The restaurant at the historic Milleridge Inn in Jericho, Long Island, is closed after a late-night fire Tuesday destroyed the kitchen.
“The Rooster didn’t just walk off,” said Owen Smith the inn’s proprietor for the past 50 years. “You would have needed a van or a big back seat to get him out of here. He was a big bird.”
The Night of Laughter annual fundraiser will be held on April 12 at the Milleridge Inn in Jericho. All of the money raised will benefit the charity.
