qgazzet.com writes: "For 47 years, Cassino Italian Restaurant and Lounge has occupied the corner of Vernon Boulevard and 47th Road. Founder Sal Anzalone, an Italian immigrant, spent much of his life in this restaurant, meeting and greeting friends and neighbors and talking about concerns of the Long Island City community. Anzalone became a member of the local community board, sat on the New York 2012 committee to bring the Olympic Games to New York and was a community activist and advocate for many years. In 2006, a year after he died, a street corner was named after this legendary man, just next to his beloved restaurant. His son, Andrew Anzalone, and Andrew's wife, Rosemary, have taken over the restaurant and recently held a grand reopening with a ribbon cutting ceremony led by City Councilmember Eric Gioia.".

"Not quite a pub, not quite a lounge, this super laid-back and trendy bar offers cheap drinks and lots of fun. The great drinks and friendly bartenders make this place a great stop on your LIC bar hopping weekend. Dominie's Hoek offers a rustic feel with a contemporary edge with hanging colored lamps, wood floor, oak furnishings and exposed brick walls. Its comfortable environment is low-key, but welcoming enough to strike up a conversation with the nearby patrons. Be sure to check out the live music on their gorgeous patio during the summer. "
