Ah, the Roosevelt Field Mall. Long Island has its share of iconic shopping malls, and picking Roosevelt Field for this strip was no easy decision. First of all, Roosevelt Field is a Nassau County mall, and Eastin and I are both Suffolk County born and raised. But, and I hate to admit this, Suffolk’s most iconic mall, the Smithhaven Mall, just doesn’t have Roosevelt Field’s cache. Roosevelt Field is still the place that you go to when you want to make believe that shopping at a mall doesn’t suck and is, in fact, somehow interesting and exclusive.

There are two lingering Munchkin references in this strip. They are subtle, but they are there.
