Coney Island 8 May Return This Summer; Brunch at Benoit

CONEY ISLANDAmusing the Zillions hears that the eight evicted Coney Island businesses ("The Coney Island 8") are now being offered leases by the Zamperla amusement company that would keep them on the boardwalk this summer. Both sides have a court date tomorrow to discuss the deal, although they predict that it will be postponed. The word is that the businesses will not have to pay any more than they did last year, but that the leases will include confidentiality clauses, and will only keep the bars, restaurants and attractions there till November 1.
