With more than 845 locations, Jamba Juice proves to the masses that nutrition can be speedy and delicious. Since the beginning, the company?s product philosophy has revolved around choosing whole fruits and other natural ingredients over artificial flavorings, sweeteners, and preservatives. The menu is completely free of high-fructose corn syrup and trans fats, and it offers additional accommodations for vegan and gluten-free diets.
This naturalistic approach is fully realized in Jamba Juice's selection of smoothies. Made with 100% fruit juice, sherbet, and frozen yogurt, the frosty delights range from all-fruit smoothies such as peach perfection and strawberry whirl to more indulgent creamy treats, including peanut butter moo'd, an enticing blend of peanut butter, bananas, nonfat vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate.

A true micro-brewery, Port Jeff Brewing Company's brewers create high-quality beers in super small batches--each batch yields just 220 gallons of beer. As a result, the beer is ultra-fresh, and brewers are allowed the freedom to create a wide variety of interesting and unique batches. At the tasting room, visitors can try the brewery's flagship Schooner Ale or the summer seasonal, White Beach Wit. They can also fill up a growler to take home for later.
Through hard work, dedication and practice, Michael J Perrota was, by his teens, gigging in cover bands, recording original tunes, and, soon thereafter, teaching guitar to others. At his home studio?where he also composes songs for other artists?Michael designs customized curricula for each of his guitar and bass students. From studying scales to deciphering tabs, Michael guides pupils to the point where they can play their favorite songs, improvise with other musicians, and create tunes of their own.
The stained-glass sign on the entrance to Billie's 1890 Saloon says "est. 1981," but the atmosphere of the cozy neighborhood pub is set squarely in the late 19th century. Worn brick walls and dark varnished wood surround guests as they sip frosty pints of beer and dine on corned-beef sandwiches and chicken wings.
The man's smile stretches almost as wide as the giant striped bass in his right hand. A novice fisherman, he's snagged his very first catch aboard one of Celtic Quest Fishing's group boats. A crew member snaps a photograph of the triumphant moment. Although it depicts only a moment in time, that photo recounts a much larger story. The man can point to it when he tells friends how he grabbed hold of rod and reel, cast a line, and wrestled with a resilient foe—ultimately pulling the fish up onto the dock.
This sort of experience happens frequently aboard Celtic Quest Fishing's group-fishing boats, which can carry 70–100 people at a time. The company, founded by Port Jefferson native Captain Des O’Sullivan, maintains two of the giant vessels. They carry groups out in search of black fish, fluke, porgies, or any other species Poseidon sends out to defend his honor. Regardless of the targeted catch, Celtic Quest Fishing's expert crew members supply all necessary gear, and they happily teach newbies fishing basics.
