|GOOD TO THE LAST BITE...|
31 and done - October 31st marked the end to my eighth year of eating-pizza-every-day-of-October. It was delicious! Thank you, everyone who helped make it possible. Also, thank you to the pizzerias.
Redux & Reviews - Aside from hearing Sinatra sing anytime I shut my eyes, there seems to be no immediate consequences of pizza month '09. I lost a little weight due to my eat-nothing-before-pizza methodology. It helped me crave pizza but probably made me a bit irritable till I got my fix. 31 apologies! All the reviews of the pizzerias are (or will soon be) available at 31daysofpizza.COM.
And the winner is... - By now we know Bloomberg won his 27th championship and the Yankees are the new mayor of NYC but we don't know which pizzeria served Sean the best tasting slice. We also don't know which pizzeria offered the best overall experience nor which one was the best new discovery?
These questions will all be answered at the 2009 Slicey Awards Ceremony (Thu Dec 3, 7:30p, @Parkside Lounge).
RSVP for this free event now and secure your seat and free high quality NYC pizza. Click here for more info.
Pizza Film/Video Festival - I recorded a lot of raw footage and photos at each pizza place I visited last month and now eleven talented editors are hard at work making videos.
All will be screened at the Slicey Awards Ceremony (mentioned above) and one will, based on audience votes, be dubbed "BEST IN SHOW."
This year, the editors include Andrew Tucci, Kevin Hines, Hannah Chase, Alex Marino, Shawn Amaro, Robin Rothman, Louie Pearlman, Shawn Wickens, Nathaniel Rink, and (reigning champion) Erik Tanouye.
By the way, in the days counting down until December 3rd, I will be publishing the other 20 videos as fast as my editing skills permit me. Here are the first five (2-3 min) videos. I hope you enjoy them...
