A few of you have been asking what’s being filmed around town. Taken from a filming locations website onlocationvacations.com is the following:
Royal Pains is filming around Park Ave and Grand Blvd Long Beach.
Royal Pains: RT @Kamari102 @olv Any idea what is filming on the corner of Broadway & Magnolia in Long Beach NY today? (Source – Monday, May 14: Filming Locations in NYC, L.A., New Orleans & more including Admission, Blood Ties, & Suits)
So what is it? Grand Blvd or Magnolia? I also heard Lola’s (180 W Park Ave) was in the mix… Either case, this isn’t the first time Royal Pains has been shot in Long Beach. Various other locations include the boardwalk, beach and Dairy Barn. Is this show even any good? And does Long Beach profit from shows/movies being filmed here or does Nassau County hold that grip? Our seabythecity staff is looking into it…

ALL ARE WELCOME! View the event flier on the bottom of this page, or visit Long Beach Waterfront Warriors online @ www.lbwaterfrontwarriors.org.
Jamie Lynch, the Co-Chair of the Long Beach Waterfront Warriors send me an update of this year’s events and an outline of what the organization is all about:
This year we will be hosting 30 service members and their families from Walter Reed – July 20th – July 26th. We have planned various activities which include fishing, surfing, a trip to NYC, kayaking, and other activities and the highlight this year will be our service members being honored at the Mets/Nationals game on July 23rd. As always, the welcome parade and BBQ is a big hit and draws the entire community out to honor our heroes. This year’s welcome is scheduled for Sunday, July 22nd.
Our efforts to achieve these goals of transporting service members and their families and to fund the activities requires us to reach out to the public for their financial support. Additionally, there are many ways for the public to get involved. Those wishing to donate their home to host a service member and their family, to be a liaison, or to volunteer their time during the visit is always greatly appreciated. There are many avenues for people to get involved, and we encourage this….what more noble a cause is there then to give back to those who put their life on the line for us? Our organization is in its 4th year and has been very successful and is growing, yet this only happens with the support from our Long Beach family.
Thus far, with the support of the Long Beach community, we have been able to support hundreds of service members and their families. In addition to providing Walter Reed service members an annual vacation in Long Beach, we have also been able to benefit the North Port VA by assisting with the rehabilitation of their recreation facility, providing computer and Internet access and assisting with funding a sports rehabilitation trip to Colorado. Additionally, we have sent over 1,000 care packages overseas to our service members during the holidays, and most recently received and fulfilled a request for supplies from the 82nd Airborne (we must be doing something right if we get a call from the 82nd Airborne!).
Our organization is a completely volunteer based group with 95% of donations going back to service members. We encourage everyone to visit our web site – www.lbwaterfrontwarriors.org – and to help us continue to grow and give back to those who deserve much more.

This past thursday I had the pleasure of experiencing “Girl’s Night Out” at Lola’s Kitchen and Wine Bar (180 W Park Ave, Long Beach, NY). Some of the deals include: $15 pitchers of Sangria (girls only) and $15 dinners (again, girls only).
Let me tell you, the place was rocking (with all girls). At one point I was one of two males in the entire dining area (not counting the staff). I would say that the female to male ratio was 50 to 1. The scene was totally Sex and the City (by the sea). I was getting drunk off all the perfume and hairspray smells and the men’s bathroom was clean and empty. It was great!
I’m not going to do a proper review of Lola’s. You can find better ones at YELP. Basically, in a nut shell: the food is fine, the atmosphere and staff are great and the drinks will get you drunk. I’m solely writing this as a public service announcement for all you single men out there:
ATTENTION MEN: GO TO LOLA’S ON A THURSDAY NIGHT.
Did I mention that the female to male ratio was 50 to 1?
The bar area did have more men, but not packed. So any single guys out there looking to meet a girl, don’t be intimated by the “Girl’s Night Out” banner and go to Lola’s on a thursday night. You just aren’t allowed to order from the pink menu. So why am I giving away this information? Well, lets just say I wear a ring on one of my fingers and have no use for the single scene…. haha
Here are some pickup lines you can use that have worked for me in the past:“Are You google? Because you’re the one I’m searching for” “Is that a mirror in your pants? Because I see myself in them” “Do you have a library card? Because I’m checking you out.” “I lost my phone number. Can I have yours?” Girl’s Night Out @ Lola’s Kitchen and Wine Bar Every Thursday Night 180 W Park Ave, Long Beach, NY
