After a year in business, Dan Roth and Ray Capone are set to mark the anniversary and grand opening of their bar.
Stop in to Sea Cliff’s Still Partners on May 29. Horns will be blaring, strings strumming, and the piano pounding as owners Roth and Capone mark the one-year anniversary of their bar, Roaring ‘20s-style.
“We booked a seven-piece jazz band,” says Roth, also a musician who had always wanted a bar/small venue where music would play a big part. “It’s going to be a heck of a party.”
Friends since fourth grade growing up in Williston Park, Roth and Capone bought the bar, known as Partners for about 30 years, last May. Since then they’ve worked on upgrading almost every bit of the space, which they renamed Still Partners. The name fits, as a nice collection of Partners’ signs and other treasures still adorns the walls.
Changes include the completely remodeled kitchen, which will soon be serving gastropub fare, led by local chef John Doran. Roth and Capone have 12 beers on tap and are always thinking about what’s missing from their line. Still Partners also hosts events regularly, including live music and local talent showcases—for adults and kids alike.
“Having the kids’ event [in March] was one of the true highlights,” says Roth. “It was great to give all of these young kids who are passionate about music a stage, sound system, and let them know what it feels like to get up under the lights.”
The bar’s first touring band—traveling to Sea Cliff all the way from Texas—will be performing honky tonk and country music all night long on June 6.
While they’ve been in business for a year, Roth and Capone see the anniversary party as a grand opening, too. Why? In their minds the major changes will have been done. Now they can work on the small things.
Says Roth, “We’ll keep adjusting until things are just right.”

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015.
The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families.
This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar.
I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
