Mysteries surround the newly opened Zigmund’s bar on the Sag-Bridge Turnpike like compost at the base of a fruit tree. Here’s what we know based on in-person reporting by Edible. Yes, it is open 7 days a week. Happy hour is every day from 5-7 p.m ($5 beers, wine and lamb chops). Yes, lamb chops (lollypop-size) and octopus are important parts of the menu. So is yogurt and peaches, a nod to co-owner Eric Lemonides’s Greek heritage. They are spinning “retro sounds” on Saturday nights. And, finally, and perhaps most importantly, there is karoake every Tuesday night at 9 p.m.
What else do we know about this old, masterfully restored building that has seen the cooking chops of Todd Jacobs in recent years and was rebooted in the 2000s by writer Bruce Buschel as South Fork Kitchen? Decades ago, scores of locals will remember this spot as the Wild Rose, a place where farmworkers, artists, derelict coeds and live-music loving residents went to eat, drink and be merry.
As they say in the old country, mazel tov. We hope to see you there.
Did someone say apres beach? Cake by the ocean!
Leos, welcome! Zigmund’s celebrates its first August birthday. Bring the whole gang.

And, yes, there is Karaoke. Apparently, also some rare sightings of the rare art of Scary-oke. Let’s just say, if you have to ask, you don’t know.
