Saturday night after some debate we decided we still wanted pizza but wanted to try something new. We picked EVO due to CCP's reviews.
Point of fact I would like to make first, I never order pizza from chain stores. They are overpriced, over sauced and the pizza is usually lousy.
We were probably the oldest couple in the place being in our (very) late 40's, as we looked over the menu I could not tell if we were in a pizza place or not. I couldn’t find most of our favorite toppings on the menu but the one I did find was $3! Strike one.
After looking at the beer prices I felt it necessary to ask the server if the price was reflecting any sort of stock option in the brewing company.
There wasn't any sort of normal beer to choose from. They had what seemed like dozens of craft beers. I have had these beers before, I did like “Theobroma” from Dogfish but it isn't easy to find anymore. There are certain foods that I demand a decent beer for such as, cheeseburgers, fish & chips and PIZZA. I will drink Guinness with any food on the planet but I was told they didn’t have that on tap or in a bottle. Strike two. (Thank goodness we were not far away from Madra Rua Pub.)
After looking the menu over for 10 minutes or so and having the server come by every 2 minutes to get our order we decided to just order the Focaccia appetizer and two drinks. The server asked if we were ordering anything else and we declined because there wasn’t anything we wanted to eat on the menu, the server got snippy and disappeared. After 20 minutes we got our drinks and a plate of the Focaccia and oil. We needed more oil because the Focaccia was not stale but hard from being too close to the ovens maybe? (I would suggest a few shakes of a good Modena Balsamic Vinegar along with the oil for the Focaccia) Strike three.
I am not sure where the young people who were in there work, but they must be making more money than this engineer. I see no reason at all for the prices of the food and more importantly the beer.
After a few pints of Guinness down the street we picked up a pizza on our way home. Don't worry Mr Baroni, we will never be unfaithful to Baroni’s NY Pizza again!!
"The GOP's love affair with the fetus is legendary, as is the fact that its passion instantly cools when the fetus emerges from the womb to become a living, breathing child. Children, unlike fetuses, require services and resources that GOPers are loath to provide — things like education, healthcare, and nutrition. The Republican passion for these unfortunates begins to warm once more as they approach voting age."
The GOP would love to start what England had for the impoverished children of the Victorian era, WORKHOUSES. Once the fetus is born and raised into a sickly child it can go to work to make clothing, shoes, etc and then the USA will be able to compete with China! I heard this exact scenario spoken by a dyed in the wool Republican at a book club meeting just last week. Everyone else was appalled by the idea but the old GOPer thought it was a great one! I would have never believed that anyone could think such a thing in our "enlightened" world. As for ReVille, I feel it necessary to say that anyone can bring an accusation. Once a person is labelled with an accusation of this scope it doesn't necessarily have to be true for it to ruin that person's life. I will say the same for PSU. (I admit I am a grad of PSU) Until some kind of proof and not "He said/He said" accusations, we must tone down the torches and pitchforks.
