have i every told you guys about the time that i delivered godfathers pizzas for a month? well i did. then i just stopped going in/quit. three weeks later the manager calls and is all "umm, you are on the schedule. where are you?" then i'm like "are you serious? i haven't been there for like three weeks." then he's like "well we could use you." and i'm like "oh man. sorry, friend. click".

which of these was your fav. and which would you most recommend to a very white mid-westerner?

i've been to #26 and thought it was very tasty pizza. maybe a bit too touristy for a townie, but i'm not a good judge of that.

The best pizza I've ever had was at Roberta's (#6) but that part of Bushwick still feels super sketchy at night.  You won't see any tourists at that place.  It's the kind of place where a waitress can work her last shift fully naked and nobody says anything -- which recently happened.  Paulie Gee's (#13) is two blocks from my apartment -- next time you come I'll make sure we meet up and go there!  Paulie Gee is a great guy.  The artichoke pizza (#44) seems like mostly a gimmick to me, but lots of folks swear by it.  (I most recently tried a bite drunkenly last Saturday night.)

Grimaldi's is very good and so is Lombardi's (#43), and both are good representations of classic New York Style Pizza (TM) -- both are a bit touristy, but townies also still go there because they are tasty!

I've been to Grimaldi's! It was great! Asians right next to me were taking pictures of each other holding their silverware and posing with their beers and pizza, just being the most stereotypical Asian I've ever seen! Like, just as bad as Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Good 'za tho.

Roberta's sounds like a dining experience I'll need to work up to. Paulie Gee's in March or maybe before the Pinstripe Bowl.  :thumbs:

so townie Alexander Paynes new movie Nebraska just came out. Will Forte is in it apparently.

Quote from:  NYTimes
Did you take any detours while shooting?

Quote from:  Will Forte
“I had an extravagant weekend and went to Omaha. Somebody told me it was like the Portland, Ore., of the Midwest, and that’s a good way to put it. It’s very laid-back.

We stayed in the Magnolia Hotel, which was really charming, and there were some restaurants that were so tasty. I would put the Boiler Room up against any restaurant in New York.

Making my first ever trip to this fine city this weekend for the CWS. The only thing I know about Omaha is what Adam Duritz sings about.

Where should we eat afterwards?

where are you staying?  what is the group dynamic?  If you want someplace near the stadium go here:

http://www.upstreambrewing.com/

It is in this area:

http://www.oldmarket.com/index.asp


Will be an absolute zoo during the CWS.  Should be fun.  The Old Market area is the kind of area that KC needs but lacks.
Will be up in West O this weekend. Is the Legacy Upstream still the top suggesto?

I just saw this... I've only had #92, #78, #51, which is somewhat depressing.  After looking at all of those, it is basically guaranteed that I get #92 for lunch today.
