Bud’s Ale House in East Farmingdale served its last Bud this past weekend. The sports bar and grill barely lasted four months in the former digs of a Hooters restaurant.

Having eaten there just last week, I can only say that I’m hoping for something better --  lots better -- to take up residence in the capacious space. The Route 110 industrial corridor has long been short on great casual dining options.
