A well-kept secret tucked away in Lindenhurst, The Loyal Dog Ale House is home to more than 100 different beers from around the world. At any given time, Loyal Dog has more than a dozen craft selections on tap, and if visitors want to enjoy a brew at home, they can fill up a glass growler instead furtively pouring drinks into their shoes. The Loyal Dog’s beer list acts as a fitting accomplice to its menu of finger-friendly eats, such as burgers and Jack Daniels pulled pork sandwiches. The international brews and pub grub also fuel festive events throughout the week, including 90s-themed trivia and music on Wednesday nights.
Somo @ 722 pairs its American eats—burgers, pastas, and seafood—with domestic beers on tap. Pad your stomach with boneless wings or parmesan truffle fries before indulging in hearty entrees such as beef goulash and chicken pot pie. Jumbo lump crab cake forms the base of the crabby patty sandwich and the turkey triple decker sandwich intimidates lesser food items with layers of Virginia ham, turkey, cheddar, and bacon.

The FAA-certified instructors at Nassau Flyers have helped countless students obtain pilot licenses since 1976. Today, their rental fleet still roars to life, lifts off from Republic Airport, and soars into the skies above Long Island's shorelines and New York City's iconic skyline. Nestled within the likes of a Cessna 152 or a Piper Cruiser PA28-140, the instructors let students take the controls during their very first lesson, and then guide them all the way to FAA licensure.
The ground school complements this in-air training with classroom work and simulator time. Their Redbird FMX full-motion simulator wraps students in a fully enclosed cockpit and lets them practice various scenarios. When not training the next generation of pilots, Nassau Flyers' staff is often in the hanger maintaining aircrafts or anxiously awaiting the new Wilbur Wright action figure to put in their pilot shop.
The licensed aviators at Positive Rate Gear Up command a trio of Piper aircraft, which they use during flying lessons and their own aerial jaunts. The squad includes seasoned veterans ranging from commercial airline pilots to recreational fliers, and takes on students who are working toward wings of their own. The club's nest at Republic Airport exposes trainees to a busy Class D airspace, allowing them to become accustomed to sharing the air and negotiating heavy traffic caused by 10-cloud pileups. The team also teaches discovery flights aimed at beginners that help them understand cockpit instrumentation and controls as they try their hand at a few aerial maneuvers.
