Without a stop at the Broken Down Valise in Mattituck, no road-trip to the North Fork is complete.

One of my favorite dive bars on Long Island features $3 PBR’s all day, all night. Serving the colorful locals and the occasional tourists on Tuesday afternoons is the joyful Michelle. Stop in on Wednesdays or Thursdays to talk to my compadre and deep-thinking friend, George.

No pool table.

Nice juke.

Friendly people.

Gets a little crazy weekend nights – but fun.
