Since moving to Tennessee in 1998, the Snob family has visited the Florida Panhandle most every year, sometimes going both in the spring and late summer. When the kids were still young Snobs, we visited the Destin side of what we Southerners call the “Redneck Riviera.” Later, when it became just Mrs. Pie and me, […]

The background to this Tennessee pizza stop involved me skipping a dinner function at an overnight business event that was just way too crowded for my COVID concerns. With inclement weather moving a planned open-air outdoor function to a more confined indoors, I thought a pizza exploration would be a better alternative. My past pizza […]

If you follow this blog, you may already know that Mrs. Pie hails from the Texas town of Weatherford. Just a 30-minute pickup truck ride west of Ft. Worth, in our 40-plus years together, I sure have seen this town change. More people, more places, and more traffic, it also now has its first Neapolitan […]

Over on the west side of my hometown, on what we locals call “Old Highway 96,” sits the development known as Westhaven. It’s a rather large somewhat upscale place full of a lot of homes too close together for my comfort. There’s also something a bit “Truman Show” about the sameness of the houses that […]

It had been a long time in coming, but Mrs. Pie and I finally made our first trip to see our son, The Philosopher, and his wife at their new digs in suburban Philly. They moved just a few towns over to Lansdowne, and we found ourselves aimlessly looking for a place to have a […]

I can hear it already. Has the Snob lost his mind? Has he run out of new pizza places to visit? Are they paying him for this blog post? Is he just too distraught over the Yankees losing to the Red Sox? What goes with him writing about a chain whose main focus ain’t pizza? […]

Well, the Snob is still here but working at a snail’s pace. I think not being in New York City for 18 months now has made me lost some of my spark for pizza. But nonetheless, that doesn’t mean I haven’t found a few new good spots recently. Here’s another one from my holiday on […]

Let me start by saying that it’s time for the Snob to get busy again. It’s not that I haven’t been eating pie lately, it’s just that I need to get my blogging mojo back. So, without further ado, here’s the first of a few that I’ve been stockpiling over the last few months. The […]

Commodity: A basic good used in commerce that is interchangeable with other goods of the same type. Let’s face it. Pizza is more important to some folks more than it is to others. Case in point is one of my pizza pal’s fathers. I recently gave my friend a pizza tip for his family while […]

Mrs. Pie and I have lived in Franktown for over 20 years and have always loved our quaint historic downtown. Drive west on Highway 96 and you will eventually hit the circle and immediately feel its charm. Albeit small in quantity, the quality of the shops and spots to eat has been high. However, things […]
