A great mural at a pizza restaurant

What a great mashup! It combines one of my favorite movies with a favorite food. It works better than the Battlestar Galactica version on my Blu-Ray boxed set. I found this via Twitter…just did some quick research, I might see it … Continue reading

Rosati’s Pizza!

Just got back from this place. I should’ve taken a picture with my own darned iPhone but it was a rather exhausting afternoon recording Gifts of the Maggi #3 with Kathy and my guest Holly (she found the place). We had a … Continue reading

The real, abandoned Westworld

This picture made the rounds days ago but it made me think about the scenes from Futureworld when Blythe Dinner and Peter Fonda were allowed to see the ruins of Westworld. So in many ways, Chuck E Cheese and Showbiz Pizza … Continue reading

A necklace in the spirit of October!

I couldn’t put off National Pizza Month off entirely once I scored this necklace at Waterloo Records and gave it to my co-worker (maybe even a friend) Holly. More will be explained with this nice person in time. We both … Continue reading

Two jokes below, one in the sign and one I thought of

Conan’s Pizza rocks, along with a couple other locals, but this place has a sense of humor as you may see in the sign. Give up on the first one? The italicized text works if you sing along to the … Continue reading

Happy Pi(e) Day!

This day we didn’t get to celebrate Einstein’s 140th birthday nor my friend Nelson’s with any good fruit or cream pies at work. Bummer. However, at a smaller level we did eat deep-dish pizza from Conan’s Pizza during a team … Continue reading

Meet Vincenzo!

A little mascot I bought for the cafeteria people who always make an awesome pizza when I’m in the mood for the dish at work. They chose his name.

Welcome back Mangia!

The recent rumors were true. Mangia Pizza has returned to Austin’s north side! My favorite deep-dish pizza place in Central Texas regained the location on Gracy Farms (it’s near MoPac and Burnet). The interim place Pizza Bistro was very good … Continue reading
