Connecticut mini-crawl Sunday August 19
« on: July 31, 2018, 10:24:02 PM »
So Deb, aka deb415611, and I were thinking that maybe the time is right for one-day pizza crawl in and around New Haven,  maybe  branching out as time permits. Deb found a great article about the state's best, and in addition to the obvious choices there are some surprises.

If you'd be interested please reply and we'll go from there.   :)  This could be fun!

Just saw that the Chapel St. Bridge in New Haven is closed until September, will have to keep that in mind for travel routes

Wait - I just realized -- if I wrap up work on my time machine I don't have to stress about the impossible deadline you have given me for my transporter development - problem solved Deb  :-D

no, she'd love to join but she's a soph at cornell. All our kids participated in summer programs at yale, which is how we came to love the new haven style. I ran into a couple of guys from new haven while shopping arthur ave in the bronx, they felt modern appiza was the best.

anyhow, let me speak with swmbo, maybe we can drop her off on sat and join on sunday. I know bill is semi-retired, I'm probably retired, wonder if midweek works? less lines, less traffic...

I've been holding out hope, but I am still a probably not. On the road for work this week and there is some other stuff going on. I've been to Sally's, Pepe's and Modern. Definitely want to add Zupardi's to my been there list and Bar sounds interesting too. Don't want to definitely say no, but as the magic 8 ball would say, Outlook not so good.

thanks for the link matt, yesterday my son asked if I could drop him off at the stamford train station next week, depending on timing, I'll give it a try.

 there's also colony in stamford, they serve a hot oil pie. Happily, we had a client who loved the place, so I've been there many times.
