Creative Ice Cream That’s Ahead of the Curve
I got a happy surprise yesterday at Sundaes – I enjoyed a custom-built Acai Bowl. By choosing from the wide variety of the mix-ins offered by owner Erin Tortora, I tailored the dessert to my personal sugar and grain free needs. I savored it. Sundaes in Port Jefferson Station is located near PJ Cinemas, on Route 112. They have been serving up the latest and greatest ice cream for the last six years. From Edible Cookie Dough to the extremely low calorie Only 8, both Erin’s creations, Sundaes works to stay on top of trends in ice cream & desserts.
“I was going into the movie theater with my kids one day and saw a ‘this site available’ sign on the store front of what was then ‘Swirls & Twirls’. I thought, ‘I can do this’. I felt then as I do now, there is always a demand for ice cream shops,’ said Erin.
Sundaes is a cool business. They participate with all scout troops and is a source of education, offering a Girl Scout patch after troops tour the ins and outs of the business. It is a great spot for birthday parties for five to 50 people which are full of wholesome fun with games like hot potato, freeze dance, limbo, musical chairs and line dancing.
I suggest you pop into Sundaes in the Port Plaza for something super tasty and suited just for you. You can reach them at 631 509.4155.
Polar Express Success
What a huge success! Our Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Chamber of Commerce does it again! A series of four business to community events- culminated on Sunday Dec 16, 2018 with the final viewing of ‘The Polar Express’ movie nights, inside our antique chamber train car at the corner of NYS RTE 112 and 347- offered with all the trimmings including ‘I Believe’ jingle bells tied in ribbon like those in the film, – gifted to all children, plus Polar Express Movie poster-backdrop Portraits, as well as those with Santa who surprised children at the close of the film – photos which families access from our pjstchamber.com site. This and more all due to extraordinary organization skills of our chamber Vice President, Larry Ryan, manager of Port Jeff Bowl and support of Chamber directors.

Jenn at the Keep Pride Rally
Welcome Community friends,
We are gathered here today to keep PRIDE in Port Jefferson Station. We LOVE our Community! Our community has so many wonderful things to offer and the best local businesses around.
We can not let bad publicity of our local area lower our expectations of where we live, work, shop, and play! We as a community are better than that.
The local business in this area and shopping center are hurting. They need the support of the community! Even though some of you choose to not shop here any longer, these wonderful local businesses still donate their time, money, and goods to our schools, churches and other organizations that we belong to. Think about that!
The small business is the back bone in every community and when an area within is threatening their livelihood, we the community need to say that we will not let that happen. Let our Voices be heard and our Presence be known that this community will be here to support our local businesses, no matter what!
