One of the greatest modern myths and displays of the hero in modern folklore, as well as one of the greatest cinematic tales of all time, the Star Wars franchise aims to bring together their billion-plus fan-base to donate to Star Wars: Force for Change to support UNICEF’s Innovation Labs and other innovative work for children, and as an incentive contest participants can win a chance to be in the Star Wars Episode VII film!
J.J. Abrams posted a video on-set and explained how the good Samaritan can donate for $10 and potentially win prizes or the chance to actually go on-set in London, meet the cast and creators, and then be filmed, with a friend, in an actual scene for the movie.
This video has a really cool looking alien too!
Star Wars: Force for Change encourages would-be Jedi and Sith lords throughout the galaxy to help fund dozens of life-changing projects for kids, such as solar-powered learning kits that will help provide portable gadgets (maybe droids?) to give every child in the world access to quality learning.

Yesterday a new patron of Crazy Beans in Miller Place walked in, turned around 360 degrees while breathing in the aroma of fresh ground coffee bean, and joyously exclaimed: “there’s a real coffee shop on Long Island now?” and lo and behold, the Crazy Beans coffee house just upped the ante opening their second location in Stony Brook Village today!
Go on in, and drink in all of the intriguing CRAZINESS.
The “Crazy Specials” as owner Callie Brennan calls them are customized and unbelievably tasty foods thought up and cooked up daily for breakfast and lunch, like the “Gouda Morning” (2 eggs over-easy, with sausage and gouda cheese on 7-grain baquette).
The Beans is full of art, books, games, and awesomeness!
Much of the food is often insanely healthy too, including many gluten-free muffins and foods cooked fresh, and it is ALL delicious.
If you have had your fill of coffee (and I do not see how that is possible), get yourself a local microbrew, as their taste in beer offerings is also pristine.
The Beans, as I like to refer to it, is open in the early a.m. at 6 and serves food until about 3 p.m., though on Friday nights there is often live music and the kitchen re-opens from 6-9 p.m in Miller Place.
Open mic and diverse local bands are often performing phenomenal tunes on various nights amidst the pleasant patrons.

The prices are excellent and tend to do a lot better than the local Starbucks; the stark difference is that Crazy Beans actually makes the food fresh, in-house, and offers coffee with more of a scintillating experience for the taste-buds.
Now that there is a Stony Brook Village locale there is twice the fun.
The coffee, espresso, and other “crazy creations” consist of over a dozen various lattes, including a Harry Potter favorite, the butterscotch latte (iced or hot) that offers the muggle world its closest thing to a J.K. Rowling-invented butterbeer.
There are fruit smoothies, caramel apple pancakes, and much much more. The Stony Brook Crazy Beans has even added some expanded eating options as the foodie at heart has a reason to go back and forth between hangin' out in the Miller Place hot spot and the cool, brand-spankin’ new, daddy-o, Stony Brook village hot spot.
The coffee house has true charm and offers inspiration to the creative minds and the thirsty alike.
