"generalizing" implies there might be a shred of truth in this mess. I don't even see that. Do I really need to provide a LONG list of privately owned and successful eating establishments?
1. Based on the last election...DENIAL!!
2. My reaction was mostly silly. The overreacting is to the nasty responses.
3. If you think that list per capita will be impressive, I feel sorry.

OK, go compile a list, it should take all of 15 minutes. LI is known for it's abundance of gourmet dining, art galleries, music venues, sports, on and on.

You should change your quote to "We've got nothing."

of course I never said LI is full of art galleries, music venues, and whatever you mean by "sports"...but I think we established earlier in this thread you're having a hard time keeping track of things.

We get it...you're miserable. And now it's clear you're just looking to pick a fight.

I thought you were making a list? What happened?

I made a post saying Shake Shack was ho hum, in my opinion. The fight was all yours. So I'm miserable now? Is that your olive branch? You are a transparent, passive aggressive baiter. But you're above it all, of course. You only comment to enlighten. Cool.

I'm a happy man. I just think LI sucks donkeys. I'm here for my wife, not the location. She's so good, I put up with the likes of you.

Let's see if you can pay attention:
-you asserted LI is lacking in quality eateries
-I disagreed
-you respond by asking for a list of restaurants AND "art galleries, music venues, sports"

So I guess I "baited" you into a response that didn't make any sense? Are you sure it wasn't something on your end? lol....

Don't get me wrong, I love a good burger but there aren't any healthier chain/non-chain eateries that could open on LI like Chik-Fil-A?
On a side note I am hoping Cracker Barrel does come to LI.
Chik-Fil-A isn't open on Sundays, but would probably do well here anyway.

Crapper Barrel? eh
