In support of local police, the Broadway Tavern will be hosting a rally to “Back the Blue” on Saturday, July 25th.
The purpose of the ride is to show solidarity and support for the men and women in law enforcement. In recent weeks, our local police force has seen unprecedented pushback from the media and by citizens who do not appreciate what the Police Department Members do to ensure that they can feel safe within their local communities. This gathering is one way that some are looking to show their support for law enforcement.
The event is scheduled to begin at 12PM at the Broadway Tavern in Malverne, where riders are encouraged to come to meet for bagels, coffee, and to gear up for the ride over to the event.
At 1 PM, it will be Kickstands Up and the ride over to Eisenhower Park will begin. The ride will end at Football field #4/ Parking Lot #6/6A, where the Back the Blue Demonstration will take place. The event is scheduled to take place from 2-4 PM. If inclement weather occurs, the rain date for the event is scheduled for Sunday, July 26th at the same time.
Riders and attendees are encouraged to wear blue and bring signs to show support for our local law enforcement heroes who risk their lives for our safety every day. Thin blue line flags are also encouraged to be brought to this event.
Following the event, Broadway Tavern will be hosting an afterparty, where the band “Major Trends” will be performing. This live performance comes 2 weeks after Mike Fritz from the Major Trends band drew a large crowd to the Broadway Tavern on July 12th.
What is the Broadway Tavern?
The Broadway Tavern is a hidden gem of a bar in Malverne that has recently undergone impressive renovations from its new owners. The interior of the bar was stripped and completely re-done, as well as the entire back patio area. The Broadway Tavern has been a staple in the local community for years, and the new owners are looking to share the great experience with others from around Long Island.
"Everything that's going on in the world right now, we wanted to be able to do something good ... and not just running to run across Long Island, you're running for charity," Ryan Clifford said. "I don't know what I'm going to do if they ask me what are you going to do after this," he added. "I'm just going to keep running for fun and exercise."
The “World Famous” Broadway Tavern now routinely hosts live music on the weekends that draws a crowd from all over Long Island. It is conveniently located near the Long Island Railroad Malverne train station as well. Stop by to see what all the hype is about!
