Wings are the thing at Hurricane Grill and Wings. The family-friendly franchise recently opened its third Nassau County restaurant in Garden City on Stewart Avenue. A special ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring an appearance by Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was held that included daylong festivities.
The spot for the location has been discussed since last October 2012, according to one of the four owners and managing partner Bob Engel, who also owns the restaurant’s Syosset location.
“It’s an outstanding spot outside of the mall,” says Engel. “We love the spot, it gives us our own identity here in Nassau County and there’s lots of parking, which is really important for a restaurant.”
“It’s like our own little island here,” added fellow owner Dean George.
While the doors opened on the first day of July, the real party on this culinary oasis went down a week later when the festivities, which were planned by marketing manager Danielle Dellilo, took place at the restaurant.
“It’s been great,” says Dellilo, in regard to the chain’s first week of business at the new location. “The holiday week was a little slow but there is a big buzz going around because we’re here.”

It was announced at the August Stewart Manor Board of Trustees meeting that the Elmont Memorial Library recently reneged on a deal to place a library drop-box in Stewart Manor Village Hall. The box would have allowed the Village’s elderly residents a more convenient option for returning books. According to the Board, the deal was all but done before the library backed out at the last minute.
“They offered us the world and we got crumbs. Rocks, really,” said Stewart Manor Mayor Gerard Tangredi.

Although a bit unsure at first, all Foofa needs is a little bit of love and patience to bring out his true affectionate self. A favorite with the handlers, Foofa is proving an excellent student with his training, loves long walks on the trail, and enjoys his “pampering” sessions with petting and brushing.
Just like the Mario character, this little guy will keep you smiling all day long. Yoshi happily greets all people he meets, gets along well with his fellow canines, and loves long walks and petting sessions. Yoshi would make a wonderful addition in just about any home.

The FLG 2018 girls have established themselves as one of FLG’s premier teams of the summer. Garden City’s Julia Kavan and Anna Mandaro at the midfield and Megan Sprotte and Ann Sullivan defensively led their team to three championships this summer. The girls “really started to gel and play as a unit,” said Coach McGinty, successfully executing new plays, transitioning well and crashing on defense. With the improvements across the board, the team hasn’t lost a game since the first tournament of the summer. These girls were leaders on and off the field and are taking FLG Girls Lacrosse to the next level.
