Hall & Oates' Hoagie Nation returns to Festival Pier for its second year

Since it was Hoagie Nation, the iconic sandwich co-starred. There was a hoagie eating contest and Cosmi’s Deli’s stand was busy. The shop, which is based at 8th & Dickinson, sold well into the triple digits, with the Santa Fe Turkey fire-roasted peppers the most popular choice.

    Hall & Oates' Hoagie Nation returns to Festival Pier for its second year
    Daryl Hall and John Oates can't go through the motions. No can do. It would be easy for the septuagenarians to just play the familiar since one of the most pop duos in music history have a staggering 34 chart hits on the Billboard Hot 100.
