Update:  It look's like the final piece of the puzzle is in place.  Katherine from Roberta's informed me that they are confident that they can accommodate us in their Tiki Bar, an enclosed area at the back of the restaurant.

Almost didn't make it out of Albuquerque this morning.  Winds up to 60mph and too dangerous for take off.  Flight was delayed 3 hours with a good chance for cancellation.  I'm in Dallas now waiting for my flight to NY.  Will get in late, but get in nonetheless.

John's here a map of the whole trip:

Map

If you're meeting us at Totonno's and don't mind shelling out extra for bridge tolls, then I think the easiest route is through Staten Island:

Map

You basically just find your way to the Turnpike, take the exit for route 278 going towards Verrazano Bridge/Goethals Bridge and then stay on 278 all the way to Brooklyn. Once you get into Brooklyn you get onto the Belt Parkway and you're pretty much there. Your GPS, if you have it on at the beginning of the trip, will try to take you into Manhattan, but if you keep it off and turn it on once you get a little south on the Turnpike (Elizabeth), it should work perfectly for getting you the rest of the way.
So organized... Cracks me up. You can see my old stompin' ground in your second map. Pearl River NY.

Bus did not leave Baltimore until 730. If I get to NYC by 10:45, I may race down to Artihcoke to catch up at 11:10. Will call upon arrival into NYC.

Why I just didn't take the Acela is beyond me. -k

1 st to post :P hehe
What a great trip! while the others are probably at Paulie gees as I type. I am home on the couch contemplating how much great pizza I just ate. Resting up for tomorrow with hopes of being able to move around the court.
That new camera worked perfect ! But the first charge of what came in the battery lasted only totonnos and L&B then dead ! Silly me should have known
Everybody had a wonderful time and really great to meet Chau, Kelly, Nick, Adam (slice) , Gene, and see the  last tour buddies Norma, Steve, Craig, Scott, and we had the pros with us also Frank from Vesta and Paulie Gee from well paulie gees! Look for pics in the new L&B hat Paulie and I got the last 2 hats :chef:
much much more to come. Good night

Yes having a really great time.  Meeting these folks was just like seeing friends Ive known a long time.  Everyone is so down to earth, definitely my kind of crowd.  Ate a ton of great pizza today.   Might post about the pizza later too.  ;)

Props to Scott for doing a phenomenal job organizing and driving us around.  Thank you to all the other drivers as well.  We made it to all the planned spots today.  Ate way too much pizza but I'm not complaining at all.  :P

Would have been nice to meet more folks in person, but the crowd we had was really great.

I also had a great time and had the chance to eat some different pizzas!  :) It was really nice to get to meet Chau, Gene, Nick, Adam, Kelley, Dave (dhs), John W. (johnnydoubleu), Frank, Paulie Gee, and got to see my pizza friends from the last pizza tour,  Steve, John C., Craig, and Scott.

I also ate way too much pizza, but I enjoyed all of them.  :P

Also special thanks to Scott for organizing and driving and thanks to John C., Nick, and Frank for also driving.
