Day 19, 2003: Last Stop Cafe (Astoria, Queens)

DAY 19: October 19th
LOCATION: Last Stop Cafe (31 St. and Ditmars subway stop, QUEENS)
GUEST(S): Kevin Cragg, Kevin Hines, Erik Tanouye
ORDER: 2 slices of cheese (one not pictured)

PIZZA REPORT: Greasy good. If you like Pizza Hut, you'll probably like Last Stop Cafe pizza. It's brick oven pan pizza. I have never seen pan pizza cooked in a brick oven, primarily because there is no need for a pan in a brick oven. The net result was a pretty tasty pizza pie that retained 100% of its grease during the cooking process. I liked it.
  • Kevin Cragg can make any waitress laugh, even if she speaks English as a second language. His sense of humor knows no cultural borders.
  • Kevin Hines now has a dartboard up in his apt with the precise regulation measurements. Yet another reason to pop on by his new Astoria pad.
  • Erik Tanouye took these pictures of pizza day #19...

  • Today I went golfing for the first time in a long while. I didn't shoot too well. Here is a my golf swing:

  • In case you were wondering, like I was, why we are referred to as "Yankees", here is the definition (courtesy of Erik Tanouye and Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary, © 1996, 1998 MICRA, Inc.).
    Yankee - \Yan"kee\, n. [Commonly considered to be a corrupt pronunciation of the word English, or of the French word Anglais, by the native Indians of America. According to Thierry, a corruption of Jankin, a diminutive of John, and a nickname given to the English colonists of Connecticut by the Dutch settlers of New York.
