  7. Good food, good fun, good entertainment (can’t go wrong with George Strait). It would be hard to choose a pizza, but I’ve never had Greek pizza, so I think I’d have to try it. First. πŸ™‚

  8. Just looking at those pizzas put on ten pounds, but I haven’t had a Greek pizza in years and that’s what I would blow my calorie counting on. Your neighborhood has so much fun! What a great place to live!

  9. Dear John,
    the beginning of your post made us really hungry. We love pizzas.
    In a book about the history of food we read that pizza is the mayor distribution of the US to food. It’s was invented by Italian immigrants (Maffiosi) in New York.
    Keep well

  14. “…a high of only 90 degrees. Good thing it’s typically a contact sport. Good luck to all. I’m going to start with a couple slices of the House special, but I doubt I’ll walk away without a slice of meat lovers. All those pizzas look good.

  16. Would you believe me if I said after seeing all those pictures of pizza I had to stop your tour and get a slice for myself? I don’t like drooling all over the keyboard, but pizza is my kryptonite. Good weather. I much prefer foam ax throwing versus actual ax throwing. Love a barbershop quartet. Thanks for the outing, John.
