Bossy's Light Be With You,
Just wanted to put this out there. I bartend on the weekends at Buckley's -- a dive bar right next to the Valley Stream train station -- and will be there on Draft Night (Friday).
If you are looking for a place to watch the draft amidst bouncy castles and Islander season ticket salespeople you can go to the Coliseum. However, if you are looking for a place to get overserved and watch the draft (with volume) then I am more than happy to serve you more ice cold Miller Lites than you can shake a puck moving defenseman at.
This is not an OFFICIAL DRAFT PARTY, but instead a place to obsess with other Islander fans.
As far as watering holes go, Buckley's is on the cheaper side and $20 will get you farther there than just about any bar on Long Island, so there's that.
Here are the particulars for those interested:
Buckley's 159 S Franklin Ave Valley Stream, NY 11580
Right next to the Valley Stream train station. There is plenty of parking.
