The phosphorescent indoor landscape at Monster Mini Golf immerses putters in an eerie universe that inverts the sun-soaked cheer of conventional courses. Rimmed in glowing barriers, 18 holes lure swingers of all sizes to challenge their coordination and resolve in the face of winged monsters, scowling animated trees, a creepy clown, and their opponents' shockingly dazzling smiles. Sheltered from searing rain and howling wind, the indoor course enables play around hazards such as a spell well and luminous, ghostly windmill at any time of the year. An in-house radio station and DJ mask the sound of pounding hearts with lively beats and course commentary, and golfers looking for additional glory can win prizes by participating in regular contests or at the on-site arcade.
A member-supported, nonprofit organization, the Seatuck Environmental Association works to promote the conservation of Long Island's natural environment through research and educational programs. Members regularly gather with field experts on its 70-acre marshland preserve for scheduled hikes, photography classes, and meditation sessions. The trails and boardwalks that wind through the salt marshes and upland forests also lead to the Suffolk County Environmental Center, housed in a 1917 Normandy-style chateau. Members may tour the historic mansion while admiring features such as arched doorways and diamond-cut windows that allow sunlight to filter into the garret and onto the place where its original steam-powered Nintendo would have stood. The Seatuck Environmental Association also hosts regular fundraising events such as the End of Summer Barbecue and the Bats-N-Brews fundraiser, as well as an array of educational programs for all ages.
Two-time Grammy Hall of Fame inductee Johnny Mathis drapes traditional holiday songs in the golden tinsel of his tenor. From elegant pop classics such as “Chances Are” and “Wonderful, Wonderful” to his storied take on “The Christmas Song,” Johnny’s inimitable lilt has given listeners an oasis from passing fads such as spandex jazz for nearly six decades. On an anniversary tour celebrating 56 years of melody making, Johnny greets fans with an effervescent smile and the world’s luckiest microphone, crooning Yuletide carols that evoke toasty hearths and mistletoe canoodling, and that warm the ears like a hunting cap filled with spiced cider. Built to adorn a 1930s movie palace, the Paramount Theatre's art-deco mosaics, carved-glass fountain of light, and gilded sculptural details firmly prevent the evening's fuzzy feelings from escaping the auditorium.
