There's no wake at Finnegan's.
The Huntington bar and restaurant starts celebrating its 100th birthday tomorrow, with a reunion of bartenders and the unveiling of the establishment's restored 34-year old mural.
It's the oldest continuously operating bar in town. During Prohibition, Finnegan's was a speakeasy. The mural features portraits of 140 regulars.
On Saturday, Wall Street will be closed from Gerard Street to Main Street in downtown Huntington for street-wide festivities, including performances by the U.S. Marine Corps Guard, bagpipers, Irish bands and local singers and dancers. General manager Tom Forte, at Finnegan's for 22 years, will be the master of ceremonies.
Finnegan's also will offer "100th summer specials" through Aug. 2, among them Yankee pot roast on Tuesday, corned beef and cabbage on Wednesday, and mussel pots with fries on Friday.
Finnegan's Resaurant & Tap Room, 5 Wall St., Huntington; 631-423-9696.
