Johnny Longhots is my charismatic Uncle John from Brooklyn who always has a good joke or an over exaggerated story to tell about the neighborhood.
Growing up in Brooklyn, much like in South Philly, you were often known by a nickname. Uncle John is known as "Johnny Longhots.”
The name “Johnny” is not for the obvious – It’s for being able to “handle” his Johnnie Walker Red. The “Longhots” comes from his love of Italian Long Hot Peppers, which he puts on almost everything – He always says…
“ ‘Cause everything’s better with Long Hots! ”
So as inspired by my Uncle John, I welcome you and your family to where New York meets Philadelphia, here at Johnny Longhots!
