“Everyone’s waiting for these hot dogs,” said co-owner and longtime rock-and-roller Stevie Reno.
The original plan was to open this summer, but the state’s COVID-19 containment measures put a screeching halt to that.
“Now they’re building, finally, after a year and a half of trials and tribulations,” said Reno, who’s using Kerzner Contracting Corp. of Bohemia for the job. “And they’ve got a full crew in there,” he added.
Gauging interest in Rock City from social media and passersby, Reno says pent-up demand has only built during the pandemic, with people asking the same question constantly: When are you guys opening?
“It’s like crazy,” he told reporter Michael White. “It’s pent up. Everybody knows. Everybody’s excited. It’s Rock City Dogs, Mike!”
