Long Island Food News: The Greene Turtle Sports Bar To Open In East Meadow
The Greene Turtle, a Maryland based sports bar and restaurant that opened in Franklin Square not too long ago is taking over the space that was formerly occupied by the long-standing Hooters in East Meadow. This new location will fit in perfectly with both the residential community and the nearby Hofstra University students (especially those that are of age to enjoy their Mug Club).
Beyond the usual offerings of a sports bar (sandwiches, burgers, wings, beer, etc.), The Greene Turtle offers something unique; The Mug Club, as noted above. You can purchase a mug that is kept behind the bar and numbered so that only you can drink from it. For the almost $50 that you spend for the mug you are treated to discounts on beer during Happy Hour and also during the regular hours on select drinks. If you’re going to visit on a semi-regular basis, this may make sense.
Construction and planning are underway at this time and it won’t be long before this former wings spot turns into the newer, better incarnation. Maybe something a little more family-friendly as well. We’ll certainly drink to that.
