Angelo’s Pizza in Fords, NJ—Just Another Decent Slice in the Pizza State

While recently visiting my Dad in the heart of the Pizza State, my thoughts drifted to my non-pizza passion, and I checked to see if there was a record store nearby. For those of you who may not share this interest, some of us old timers prefer their music to be physical rather than digital. […]

Joe & Pat’s NYC –Another Superb Staten Island Pizza Comes to Manhattan

Back in my early Snob days, I once crossed the Bayonne Bridge into Staten Island and scored some spanking-good slices at the legendary Joe and Pat’s Pizzeria & Restaurant. It’s a place I’ve since reflected upon in that I was still learning the ropes of the Snob trade and I under-rated it. While I’ve not […]

Famous Pizza & Beer—Having a Slice in Sedona, Arizona

My whimsical idea of eating “snack bar pizza” at the Grand Canyon like I did a few years ago at the ruins in Pompeii, never happened. My pizza expectations at our next Arizona travel stop, Sedona, were equally as non-existent as they were at the Canyon. Being sort of a “foodie” town, I did spot […]

Famous Joe’s of the Village–Now Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope

If it weren’t for the recent news of the latest New York City Pizza War, I may have never gotten to visit what is now called Joe’s Pizza of Park Slope. Following similar battles involving the names Patsy and Ray, this one was about the use of the name Joe’s in Brooklyn by the guy […]
