Let's have some positive chit chat. Where's the one place you go for the best pizza in your vicinity.

Me: Ciro's Pizza.

Get a slice of peperoni, dump some red pepper, garlic and parmesian on it and :drool:

Queens, NY - Pizza Town. Simply the best plain or pepporoni slice I've ever had.

Manhattan - Traditional thin crust: Patsy's on 23rd Street.
Regular NY slice - Perfecto 92nd and Broadway

Best pizza I've ever eaten anywhere. I've heard the same from Bostonians, New Yorkers, whatever. Truly sublime.

If thin crust is your style, I like Cranky Pat's Pizza in Oshkosh or Neenah, or Frank's Pizza Palace in Appleton. When you ask for mushrooms at both of those places, they stack on the mushrooms like nobody's business.

We have a lot of good pizza joints nearby, depends on what style of pizza you like I guess. Brunos is just plain amazing... Giodettes has great stuffed pizzas, columbos, milanos, vesuvios, Kingsmen for closer to a newyork style. We are always trying out new places... dang it now I'm hungry. sigh. word.

Probably not. I really don't understand DC's move on this one.



Darwyn Cooke understands Batman better then a lot of people. The same if not more then Dini. Look at Batman:Ego and the bits in New Frontiere. Tim Sale has done Long Halloween and Dark Victory. Does one of the best interpretations of Batman EVER.

There are 85 pizza places on this list. Granted, several are Pizza Hut and Dominos but there's got to be SOMEWHERE that's better than Pizza Hut. They have a Villa Pizza and if it's the same Villa Pizza that's here in Las Vegas then yes, there is at least one place in Memphis that has better pizza than Pizza Hut.

"Medigan" is an Italian-American, um, racial slur I guess. It's actually "americano" but that's how it's pronounced in the ersatz ny/nj Italian (mannigott' vs manicotti). It's basically a term for "non-ethnic" white people. So, anybody who is white but not Italian, Jewish, Greek, Polish would be called one. It's usually used in the context of food, and is tongue in cheek. It's not really a hateful word.

ugh, I haaate pukey john's.

My favorite pizza place here in Indianapolis is Bazbeau's (sp?) which there is one downtown off of Mass ave and another one in the Broad Ripple area. I blame my ex for getting me hooked there. She's always want to get the vegitarian pizza, which was really kick ass. Whenever I go running in the downtown area, I always end up craving that, because where I run, goes right by there or at least close enough to let the scents of the pizza hit you and draw you in.
