Rookie’s celebrates first anniversary

It has been a successful year for Rookie’s on the Lake and to celebrate, Rookie’s is throwing an anniversary party Saturday.

Rookie’s will open at noon with DJ Dynamic Sound performing at 2 p.m. There will be drink specials and giveaways and a steak dinner special. Black Widow will perform at 9 p.m.

Rookie’s Co-owner Rob Curry said he is looking forward to the event.

“We are really excited and we hope everybody has a good time,” he added.

Rookie’s other co-owner, Ang Zappie, said this year has been successful for Rookie’s in more ways than one.

“We have been open for one year. We have been successful with our business but also with our involvement in the community,” Zappie said.

He said in addition to donations to many charities, Rookie’s also sponsors several local softball teams, a volleyball league and several bowling teams, as well as working with the City of Dunkirk to sponsor a Music on the Pier concert and development of the harbor front.

Owners Ang and Deb Zappie and Rob and Tina Curry wanted to thank the community for its support over the past year.

Rookie’s, a Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce member, is located at 19 Lake Shore Drive, Dunkirk and is open seven days a week. Its kitchen is open every night and provides a tasty menu and daily specials.

Rookie’s hosts bands Fridays and Saturdays and Thursdays in the summer and offers seven TVs for watching sports games. Quick Draw is coming soon.
