Open Mic - Page One Restaurant
November 07, 2013 - Glen Cove

The weekly open mic, one of the most popular on Long Island, typically attracts 10-12 performers, most playing guitar and singing original material. Host Tedeschi emphasizes, "You don't have to be a seasoned performer to showcase your work at the open mic. We definitely work at also making this venue a welcome place for those who are new at getting up in front of an audience. Having personally played at many open mics, I know how important it is to feel part of a welcoming atmosphere, especially for performers who show up for the first time and need to experience the feel of that kind of atmosphere. We also have any number of people who come in each week just to listen and be part of the scene." Co-owner and executive chef, Jeanine DiMenna, has created a special open mic bar menu, with all entrees priced at $5 and ranging from special salads to a burger with fries, fish and chips, sesame chicken and more.
