Local Produces The Falls

Claude Slotnick is a firm believer that it’s all about the journey, not the destination. This theme is the driving force behind his play The Falls, which premieres on the Theater for the New City stage this weekend.

The play centers around Nina and Dodge, who meet at a bar and the next morning decide to take a spontaneous road trip to Niagara Falls.

Slotnick, a Plainview native, says the play is not so much about the couple being at Niagara Falls as it is about them getting there.

Gluten-Free Desserts Delight

Written by Patty Servidio Thursday, 03 July 2014 00:00

When I became gluten and dairy- free back in 2008, there weren’t many options available to me as far as bakery items was concerned. But as time went on and the need presented itself more and more, products began to flood the market and more happy eating days began to present themselves, especially here in Hicksville. 


On a recent excursion through Hicksville, I came upon “Allie’s GF Goodies”, a new custom gluten-free bakery that is tree-nut free as well as kosher.


Each item that peered up enticingly from behind the glass looked better than the next, and soon, my husband was spending a few bucks on some “Sneakydoodles”, a gluten-free, vegetarian version of a Snickerdoodle.

Around 300 cars showed up at the Automat Car Show in Hicksville. The show was open for everyone and free for exhibitors and spectators.

Catering to its environmentally and health-conscious customers, West East All Natural Bistro and Bar in Hicksville has taken the step to eliminate soda off its menu.

According to owner and health coach Raquel Jadeja, soda is not something that the individuals who frequent West East Bistro look for in a meal. “We did look at sales and see what we sell in soda on a weekly basis and it was so negligible,” she explained. “It’s just not something our clientele looks for.”
