Southampton Targets Diner's 'Hispanic Night'

Frank and Maria Vlahadamis of a Hamptons Bay Diner have filed a $55 million federal lawsuit against the Town of Southampton and its police department, alleging they tried to stop the restaurant from holding Hispanic Nights.

When they found out about Hispanic Night, town officials sought to "prevent the plaintiffs from continuing to draw Hispanics into their restaurant, and punish them for doing so in the first instance," the suit said.
Juan Crow in Southampton? Did the Town act in violation of the rights of the restaurant owners and their Latino patrons? A federal court will now decide -- and that's a good thing!

BTW: The Hampton Bays Diner has a terrific Spanish Menu. Spread the word!
