NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – For many children and parents of the 1990s, Friday nights meant one thing: An evening dedicated to TGIF TV.

Sitcom after sitcom directed at wholesome family entertainment, including gems like  Perfect Strangers, Full House, Dinosaurs, and Family Matters.

You remember Family Matters, right? A family comedy about a police officer, his wise cracking wife, doofy son, too cool daughter – and their awesomely dorky neighbor, Steve Urkel (played by Jaleel White).

Good news: You can relive those good times on Long Island this weekend.

White will be hosting the grand opening of a beer garden in Middle Island.

Yes, you read that correctly.  Steve Urkel and beer in one place.  The legendary dork now makes his living going to parties.

Something tells me the actor isn’t making anywhere near the $25,000 Snooki makes for her party appearances, but he probably has his pick nostalgic groupies to hit on.
