Day 31, 2003: Arturo's Pizzeria (W. Village, NYC)

DAY 31: October 31st
LOCATION: Arturo's Pizzeria (106 W. Houston St., NYC)
GUEST(S): Andrew Butterworth, Tony Carnevale, Kevin Hines, Mark Lee, Todd Simmons
ORDER: 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of pepperoni, 1 slice of sausage

PIZZA REPORT: Perfect end to a perfect month. Arturo's makes a coal fired brick oven delicacy rich in everything I like. The crust is a little thicker than other coal-fired brick oven establishments (to my delight) and I love the sauce- which they layer on top of cheese in the perfect quantity. The toppings were well spaced as well. Typically, you have all this deliciousness while listening to live jazz...but apparently, not on Halloween.
  • Today marks the final day of Pizza Month '03. My guests included people that had accompanied for the first time (Todd Simmons), the second time (Mark Lee), the 6th time (Tony Carnevale), the 8th time (Andrew Butterworth), and the most times (defending pizza month guest champion, Kevin Hines; this year with 14 guest appearances)?
  • If you ever want Todd Simmons to leave you alone just say "My dick is clean". He'll get the hint.
  • Andy Butterworth, the king of pizza-eating, ate 7 slices. Above is a photo of the participants holding up the number of slices we ate.
