Question of the Day: Crazy Donkey Closing

What do you think of the closure?

The Crazy Donkey and a sports bar may potentially be opening in its location.

What do you think of the concert venue closing? Will it hurt the local music scene? Does Farmingdale need another sports bar? Tell us in the comments.

ANOTHER SPORTS BAR??? AS IF FARMINGALE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH "BARS" TOTING TVS SHOWING SPORTS! LIVING IN THE FARMINGDALE AREA FOR MORE THAN 15 YEARS, I HAVE SEEN A HUGE, STEADY DECLINE IN THE "CLASS" IT ONCE HAD WITH REGARD TO ENTERTAINMENT VENUES. WHERE ONCE PEOPLE WOULD BE ABLE TO GO OUT FOR A DRINK OR TWO, LISTEN TO GOOD MUSIC, AND DANCE IT HAS NOW TURNED INTO A VENUE TO GATHER AT A BAR STOOL, EAT BUFFALO WINGS, BET ON SPORTS, DRINK VERY EXPENSIVE ALES. THIS IS EQUALLY AS BAD AS REPLACING GOOD MOVIES, TV SHOWS, TALENTED WRITERS, MUSICIANS AND ACTORS WITH THE AVERAGE JOE IDIOT WHO HAS NO TALENT, BUT WHO IS RIDING THE "WAVE" OF "REALITY TV SHOWS". REALITY PEOPLE WILL HAVE NO LASTING EFFECT ON THE PUBLIC. TO HAVE A LASTING EFFECT ONE MUST BE TALENTED TO THE POINT WHERE THAT TALENT IS "MEMORABLE" MEANING 20, 30, EVEN 60 YEARS PAST WHEN MOST OF US WILL BE LONG GONE. THE MORONIC, IMMATURE MOVIE SCRIPTS THAT COME OUT OF HOLLYWOOD NOW STARRING 40 SOMETHINGS PLAYINGS 20 SOMETHINGS ARE NOT ONLY INSULTING TO ONE'S MIND, THEY ARE AN INSULT TO THE INTEGRITY OF ALL THE GREAT HOLLYWOOD WRITERS, DIRECTORS AND ACTORS OF WHOM "CLASSICS" WERE MADE FROM. WE NEED CONCERTS, LIVE MUSIC,TO APPRECIATE AND CULTIVATE MUSICAL TALENT AS MUSIC IS THE FORUM THAT SPEAKS TO OUR MINDS, HEARTS, SOULS. IF WE ONLY LISTEN TO THE "CLASSICS" EMINATING FROM A BOX AT A SPORTS BAR, HOW WILL TALENTED MUSICIANS WANT TO WRITE, SING, PERFORM AND RECORD FUTURE MUSIC "CLASSICS" FOR GENERATIONS NOT YET BORN?
