"Bull Riding on Freeport's" Nautical Mile"
by Dorianna Valerio | July 30, 2013
South Beach meets Texas on Tuesday nights in Freeport -- that's when Tropix Bar and Restaurant rolls out the star of its weekly country theme night this summer: a jerking mechanical bull. "It's really fun -- I lasted maybe five seconds," says Sarah Gochez, 22, of Freeport, there last Tuesday for the second time this summer with a couple of friends. On that night, more than two dozen people, some in cowboy garb, trickle over to try their hand on the bull, which has inflatable horns and a leather saddle.
The western-themed event isn't at all what you'd expect to find at this Nautical Mile bar and restaurant, which has outdoor seating amid palm trees and tropical drinks aplenty. The bull lends an "authentic southern feel," says Kevin Inkles, one of the managers. Jason Rodriguez of Hempstead hops on and holds on tightly to a small tug-rope on the bull's back. After a few rotations, the bull hurls forward, sending Rodriguez tumbling down onto the inflatable pit.
"You have to hold on and have strong leg muscles," Rodriguez, 25, says with a smile. As the night grows darker, a DJ spinning country music draws a crowd of line dancers to the outdoor stage to practice under the watch of an instructor. Still, the mechanical bull is clearly the main attraction. While groups of friends encourage each other to try the bull just for fun, others are out for bragging rights.
"I wanted the challenge of staying on the bull the longest," says Patti Morris, 45, of Freeport. The night's early top record is a 41-second ride. Morris climbs on top of the bull and within seconds, it's tilting and dipping at high speeds. She nearly topples over a few times, but manages to straighten back up. Before long, the bull tosses her into the pit. Says Morris, "I only lasted 40 seconds."
"DId you know you can rent a mechanical bull for a party in the Hamptons?"
by David Rattiner | May 3, 2013
I thought I’d seen every party amenity known to man in the Hamptons, but here’s a new one that sounds like a good time. A service on the East End is now offering mechanical bull rentals for parties and it sounds hilarious.
I always thought mechanical bulls only existed in the South. Embarrassingly, I’ve never even seen one in person! But now that I know about this company called americanbullrentals.com, I’m dying to throw a party. The company can even rent to nightclubs and restaurants out here.
Can you imagine the East Hampton or Southampton supervisor on one of these things? Or perhaps a fancy Hamptons fundraiser having a mechanical bull?
Check out americanbullrentals.com, they are making a push for the East End.
