I'm booked for the trip. I'll get into the city around noon on Friday and don't need to head back to the airport until around 5:30pm on Sunday. I'm tied up Saturday evening, but I want to eat as much pie as humanly possible Friday afternoon/evening, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday afternoon!

Chau,

I also would like to meet you.  :)

Scott,

Thanks for saying you think you could cover Steve’s and my transportation so we wouldn’t have to ride the subway.   :)

As Steve just posted, I think Steve and I will talk about coming on the NY trip some more and wait until the dust settles where everyone is going and on what day.  I always could try to change my market day around.

Any of you NYC-area folks or others going to be around for pizza lunch on Sunday (3/11)?

Craig, I'm available Sunday afternoon (1:00 on). As of now, I'm leaning towards doing something Friday and Saturday, so, for me, I think adding Sunday to the mix would be pushing it.  I'm pretty gung ho, but I'm not that gung ho :)


Chau, when are you departing on Sunday?  Btw, the tickets have been bought, right?

If you are sure that this much pizza stuff in one city at one time would not knock the earth off its axis; then I am in.

Chau, can you do some mozz in your hotel room, before I arrive to take along as a snack?

Awesome Gene!!  This is going to be a spectacular time.  Tell you what, we can go to RD, get some curd and a few supplies and we can make mozz for everyone.

And Kelly? Where the hell are you?

Sure Chau.  I would enjoy it.  Bring a hot plate from home?  Or we could use the clothes iron (upside down).  By the time the trip is done, I'm not sure spectacular is going to touch the surface. :chef: :pizza:

That's fantastic!

This thing is getting big  :o With the distances people are traveling, I would no longer classify it as a 'Get Together' but more of an 'Expo'  ;D

Is the tour starting off early on Friday morning? If so, approximately what time?

The group is large. How about taking the subway around so we can all gab and get whisked around.....this is friggen' NYC after all. Jeez  ;D

Saturday is out for me, but Friday is not.

Am working on this as I type.

FWIW, my own opinion is that when I hear "old-school NY pizza", that only means NY-Neapolitan style pizza, which is usually, but not exclusively, coal oven pizza. Not all coal oven pizza is good (IMO only Totonno's and Patsy's are worth a trip). Not to pizza anyone off, but 99% of the NY-Style pizza I have ever eaten (a lot) is really just not that good.

Chau, are you mostly concerned with only the pizza itself, or desiring to experience the atmosphere of places some would consider to be must-do pizzerias/atmosphere type joints?
