It’s Super Bowl weekend, and most of us will be heading on out to parties and bars, but there will still be a whole weekend before that Sunday night event, so let me just load you up with some cool things to check out, either alone or with someone else!

Let me just get some Super Bowl picks out of the way, first off.  If you don’t have a party to go to, fear not!  There are places to go from one end of this Isle of Long to the other!  Mulcahey’s will be a bit over budget at $20 per person, but that includes an open bar and complimentary buffet!  Napper Tandy’s will be running specials throughout the event, and Rookies Sports Club will be, too!  The Harbor Crab is running the deal of the day with FREE shots with every touchdown, a FREE half-time buffet, and $3 Amstels!  Call ahead for reservations for any of these events!

 For you non-sports fans, the Pomodorino restaurants will be offering a special dinner for the ladies between 6-10PM–get 50% off your entree!

Wine me, dine me…

I wish I didn’t have to be at the library for this one!  Corey Creek Vineyards hosts a wine and cheese pairing on Saturday, January 31st and they will be pairing their award winning wines with an assortment of artisanal cheeses. $15 per person.  Reservations are required; RSVP by Friday, January 30th.

Mora’s is having a FREE wine tasting and nosh this Saturday from 3-6PM.

Snooth is an online wine store that I use to find some of the really special wines I read about, but can’t find locally.  Some of the happy surprises I have come across recently include Jekel Vineyards Chardonnay, with the taste of tropical fruit and a steal at under $10, 2007 Bogle Vineyards Chardonnay–which tastes like a much more expensive wine, and the 2005 Wrongo Dongo Monastrell–which has become a staple in my wine cabinet, and is also available locally at many retailers.

I’ve got an art on for you!

The Nassau County Museum of Art has a new exhibit, Long Island Collects–featuring the works of Picasso, Chagall, Cezanne, Degas, Matisse, Renoir and Pollock–all from local collections.  This is the time to go, my friends…before the weather gets nice and the crowds come!

This is cool and funky…take the trip into Brooklyn (it’s still a part of LI!) and check out this LiveDraw at Glasslands!  Boho artsy at its best!

Gotta run, but I have a lot more to get out there for you…check back Saturday PM, look for my picks on Twitter, or feel free to email me at cheapdateli@gmail.com!  Chat soon, you kooky cats!
