Dear Long Islander,
Long Island got an unexpected surprise to start the workweek as a several inches of snow piled up Monday morning. What was hopefully the last snowfall before next winter melted away quickly as temperatures rose later in the day, but not before making a muck of the morning commute. With winter behind us it is now time to look forward to the warmth of spring, and there is certainly plenty to look forward to. Long Island’s own NY Cosmos will soon be celebrating their championship and starting the new soccer season, fishermen need only wait a few short weeks for the start of fluke season, and not long after that an exciting lineup of musicals will be coming to the Island’s oldest theater! 
New York Cosmos Welcome Fans to the Spring Season Opener!
First 5,000 Fans Will Get a Limited Edition Pelé T-Shirt on April 13!
The New York Cosmos are about to embark on a new season, but before they start fighting for another title they’re going to celebrate last year’s championship season. A special pre-game trophy ceremony will be held before the Cosmos’ home opener against the Atlanta Silverbacks at 5 PM on April 13th, and Pelé will be there to celebrate alongside the current squad. The first 5,000 fans in attendance will also receive a special limited edition Pelé Cosmos t-shirt, and all fans will get a schedule magnet to help keep up with the Cosmos!
To order tickets, please visit their website or call the Cosmos at 855-71-COSMOS.
Hot Off the Presses's 2014 April Family Fun Guide!
Spring Fairs, Earth Day & More Seasonal Fun!
April showers bring May flowers! We have officially welcomed Spring and although lots of rain may be coming our way at least it’s not snow! The winter weather is winding down and locals can finally get a break from all the Winter snow and look forward to the warm Spring weather. As those warmer days is approaching and sunny skies begin to brighten up our days, what would be a better way to enjoy it than with all the seasonal fun?! Before having some fun, many locals prefer to begin the season with some Spring cleaning by getting rid of all the junk and clutter in their homes. But once everything is all neat, clean and organized, it’s time to enjoy the spirit of Spring!
