The Arcade Age Interactive Exhibit at The Cradle

It's on like Donkey Kong! In the 90's, I spent countless hours and quarters at the arcade - and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. The fun and excitement that came from being in front of those machines are indescribable. This exhibit not only allows you to play over 50 arcade classics such as Donkey Kong, Centipede, Space Invaders and Ms. Pac Man, but also allows you to learn about the people behind the early video game technology in the 40's and 50's. Visitors will be able to gain a deeper understanding of the impact video games have had on our culture throughout the years and the technology that made it possible.

One of the hottest Greek festivals on the island with a raffle that includes cars, cash, Apple merchandise and other incredible electronics. The festival also features all of the Greek specialties your heart could possibly desire including roasted lamb, moussaka, gyros, souvlaki and pastries. Be sure to bring your dancing shoes because there will be plenty of Greek music, and what a waste of the night it would be to not impress the rest of the dance floor with your amazing moves. There will also be a flea market, games, rides, and Greek wine and beer. I'm going to look sweet cruising on the Southern State in my new BMW. July 7th-10th. Various times. St. John's Greek Orthodox Church, 77 Montauk Highway, Blue Point, 11715. Click here to visit the official St. John's 2016 Greek Festival Website.

I don't know how many times I've lost my meal on some those rides, but I never seem to learn. As soon as I arrive, I am drawn to the zeppoles like a moth to a flame. This festival features everything you could possibly want out of a festival - thrilling rides, games, live music, food, magician, contortionist, racing pigs, oddity show...just to name a few. There will be special fireworks shows on Saturdays  June 11th and 18th at 9:30 p.m. If you see a guy with sugar all over his face...and vomit on his pants, it is probably me. June 9th-19th. Various Times. Suffolk Community College, 1001 Crooked Hill Rd., Brentwood, 11717. Click here for complete schedule and coupons.

This is an annual opportunity to geek out on Long Island like you mean it. Friday night, there will be a film festival featuring a variety of sci-fi and superhero-related shorts being shown in the 350-seat IMAX Dome Theatre (complimentary popcorn included).

A variety of cars from movies and television will be presented in the parking lot of the museum, so you can have some jaw-dropping fun seeing some real classics. There will also be a few exhibits featuring original props and costumes from classic motion pictures. You can shop until you drop at over 300 tables of pop-culture merchandise from a variety of vendors including vintage and modern toy retailers, comic book retailers, video game companies, comic book publishers, manga and anime retailers, and small press publishers. For additional fees, you can get photos taken with and/or autographs from Brent Spiner, Karen Gillan, Elizabeth Henstridge, Ultimate Sentai Power Rangers, Reiko Chiba, Yuta Mochizuki, William Kircher and Chase Masterson.
