West Babylon

By Dina Shingleton, Suffolk County Correspondent

Looking for a great place to throw your toddler’s birthday party?  Look no further than My Gym in West Babylon.  This past Saturday my daughter celebrated her 2nd birthday with 15 of her closest friends ranging in age from 1 to 6.  The hour and a half party includes having the entire facility available exclusively to your party with staff.  Tablecloths, napkins, balloons, forks, plates, invites, and thank you cards are also included with the price.  The only thing we had to bring the day of the party was cupcakes, juice boxes, and pizza (and to make the party SUPER easy, there is a pizza place right next door.) 

The facility was super clean (they should open a cleaning service) and the staff was super friendly.  The party was tightly run with just the right amount of activities, songs, circle time, and free play.  I was amazed that the staff got 15 kids to sit around a table and eat pizza and cupcakes without incident!  But the best part of the party?  Going home with a happy two-year old and not having to clean up after 15 kids!

My Gym also offers classes based on age.  After my experience with the birthday party, I am definitely looking into enrolling my daughter because I know she’d love it! 631-669-4043
