Well the Dolphins have a new logo and everyone kept asking us if we were going to update our…. well the answer is yes and here it is! It was designed by infamous comic book/skate board/heavy metal illustrator James “Barf” Callahan. He designed our last logo and I had to hit him up again. I have been fortunate to have known Barf for over a decade and I knew he could take the Dolphins new logo and make it our own. We stuck with the old Dolfans NYC sun, but since the helmet was gone the NY was no longer an option. I asked Barf to do something to make our logo stand out and he came up with the water dripping off the Dolphin. Personally I think it’s bad ass. It makes our logo stand out from the Dolphins version and his scowl makes him look a little more “New York”.
I hope you guys like the logo as much as we do and we will have new t-shirts on sale at Slattery’s Midtown Pub week one. New logo, new bar, new year. Let’s Go Dolphins!!
We areÂ incrediblyÂ saddened to hear of the closing of Third & Long, our home for the last four seasons. The manger Curtis and the Long brothers have been so awesome to us and helped us grow this club to what it is. We could not have done this without them. Curtis gave sound and the big TV to about ten of us in 2008 and our numbers have grown every year. Third and Long was in business for 22 years and they became a New York City landmark and we are so, so upset to see them go. So thank you Third & Long from all of us at Dolfans NYC.
As tragic as the closing of Third & Long is, this could be fate for our Dolphins club. We were starting to out grow the bar with standing room only every week and sometimes lines out the door. At Slattery’s we have a huge space upstairs all to ourselves. We have a giant projection screen, plenty of HD TV’s, fantastic sound, great food, free Wifi, a balcony and lots of seats. The bar staff has promised to wear Dolfans NYC shirts on game day and they are going to have some DolphinsÂ memorabiliaÂ upstairs year-round.
Slattery’s has an affiliation with the Rangers and Notre Dame but they don’t have a big turn out for NFL games until now. They are very happy to have us and are doing everything they can to make us happy. We are working out drink specials, our own Miami themed menu, free shots when the Dolphins win and discounts on food for Dolphins fans all year. They also areÂ committedÂ to help us raise money for charity which is an important part of what we do at Dolfans NYC. We couldn’t be happier with our new home… well unless they can talk Curtis into doing some bar tending shifts on game day.
Slattery’s is only a few blocks from Third & Long but it’s much moreÂ convenientÂ to major transit hubs. It’s easily walkable from Penn Station, Grand Central and Herald Square. As far as midtown goes you can’t really beat the location. I got there from my place in Brooklyn in about 25 minutes yesterday.
Also, to welcome us to the bar, any Miami Heat fans who want to watch game 7 at Slattery’s they are offering happy hour specials (including a free shot with your first beer) to anyone wearing Dolphins gear. We aren’t making a whole thing of it (Michelle and I can’t make it) but if anyone wants to get together and check out the bar it might be fun.
We really want to thank Justin and John Slattery for making us feel at home and going above and beyond to make this transition as easy as possible. And of course we want to thank Curtis and the Longs forÂ everythingÂ they did for us during our time at Third & Long.
The Dolphins have a new logo and we have a new bar. Welcome to the future of Dolphins football in NYC. Phins Up!
Itâ€™s time to start our planning for the Dolphins @ Jets game on December 1st. The sooner we get our ticket requests in, the better our chances of getting everyone together in the same section.
Right now we have several rows, all together, available to us in one of the 300 level endzone sections.
There are over 300 seats available right now and it would be AMAZING to fill all of them and really paint that section aqua and orange!!
GREAT NEWS â€“ This yearâ€™s ticket is cheaper than last yearâ€™s!Â This year the tickets cost $65 each.
In addition, since everyone loved the buses that we reserved last year, we will be offering that option again, as well as organizing a HUGE tailgate.Â The cost of the bus and tailgate will be $35 per person.
SOâ€¦.for $100 you get round trip bus transportation from Third & Long (Update:Â unfortunately due to Third & Long losing their lease we will be leaving from Slattery’s Midtown Pub, our new home.) to the stadium, food, beer, soda & water at the tailgate and a ticket to the game to sit with an entire section of Dolphins fans. Sounds pretty awesome to us!!
(If you only want a ticket to the game and NOT the bus/tailgate, thatâ€™s totally fine, just let us know. We also will be making the tailgate available by itself if you want to join without taking the bus.)
Hereâ€™s what we need to know from youâ€¦.
1.)Â Â Â Please EMAIL US at firstname.lastname@example.orgÂ and let us know how many tickets you would want â€“ pleaseÂ ONLYÂ email us if you are 100% certain that you want these tickets and can pay as soon as the payment is due to the ticket office. Michelle has to put down her credit card and itâ€™s a huge risk to pre-pay for a ticket request that ends up getting cancelled. So please be certain before requesting your tickets.
2.)Â Â Â Â Let us know if you want to be included on the list for bus transportation/tailgate. Pick up will be at Third and Long the morning of the game.
Once we have all of our requests in, we will coordinate with the ticket office to reserve the seats and get back to you regarding payment info.
Here’s a look back at last year’s amazing tailgate:
