There’s the NHL Draft. There’s the jam-packed Islanders Draft Party. And then there’s the Post-Draft Draft Celebration.
R.C. Dugans in East Meadow, two minutes from the Coliseum.
10:00 pm – midnightish.
$1 Miller pints if the Islanders draft John Tavares first overall. 25-cent Miller pints if they draft anyone other than Tavares first overall.
A brief Point Blank review with The Jaff of the Islanders’ first round selections and preview of Saturday’s draft proceedings. And a chance for some fans to have their say.
No cover charge.
If you don’t want Miller and don’t eat wings, there will be plenty of alternatives at the bar and in the kitchen.
The event is brought to you by R.C. Dugans and the Miller Brewing Company, but let’s be blunt: no one’s making any money off Johnny T. dollar or HedDuch 25-cent pints and free wings – least of all Dugans owner, Islanders season ticketholder and fellow Point Blank reader Jay Dugan. Jay just wanted to offer Islanders fans a place to unwind after the draft and enjoy some hockey conversation. He’s a good man, so I’m showing my support.
RC Dugans is located at 2314 Hempstead Turnpike in East Meadow, 2.1 miles East of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. The phone number is 516.520.0325. There’s plenty of parking in the back of the pub, which is on the south side of Hempstead Turnpike.
Since it’s an establishment, guests must be 21 or older. Please drink responsibly. More than that, just stop by and meet up with Islanders fans after the draft on Friday night. Maybe if the Islanders don’t draft Tavares, Dugans can set up a dunk tank and I can be the clown.
RSVPs only in this Comment thread. Draft talk continues below. Thanks.
