OABT Season 2 Finale Live In Patchogue

OABT Season 2 Finale Live In Patchogue

by Darren Meenan September 20, 2018 0 Comments

Come hang out at The Cliffton Bar in Patchogue on Thursday September 27th, as we close out the second season of Orange and Blue Thing.

The Cliffton
151 East Main Street 
Patchogue, New York 11772


The Cliffton (formerly known as The Garage, and a bunch of other names before that) was opened by my buddy Brian Neal last winter. We used to bartend together a decade ago at Beach Bar in Hampton Bays, and Slopes up at Hunter Mountain.

The Garage was a dump, and would've been a hit on Bar Rescue. It was probably one of the last places you wanted to end up at on a Saturday night. Brian took a gamble and in less than a year, turned the location in to one of the most laid back spots in the village of Patchogue. He blew out a wall, built an outdoor patio, created some signature cocktails, and offers up inexpensive drink options. It's not upscale by any means, and he wants to market it as an industry dive bar. It's a nice change of pace from some of the snobby places down the block. 

Great drink selection with solid prices. Just don't order a lemon drop shot. That'll set you back $45.

Season 2 of OABT was a pretty wild one. Since Brian Erni's departure I've had a pretty revolving door of guest co-hosts. Thanks to Josh Oshinsky, Trevor Gill, Jim Breuer, Nelson Figueroa, Tim Reilly, Nicky G$, and Lizy Saroyan for sharing the mic with me each Thursday. It's been really fun. 

Also for sure gotta thank the season 2 guests. Marc Carig, Mickey Callaway, Brandon Nimmo, Chris Flexen, Ted Berg, Pete McCarthy, Matt Cerrone, Steve Gelbs, Cliff Floyd, Anthony DiComo, Josh Lewin, Maggie Gray, and Joe DeMayo all hopped on this season. 

Thanks to Dru Jimenez, Tim Fitzpatrick, Adam Myers, and Keith Terra for taking over the phone duties while Lizy co-hosted on occasion. And to Keith Blacknick for posting the show as a podcast after the live gig wraps up each week.

The Cliffton will open at 4:30pm on Thursday the 27th, and OABT will go live at 6pm on FB Live and Twitter. We'll end around 7, and stay afterwards to watch the Mets game.

Our friends from Oyster Bay Brewing Company will also be on hand, and their tasty Pumpkin Ale, and Barn Rocker will be on special for $4. 

The kitchen isn't set up yet, but they'll be some free wings, and pizza while supplies last.

Since we won't have a phone line set up, you're more than welcome to get on camera and join in on the convo. Get on the mic and chat with us about the Mets season, or whatever. We're gonna have a pretty loose format. 

We aren't real sure if 10 or 100 people are gonna show up, but either way it'll be a fun time as we kick off the last weekend of 2018 baseball. Come on out. 

They'll be a champagne toast to The Captain before we sign off. If you'll be watching from home, get some bubbly on ice.
