According to many unofficial websites, October is National Pizza Month. In order to observe this month "the right way", I intend to eat at least a slice of pizza a day. I hope to learn from past experience (Pizza Month '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08) and make Pizza Month '09 not just the latest, but the greatest 31 Days of Pizza known to [this] man.
My rules are clear, and I am determined to adhere to all three of them. They are…
(1) Eat at least one slice of pizza a day
(2) With at least one other person
(3) At a different pizza place each day
As with past years, I encourage everyone reading this to eat pizza every day of October as well. If you can't stomach 31 days, then settle for 30 (or 29, or 28…) Also, if you are in the NYC metropolitan area, know a great place to eat pizza, and don't mind the company…then please invite me along! No matter how you plan to observe National Pizza Month '09, always feel free to follow me in my pursuit of the 31 days on this journal. For a preview of what is to come, you may want to view the archived Pizza Month '08, Pizza Month '07, Pizza Month '06, Pizza Month '05, Pizza Month '04, Pizza Month '03, and Pizza Month '02 journals as a reference.
ANNOUNCEMENT: My eighth annual celebration of National Pizza Month (i.e. October) will be tracked here. Last year, Pizza Month '08 was a video journal of some of the greatest pizza places in and around New York City, Chicago, and New Orleans. This year I intend to eat pizza at places I have never been before but will likely include some of my old favorites.
Come back here each day to follow my progress toward my goal of conquering the 31 Days of Pizza!
