It’s just going to have a feel that is needed now. That when we come to the end of the year and are looking back at it in reflection, that we do it with inspiration and hope. That’s my plan.” Melissa Etheridge will be appearing on Nov. 26 at The Paramount, 370 New York Ave., Huntington. For more information, visit www.theparamountny. com or call 631-673-7300.

November Movie Previews BY CHERYL WADSWORTH

t’s hard to believe that it’s November already, especially with the unseasonable weather. As we prepare for Thanksgiving, the theaters are releasing thrilling new movies for us to enjoy.

Thor: Ragnarok (PG-13) Currently playing, the much anticipated release of Thor: Ragnarok has been doing well in theatres. Directed by Taika Waititi, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum and Mark Ruffalo just to name a few. It is a direct sequel to Thor: The Dark World from 2013. Two years after Thor’s battle of Sokovia, he becomes imprisoned by a demon named Surtur. After his escape, he returns to Asgard to discover that his brother, Loki, has been impersonating their father, Odin. They end up working together to find Odin, who is dying. Upon his death, his first born daughter, Hela (played by Blanchett), will be released from her prison and take over. They team up with The Hulk and must defeat Hela before she destroys the Asgardian Civilization. A lot of humor and action in this one.

Daddy’s Home 2 (PG-13) Fresh off an opening weekend, Daddy’s Home 2 arrives just in time for the holidays. Directed by Sean Anders, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg reprise their roles as Brad and Dusty while they must deal with the Christmas holidays and their respective father’s arrivals played by John Lithgow and Mel Gibson.

Filipino Food Digs In BY STEVE MOSCO

SMOSCO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

A

sian cuisine—from regional Indian food to Chinese grub of varying authenticity—continues to explode in popularity across across Long Island. Suddenly, there is a new player on the menu, as cuisine from the Philippines is set to become the trendy new treat for island eaters. Yes, Filipino food will be the island’s next big culinary discovery— but before it becomes fashionable, let’s take a moment to bask in the freshness of the island’s original Filipino restaurants. Included on the list of trendsetters is East Meadow’s Kabayan Grill. This warm, welcoming, no frills establishment—situated in what was an old school-style Taco Bell—greets eaters with an intriguing display of prepared food on two steam tables. Everything from familiar bits of charred pork to more striking presentations of milkfish and other alluringly mysterious items are set up perfectly for the adventurous eater onthe-go that loves options. The eatery also includes sit-down service with rows of long tables, where a helpful staff gladly guides diners through the menu. As the enticing aroma indicates, pork is the protein of choice at Kabayan. The appetizer menu includes items like lumpiang Shanghai (mini pork egg rolls), chicharon bulaklak (deep-fried pork intestines), tokwa’t baboy (deep-fried tofu with braised pork ear) and inihaw na kilawing baboy (grilled pork belly with onions and peppers). Pork also shines in Kabayan’s most audibly pleasing dishes, sizzling sisig, a gorgeous medley of finely chopped pork jowl, ear and shoulder with hot pepper and lemon, served on a hot plate. The potpourri of pig parts pops and crackles as it comes to the table, upping the ante even before you take a bite. But the dish is more than merely sound and fury, as the varying pork morsels provide different textures and flavors—the jowl is silky smooth and smoky, while the ear brings a crispness and the shoulder manages a meaty unctuousness. Perhaps the best characteristic of Filipino cuisine is its ability to cross over with foods from other regions. The cuisine itself seems like the perfect combination of Spanish and Chinese. The barbecue chicken demonstrates this nicely, with Filipino-style chunks of marinated chicken impaled on skewers, for the always fun meat-on-stick

Sizzling sisig pork (top left), barbecue chicken (middle left), garlic rice (bottom left), veggie egg rolls (above) food delivery system. The chicken is richly flavored, with a deep almost pork-like reminiscence. Noodle dishes also dot the menu, with palabok (steamed rice noodles with shrimp sauce, crushed pork rinds, egg and crispy garlic) the most enticing. A definite must order side dish is the large garlic rice, good for three to four people, depending on the hunger level of your party. The no-frills nature of the garlic rice is its charm, as its preparation of oil, garlic, fried-to-a-crisp garlic and scallions offers a garlicky sense of comfort. Kabayan also opens for breakfast, with many of its dishes—including sisig—enhanced with the addition of eggs. And if you need to fill your pantry with Filipino goods, Kabayan boasts a small grocery with sauces, breads, noodles and other essential Filipino options. As for dessert, try halo halo, a famous Filipino dessert featuring shaved ice, evaporated milk jello, fruits, sweet beans and leche flan topped with rice krispies and a scoop of ice cream. Filipino cuisines begs for exploration with an open mind and Kabayan Grill is a superb place to begin marinating in an all-new food obsession. Kabayan Grill, 1634 Front St., East Meadow, 516500-9574, www.kabayannyc.com

“When NYU Winthrop’s TAVR team replaced my heart valve, they gave me my life back.”

For John Elliott, sailing is living. He’s been on the water for most of his 91 years. In all three theaters during World War 2, as a merchant seaman, and for the last 70 years sailing out of the Rockaway Point Yacht Club. But recently John was so fatigued and short of breath, he could only walk a few steps. His aortic valve was failing. A condition that could lead to heart failure, and death. His daughter, a nurse, told John about a minimally invasive valve replacement procedure called TAVR, or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement. She took him to one of the country’s leaders in TAVR: NYU Winthrop Hospital. They replaced John’s valve through an artery in his leg. In no time at all, he was back to sailing off Breezy Point. If you suffer from aortic stenosis, you may now be a candidate for TAVR.

Ski The Poconos

Discover winter fun within driving distance BY FRANK RIZZO FRIZZO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

ompared to the great ski places in New England—not to mention the ones out in the West—those in the Poconos might seem “vertically challenged,” and lack the sheer visual grandeur. But in comparison they offer an excellent variety of skiing and snowtubing/snowboarding experiences just a few hours away. The six we selected are within half an hour from Interstate 80, easily reachable from the George Washington Bridge. They all sell multi-day packages that will save money, and encourage buying lift tickets online. Most offer equipment rentals and lessons, and some provide night entertainment as part of a resort experience. Note that all have holiday or weekend rates in effect from Dec. 26, 2017 through Jan. 1, 2018, and during the Martin Luther King (Jan. 13-15, 2018) and Presidents Day (Feb. 17-24, 2018) holiday weekends or weeks.

Lace Up Your Skates BY JOSEPH CATRONE

JCATRONE@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

ould you rather be indoors, avoiding the winter cold or be indoors and still feel a little chilly? If you went with the second option, chances are you’re into ice skating and with the 2018 Winter Olympics taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea this February, you’re going to see quite a bit of blades on the ice. Admittedly, ice skating may not be for everyone, since there’s usually a good deal of falling involved for those who are new to it. Nonetheless, the thrill of finally circling the rink without having to clutch the wall or hold a stronger skater’s hand can feel very rewarding. Long Island has plenty of places that offer ice skating and other fun activities, so lace up and remember: if you fall, dust the ice off and get back up. It’s part of the fun.

Iceland

No, not the country; this one’s

much closer. Iceland, located at 3345 Hillside Ave. in New Hyde Park, offers group ice skating sessions for children and adults, as well as group or private lessons for skaters who are looking to improve. Iceland also has a house hockey league and is home to the oldest figure skating club on Long Island, the Metropolitan Figure Skating Club. For more information on sign-ups, visit www.icelandlong island.com. .............

Port Washington Skating Center

The Port Washington Skating Center is an excellent place to go for ice skating and hockey, but it also offers visitors the opportunity to rent the ice for up to an hour and a half. Ice rentals for work groups are a nice way for coworkers to bond and rentals can also be used for fundraisers, school reunions and hockey teams. The rink offers discounts for ice rentals later than 10:30

p.m. or for morning hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. Visit www.pwskating. com to find out more. .............

Town of Oyster Bay Ice Skating Rink

Located at 1001 Stewart Ave. in Bethpage, this rink balances a variety of skill levels, with programs designed to support beginners and more experienced skaters that are divided by age group rather than skating experience. Participants will have the opportunity to develop skills in figure skating or ice hockey. For those interested in more casual visits, the rink offers general admission skating throughout the winter. Call 516-433-7465 for further information. .............

Ice Works

Famous for being the official practice facility of the New York Islanders, Ice Works in Syosset is also a great place for beginners, particularly kids, to take skating

lessons. There is a youth program for 2- to 5-year-olds and a group program for ages 6 to adult. Skaters who already know the ropes can participate in freestyle classes in which they can develop figure skating routines. For information on how to sign up, visit www. islanders.ice.nhl.com. .............

Christopher Morley Park

Not all ice skating rinks are indoors. Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn offers an outdoor rink that is host to various local hockey teams and enjoyed by recreational skaters around Long Island. The rink, around since 1966, also allows for ice rental, private parties and group skating lessons. The skating season begins the Saturday following Thanksgiving and wraps up in March, weather permitting. Ice times vary by day.

Avoiding The Winter Chill BY JILL NOSSA JNOSSA@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

ith the chill in the air, the snow coming down and the lack of daylight, it can be very tempting to just curl up in front of the fire or television during the winter months. However, there are plenty of things to do on Long Island that don’t require gearing up and risking frostbite—and will also help keep you from going stir-crazy. And in fact, without the distractions of yard work, vacations and pool parties, winter could provide the perfect opportunity to learn a new skill and meet new people. Take A Class

Reading a book is an enjoyable activity all year round, and having a specific book to read and discuss with peers can make it that much more rewarding. Check your local library for weekly or monthly book discussions and visit www.meetup. com for possible topic-related book discussions, such as the Spiritual/ Self-Empowerment Book Club of Long Island that meets in Great Neck or the Books and Cabernet club based in Huntington.

This season is the ideal time to learn something new and perhaps connect with others who share the same interest. Most local libraries are a rich resource for workshops, knitting groups, musical entertainment, cooking tips, financial information and even yoga classes and are either free or require a minimal fee. Senior centers such as the Glen Cove Senior Center and the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay offer classes daily, either at no cost to members

For kids, What’s Cooking? in Oyster Bay regularly offers classes and workshops as well as camps during holiday breaks, providing an opportunity to get out of the house and learn while having fun.

or a minimal extra fee, and also offer Lifelong Learning Classes for those who want more in-depth information on certain topics. Hofstra University is another resource for seniors; the Personal Enrichment in Retirement (PEIR) Program at Hofstra is “designed for retired seniors seeking intellectual stimulation, cultural enrichment and personal growth in the context of a community of peers,” according to its website and PEIR “attracts a broad array of lifelong learners with diverse interests, talents and backgrounds.” Meetings are held monthly. Many school districts, including Glen Cove, North Shore and Farmingdale offer continuing education classes for the community for a nominal fee. Sur La Table in Manhasset offers cooking classes for adults on a regular basis, with themes that include a Ravioli Workshop, French Croissants 101, Sushi Party and various “Date

Bowling Bowling is always a fun activity, a way to stay social while also honing a skill. Get a group together and rent some lanes for a couple of hours of fun; there are bowling alleys all over Nassau County, including: Levittown Lanes, AMF Sheridan Lanes in Mineola, Herrill Lanes in New Hyde Park, AMF Garden City Lanes, Massapequa Bowl and Lounge, AMF East Meadow Lanes, AMF Syosset Lanes, Farmingdale Lanes and AMF Wantagh Lanes.

Play With The Kids Of course, there will be days when you’re trapped in the house due to an overabundance of snow or icy roads.

And if you have kids, curling up with a book is not always an option, so it’s important to have some kind of activity to do to stave off boredom (or insanity). While books, movies, Play-Doh, board games, Legos and coloring books are all necessary items to have on hand, working on a project together may help keep the interest level higher for all family members. One idea that parents and children can have fun making this winter is a Mason jar snow globe. The cool thing about these is they can be customized as personalized gifts or decorations for the home and each one is completely unique. All you need are Mason jars in any size, glitter, small figurines, toys or other items to place inside, small plastic snowflakes and a hot glue gun. Children will have fun designing the scene: use the lid of the jar to set the scene and glue each item in place. Add the sparkles, glitter and snowflakes to the jar and fill it up with water and glycerin, or keep it dry. Insert the inner lid and seal tightly. A simple winter scene can last all season or stock up on more jars to make special Valentine’s Day globes.

Merry Movies Binge-watch these Christmas classics to get in the holiday spirit BY CHERYL WADSWORTH EDITORIAL@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

W

inter brings many things. Cold weather, snow and shoveling, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah just to name a few. The days are busy with work, shopping, cooking and often a lot of stress. One way to combat all of that is to cozy up at home and watch a classic holiday movie that will be on television or pop in a DVD. The following are just a few suggestions to get in the spirit. Babes in Toyland or March of the Wooden Soldiers

(1934) An all-time favorite tradition of mine has been to watch this movie every Thanksgiving morning. It’s on every year and to me, it never gets old. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy star as the fumbling toymakers who live with the old lady in her shoe along with all of her children. When the evil Barnaby (Henry Brandon) threatens to evict them for nonpayment of rent, Laurel and Hardy attempt to come to her

rescue. Bo-Peep, Tom Tom, the three little pigs and of course the Boogie Man are just a few characters to get involved with the hijinks. A classic to introduce to your older children.

16A | WINTERTIME! • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

What would the holidays be without A Charlie Brown Christmas? Written by Charles M. Schulz, this animated holiday classic is for all ages. Who doesn’t love the story of Charlie Brown, a boy who just doesn’t seem to get a break, yet always holds out hope. After he expresses his displeasure with Christmas being only about the presents, he sets out to find the perfect Christmas tree for the holiday pageant. Naturally, his tree isn’t what Lucy and the others would have picked out but in the end they all come together and realize what the holiday is truly all about.

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

Another quintessential Christmas film, It’s A Wonderful Life, directed by Frank Capra has already began playing pretty regularly. This holiday classic will make

you laugh and cry but it is the ultimate feel good movie. James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore and Henry Travers bring to life the characters we have all grown to love. George Bailey always puts everyone first before realizing his dreams but it takes an innocent angel to show him that in reality he has everything he ever needed. I still can’t look during the scene in the bank when Uncle Billy loses the money and the unscrupulous Mr. Potter watches in secret knowing very well that he is in possession of the money. I don’t know about you, but every time I hear a bell tingle I believe an angel got his wings.

White Christmas

(1954) White Christmas stars Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen and is another classic featuring of course the all-time favorite Christmas song of the same name sung by the great Bing Crosby. Bing and Kaye play song and dance partners who team up with sisters to save the Vermont Inn of their former general from going under. The holidays aren’t the same

without seeing this movie at least once.

Miracle on 34th Street (1947)

Don’t waste your time on the remakes of this film as there can only be one with Natalie Wood. Miracle on 34th Street stars Maureen O’Hara, John Payne, Edmund Gwenn and Natalie Wood and it will make you feel good all over. Non-believer Doris Walker learns a valuable lesson about faith and love from, of all people, Kris Kringle. Wood portrays the skeptical Susan Walker brilliantly and we all share in her surprise as she pulls on Kris’s beard to realize that it is real. Other holiday classics include Home Alone, National Lampoon’s Christmas and A Christmas Story for starters. So cuddle up with a warm blanket, grab a snack and enjoy some nostalgia one afternoon or evening. You will be happy you did.

FOOD

The Right Stuffing From side dish to centerpiece BY STEVE MOSCO SMOSCO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

N

o one knows who the enterprising kitchen hack was that first shoved breadcrumbs inside of a turkey and called it “stuffing” on Thanksgiving, but chances are that cook was at least partially inspired by a chef from sometime between the second century B.C. and the first century A.D. It is from that time period that the earliest known cookbook was found, by a chef named Apicius. That book, Apicius de re Coquinaria, features recipes for stuffed chicken, rabbit, pig and dormouse, with the main ingredients being vegetables, herbs, nuts, chopped liver and brains, obviously. But times have changed—we no longer stuff dormice with brains to celebrate the winter solstice. In fact, most people don’t even stuff their birds on Thanksgiving, opting instead to cook their stuffing in a casserole dish on the side, which prompts people from the southern portion of the country to rename the dish, “dressing”—a truly confusing nomenclature once the salad hits the table. One word that comes to mind with stuffing is “comfort.” The mix of herbs with bread and veggies create an aromatic cloud that blankets the olfactory with a warming appeal. But as it is the chef that makes the rules in the kitchen, it is their prerogative if they wish to mess with that comforting formula. With the basic foundation of stuffing being bread and herbs mixed together, there is plenty of room for experimentation with a long list of traditional and not-so-traditional ingredients, if the cook is so inclined. With that in mind, here are four stuffing ideas for any adventurous chef looking to make their guests uncomfortable this holiday season.

white bread and an entire sleeve of saltine crackers—ingredients so familiar that it makes the sharp left turn to oysters all the more jarring. Yet, oyster stuffing remains a fond childhood memory for many eaters, particularly those from the south. —www.food network.com

Crescent Roll Stuffing

The Pillsbury Doughboy is a monstrous conglomeration of enriched bleached flour, water, sugar, oils and other ingredients mixed together to form a walking, talking, giggling freak of nature—who just so happens to go great with butter. Crescent roll stuffing takes one of the Doughboy’s most popular items and mixes it with sausage and all of the classic flavors of Thanksgiving. It is truly a high caloric sight to behold. —www.delish.com

Ed Koch Stuffing

Named after the legendary mayor of New York City, this stuffing includes store-bought everything bagels, cream cheese, red onion, capers and, of course, smoked salmon. A play on the classic cream cheese and lox bagels available on seemingly every corner of the city (and Long Island, for that matter), Ed Koch Stuffing takes the dish to flavor levels—and creates an all-new dimension to the Thanksgiving leftover sandwich. —www.cookingchanneltv.com

Oyster Stuffing

On Food Network’s website, Paula Deen calls it “Oyster Dressing,” but since this is Long Island, we will go ahead and call it oyster stuffing. This recipe includes cornbread, buttermilk,

ALSO BECOME ONE OF THE GREAT ONCOLOGY HOSPITALS?

You don’t have to travel far for world class cancer care. The Cancer Institute at St. Francis brings it to your doorstep. Our world class physicians are no strangers to Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors or New York Magazine’s Best Doctors annual listings.

Everything at the Cancer Institute goes beyond the standard. But when it’s all said and done, our patients say it is the personalized, compassionate care delivered by our highly skilled and experienced board-certified surgeons and their teams that separates us from the rest.

Italian Sausage Stuffing: Recipe Cont’d from page 20A

talians are sticklers for tradition, with each Italian grandmother believing her recipe is the best recipe—no matter what. Most Italian stuffing recipes adhere to old-world techniques, while at the same time veering off from the staid stuffing boredom. This recipe for Italian sausage stuffing from chef Donatella Arpaia, which serves 12, calls for wild rice, a mix of gourmet mushrooms and sweet Italian sausage.

Ingredients 1½ cup wild rice 1½ cup Arborio rice 1 large onion, diced 4 stalks of celery, diced 4 large cloves of garlic, finely chopped Container of mixed gourmet mushrooms, coarsely chopped ½ cup chopped flat leaf parsley 6 cups low-sodium chicken stock 1½ lb sweet Italian sausage casing removed 2 eggs 4-6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil Bay leaf

Mindful Eating for Thanksgiving

D

id you know that the average American consumes up to 4,500 calories during their Thanksgiving Meal? Let’s put this into perspective- an average healthy person should consume anywhere between 1,500-2,500 calories daily depending on their age, gender, height and weight. If we average this out to 2,000 calories per day, a typical Thanksgiving meal is packing in over double our daily caloric needs for the entire day.

During this time of year, eating in moderation seems to go out the window. Don’t let the holidays derail your healthy efforts. By mindfully eating this Thanksgiving and listening to your body, you’ll be able to avoid overindulging and manage your weight. Here are a few of my favorite tips for mindful eating this Thanksgiving:

Choose A Smaller Plate

If you have the option, try putting your food on a salad plate instead of a large dinner plate. You’ll be forced to choose smaller portions and carefully select which

CHOOSING HEALTH Stefani Pappas

foods you are going to mindfully indulge in. Our eyes are often bigger than our stomachs; try to sensibly fill up your plate and enjoy your meal. If you choose a balanced meal, you won’t need to go back for seconds or thirds.

Go Easy On The Appetizers

176848 C

When I was growing up, I used to eat every appetizer in sight during the holidays as if I was going to starve. One holiday I realized a very simple concept— there was still a full meal ahead of me. There is no need to waste calories and get overly stuffed by mindlessly eating calorically dense appetizers. If you’re not careful during the beginning of your Thanksgiving feast, you may spend the majority of your calories on chips and dip. Opt for water-based fruits and vegetables that are high in fiber but low in calories. Munch on fresh crudité and save some calories for your dinner meal. Remember, there is always a full meal ahead.

24A | WINTERTIME! • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

Minimize Leftovers

All of the guests are gone but the fridge is still packed with leftovers. Don’t let Thanksgiving last longer than it needs to; get those extra

leftovers out of the house to avoid mindlessly grazing throughout the week. Pack a small container of leftovers for each guest as they leave, or try your best to make just enough food for the family to avoid waste.

Don’t Drink Away Your Calories

Soda, juice, alcohol, and specialty drinks can add up in calories and sugar content. Would you rather spend 300 calories on soda or a piece of your mother’s special pecan pie? Instead of grabbing the pie and a soda on the side, opt for calorie-free drinks such as water, flavored seltzer, or tea. You’ll save yourself a large chunk of calories and hydrate the right way. At the end of the day, some special holiday foods only come around once a year. You should be able to sample foods without going overboard. Listen to your body and honor your hunger at all meals. Keep in mind portion control and moderation this Thanksgiving. Stefani Pappas, MS, RDN, CDN, CPT, is a Clinical Dietitian Nutritionist at St. Francis Hospital.

Zoup Of The Day BY STEVE MOSCO SMOSCO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

A

s the winter chill rises with each passing day, the need for a piping-hot bowl of soup becomes more and more urgent. Luckily, that need is more than met with numerous varieties of fresh, flavorful soups at Zoup! in Carle Place. The national chain, with close to 90 locations across northern U.S. and into Canada, opened its first Long Island location last year, in the same shopping complex as Ben’s Deli, Barnes & Noble and Guitar Center on Old Country Road. The proximity to the mall, as well as downtown Mineola, makes it a prime spot for lunch—but the hearty soups, sandwiches and salads make for filling meals at dinnertime, too. Ordering at Zoup! is reminiscent of an ice cream parlor, as customers can sample any of the 12, always-rotating daily soups before deciding on which variety they want. This helps avoid soup regret—but it does add a bit of order anxiety, as it can make it more difficult to decide between

two or more truly dynamic and worthy soups. Of course, that problem is easily solved by ordering more than one cup. At a recent visit, the chicken potpie, brewhouse cheddar, Italian wedding and wild mushroom barley soups all equally deserved attention, so all were ordered to

26A | WINTERTIME! • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

achieve maximum comfort. The brewhouse cheddar, ordered in a Parmesan garlic bread bowl, was rich and salty in all the right ways. The bread bowl, easily the star of the entire meal, was warm, toasty and the perfect dipping fodder for the cheesy soup with hints of English-style pale ale and a smack of mellow cheddar, along with carrots, celery, onions and garlic. The chicken potpie, topped with crumbled pie crust, is a comforting bowl of warmth with chunks of meaty chicken. The vegetables add depth—and nutrition—to the creamy concoction that is one enjoyable slurp after another. The Italian wedding soup, well-known for its rustic simplicity, shines at Zoup! with turkey meatballs swimming in a perfect marriage of greens, broth, pasta and subtle meaty flavor. The wild mushroom barley is an earthy, robust offering for anyone looking for the heft of a protein-packed soup without any of the meat. Other soups on the rotating menu include, chicken tortilla, old-fashioned chicken noodle, pepper steak, fire-roasted tomato bisque, lobster bisque and the instantly intriguing burger cheeseburger. The addition of salads and sandwiches to the menu make for a more well-rounded meal. On the Sandwichz! menu, eaters can choose between seven warm sandwiches on fresh bread just begging to be dipped, including chicken Toscana with grilled chicken, provolone, roasted

red peppers, marinated red onions and basil mayo; maple ham and bacon, with smoked ham, hickory-smoked bacon, Swiss and maple aiolo; and pesto three cheese, with pepper jack, provolone, mild cheddar, tomato and pesto. On the Greenz! menu, salad heads can choose between seven preparations, including chicken Caesar, Asian, Cobb, Greek and more. And if you’re the type of eater that desires a sweet treat after a meal, grab a soft, freshly baked cookie to satisfy your needs. Also, Zoup! sells jars of its premium broths online, with varieties including beef bone, chicken bone, chicken, veggie and low sodium chicken.

Winter Lodge Warmth BY STEVE MOSCO SMOSCO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

D

ining on Long Island invariably takes on a beach bungalow vibe when the summer months roll in—but the true taste of comfort resides in the Island’s cozier, more wintry establishments. These restaurants, preferably with a fireplace, dark paneling and wooden beams, can be the perfect remedy for the dark doldrums of winter when eaters need starchy, meaty and rich grub for warmth from the inside out. Here’s a list of the island’s best lodge-inspired restaurants.

Mirabelle Tavern 150 Main St., Stony Brook

This folksy throwback of an establishment is big on family comfort, with shareable plates, hearty soups and deep-fried

delicacies that exorcise the cold. The pumpkin soup screams late autumn-early winter, while the fish and chips offer a faint memory of summer amid the cold-hard reality of the holiday season. The cheese plates also glow with warmth, complete with fruit compote and raisin walnut toast. The dining

room’s centerpiece, a stone fireplace, provides an extra nudge of snug intimacy.

Oak Chalet

Jimmy Hays

4310 Austin Blvd., Island Park The South Shore is rife with casual eateries, so stepping into Jimmy Hays Steak House in Island Park can be a shock to the sensibilities. That sense of dismay is quickly abated with the hushed tones of the restaurant’s elegant, upscale atmosphere and a seared steak aroma that permeates the senses. The meat menu is exhaustive with dry-aged New York strip, filet mignon, Chateaubriand, double-thick lamb chops and more, while seafood also has a chance to dance with

lobster, Atlantic salmon and irrepressible cioppino bouillabasse stew.

Oak Chalet

1940 Bellmore Ave., Bellmore In this German, European and American restaurant, homemade is the rule and comfort is key. With a façade that

looks like a cozy country manor and an interior reminiscent of the coziest basement lounge, Oak Chalet is one of Long Island’s singularly unique dining experiences. Hearty German recipes abound on the menu, with wienerschnitzel, bratwurst and potato pancakes bringing a satisfying heft to dinner.

Tune In To Audio Books BY BETSY ABRAHAM BABRAHAM@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

razy drivers, fussy kids and endless traffic can make road trips to see relatives seem like a nightmare, but thankfully, there’s reprieve in audiobooks. Escape the confines of your car with these family-friendly titles, which will not only engage the little ones, but have the adults in the car dialing in as well. A Wrinkle In Time

Written by Madeleine L’Engle; Narrated by Hope Davis 6 hours, 8 minutes This beloved classic deserves a revisit before the movie comes out next year. The story follows Meg Murray, who along with her little brother Charles and friend Calvin, goes on an adventure through space and times as she searches for her scientist father. An enjoyable and imaginative story with courageous characters that will make that trip to Grandma’s go much faster.

The Chronicles of Narnia

Written by C.S. Lewis; Narrated by Michael York 4 hours, 21 minutes This enchanting narrative about four children’s visit to the magical world of Narnia has been a reader favorite, and hearing it come alive is just as special. The narrator seamlessly brings life to all the story’s characters and the engaging dialogue and plotline will keep both young and old engaged.

The Roald Dahl Audio Collection

Written by Roald Dahl; Narrated by Roald Dahl 3 hours, 40 minutes Roald Dahl lends not only his literary, but his voice talents, to this audiobook collection featuring Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Enormous Crocodile and The Magic Finger. Dahl infuses personality and humor into each of his stories, allowing the listener to escape into his fantastical worlds—an especially helpful device once traffic hits.

Nicholas St. North and the Battle of the Nightmare King: The Guardians, Book 1

Written by William Joyce and Laura Geringer; Narrated by Gerard Doyle 3 hours, 23 minutes Get in the holiday spirit with this imaginative title that features Santa as its main protagonist. Before he was Santa, he was Nicholas St. North, a swashbuckling daredevil who sought treasure and adventure. His bravery is soon put to the test, when he finds himself defending the village of Santoff Clausen against the evil Nightmare King and his Fearlings. With an enthralling story and vivid characters, this fantasy series—which is also the basis for the Rise of the Guardians movies—is perfect for children and families.

Hatchet

Written by Gary Paulsen; Narrated by Peter Coyote 3 hours, 42 minutes When 13-year-old Brian Robeson’s plane crashes in the Canadian wilderness, the teen must learn to survive, armed with only a hatchet and the clothes on his back. This Newbery Medal Honor–winning story will captivate both teen and adult listeners, who will be on the edge of their seat, waiting to hear how Robeson learns to overcome the elements and holds out hopes that someone will rescue him.

The Crossover

Written by Kwame Alexander; Narrated by Corey Allen 2 hours, 16 minutes Not only is The Crossover—about a 12-year-old boy and his relationship with his family and his love of basketball—a great story, but Kwame Alexander’s poetic verse and Corey Allen’s musical narration make for smooth and easy listening. With a flow that mirrors a basketball bouncing, the award-winning story is a fast-paced and lyrical gem that will have the whole car tuning in.

Curl Up With These Classic Holiday R BY JENNIFER FAUCI

JFAUCI@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

W

hen it’s snowing outside, the perfect spot is waiting for you inside on the couch, warmed by the fire with a cup of tea and a good book. But let’s put aside the New York Times Best-Seller list and your pile of must-read stories for a minute. Instead, throw yourself into 1800s England with A Christmas Carol or take the stage with The Nutcracker. The Gift of the Magi

It wouldn’t be Christmas without reading A Christmas Carol. This novella was published by Charles Dickens on Dec. 19, 1843. It tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, an old miser who lives during the mid-Victorian era in London. Seven years to the day of the death of his friend and

former business partner Jacob Marley, Scrooge, who despises Christmas, is visited by the ghost of Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. It is their goal to make Scrooge see the error of his ways and to hope that he can transform into a kinder, gentler man before it is too late.

Watch out, New Yorkers. Thieves have their eyes on a lot more than just your wallets. Did you know health insurance fraud costs U.S. consumers more than $80 billion a year? Criminals looking to profit off of you sure do. They’ll pick your pockets with offers of “free” medical treatments or “complimentary consultations.” They’ll do whatever they can to lure you into sharing your patient identification and insurance information to commit fraud in your name. The end result? Higher premiums for all of us, and potential permanent damage to your medical history. That’s why you have to stay vigilant about protecting yourself: • Protect your health insurance card like you would a credit card. • Read your policy and explanation of benefits statements – make sure you were at the doctor on the dates listed, and that you received the treatments listed. • Beware of “free” offers – they’re often schemes to bill you and your insurance for treatments you didn’t receive. • Be careful when providing your Social Security number, credit card numbers or any other personal information. • Most importantly, report any suspicious activity to your insurance company, and always ask questions and get answers.

Published in December 1847 under the pseudonym “Ellis Bell,” Wuthering Heights was Emily Brontë’s only novel. Her two sisters Charlotte Brontë (Currer Bell), known for Jane Eyre and Anne Brontë (Acton Bell) known for The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, also achieved literary success of their own. But it is Wuthering Heights that has found a static place on the wintertime bookshelf. An English literature classic, the novel pushed the envelope by challenging strict Victorian ideals of the day regarding social classes, religious hypocrisy and gender inequality. Everyone knows the story of Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw and if you don’t, be sure to dive into this classic this season.

Music To Match A Wintertime Mood BY DAVE GIL DE RUBIO DGILDERUBIO@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

W

inter is a season associated with a dark and cold time of the year that lends itself to introspection. To whit, the following are albums that help set the mood and are understandably considered highlights in the canons of these artists.

Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska (Columbia) [1982] The four-track demos from what was supposed to be Springsteen’s next album with the E Street Band wound up being stark and somber tales of mass murders, unemployed blue collar workers and cops all leading lives of quiet desperation.

Joni Mitchell - Blue (Reprise) [1971] Mitchell goes pillar to post on this album based on various phases of a relationship inspired by her split from Graham Nash. Sorrow sets the tone for these autobiographical songs that touch on divorce, giving up a child for adoption, infatuation and insecurity. Otis Redding - Otis Blue/Otis Redding Sings Soul (Volt/Atco) [1965] For his third album, the Big O paid homage to his recently deceased idol Sam Cooke via three covers while also tipping his cap to Motown (“My Girl”), the British Invasion (“Satisfaction”) and even put pen to paper to reflect some of his own heartache and pain (“Ole Man Trouble,” “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long”). Frank Sinatra - Sings For Only the Lonely (Capitol) [1958] Sorrow was the tenor for these songs given the fact that Sinatra was in the midst of divorcing Ava Gardner and arranger Nelson Riddle had recently suffered the deaths of his mother and daughter. The result was a slate of torch song classics.

175423M

44A | WINTERTIME! • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You (Atlantic) [1967] The Queen of Soul’s Atlantic Records debut and eleventh studio outing found her demanding her propers (“Respect,” “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man”), sharing her sorrow (“Drown In My Tears”), showing her yearning (the title cut) and sharing Sam Cooke’s sentiment of hope for racial equality (“A Change is Gonna Come”).

Billie Holiday Lady Sings the Blues (Clef) [1956] Taken from a pair of sessions in 1954 and 1956, this set was released three years before Holiday’s death. And while the Philadelphian’s voice had clearly deteriorated due to a lot of hard living, the performances remain some of Holiday’s best and feature a number of classics including “Strange Fruit” and “God Bless the Child.”

Amy Winehouse - Back to Black (Island) [2006] Don’t let Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson’s Wall-of-Sound-flavored production fool you. The last album recorded by Amy Winehouse finds the late singer-songwriter draping her tales of heartbreak and sorrow in the trappings of Motown, girl groups and a defiant streak a mile wide.

onsumerism is at an all-time high this time of year and the pressure is on to find everyone on your list the perfect gift. Instead of spending hours in the mall or online shopping, you can put your time to good use handcrafting something special for your loved ones. Knitted and crocheted gifts are one-of-a-kind and can be customized to fit the recipient’s taste. Both skills are easy to learn— from a book, from a class, from YouTube videos, from a friend— and require only a bit of yarn and a hook or pair of needles to begin. Don’t be afraid to look beyond big box craft stores for yarn. Long Island is home to dozens of independent yarn shops filled with beautiful fibers, patterns for all skill levels and knowledgeable people just waiting to share their wisdom. Here are some ideas for

meaningful and personal gifts, simple enough to make in time for the holidays, and all handmade with love.

Knit cup sleeve

Be practical and friendly to the environment by making a knitted sleeve for hot drinks. Small projects like this are great stashbusters and stocking stuffers for anyone you know who always has a cup of coffee in their hand. Pattern: Cast on even number of stitches. Tubular

Beat The Freeze BY ROBERT SINCLAIR, JR. SPECIALSECTIONS@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Sub-freezing temperatures place tremendous stress on neglected vehicles. Batteries die, tires deflate, radiators freeze, brakes seize, belts and hoses crack. The best time to give attention to those items is before the arrival of cold weather leaves you stranded and creates extra, unneeded expense and danger. AAA recommends all drivers have a certified technician inspect and prepare their vehicles. Last winter (November 2016 to March 2017) AAA Northeast rescued 148,827 stranded drivers due to preventable cold-weather-related items, with dead batteries number

one with 80,793 calls. Being stranded in the cold is more than inconvenient, it can be dangerous. Most vehicles are 90 percent metal and will quickly drop to outdoor temperatures without a running engine to provide heat, most likely due to a dead battery. If this happens in a remote area, it can be life threatening. The cold can also thicken motor oil, making it difficult if not impossible to start a vehicle, especially if the battery is weak. According to Michelin North America, tires lose one PSI (pound-per-square-inch) of pressure for every 10 degrees the air temperature falls. Also, Michelin says tires naturally lose one PSI per month. So, with no attention, a tire with 40 PSI at 80

degrees on June 1, will be at 30 PSI on Nov. 1 if the temperature is 30 degrees. Also, a government study some years ago found a third of all drivers were unknowingly rolling around on already underinflated tires, which cold weather can leave

visibly flat. Last winter, flat tires caused the second highest number of AAA Northeast calls with 45,516. Robert Sinclair, Jr. is the manager of media relations for AAA Northeast.

Five Smart Buys To Beat Winter tackling the ice layer. Handle shapes and materials vary, too, so be sure to test several options to find a comfortable fit to make the onerous chore less difficult.

Windshield wipers

Heat extremes of the summer months tend to damage wiper blades, so it’s a good idea to replace them before winter sets in. Damaged wiper blades can result in annoying noises during operation, but more important, they can affect your visibility in inclement weather conditions. A hybrid blade is a good choice for winter because it combines the technology of traditional metal wiper blades and improved pressure of beam wiper blades for top performance during extreme weather. The soft rubber shell protects against damage from ice scrapers. Changing the rear wiper blade, if your vehicle has one, is also important for optimum visibility and safer winter driving.

Winter fluids

Make sure you always have at least half a tank of gas to avoid a frozen fuel line. Also, carry extra windshield washer fluid to ensure proper visibility and avoid

Cont’d rom page 61A

diluting windshield washer fluid with water as it could freeze at low temperatures. Washer fluid with de-icer additive can help prevent ice buildup as you’re driving. In addition, a spray de-icer is a handy way to clear a heavily iced vehicle or help gain access to a frozen lock.

Winter tires/chains

If you frequently encounter snow or ice, or if the temperature consistently approaches freezing, your tires need the extra grip and turning capabilities that only winter tires can deliver. Even if you have four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, you still need winter tires to conquer the elements and stay safe. Winter tires are designed to perform better in a wide range of wintry conditions, improving your vehicle’s grip and performance and shortening your braking distances.

Emergency kit

In case of emergencies, you may get stuck or need to spend time in your car waiting for

62A | AUTO GUIDE • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

help. Make sure that your vehicle is equipped to handle a wide range of scenarios. Always be sure to carry a tire gauge, jack and fully inflated spare. If you get stuck, you’ll be glad to have a shovel and gravel,

salt or a small piece of carpet for traction. Jumper cables or even a portable charger can help address battery-related problems. Maximize your safety with emergency flares and a first-aid kit. In addition, stash a small supply of nonperishable food and water, as well as warm clothes or a blanket, especially if you’ll be driving lesser-traveled roads.

Purchasing A Used Vehicle? Make Sure It’s Not Flood Damaged BY ANTON MEDIA STAFF SPECIALSECTIONS@

ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

Purchasing a used vehicle and later learning it has been flood damaged can be very problematic and lead to costly issues down the road. Worst yet, these vehicles can be unhealthy to occupy because of mold and bacteria growing in the carpet and ventilation system. It is important for those considering the purchase of a used vehicle to check for signs of water intrusion or contamination.

Take The Sniff Test Close all the windows and doors and let the car sit. Then crack open a door and sniff. Mildew and mold have very distinctive smells and it doesn’t take long for that smell to present itself.

Try The Touch Test Get some paper towels and press them against the low spots in the carpet. The paper towels will draw the moisture out and reveal if the carpet is wet under the surface. If the paper towel becomes wet it could mean water has gotten into the car.

Investigate The Interior Look under the seats and dash for corrosion and rust. Exposed metal that is untreated and rusted as well as mud and debris in places it does not belong, are signs of water infiltration.

Inspect The Instrument Panel Turn on the key and perform a bulb test. Make sure every bulb lights up and has no active faults.

Take It To A Professional A professional technician can raise the car and look underneath to see if there is any mud, sticks or rocks in the suspension as well as check the oil in the differentials to make sure they contain no water. Taking these steps can help you identify any issues and give you piece of mind. Visit www.carcare. org to learn more. 64A | AUTO GUIDE • NOVEMBER 15 - 21, 2017

Tips For Teen Drivers BY JENNIFER BERKOWITZ EDITORIAL@ANTONMEDIAGROUP.COM

G

etting your permit or license when you are a teen can be a trying test of patience and awareness for both child and parent. It is easy to overlook certain obligations as driver, especially for those just getting the hang of it for the first time. According to Dmv.org, multiple studies have indicated that driving while using a cell phone is the equivalent of driving under the influence. This includes using a handheld phone such as a Bluetooth speaker, texting while driving and even when stopped at a red light which can be fatal. Research from the website shows that on average, texting can cause a loss of focus on the road for 4.6 seconds. Another important aspect to driving is watching the speed limit. Peter Macedo, a driver’s education instructor, said “For teens, most accidents occur during speeding. Observing the speed limit is important since that is the tip most people tend to avoid.” Another contributor is distractions while driving such as eating, drinking, changing the

radio or playing loud music. This can cause the teen’s mind and vision to wander easily so they are more likely to veer off the road if they aren’t paying close attention. It is also vital to keep in mind drivers around you with more experience. Instances in aggressive driving such as road rage will have an impact on your driving if distracted. “Remain calm and courteous, avoid eye contact and allow the aggressive driver to pass you. If you’re being followed by an aggressive driver, the best thing you can do is drive to a police station,” said Macedo. Teens should also know how to avoid and handle aggressive drivers. Never cause another driver to change their speed or direction. That means not forcing another driver to use their brakes, or turn the steering wheel in response to something you have done. Another tip is to endure and forgive. The other driver may just be having a really bad day so assume it is not personal. Turning on your headlights to increase invisibility is particularly

important in order for you and other cars to be able to see each other. Especially in early evening and dusk or even when you feel like it’s light out. Not only is the responsibility put on the child controlling the vehicle, but also on the adult in the passenger seat to guide them if need be. According to Healthychildren.org, parents might want to initially limit your teen to no teen passengers, and gradually increase passenger privileges as your teen gains more driving experience. Even before this, the decision to determine if your child is fit to drive in the first place is a crucial one for parents to make. If you’re concerned that your teen may not be ready to drive, you can prevent your teen from getting a license. All states allow parents to block their teen from getting one if they seem to be immature or reckless to others and/or themselves. The parent can be a role model by knowing the laws of their state and setting specific rules to enforce responsibility.

INTERNATIONAL WORD FIND Measurements

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Relationships are about discovery this week. It will be as true for people you’ve known forever as it will be for people you’ve never met. There is always more to know about the other person, but that’s not the whole story. You’ll learn even more that you didn’t know about yourself as people bring out different facets of you.

Solution: 28 Letters

© 2017 Australian Word Games Dist. by Creators Syndicate Inc.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The saying goes, “There’s no rest for the wicked.” That means the good have to work round the clock as well to keep the balance. This won’t be a restful week for you. You’ll come out of it exhilarated by the amount you were able to accomplish and satisfied by your counterbalance to some of the negativity in the world. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be the icebreaker wherever you go. Your smile starts the thaw. You’ve such a natural way of warming people up that you don’t even realize you’re doing it. You like people and want to know more about them; maybe your secret is as simple as that! You’ll encourage the discouraged and help the helpless. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Belief systems can often be more convenient than true. It’s part of the human flaw. For instance, some only believe in fate when it’s to their advantage; when things go wrong, they invoke randomness instead. You’ll see how it’s all connected this week and think carefully about how your decisions affect others.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Pretending to know -- well that’s just basic, common human folly. You could even make an argument that it’s a normal part of the learning process. Sometimes you don’t feel like being the one with the questions. You just want to fit in and figure it out on the fly. And that’s exactly what you’ll wind up doing this week. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The important projects may not be very fun. In fact, key efforts may seem to drag on and on. Keep telling yourself that substantial results don’t happen overnight. The big deals take patience. Be in it for the long game and try to find an entertaining way to focus in the meantime. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Tact and diplomacy will take you far, and in fact will be the key lessons of the week. These things are best learned in the heated moments, either by getting it wrong, or getting it right -- likely both. Be gentle and kind with yourself either way, and of course with the others, too. The point is, we’re all just learning here. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Much of the week will be devoted to empowering others by supporting their endeavors, echoing their values and generally validating what’s important to them. You know how to do this because it was shown to you -- or because it wasn’t, and you learned how to be a better friend on your own. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Scars show the places where life met us and we dared to tangle with it. Love your scars this week, especially the invisible ones. You’re not only stronger for them but also more creative, resourceful, communicative and, best of all, empathetic. This week’s wins will be related to what scarred you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You have a talent you can spend lavishly this week, sharing it like it’s a cherished secret, splashing it wide as headlines, tossing it out like beads from a Mardi Gras float. This is how your talent will grow inside you, and also how it will spread across the minds and hearts of the people who can appreciate it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The gifts that deepen the heart usually come wrapped inside a struggle, tied up with the bow of loss or disappointment. Usually. But every once in a while it’s a rare strike of electric understanding or intense beauty that deepens us, and it comes to us exactly as it is, no wrapping, just a pure present. Enjoy.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS

Life bubbles up between people with chemistry, inside complicated relationships, all around people in the race and all over those with opposing goals. You’ll be in the thick of it -- solving problems, loving the challenge, stretching to make more of yourself and succeeding often and with results so abundant that you’ve much excess to share. Don’t be afraid to want something seemingly shallow because good comes of the effort that will give a healing touch to deeper issues. COPYRIGHT 2017 CREATORS.COM

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Before you can absorb the beauty around you, you must actually have beauty around you. You’re so creative this week that when your environment fails to make its loveliness readily apparent, you’ll use your imagination to come up with a context in which that beauty exists. This is your gift, and you’ll share it.

CORRECTION

176897 C

The Voter’s Guide that recently appeared in your Anton newspaper was published in conjunction with the League of Women Voters of Nassau County, which has a long and storied history of presenting voters with a non-partisan view of the candidates they can choose from on Election Day. Anton was pleased to have the opportunity to partner with the League this election season in presenting to our many loyal readers their content. In our agreement with the League of Women Voters of Nassau County, it clearly states that under no circumstances should there be any political advertising contained in the presentation of their candidate profilesspecifically the Voter’s Guide. In our efforts to produce this guide for our readers, we did in fact include some political ads, which was a complete oversight of the rules we were presented with prior to publication. Anton also has a long and rich history in the marketplace, which we too are fiercely protective of. We sincerely apologize to the League of Women Voters of Nassau County for this mishap, and look forward to resuming the relationship we’ve enjoyed with them over the years.

A Hit On Both Sides Of Town BY JOSEPH CATRONE

on’t call it hibernation—baseball may take the winter off, but it never sleeps. With free agency already underway, a select few players will be tasked with joining our beloved Yankees and Mets with the hopes of bolstering the teams’ respective postseason prospects for next year. With that in mind, here’s a look back at a few players who set the bar exceedingly high by flourishing in both Yankees and Mets uniforms. It’s unlikely that any offseason addition this year will someday make us all so collectively happy, but we can dream.

Curtis Granderson Always streaky, often dynamic, Granderson caught fire in the middle of a four-year stint with the Yankees, topping 40 home runs in back-to-back seasons from 2011-12 and garnering MVP consideration. He would jump ship in 2014 for the Yankees’ crosstown rivals and, after a rocky start, became a formidable presence in the Mets’ lineup, helping them reach the World Series in 2015. He also provided the Mets with much needed durability by playing in at least 150 games in each of his three full seasons with the team. Most crucially, Granderson sported a poised and media-friendly demeanor regardless of which New York clubhouse he called home.

David Cone The right-hander became synonymous with Yankees greatness in the late 1990s, anchoring the starting rotation on four championship teams and authoring a perfect game in 1999. But Cone was a coveted starter long before his days in pinstripes, and first rose to stardom as a member of the Mets, compiling an 81-51 record from 1987-92. Particularly dominant was his 1988 season, in which Cone, aged 25, finished an astonishing 20-3 with a 2.22 ERA, guiding the Mets to a division title and finishing third in the Cy Young award vote. Darryl Strawberry Unlike Cone, who was consistent for most of his career, Strawberry was a bona fide superstar who eventually lost his way, only to find a second life later on. The power-hitting right fielder became a favorite of Mets fans in an instant, winning the 1983 Rookie of the Year award and subsequently making seven straight all-star teams from 1984-90. Strawberry left the team following that stretch and fell on hard times, enduring several lackluster seasons and a number of issues off the field. But when the Yankees found themselves needing a spark during their 1996 pennant race, they threw the beleaguered “Straw man” a lifeline and he did not disappoint, tallying 11 homers in the final two months of the season and torturing the Orioles with three long balls in the ALCS, en route to the championship. Strawberry would help the Yankees win two more titles. Other Worthy Choices—Carlos Beltran, Dwight Gooden, Orlando Hernandez

n the era that blessed the world with the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, O-Town, LFO and even NKOTB (New Kids on the Block), the signature R&B fourpart harmonies of 98° elevated the ’90s group to the elite boy band club. Along with brothers Nick and Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffre, member Jeff Timmons shared his excitement about the band’s new Christmas album, Let It Snow, which was recorded over the summer. Just in time for Christmas, 98° is set to perform their seasonal hits on Nov. 26, at their upcoming show in Westbury, part of the “At Christmas Tour.” And these Ohio boys are more than happy to get into the holiday spirit on Long Island. “One of the luxuries is that our fans are still fans. It’s surprising to us after all the years and careers in the entertainment industry, still having fans that want to talk to us,” said Timmons on the popularity of the band that has spanned two decades. “The fact that we made an impact, we’re so lucky and happy to perform and fortunate enough to be doing it 20 years later. The group recorded Let It Snow, a follow up to their previous holiday album, This Christmas, which sold more than 1 million copies. Now available in stores and online, the album includes songs like “Mary Did You Know?,” “What Christmas Means To Me,” “Silent Night,” “Let It Snow,” “The First Noel” and “Please Come Home For Christmas” along with eight other tracks. “We wanted it [the album] to be similar to our first Christmas album, and holiday records are timeless…it’s one of the things were proud of,” said Timmons. “Everyone seems to enjoy it so we feel very fortunate about it. We’ve all gone in different directions and we’ve grown musically but the one project we’re most proud of is the Christmas album.” Timmons and his bandmates make

received their first taste of fame. “We’re all Ohio guys from small towns and one of the first things we did when we started coming up, we we’re trying to get recognized so we went to the Roosevelt Field Mall,” said Timmons. “There were so many women that were fawning over us and that was really when it first hit us.” Of the venue, which is more intimate and in the round, a switch from the other locations they have performed at, the band loves Long Island and always finds a way to get back to Westbury for their huge New York fan base. “It’s going to be a great show as usual, especially with our amazing, immaculate and cool dance moves,” said Timmons with a laugh. “We’ve

met great people there, especially the fans.” Known for their ballads and slow songs, 98° always comes out with a bunch of energy and good fun, transporting fans back to the ’90s. The upcoming holiday show will feature classics and originals and for someone who has been living the holidays since July, Timmons can’t wait for Christmas. “I’m excited to wear my Santa costume around the house and spend time with family in New York,” he said. “All of that nostalgia that goes with 98° and my career, it will be cool to celebrate it there.” To get tickets to the “At Christmas Tour” coming to Westbury, visit www. thetheatreatwestbury.com.
