Monday Night Photos

October 2nd, 2013

On Monday we had a huge party at Slattery’s Midtown Pub! The Dolphins were playing great football for 28 minutes before it all went to hell right before the two minute warning, but such is life. It’s a long season and you aren’t going to win every game. Fortunately, even with the loss Dolfans NYC had a great time. We had one of our original founding members DJ Tropic spin during commercials and it worked out really well. Even late in the game we were at least enjoying the music, food and the company. People stuck around and even celebrated and sang the fight song on the garbage time TD. I also noticed a ton of rational positivity on our Facebook page. It’s great to be around Phins fans who aren’t screaming Fireland this and Tannehill sucks that. I really love this group.

Both floors of the bar were packed. It’s great to see so many people show up when the game is on TV. We have really made an event of it. We had a big raffle and sold t-shirts and ended up raising over $1200 for charity. It was really amazing. The two big prizes in the raffle were a Bob Griese signed hat and another hat signed by Tannehill, Hartline, Jimmy Wilson and Austin Spitler. Two cool things happened with that. Our member Bryan who had donated the Tannehill/Hartline hat actually won the Griese hat. It was great to see since not only has he been a big supporter of the club but he also lost 90% of his Dolphins memorabilia collection in Hurricane Sandy last year. The other cool thing was that Austin Spitler got resigned today so all four people who signed the hat are actually still on the Phins.

Anyway, I took a bunch of pictures, even after we were getting beat on pretty badly. I hope you guys dig them. If you want to save one just double click the gallery below and it will take you directly to our Flickr page. Phins up!

It’s A Monday Night Party!

September 29th, 2013

Tomorrow night the Dolphins get their first prime time football game of the year and we couldn’t be more excited! All the experts are picking the Saints to beat us but the Phins are looking to prove them wrong. Honestly, I don’t even think we mach up very well against the Saints, but after seeing Cleveland and Indianapolis win big today maybe the Dolphins are even better than I expected. A win tomorrow would be huge, but win or lose we are going to have a party in NYC!

This week at Slattery’s Midtown Pub we are having a pretty great event happening. Starting an hour before kick off have Dolfans NYC member  and party time DJ Tropic playing Miami hits during commercials and half time. Hopefully he will be playing our fight song all night long. We also have a big raffle happening with all the money going to charity. We are going to be giving away a hat signed by Bob Griese, another autographed item and at least three other Dolphins prizes. As always Dolphins fans get happy hour drink prices and our own menu for the game. It should be a lot of fun.

On top of that the Direct TV is finally up and running at Slattery’s so there shouldn’t be any TV problems from this moment forward. Everything will be in HD and looking awesome. I will be taking photos of everyone for the website AND we are getting a new batch of DolfansNYC T-shirts in so if we were out of your size last week or you haven’t had a chance to pick up a shirt yet we will have them for sale Monday.

The bar should be packed tomorrow so come out early and party with us all night long. I hope you guys are ready for some football!

Week One Pictures!

September 9th, 2013

Yesterday was amazing! We had so many people packed into our new home, Slattery’s Midtown Pub, that we took over both floors, not just the upstairs like planned. The only problem was the bar wasn’t quite prepared for the insane turnout so they were understaffed and it took forever to get food and drink. Fortunately, they know the deal now and will have plenty of staff on hand moving forward. The bar was amazed at the turnout and we are going to get all the kinks worked out and make this the best experience possible. All the problems aside, the day was so great and I know everyone had a fantastic time. So pumped moving forward.

Michelle and I are both out of town for work next week but Alex will still have the shirts to sell, and I am sure someone will take over for me as far as screaming like an insane person all day. But we will be back for the Falcons  game and we will plan something special for the Monday night Saints game!

Anyway, I took a bunch of photos at our meet up yesterday so check them out. If you want to save a photo or something just click the slideshow below and it will open in a new window!

Ready For Some Football?

September 5th, 2013

Dolfans NYC T-ShirtOh man! I am watching real football as we I type this. The Ravens have a first and goal against the Broncos in the first quarter and that’s a touchdown. Vontae Leach scored the first TD of the regular season. He could have been a Dolphin.  Anyway, the Dolphins play their first game this Sunday and I couldn’t be more excited. I don’t have much interest talking about the upcoming Browns game, there are a million sites you can read about that, but I wanted to talk about the upcoming Dolfans NYC watch party.

First of all I want to remind everyone that we are now watching games at Slattery’s Midtown Pub on 36th St between 5th Ave and Madison. If you haven’t heard, 3rd & Long closed it’s doors after 22 years in business. It’s amazingly depressing, but fortunately we found Slattery’s and Slattery’s is going to be a fantastic home base for Dolfans NYC.

Slattery’s is only a few blocks away from 3rd and Long but it’s a lot closer to both Grand Central Station and Penn Station. They are giving us happy hour drink prices and designed a menu with us in mind. Everything from your standards like wings and cheeseburgers to Miami favorites like a Cuban sandwich and menu items named after the Dolphins like the Ricky Williams veggie burger. On top of that free shots when the Dolphins win. It’s also a much bigger place with a lot more seats and a lot better sound. It’s going to be amazing.

A few other notes about the bar… There is street parking on Sundays and after 7pm so we should be good as far as that goes unless we get a Saturday playoff game. So let’s hope we have to deal with that problem. The bar is also ALL AGES so if you have kids who are Dolphins fans you are welcome to bring them, but be warned, it is impossible to get certain members (me) not to scream obscenities at the TV so be warned. Also, I wanted to mention that the bar is ONLY showing the Dolphins game upstairs. Downstairs they will be playing the local game but that’s it. We are going to try to get a Redzone TV upstairs but other than that it’s all Dolphins all the time. So if you bring a friend who’s expecting to watch another game, they might be disappointed. Other than that, this place is perfect, and honestly I don’t think I am going to miss non Phins fans hanging out at our bar…

With a new bar and a new logo comes new t-shirts. We got brand new Dolfans NYC t-shirts that will be available on game days starting with Sunday at Slattery’s. They are grey tri-blend shirts that are amazingly comfy and even come in women’s sizes. We spent a TON on these new shirts so the price is gonna go up to $20 but all the money goes to charity (and to making more Dolphins stuff). We got stickers, buttons and bracelets coming soon, and hopefully they will be here by Sunday but no promises. Lot’s of cool stuff this year.

Anyway this year should be amazing on the field and here at Dolfans NYC. Hope to see you guys at Slattery’s!

Mike Wallace Autograph Opportunity

August 31st, 2013

Mike Wallace

With cut day in full swing we know one football player who is not going to be cut by the Dolphins. Mike Wallace should change this team dramatically this year even when he’s not catching the ball. Our biggest free agent move should be pulling in touchdowns and freeing up space for our other receivers and running backs.

DolfansNYC has partnered up with Mike Wallace’s exclusive memorabilia dealer to give you a chance to preorder signed Wallace memorabilia in advance of his first autograph signing as a Dolphin. You can preorder stuff that will be shipped to you after he signs everything on September 21st. This is a great way to get some signed Dolphins gear that you know is going to be 100% authentic.

On top of that DolfansNYC gets a cut of every sale and that money will go directly to the DolfansNYC war chest which helps us do fun stuff at our bar and any money left over at the end of the year goes to charity. Last year we donated nearly $5000 to charity and we are hoping we can beat that last year so this Mike Wallace deal seems like a win-win.

So check out the site and get your signed Mike Wallace gear now! 

How Worried Should We Be About The Offensive Line?

July 31st, 2013

Mike PounceyAre you guys as terrified as I am about our offensive line? Mike Pouncey is one of the best linemen in the NFL and Richie Incognito is the man. I feel like Tyson Clabo will hold is own but the rest of the line frightens me. With the mediocre John Jerry injured the team seems to be in panic mode trying out a bunch of different linemen in different spots. Pouncey can play guard, he did in college, but why would you move one of the best centers in the world? Last years undrafted free agent Josh Samuda is getting a lot of reps all over the line and rookie G Dallas Thomas is seeing a lot of first team snaps. Lance Louis is gimpy and Nate Garner is a great versatile back up but I don’t want him starting any time soon. With all this interior line transition the tackles seem fixed and the most worrisome bit about all this is that Jonathan Martin is our starting left tackle. We are trusting the most important position on the line to a second year player who was absolutely horrible last year. He was playing out of position on the right side but when Jake Long got hurt he didn’t do much better on the left going up against better talent. I don’t need to quote statistics and Martin seems in better shape than last year, but every camp report talks about how dominant our defensive line is and how many sacks they are getting. You have to think that part of it is how terrible our offensive line is.

Jonathan Martin

During the scrimmage the defense beat the hell out of the offense, but we have a great defensive line so maybe that’s expected and we hope they will look better against other teams. Unfortunately the Hall of Fame Game won’t show us much because Dallas has a one of the best defensive lines in the league. (Speaking of lines if you are curious about how sportsbooks are considering these early match-ups may want to refer to NFL lines on the matter.) The second preseason game is when I really hope the line comes together. The Dolphins need to find a line up and stick to it and let the guys on the line gel. Other than a QB and his receivers the offensive line is the position where chemistry is most important. These guys need to know what it’s like playing next to each other and if Mike Pouncey ends up playing guard somehow none of the guys will have been next to each other last year.

As I type this Dion Jordan blew right past Jonathan Martin in practice and Twitter exploded with beat writers talking about how bad Martin is. I just really hope he can get it together and we don’t regret not resigning Jake Long or trading for a veteran offensive tackle.

Are you guys as worried as I am about the offensive line or is it way too early to panic. Let me know in the comments. And don’t forget our Hall of Fame Game meet up on Sunday!

Hall Of Fame Game Meet Up!

July 25th, 2013

2013 Hall Of Fame GameTraining camp has begun, football season is here and the Dolphins are lucky or unlucky enough to get 5 preseason games this year. The Dolphins and the Cowboys play each other in the Hall of Fame game this year. The HOF game is the first preseason game of the year and it takes place in Canton, Ohio during the Hall of Fame induction weekend. This year the game takes place on August 4th and Dolfans NYC is throwing a party.

As you probably know by now, Third and Long has closed and Dolfans NYC has a new bar. We introduced Slattery’s Midtown Pub as our new home a few weeks ago and we are so psyched to have them as a partner. We want to give everyone a chance to check out the new bar so we are going to do a meet up for the Hall of Fame game. This isn’t going to be a huge meet up like for a regular season game but we wanted people to see the new spot and help us get the word out about how cool the place is.

Slattery’s is going to be giving us discounted food and drink and we will be hopefully watching the game on their huge projection screen upstairs. On top of that the Dolphins sent us some shirts with the new logo on it and we will be giving out a few shirts somehow. Michelle isn’t going to make it until the second half so we probably won’t be doing a raffle, but I will find someway to hook the people who can make it out up. Should be a fun time.

I did a Facebook event invite and you can check out the details there and invite your friends. But for those too lazy to click a link the meet up is at Slattery’s Midtown Pub at 8pm on Sunday August 4th. See you guys there!


Introducing The New Dolfans NYC Logo

June 21st, 2013

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!!

New Dolfans NYC Logo!


The New Home For Dolfans NYC: Slattery’s Midtown Pub

June 19th, 2013
Slattery's Home Of Dolfans NYC!
Slattery’s Home Of Dolfans NYC!

We are incredibly 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.

But with Curtis’ help we found a new home just a few blocks from Third & Long. Dolfans NYC is moving to Slattery’s Midtown Pub on 36 St. between Madison and 5th Ave.

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 Dolphins memorabilia 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 are committed 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 more convenient 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 for everything 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!

Ready For The 2013 #MetLifeTakeover?

June 12th, 2013

It’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 – This year’s ticket is cheaper than last year’s! 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. The cost of the bus and tailgate will be $35 per person.

SO….for $100 you get round trip bus transportation from Third & Long (Update: 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, that’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.)

Here’s what we need to know from you….

1.)   Please EMAIL US at and let us know how many tickets you would want – please ONLY 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 it’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.)    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:

Thanks and FINS UP!
