Forget one day, Islip Town has been celebrating its birthday all year long.

After turning 335 years old on Nov. 29, 2018, the town has hosted several celebratory events, including a lighting ceremony at Town Hall in November.

Now, for the month of August, Islip Town announced it will be hosting a town-wide restaurant month, where participating eateries and bars will have discounted prices throughout August.

“Customers will find items priced at $16.83 or $3.35, which commemorate 1683, the year the Town received its first patent, or the Town’s birthday year, 335,” said an Islip spokesperson.
