Thanksgiving time...

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I must give thanks to you! Thank you for reading and following my annual quest for the 31 Days of Pizza.

I am pleased to report that for the 17th consecutive October, I have successfully eaten pizza every day of National Pizza Month, at a different pizzeria, with at least one guest.

Thank you, Joe Gillette, for inviting me to take part in your epic pizza crawl that not only took us to every borough of New York City but also raised thousands of dollars for the American Cancer Society.  Here is a film compiled of the event by filmmaker Rebecca Mae Gruber:

Beyond the five boroughs, Pizza Month 2018 took me as far away as Miami Beach, Florida.  In all, 111 slices of pizza were consumed at 38 pizzerias with over 73 pizza guests.
