If you're talking about "the nutty," I live like 5 minutes from there and it's one of the worst places on earth. Finley's is a step up, still attracts too many d-bags but at least they pour good beer.

I never cared for the bar scene and I still don't however back from 1990-1999 I used to frequent the dance clubs.

I was thinking the same thing as you. That's like saying Four is out of the way.

Apprently he must mean out of the way for Suffolk folks or maybe just West Islip people that think TJ Finnlys and The Nutty irishmen are their local neighborhood bars.

Tried googling a bit and this is the other clubs, prior to The Crazy Donkey. I couldn't remember what it was right before the Crazy Donkey but I believe the name started with a "D" as they had the huge letter D on the building prior to the Donkey opening.

SPIZE: (1983-1987)
SPIZE II (1987-1993)
Club Uforia (Spize) (1993-1994)

I'm glad its closing, I've been there a number of times and always had a bad time.

One time they had an open bar, so I figured i'd give it one more shot. Their open bar was a small table outside, with lines going in all directions, bathroom sized cup drinks of the cheapest liquor available, with ice filled to the top.

The nutty irishman is my venue of choice. Less popped collar, hair slicked guidos!

Wow, I've only gone to Crazy Donkey a few times but it always seemed to have a packed house in the summer. Didn't think it would close.
I remember seeing the big D on it too. I think it was called either District or Diesel, but I never actually went in until it became Crazy Donkey.
While the nightlife in that location and the spot where Kodiak's is (formerly Beach House/Ski house, Cyberia, Ice, Sahara, and Oragin) seems to change over the years, the one place that apparently stands the test of time on Rte 110 is the 56th Fighter Group.

Like I said before I think its more because the paramount in Huntington will take away a lot of business in that area for live music. I think it was district AND Diesel. Diesel first then district.

How can you compete with live nation when it comes to live music?

a better question might be how can you compete with that little island full of big buildings located only a short rain ride away?
