If the Pizza Snob visited the North Pole, he’d try to find a pizza place there. Like those other famous explorers, I would have no idea what to expect, but I’d be pursuing a personal passion and of course come back with something to write about. But I really don’t like the cold that much, […]

One of my favorite places on the planet is the Factory in Franklin. Just a short hike from the brick house I call home, this converted building complex is a popular place full of great local places to eat and shop. In fact, I’m writing this there in a coffee shop before I go visit […]
