My husband works in Bohemia and a lot of my friends/roomates in college were from Ronkonkoma.

We live in Westchester and I work in the city but I've been dying to go to Mama's for their gluten-free menu. We went to Pace's Steakhouse in Happague for his work Christmas party and they were so great about making sure everything was safe for me. If you are looking to go out for a nice meal I would highly reccomend Pace's. They really couldn't have been nicer and more accomodating.

Thank you so much for the information. I should have been more clear -- it was for someone else (I live in Pittsburgh) but I am going to pass it along. Thanks again. It's so wonderful that everyone is so helpful.

Kim.

No Lauri--I didn't make it to the meeting. The pollen wars are so bad here right now and I was so sick last Tuesday--I came home from work and went to bed. I work at Island Optical Center on Main, near the library. One of our eyewear reps is married to a member of the group--I can't think of her name, but his is Tony. I just emailed Barb about being sick--I will be at the vendor fair too, volunteered for as much time as my body will allow me to give. I guess we will meet soon, won't we. Deb
