That’s because Alex Vergara, the general manager of Jonathan’s Ristorante (15 Wall St., Huntington 631-549-0055 www.jonathansristorante.com) and Rory Van Nostrand, general manager at Greenlawn’s Old Fields Restaurant (81 Broadway, Greenlawn 631-754-9868 www.oldfieldsgreenlawn.com) are competing to raise money during “Movember” in support of men’s health issues prostate and testicular cancer and mental health issues. They’ll be raising money for Huntington resident David Evans’ Movember team, called the “Huntington Networking Group,” by offering special prix-fixe “moustache menus” and drink specials, of which 10 percent will go to Movember. If you don’t order from the special menus, you can always donate to Rory or Alex in person, or visit their team website.
