Finnbar's Pub 'punked' on Facebook, but still going strong

Finnbar's main entrance
A presently unknown person -- one hopes he or she will be found out -- apparently created a phony Facebook page that declared Finnbar's Pub in Troy was permanently closed.

Proprietor Sean Patrick Costello, who owns Finnbar's with wife Megan, explains that although the problem has been rectified by a Facebook staffer, "in the last few weeks [we] have had to countlessly correct customers that came in and were worried their favorite spot was closed. Not true. ... not true ... not true. The Pub is not going anywhere. All your favorite scratch cooked favorites, wings, burgers, and award winning fish and chips are here to stay."

Finnbar's, which opened in July 2012 as successor to the long-running Holmes & Watson pub, is located downtown at 452 Broadway, next to the main U.S. Post Office. Hours: Monday-Thursday noon to 11 p.m., Friday-Saturday noon to midnight. Phone: (518) 326-3994. You can access its real Facebook page here, or go to its website here.
