Big Mac and a french fry Frosty

English muffins and tea, please. Where could I possibly be from?

Some Sounds from my Past: Ordering Food on Long Island

When I was a senior in high school I worked for a Pizzeria in Freeport, Long Island called Raimo’s. They had awesome food—in fact, they still do because a quick search suggests they’re still going strong—and it got so busy back in the late 80s (1989 to be exact) that…
