They were partying like it was 1978. That was the year the Post Office Café opened on West Main Street.

To celebrate,  Lessing’s Hospitality Group — which owns the location — threw a huge bash on Friday, Oct. 5.

There was beer by Blue Point Brewery, live music from Bobby Digital, and a surfboard raffle from Bunger Surf Shop.

Mark Lessing, executive vice president of Lessing’s Restaurant Group, was delighted to see the crowd partying.

“It is a fantastic and amazing feeling,” he told GreaterBabylon. “We have done a lot of great work over the years.”
