Ok folks, the biggest restaurant opening in LIC occurs this Tuesday, June 9, at Maiella LIC on Center Boulevard. Just like this year’s Macy’s Fireworks, legendary Queens chef Rocco Sacramone’s newest dining establishment is going to help pull the axis of NYC closer to LIC. Expect Uber cars lined up in packs of ten on the street.
//This Sunday is Kids Day at the LIC Flea – Sing LIC!, a local childrens’ choir will be performing at 11:45am on Sunday and Secret Theatre will be performing a new children’s musical, Pirate Pete’s Parrot @ 1:30.
//LIC Arts Camp at the LIC Arts Center on 23rd Street in Court Square – chalk one up for the home-town camp. It runs only 3 weeks in July and kids will be exposed to Dance, Drama, Music, and ArtsnCrafts.

//Did you hear that Hillary is coming out on Roosevelt Island? Those of you overlooking the East River may have noticed a big temporary structure being erected adjacent to Four Freedoms Park and wondered which hedge fund/PE mogul is holding his wedding reception there. That’s not it, instead Hillary Clinton is holding her first big 2016 rally there on June 13. Can’t say I blame her, the view is fantastic!
//Finally, horse racing fans, and those who like a big party, the Belmont Stakes is tomorrow, post time 6:50pm. At 3:5 I wouldn’t bet the favorite, but I think you have a pretty good chance at seeing history being made. Having been to a dozen or so previous Belmonts, the only advice I can give you outside of handicapping the race, is bring your own food.
Look at that, it always comes back to food. Mangia!
