Prost Grill & Garten opens in Garden City

MAKE A PUB CRAWL An 1888 fire shaped


An 1888 fire shaped the corner of Route 25A and New York Avenue in Huntington. That's one of the tidbits you'll learn during a historic walking tour of Huntington village, led by town historian Robert Hughes. Hughes also stops at three pubs -- often Canterbury Ales, Meehan's and Finnegan's -- that have historical significance and offer drink specials. Tours start at 6:30 p.m. Thursdays through August from 228 Main Street. Reservations required ($10, 631-427-7045, Credit: Handout
