The BNL Social and Cultural Club endeavors to build closer community ties between Brookhaven National Laboratory and its neighbors. It promotes, supports and encourages activities for social interaction between BNL employees and the surrounding community through ethnic food parties, outdoor picnics and barbecues, field trips, karaoke sessions, and other social and cultural activities.

The Club holds weekly Open-To-The-Public dance socials (TGIFs @ Brookhaven) at the North Ballroom, Brookhaven Center, Brookhaven National Laboratory every Friday evening from 7 to 11:30 pm (dance lessons from 7:30 to 8:15 pm, different dance and different instructors each week). Social dancing follows after the lessons up to 11:30 pm.

(Note: When the Brookhaven Center is not available, we hold our TGIFs at the Estonian House, 20 Middle Island Blvd., Middle Island, NY 11953; email notifications will be sent out).
