It’s a record pop-up shop that also serves oysters and beer.
Little Creek Oyster Farm and Market is hosting “Vinyl Night” from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Thursdays this winter.
Here’s how it works: Dust off your favorite old (or contemporary!) records and bring them down to the Bootleg Alley shop. If you’re feeling brave, you’re free to put them on the turntable and introduce fellow customers to your tunes.
“It’s almost like karaoke,” said Little Creek co-owner Ian Wile. “When somebody gets the nerve, they get up and say, ‘Now we’ll hear this.'”
Last week featured everything from Miles Davis to A Tribe Called Quest’s newest album “We Got it From Here … Thank You 4 Your Service,” Wile said.
“It’s a play list you couldn’t put together if you tried,” he said.
But don’t worry — no one is waiting off left stage with a cane if the audience isn’t digging the music.
Vinyl is sold at the Greenport retro store The Times Vintage. Plus, records are very on trend right now. In the age of Spotify and Pandora, vinyl sales are at their highest since 1988, according to Fortune.com.
The event at Little Creek Oysters runs from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursdays at least through January. Enjoy $5 pints, a $12 platter of six oysters and a pint and other deals. Little Creek will be serving its famous clam chowder and board games like Scrabble and Connect Four are also available.
The event is free to attend.
Little Creek will continue to host its super popular “Wednesday Night Shuckers Club” — probably Long Island’s only U-shuck happy hour — from 5 to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays
Little Creek Oyster Farm and Market is located at 37 Front Street (turn down Bootleg Alley) in Greenport. Visit littlecreekoysters.com for more info.
