Celebrating 10 Rowdy Years
Rowdy Hall celebrated 10 years of serving English style pub food and French bistro fair to locals and visitors alike on July 23. Owner Mark Smith threw a benefit for the Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy in honor of the anniversary; over $9,000 was raised. Founded in 1996, Rowdy Hall takes its name from a turn-of-the-century boarding house frequented by artists who visited East Hampton. The restaurant, which also offers a wide range of domestic and imported brews, is open year round, seven days a week. Rowdy Hall, 10 Main St., East Hampton, 324-8555.
