Point Lookout Golf Outing

The first annual Point Lookout Golf Outing was held this past Wednesday at the Lido Golf Course. As you may know the management of the golf course has been taken on by the Town of Hempstead and our friend Matt Thompson was instrumental in setting up the outing.

My employees tell me that I need not worry about that. This ...

Its time for an update concerning new developments at JA’s.  As many of you may have heard our Executive Chef, Nicole Roarke, has taken on a new job with the FiOS 1 News show “Restaurant Hunter” with Rob Petrone.  Nicole, as well as JA’s itself has appeared on a number of Restaurant Hunter episodes over the last few years.  FiOS 1 News must have realized what had become apparent to us in that in addition to being a great chef Nicole is also a natural in front of the camera talking ...

Michigan Dave Kellan

One of the good aspects of being part of a restaurant is that you get to meet some pretty interesting and talented people.  Over the past year we have had Dave Kellan grace our Tavern with some pretty inspired music.  Dave's not your generic singer-songwriter, he is an ass-kicking guitarist that is complemented by some pretty awe-inspiring vocals.  Dave mixes in some mighty original tunes with a great variety of  bluesy mainstays (I've been told by a number of people that he does a better ...
