Here’s a look at some of the top business stories in the region this week.
From Three Village:
As construction is under way at the Coventry Commons shopping center in Stony Brook, one of the aging buildings, which formerly housed a bank, has been demolished. A permit posted on the door of the adjacent building, which used to be home to J&R's Steakhouse, shows the Town of Brookhaven issued a permit for its demolition on July 26.
From Hauppauge:A 'Blend' of Food and Fun
It’s all about relaxed fun at Blend Wine and Tapas in Hauppauge, which has made its outdoor patio a local entertainment destination.
Every Thursday through Saturday, and sometimes Sunday, musicians play live music for guests at Blend on the outdoor patio, which features a large, fully stocked bar and tables. The atmosphere carries a more relaxed feel than Pace’s Steakhouse, and lends itself to being a place where residents go to unwind on the weekend.
From Sayville-Bayport:Sayville Residents Not Thrilled With New Bank’s Look

Sayville-Bayport Patch reader Heidi Nemith calls its “ugly and mundane,” and lacking character.
The Ronkonkoma-based broadcasting company known for owning Party 105 and Mycountry 96.1 will be renovating a Waverly Avenue eyesore into its new headquarters.
