Second Manhasset Al Fresco a hit!

The Island Now

The Manhasset Chamber of Commerce launched its second Manhasset Al Fresco event on Sunday July 11, this time on the North Plandome Road closure from Hillside Avenue to Colonial Parkway.  The community enjoyed outdoor dining and live entertainment on Plandome Road.

The event was spectacular, locals dined outdoors and enjoyed drinks while watching the Euro Cup games at Greens Irish Pub and Pita Station.  Gino’s of Manhasset held a fundraiser to support St Jude’s Children Hospital.

Louies of Manhasset served their special “Manhasset Al Fresco Menu” while Publicans held a Corn hole Tournament.  Young’s Fine Wine & Spirits offered an array of alcoholic beverages for a successful outdoor tasting on Plandome Road.

The Manhasset Chamber successfully brought awareness to the community regarding the petition for proposed Sewer project on Plandome Road.  The project would benefit economic growth, including bringing in businesses that would otherwise have difficulty in cesspool areas and cutting down on expenses for existing businesses.

It was nice to see everyone come out to support our local businesses.  Kids and adults of all ages participated in A&F Market’s “Dunk the Butcher” and enjoyed acoustic performances by Raffi Froundjian and Liam Morrisey and live music from local band The Porch Light Dance and Rock Band.  It was a beautiful night, a great crowd and the perfect ambiance!

Manhasset Al Fresco is part of the Town of North Hempstead’s “Lift up local” initiative.  Hosted by the Manhasset Chamber of Commerce outdoor dining, shopping and entertainment will be on Plandome Road.

The events are scheduled to take place every other Sunday, alternating every other week between South Plandome Road and North Plandome Road from 3:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. creating a pedestrian-only zone.

The next Manhasset Al Fresco event takes place Sunday, July 25 on South Plandome Road.  South Plandome Road will be closed to traffic from Park Avenue to Dennis Street.
