Nice write-up and pictures Craig. Sounds like a good trip.

So you did or did not go to Mast Brothers? (sounds like you skipped it?)

If you went, what did you think?

Yes, we made it there and ate lots of good chocolate. I brought a nice selection back with me for a port pairing when you guys come visit the garage.

I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Nice. I love the chocolate there.

If you eat it all first, I'll pick some more up before getting down there one day.

Actually, with the previous "pizza touring" I have done, my dream trip is now no longer going to Napoli. It's still high, as is a more in-depth San Fransisco tour, but my #1 dream tour is a multi-day trip to many of your houses. John DellaVeccia, Larry, JConk, you Craig, Bill and Chau in New Mexico and then out west for Omid's pies is likely about as great a pizza eating trip one could embark on in the world today. I may well make that happen....and show up to your houses unannounced!  ;D

I'll leave you a key to the garage if I'm not there.

P.S. And what's with these trips to NY without telling anyone until after the fact?  What, are we not good enough for you Craig? Is this a 1%/99% thing? ;D


Scott, here you go. I really hope you can make it!

Funny you should say that though. I did ask Paulie a couple questions that he instantly recognized as DD.



I did???  I didn't even know what due diligence meant until I just checked it out in this Wiki entry:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Due_diligence

If you were going to make me an offer, I ain"t sellin'.  I'm having too much fun.

It was great having everyone stop in tonight.  Thanks for making us part of your tour.  I'm gonna have to check in here more often.  I didn't realize that I was a topic of conversation. 

Ciao,

Paulie Gee

I work in IT, mostly when people are out of the office, so it lends itself towards a bit of nocturnalism. I sleep, but it's usually during the day :)

Oh, and we're both in the same time zone, my friend, so you, too are awake at pretty late hour  ;D

Not DD to buy your place - but rather to open one of my own. You brought it up.

We all had one heck of a good time with you tonight too!

Competitive Intelligence research is more like it.  The most important things in any business is defining what is "perfection" and making that your goal in every product you turn out, but you also must have a passion for it .   

Just looking at the photos of Craig's pizzas it is evident he has done plenty of excellent  research in own garage.

Would not be surprised if we later hear that he delivered 3 or 4 pizzas, a detailed business plan and completed loan application to the bank at 11:30 - then get approved for a business loan before the close of the day.
