Timothy Whitcomb (timothywhitcomb) says: You too? I have eclectic tastes in music, too.
gwen patton (ardrhi) says: Pizza as we know it was invented in New York. What they have in Italy bears little resemblance to it.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: @ardrhi: I know, I just like the sound of the phrase "Vivaldi and pizza" ... sounds like an art film.
Avilyn (avilyn) says: Ed - Have you ever listened to DaVinci's Notebook? Some of your parodies on SH & Narbonic remind me of their work. Definitely worth checking out if you're not familiar with them.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:
@avilyn: Yes, I have heard DVN. "Title of the Song" is one of my favorites. (For those who don't know, "Title of the Song" is the world's most generic fill-in-the-blanks boy-band love song.)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eoCGKFg-WYw
Christopher Bacon (tricksterson) says: Besides it was still Italians in this country, or at least people of Italian descent and culture, who came up with it so it counts.
Timothy Whitcomb (timothywhitcomb) says:
I LOVE DVN! I love the acapella approach on theri songs.

Well, that is true. It was Lombardi and Pero around 1900 who first made what Americans would recognize as "pizza" in New York. Their pizzaria, "Lombardi's", opened in 1905. It's still around now, 32 Spring Street, in Manhattan.
I like NY Style...I grew up eating the pizza of a Greek immigrant named Gus on Long Island. But I prefer Chicago-style, both thin and deep-dish. There's a place that makes a deep-dish stuffed pizza in the Chicago suburbs...*sigh*. If you get to Naperville, try Uncle Pete's stuffed pepperoni and sausage. The large weighs 8 lbs, so bring friends.Log In or Register to post a comment! It's free!
