Openings & Closings & Etc.


• The Flying Chicken has announced it will celebrate its fifth anniversary at 122 4th Street in Troy in a unique way. By going out of business. Owner Ian Michael Hunter says the operation has not shown long-term financial viability. He said he may retool and reopen elsewhere, but his Facebook posting doesn't sound like it. It says, in part, " ... hold off on the tears and come help us put the fun in funeral!"


• The Social House sports bar inside Via Entertainment in the ViaPort Rotterdam (formerly Rotterdam Square Mall) shopping complex is temporarily closed. Via Entertainment announced Thursday on its Facebook page hat the Social House "will be CLOSED for renovation" and will resume in August "with a fresh new look, brand new menu and more!" The 4,000-square foot facility opened last year as a joint venture between Chris Marotta of Marotta's Pizza in Albany and Will Phan of LAX Restaurant & Lounge in Albany.


• Farmstead Flatbread, located in the former Sutton's Marketplace at 1066 Route 9, Queensbury, was briefly closed Thursday by the state Department of Taxation & Finance because of what it says was an unpaid $62,405 unpaid tax bill. However, roughly an hour later it reopened despite having been papered with the state state's familiar orange "seized" posters which were taken down by mid-afternoon. A check with the business today confirmed it remains open for lunch and dinner service from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Phone: (518)741-6911.
