POINT BLANK NIGHT II: March 10, NYI at TorontoHockey talk, a raffle, maybe a guest and more


Point Blank Night 2 is set for Tuesday, March 10 from 7:30-10:30 pm at Gabrielle’s Brasserie & Wine Bar in Rockville Centre when the Islanders play in Toronto.


Once again I’ll be able to say thank you to all the readers that have made Point Blank a major hit.


The evening will include:


  • Islanders – Maple Leafs on 3 screens


  • Complimentary wine and appetizers, courtesy of Gabrielle’s


  • Conversation and merriment with your fellow Point Blankers


  • A raffle for Islanders tickets and all sorts of decent stuff


  • Maybe a surprise guest or two. At PBN I, Sound Tigers head coach Jack Capuano was kind enough to join us and take questions



All of the above are free without any strings attached. Every Point Blank reader who shows up at Gabrielle’s has the opportunity to complete one raffle ticket by merely printing their real name and nothing else on it.


To answer the question in advance, no other great establishment on Long Island has stepped up to give us their entire bar and offer the level of service (and free stuff) that Gabrielle’s has. There is a possibility for one final PB Night toward the end of the season at a different joint to be announced. Negotiations are in the early stages.


Gabrielle’s is located at 22 North Park Avenue in Rockville Centre, next to the inappropriately named Fantasy movie theatre. The phone number is 516.536.6611.


Please let us know in Comments if you are coming so we can line up enough appetizers, wine and prizes for just about everybody. If you don’t live in the area, you don’t have to RSVP. We understand.
