Howard Beach, NY, December 7, 2011 – Russo’s on the Bay, an iconic landmark in the borough of Queens, New York, announced today the launch of its new magazine Russo’s Modern Traditions.  The publication is aimed at embracing family values and traditions while promoting the advancement of contemporary customs and practices. 

As the workplace, technology, and society continuously progress, traditional familial notions and occasions are constantly evolving.  In today’s world, it is essential to grasp what separates us from our families and loved ones, acknowledge the challenge, and revitalize what’s important to us.

Frank Russo, Jr., a devoted father and husband to his family, as well as dedicated visionary and founder of Russo’s on the Bay, is the Magazine Publisher.   “Russo’s Modern Traditions is all about the passion that brings us together – a passion for a better life, more quality time with the people we love, and events that create legacies within our own families,” says Frank Russo, Jr. “Knowing our world is different now with technology, busy lives and going our separate ways, our goal is to give the reader tools, information and support to bring each of you closer to your own spouse, children and relatives so that we don’t lose sight of our family values.”

The magazine kicks off as Russo’s on the Bay celebrates its 25th year anniversary.  The 25th Anniversary Celebration will continue throughout the next twelve months.  The celebration will include the launch of a loyalty and referral program for customers, several community programs, an exclusive cocktail party event for new brides, and several surprise announcements.  The publication is a gift to Russo’s loyal patrons and dedicated local community.  Russo’s Modern Traditions looks forward to engaging the community as well as expanding its audience to benefit the lives of others on a national level. 

Stories in the magazine will highlight various topics including – creating and planning personalized unforgettable events; alleviating the pressure of weddings and other special occasions; cultural and corporate traditions and innovations; exciting local happenings; and special culinary expertise.   Russo’s Modern Traditions will dedicate a segment to highlight individuals and groups such as non-profit organizations and charities – those who create modern traditions by supporting a cause that affects the lives of others; face adversity, and overcome seemingly impossible obstacles.

The magazine will not only offer insightful viewpoints and information, but also initiate dialogue, offering expert commentaries and fresh perspectives from clientele and staff of Russo’s on the Bay.  Although life can sometimes get the best of us, creating long-lasting memories is the ultimate goal Russo’s Modern Traditions would like to achieve for its readers.  Honoring family values and traditions will permeate through every issue and bring those you care about closer together.  Russo’s Modern Traditions will be available online and distributed in local newsstands bimonthly.
