Oktoberfest On Long Island’s East End!

Prost (Cheers)!  Noch ein Bier, bitte (Another beer please).  The language of Oktoberfest, and on Saturday, September 30th from 1pm-4pm, the language of the Hotel Indigo Poolscape.

Join us as we pay homage to this legendary Bavarian festival, with traditional German fare, Warsteiner beer, live music by Smitty’s Polka Band, the time honored keg tapping ceremony, and crowd favorite, mug holding contest.

We’ll have Warsteiner’s specialty Oktoberfest beer on tap, which they brew in limited quantities, especially for Oktoberfest celebrations. They describe this beer as “well-balanced, mild and smooth taste with a uniquely soft, hoppy aftertaste.” Best of all, your ticket purchase includes a free souvenir stein filled with this Oktoberfest brew.

Warsteiner will also bring their Grapefruit Special Edition beer. It’s a shandy-style drink that’s half beer and half grapefruit soft drink. Clean and crisp, this naturally refreshing beer combines the best of the German brewing tradition with a little fruitiness.  An ideal flavor we think for the somewhat still warm temperature of early Fall.  

For a deeper dive into the beer’s German roots, guests will be able to take a virtual reality tour of the village where Warsteiner has been brewed since 1753. Just slip on their headset and relax for a beautiful journey to Germany. All participants will receive a surprise at the end of the tour!

So, come don your lederhosen and clink steins with us for an Ode to Oktoberfest you won’t soon forget! Tickets are on sale for $15 on TicketFly and $20 at the door. And please don’t forget to invite your friends on Facebook here and spread the word!

End Your Summer with BBQ & Whiskey

Celebrate the last days of summer with BBQ and Whiskey out on our patio! You can take in some rays while enjoying a good old fashioned BBQ and listening to live music by singer-songwriter Jeff LeBlanc. Then, wash it all down with Widow Jane Bourbon Whiskey, an acclaimed spirit distilled in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

The Whiskey

This bourbon whiskey has notes of orange, spice, cherry wood, and olive oil and a buttery, toffee-like aroma. Fans of traditional Kentucky whiskey will definitely enjoy this New York twist on traditional bourbon whiskeys. Whereas Kentucky whiskeys get their unique, beloved taste from the minerals in Kentucky limestone, the Rosendale Limestone used for creating Widow Jane Whiskey contains even more of the beneficial minerals that make a good bourbon. It’s a much-awarded whiskey, named #1 bourbon by GQ and heralded by Edible Manhattan and Brooklyn Magazine.

The Music

Jeff LeBlanc, a Long Island native, started out with dreams of becoming a middle-school teacher.  However, LeBlanc’s discovery of songwriting led him down a different path. His first single, “Until We Get It Right” entered into the rotation of Sirius/XM’s The Coffee House, giving him enough exposure to headline a 60-date college tour where he was praised as everything from “the new John Mayer” to an artist “perfectly in tune with his audience.” Jeff has also been called upon to open for household names like the Goo Goo Dolls, Lifehouse and he’s toured with a wide range of acts such as Gavin DeGraw, Tori Kelly, and Colbie Caillat. Catch this rising star while he’s here!

The Food

Bistro 72 will grill up racks of baby back ribs, cheeseburgers, and Mesquite chicken. Each entrée includes a side of baked beans, a twice-baked potato, and a piece of grilled local corn. There’s no better way to say goodbye to the summer season.

Call us now and reserve your table (631) 369-3325. No ticket purchase required.

Wine & Dine Every Wednesday

You have a new reason to look forward to the work week.

Every Wednesday from 3pm – 7pm, you can receive half off a bottle of wine with the purchase of any entrée. If wine isn’t your thing, we’re offering local draft beer for only $6 and a prix fixe dinner menu will be available for $29 as well. Each Wine & Dine Wednesday features live music by our beloved pianist Lydia Sabosto. However, on occasion, we’ll showcase other surprise musical guests, like Bakithi Kumalo, a longtime bassist for Paul Simon.

Bakithi Kumalo

So, come join the fun by calling (631) 369-3325 and reserving a table. Drop-ins are always welcome, too.

Palm Beer, Mussel Pots, and Michael Duca on the Patio this Thursday

Don’t miss out! Next Thursday, August 17th is Palm on The Patio, the fourth event of our Patio Series, a night of craft libations, live music, and fine dining by Bistro 72. This week’s featured beverage is Belgian craft brew Palm beer and live music by local musician Michael Duca.

The Music

Born and raised on Long Island, Michael Duca has been playing in Long Island for over a decade where he has grown a loyal following and has now become a highly requested musical act for many occasions.

His acoustic adaptations of covers range from Elvis, The Beatles, Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd up to and including top artists of the 80’s 90’s and today like Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers,The Black Eyed Peas, Usher, Mumford & Sons, Adele, Rihanna, and Phil Phillips,

You can see a range of his covers here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuPJe-pk9UA&feature=youtu.be

The Beer

We’ll be serving Palm’s namesake beer, a beer defined by its honey-like mellowness, fruity aroma, and mild caramel flavor. Made for socializing, the flavor nuances of Palm beer make it an excellent pairing for the rich flavors and textures. This beer was once one of the best-selling “specialist” beers in the Netherlands and the brewers have been crafting great beer since 1706.

The Food
Palm beer pairs well with seafood. Naturally, our special tasting menu for the evening will feature Belgian favorite mussel pots with frites and mayonnaise. We will also offer our signature seafood tower which includes shrimp, snow crab, and oysters on the ½ shell. For a walk on the sweeter side, we’re serving Belgian-style waffles with your choice of toppings.

If you can’t make this week’s event, there’s two more Patio Series events you can look forward to. Check out our BBQ & Whiskey event in September or All Things Apple event in October.

For more information or reservations, call Bistro 72 at (631) 369-3325. Also, be sure to tag us in your photos on Twitter (@thebistro72) and Instagram (@bistro72). We look forward to serving you!
