Dry your eyes and pull up a giant barstool—Hooters is back in Farmingdale. The restaurant, known for its chicken wings and orange shorty shorts, reopened in July under new management. In the three months since then, Colin P. Parker, director of operations for Hooters of the New England and New York region has been working to restart business in Farmingdale and beyond.
“We knew the potential of the location, and are very pleased with how things are going,” Parker said. Between their aggressive beer pricing, famous wings, and even more famous Hooters Girls, he is confident Hooters will remain a steady presence in Farmingdale.
Great for a night out with friends, or a quick lunch out of the office, this location features pool tables, 40 draft lines, and all you can eat wing specials on Wednesday and Thursday nights.
The Farmingdale restaurant is doing so well under this new management, Hooters of New England/New York is reopening another location in Fresh Meadows, Queens in two weeks. After that, Parker’s goal is to open yet another Hooters in Westbury, Brooklyn. “We saw the historical sales were good, and now we’re making improvements to make them even better.”
Located just off of Route 110, Parker’s focus for the Farmingdale Hooters is to offer the best value to their customers and create a hospitable atmosphere. The “delightfully tacky, yet unrefined” restaurant is also becoming active in the community. This month, they were involved with the 12th Annual Veterans Home of Long Island Golf Classic.
Now that Hooters is open in Farmingdale again, you can stop worrying about where to buy your 128-ounce beer tank and start planning your night out.

One local playwright and his company — The Plainview Project — seem to be headed to the big leagues.
Claude Solnik of Plainview, the Plainview Project’s writer, is married with two children. While he has a master’s degree in dramatic writing from New York University, after graduating he ended up going into journalism, which currently remains his day job. But in his free time he indulged in his true passion, hammering out numerous play scripts until the day they he realized that he needed to stop sitting on these works he was creating and put them in the hands of actors that could give them life.

Even as they hoped the parties would reach a last-minute settlement, commuters across Long Island were scrambling last week to devise alternate plans for getting to work if Long Island Rail Road’s 5,400 workers go on strike July 20. And they were vocal in their anger with the Metropolitan Transit Authority. The strike, it seems, has roused commuter ire over a wide range of LIRR issues, from timeliness to cleanliness to costs.
“I’ll have to figure out a new way home from work,” said Marco Allicastro, a 20-year-old Queens resident waiting for a train home at the Bethpage station after a day’s work at the local King Kullen. “Long Island doesn’t really have a lot of options in terms of transportation. Maybe I should get a new job.”
