Bracco’s Clam & Oyster Bar on Freeport’s Nautical Mile recently got its liquor license back after it appealed a suspension sparked by patrons throwing bottles at police officers following a 50 Cent concert, officials said.
As usual, the annual review of the Press’ most-clicked stories of the year looks nothing like the editors’ choices for top stories of the previous 12 months. Instead of big political and business news stories that affect many Long Islanders’ lives, readers instead flocked to articles about creepy clowns, serial killers and video games.
The New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) suspended the license of a Nautical Mile bar where Freeport village police officers were recently pelted with debris following a performance by rapper 50 Cent earlier this month. The ruling Tuesday by the three-member SLA board means that Bracco’s Clam and Oyster Bar on Woodcleft Avenue in Freeport may not serve alcohol and no booze can be consumed on the premises, effective immediately, the agency said. The suspension, which will be subject of a hearing, follows a string of other complaints and fines.
