The Great Neck Plaza Business Improvement District (BID) and the Village of Great Neck Plaza continue the Summer Promenade Series on Thursday, July 9. Taking place on Bond Street from 6:30 p.m. – 10:30 p.m., all residents from Great Neck and neighboring communities are encouraged to attend and experience a variety of Great Neck’s fine dining options in a unique outdoor café environment.
“Our summer promenades are a great opportunity for the whole family to come together, for a romantic night out or for a fun evening with friends,” said Ron Edelson, Great Neck Plaza BID Executive Director. “We want to invite people of all ages, from all over Long Island, Queens and the surrounding areas to enjoy the great dining and atmosphere the Plaza has to offer.”
Each participating restaurant including Bee-Organic, Era, La Rotonda, Elaine’s Asian Bistro and the Great Neck Diner will be offering prix fixe menus or discounted dishes. In addition, Akbar the Caricaturist will be returning, offering promenade guests free caricatures on a first-come, first-served basis.
Entertainment will feature Gathering Time performing live. The band was voted best band runner up and top folk band in the 2011 Long Island Press readers’ poll. Ranging from traditional folk to classic rock, Gathering Time appeals to all ages. Band members include Hillary Foxsong, Stuart Markus, and Gerry McKeveny. The head-turning folk-rock harmony trio’s CD When One Door Closes reached #3 on the folk DJ charts in January 2014.
The friendly atmosphere of Great Neck Plaza is the perfect setting to enjoy the area’s best dining and shopping in the summer. All stores in Great Neck Plaza are within walking distance of the LIRR’s Great Neck train station, and the Plaza features more than 1,600 convenient parking spaces on-street and in municipal parking fields and garages.
