Here is some video that Scott put together from happenings that we have captured on our security system. Some are hard to see because of the conversions, but still very cool to watch and also good to know that the Ghosts of Katies still love to let them selves be known!!!

Charlie Sighting Today At Katies!!!

Charlie the Ghost was seen at Katies today!!!

Katies webmaster Jimmy Goose was leaving Katies after meeting with Brian about changes to the site. Jimmy got in his car and in his rear view mirror was a reflection of a man sitting in the back seat of his car in a suit , then he disappeared.

This is not the first time this has happened, but its a first for Jimmy who had chills after the experience. Other patrons of Katies have reported simular experiences and sometimes it seems charlie brings friends with him, It looks like they like car rides and I wonder if they have ever jump on the back of my bike, now that would be very cool!!!

A message to the local press

Dear Members of the local press

We at Katies of Smithtown are holding a event marking the 100 year old fire that destroyed the Trainor Hotel which once stood on the spot that Katies now stands.

We are asking for the for help in attaining any Photos or information on the Trainor Hotel, we know through old newspapers that it burned down on Dec 5th 1909 , but we know little else. Maybe some of your readers have something useful to help us in our search.

Many people think that possible  un-timely deaths from the fire may have something to do with much of the paranormal activity in Katies bar. Joining us for this event will be A&E`s celebrity Psychic Chip Coffey, Also many of Long Islands Paranormal groups and experts will be attending this event as well.  The paranormal activity has been very active over the past few months, We have even captured on video flying or tossed glasses from the racks, which is something that the bar is famous for , I would be happy to show you these videos.

We have found with the help of the Smithtown Library and the Smithtowns Clerks Office a copy of Charlie Kliens death certificate and the old newspaper story about how and why he killed himself. It was amazing to see that the documents backed up the local legend and stories about Katies favorite ghost Charlie.

I hope that you find these stories and legends as interesting as the staff , customers and fans of Katies worldwide. After some bumpy roads for Katies its seems that the bar has finally come into its own,

Maybe with the help of some spirits that seem to enjoy the attention

That they get, Katies will continue to grow.

Thank you,

Brian Karppinen

What’s Happening at Katies.

 

Also in the talking stage is a event With Kristyn G , She is a case manager from Taps and she may do a event at Katies with Psychic Tiffany Johnson and who knows who else they may bring? But these are great people to work with and they put on awesome events across the country. Stay tuned for the lineup it should be very exciting!!!

I recieved a text from Ryan Buell saying that it looks like the cast of Paranormal State will be returning in the Spring of 2010, In what capacity I am still not sure of, if its is a field trip or a filming, But Ryan told me he will have more info for me in the fall of this year.

Psychic Karin will be back doing readings at Katies on a regular basis, Karin is one of the people that helped put Katies on the map and was instumental in getting us on TV.
We are very happy to have her back!

We are planning a huge Paranormal party for the 100 year aniversary party for the Hotel Fire that happened at the Trynor Hotel which once stood on the same plot of land the Katies is on. The hotel burned down at midnight Dec 5th 1909 We are doing a ton of research as to who may have passed away in the fire and if one of the darker spirits in the lower level of Katies could be from that fatefull fire. It should be a really active Paranormal party!!!  Look for some great Paranormal big shots to attend!!! 

We are also looking to do more Paranormal events with some local groups , Investagations and sleep overs, More info on that very soon.

Before you know it, It will be time for Katies famous 8th annual Pimp n Ho Halloween party!!!
