Such a densely-populated area as this offers so many choices on activities that one might not know where to start.  If you’re a popular socialite like me, you’ll want to go out, even in this freezing cold.  Here are a few tried and true places that I personally recommend to check-out around this area.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Quite possibly the greatest place to have a birthday celebration is at Dave and Buster’s, which houses more video games than a nerd’s wildest dreams.  Liquor, a full restaurant and Time Crisis all stand under this one, glorious roof.  With air hockey, pool tables, bowling alleys and skeeball, the young and old, singles or couples, friends and families can all enjoy these activities equally.  If you want to see where the nearest one is located by you, visit www.daveandbusters.com for addresses and hours.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
When in doubt of what to enjoy, there’s always the movies, offering to enthusiastically consume 2 hours of your life.  You can look for student discount offers, and the matinées are always cheaper at local theaters.  Or splurge and bedazzle yourself witnessing the wonders of IMAX theaters.  Check www.fandango.com for show times and locations of the ones nearest to you.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Looking for Spring fashions? Head to any of our fine malls.  Roosevelt Field and The Source (Fortunoff) are located on Old Country Road off the Meadowbrook Parkway.  There’s a D&B nearby, if you have any spare change leftover to use there.  If you venture further out on the Island, you can enjoy the new strips at Deer Park, along with a new movie theater as well.. . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
A favorite mainstay of college kids everywhere are our local tea and coffee houses/shops.  The Witch’s Brew on Hempstead Turnpike serves organic, fair-trade tea and coffee alongside delicious vegan desserts.  You can also head to the city on West Broadway to visit Sanctuary T.  This cozy place hosts special teas (aren’t I clever) including blooming ones, with an additional food menu.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Challenge your friends at one of the pool halls to escape the cold. Raxx of West Hempstead showcases lots of big-screen TVs with every single game on display.  The Cue Bar, if you’re done enjoying other activities on the other side of the street, is easy to stumble upon on Bell Boulevard.  You could also drive up Francis Lewis Boulevard to frequent Millennium Pool Hall, if you can deal with us prep alumni and current students.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
For an eating experience that you’ll never forget, Long Island dons some of the finest eateries in the World.  K’isso in Lake Success offers authentic Japanese food, with fresh…raw sushi, and delicious tonkatsu (fried pork) for us non-fish eaters.  And for that classic Greek taste, head to Mythos on Northern Boulevard, where they even have their own homemade sausages.  Ever try a Brazilian barbecue? Well, you can enjoy those festivities and tons of meat at Greenfield‘s Churrascaria in Flushing..Trattoria L’Incontro (in Astoria) and Ciao Baby (with four locations on the Island) offers delicious Italian food in ridiculous portions, without fetching a high price.  But, if you just want to grab a slice of Sicilian, the number 1-rated place for that is Umberto’s of New Hyde Park.  I’ve personally brought patrons there to dine from Pennsylvania to Finland without any disappointment.  And for your morning routine, stop at the Brooklyn Bagel and Coffee Factory in Brooklyn, right? Wrong! That’s also found in Astoria on Ditmars Boulevard, with a plethora of cream cheese and bagel flavors, along with other breakfast delights.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
For additional ideas (bowling, ice-skating), you can look for other activities on citysearch.com.  We’re so very fortunate to live in such an accessible place that has such a varied array of delights to entertain just about everybody. Aside from the needed study breaks, head to your local businesses to support this great area where we live, learn, eat and play.
