Hooters Returns to Rte. 110 Stretch

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.

Oyster Bay Town officials are mulling an override of the state’s 2 percent property tax cap for the second consecutive fiscal year. On Aug. 12, the town held a hearing to approve local legislation, giving the Town Council authority to pierce the cap.

However, according to Marta Kane, a spokesperson with the Town of Oyster Bay, Supervisor John Venditto and the members of the Oyster Bay Town Council are not certain if they will entertain a repeat of last year, when the board adopted a $277 million budget, increasing the tax levy by $15,964,647 — or 8.8 percent.

Members and guests of North Shore Synagogue’s Brotherhood BBQ and Erev Shabbat Service enjoyed a wonderful summer’s evening in early July with a classic BBQ and services led by Brotherhood, with help from Rabbi Jaimee Shalhevet and Cantor Rich Pilatsky.   

“This is a wonderful way to connect with other members of Brotherhood, which focuses on building camaraderie among our members, and instilling a strong sense of community away from the hectic pressures of our day-to-day lives,” said  Brotherhood co-president Jeffrey Levine.
