9 Must Try Food Places on Long Island

When one goes away to college they never realize what they have until they leave. This especially hit hard for me when i moved from Long island to upstate New York. If there is one thing that I could have 24/7 in upstate New York is the food from Long island. This article is a dedication to the must try food places on Long Island. Warning; I may be a little biased since I live in Nassau County

1) All American - Massapequa, NY

If you have not tried this place, please stop what your doing and go try it out for yourself. All American is an old time classic. It has been open since 1963! The reason that I love this place so much is because its quick, cheap, and, most importantly, it's delicious! If there is one thing you have to try there, it's their milkshakes. They are thick and creamy, which goes super well with their greasy fries!!

2) Pitstop- Merrick, NY

This hidden treasure is located right on Sunrise Highway across from the Merrick Movie Theater. This food place was also featured on "Diner's, Drive In's and Dives". It's a cute little place. I can't say I can recommend anything in particular, but overall there food is so delicious. Its a must try!

3) Mac and Melt- Garden City, NY

If you love mac and cheese just as much as I do, you must try Mac and Melt. They have a variety of different mac and cheeses and well as cheesy sandwiches. When I went here, I tried the five cheese mac and cheese and afterwards I went to five cheese heaven. It was so delicious and not bad for the price of it. The best thing I love about this place is how you order your food and then they bring it to you !!

4) Frizzles- Commack, NY

Over the summer, I tried this cute little place with my friends. I personally got the mac and cheese sandwich, which was beyond amazing. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to try something new.

5) Cannon's Blackthorn- Rockville Center, NY

Located in village of Rockville Center, this bar/ restaurant is a must try! Most people go out on the weekends to this bar, but I most formally know it as a restaurant. Growing up in a half Irish home, my family has tried to find a good Irish place to eat. When you walk in it even has that Irish feel to it. They have really awesome cabbage egg rolls. Also this place is located conveniently off the LIRR.

6) Little Vincent's- Huntington, NY & Lake Ronkonkoma, NY

Stop what your doing and go get a slice of pizza from Little Vincent's. Its a classic on Long Island. You truly have no experienced Long Island correctly if you haven't been to Little Vincent's. Please go out and try their cold cheese slice. It's to die for !!

7) Sushi Time 560- Bethpage, NY

Being a sushi lover, it can be hard to find a good sushi place. I recommend going to this place starving because you will come out feeling extremely full. For all you can eat sushi, Sushi Time 560 is the place to go. I personally recommend trying their Filet Mignon Roll!

8) New Old Venice Inn- Baldwin, NY

Born and raised in Baldwin, I had to put this classic down on my list. This place is conveniently located on Merrick Road, right across the parking lot from the Baldwin Public Library. Known as NOVI for short, this place has amazing Italian food that you must try if you're ever in town. They have solid Italian classics. I am personally obsessed with the chicken parm so go try that!

9) American Waffle House- Seaford, NY

Yet another restaurant located on Merrick Road, this place is somewhere you need to put on your bucket list if you have not gone. It is a cute little place with the most amazing food (specifically their waffles).

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
