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.

A Plainview attorney is being disbarred after pleading guilty to stealing thousands of dollars from clients, according to the Nassau County district attorney’s office.

Matthew Kogan, 40, repaid the full amount to victims as a result of prosecution for stealing client funds to pay off personal and professional expenses. Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice recently announced that Kogan will no longer be able to practice law after stealing client funds instead of depositing the funds into his escrow account.  

Thousands of Long Islanders streamed into Burn Park in Massapequa recently for the Town of Oyster Bay’s annual Salute to America concert featuring Dean Karahalis and the Concert Pop Orchestra with fireworks by Grucci.

The event paid tribute to veterans, past and present, and honored three deserving honorees: Guillermo Torres, Plainview’s Robert Reahl and Barbara Tortorice.

Torres is the winner of the Town’s Veteran Lifetime Achievement Award. A Vietnam veteran and Purple Heart recipient, Torres was wounded while on maneuvers.
