Just the other day, my family went out to celebrate my brother’s birthday. We decided to check out Darryl Strawberry’s new restaurant, which is called Strawberry’s Sports Grill. It’s located on 42-15 235th street (next to the LIRR train station) in Douglaston, NY.

We had no trouble finding a parking spot, as they had a parking lot close by and offered valet parking. As we walked in the place, we were greeted by Mike Strawberry, who happens to be Darryl’s brother. He was very nice and even shook my hand. I was amazed by all the memorabilia and autographed items they had on the walls. Darryl’s old locker is even in the restaurant. The waiters and waitresses walked around the restaurant in Yankees (#39) and Mets (#19) t-shirts, which I thought was pretty cool.

Darryl has stated many times that he would be involved in the restaurant and he would pop in from time to time to mingle with the fans, and even surprise some people by serving them food. Apparently, he was at his restaurant the day before, but left for vacation when we went. No hard feelings, but hopefully I’ll get to meet him one day. Check out the Menu

Great food, good service and a really nice atmosphere for any sports fan. I’ll be back soon. Two Thumbs Up!

From Strawberry’s Website:

“Strawberry’s Sport Grill features a menu of high quality yet casual fare, including an extensive burger menu, mouth-watering steaks, house-smoked BBQ, fresh-colorful salads, and firey chicken wings. The Grill offers a full bar, including 16 draft lines and a wide selection of expertly crafted cocktails. Guests can cheer as they watch their favorite team on any of our 16 HDTVs.”

Yankees, Chinese noodle firm reach deal The New York Yankees have reached a four-year sponsorship agreement with a Chinese instant-noodle company. Uni-President Enterprises will get field-level signage between first base and the right-field foul pole. The Yankees say the company will also have a full-page ad in the team’s game program.”

The New York Post reports that Doc Gooden has abandoned his family.

We Hear from the New York Post: “That Strawberry’s Sports Grill opened on August 5th in Queens with more than $300,000 worth of game-used memorabilia, World Series trophies, signed photos and even Darryl Strawberry’s old locker from Shea Stadium, donated by such friends as Alex Rodriguez, Michael Jordan and Chuck Knoblauch.”

Ben Nicholson-Smith over at  MLB Trade Rumors wanted readers to imagine where Derek Jeter would end up if he didn’t sign with the New York Yankees. In my opinion, almost every team in Major League Baseball would want him. Of course some teams are already set with an all-star caliber shortstop (Hanley, Reyes, Furcal), but let’s not forget that Jeter has ranked at the top of his position for years. I don’t see why people want to even talk about the situation, considering he is a Yankee For Life. (more…)
