25 Things You Don’t Understand About Long Island (Unless You’re From There)

 

 

 

 

 

” Long Island is easily one of the most misunderstood of all islands, especially the longer ones. And whether or not they’ve actually been there, every New Yorker has feelings about it. Strong feelings. The rumors are abundant — everyone is on steroids, Bob Costas was born fully formed in a lab in Commack — and sometimes even true.

  But the time has come for everyone to know the real deal. Laid out below are 25 things that will bring the soon-to-be-former home of the greatest NHL franchise of the early 1980s into significantly clearer focus.

1. You can buy beer anywhere that sells anything
Except, quite oddly, at liquor stores.

2. We didn’t all play lacrosse growing up
But we do all own lacrosse shorts.

3. Fire Island isn’t just full of naked people
It is full of Rocket Fuel, though.

4. Suffolk County and Nassau County are two very, very different places
And everyone knows Suffolk is so much better. RIGHT?!? #countyfight

5. Our pizza (especially slice joints) and bagels are consistently better and more plentiful than those in the city
Don’t even get us started on the pizza bagels!!!

6. And one fine example named Little Vincent’s puts cold cheese on top of the not-cold cheese
It’s very insane, and very perfect. Also there’re about three fights a night in that place.

7. We all love Billy Joel completely un-ironically
Even though he’s crashed his car into the front of most of our houses.

8. Half of the island had to go into therapy after having their area code changed from 516 to 631 in 1999
Many still consider 631 a grave mark of shame.

9. North Shore beaches basically suck; South Shore beaches are like real beaches, with sand and waves
And also guys walking up and down with a cooler, shouting, “Fudgie Wudgie bars!!!”.

10. All of those beaches are fantastic for drinking on, even though you’re not supposed to
Especially at night.”

“PIZZA DOUGH

1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 cup warm water
3 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons kosher salt

Stir together yeast and water until dissolved.

Stir the ingredients together in a large bowl until combined, then transfer the dough to a flourless work surface. Knead the dough until it becomes elastic and pulls off the work surface.

Oil the bowl, then shape the dough into a ball and place it back in the bowl, turning to coat.

Cover the bowl with a towel and let rest at room temperature until it doubles in size, about 1 hour in a warm room.”

 

 

 

Junk Food Jewels

The 9 Most Expensive Junk Foods

 

Pizza – $1,000

” The country’s most expensive pizza can be found at Nino’s Bellissima Pizza in Manhattan. A mere 12 inches in diameter, it’s topped with crème fraiche, Maine lobster tail, $820 worth of caviar (six different kinds, including Beluga and a Black Russian Royal Sevruga), chives and wasabi paste. Just a small one-eighth slice will set you back $125. Owner Nino Selimaj says he’s received hundreds of orders since the pie’s debut in 2007, and that it’s “worth every penny.” We’ll take his word on that.”

 

 

Gotta Have Dessert To Go With Your Pizza 

 

 

 

Ice Cream Sundae – $1,000

” Treating a date to an ice cream sundae could get a little pricey if it’s at Serendipity 3 in New York City. Its “Golden Opulence” dessert comes with three scoops of Tahitian vanilla ice cream made with Madagascar vanilla beans and chunks of Venezuelan Chuao chocolate. It’s then drizzled with melted chocolate from Amedei Porcelana, and topped with candied fruits, gold-covered almonds, chocolate truffles, marzipan cherries, and… Grande Passion caviar (on. ice. cream). The garnish, however— a 23-carat edible gold leaf—is really what puts the dessert over the top. And it’s all served in a Baccarat crystal goblet (yours to take home) with an 18-carat gold spoon (which, unfortunately, will cost you extra).”

Sample of simple pizza nutrition sign.

 

 

” New Obamacare regulations targeting the fast food and grocery store market that require signs detailing calorie and nutritional information on every product will force pizza makers like Domino’s to post up to 34 million different signs in every store: One for every possible pizza order.

“It’s not like a Big Mac. Pizza is customizable, there are options to factor in,” said Jenny Fouracre-Petko, legislative director for Domino’s and a member of the trade group American Pizza Community. “There are 34 million pizza combinations. We’ve done the math.” “
