Day 7, 2004: Arturo's Pizzeria (W. Village, NYC)

DAY 7: October 7th
LOCATION: Arturo's Pizzeria (106 W. Houston St, NYC)
GUEST(S): Rachael Mason, Jo Miller, Carl Arnheiter, Andrew Butterworth, Petra Boden, Tony Carnevale
ORDER: 3 slices of Sausage and Peppers, 2 slices of Pepperoni

PIZZA REPORT: Classic! As hackneyed as that word has become, it is the single word that comes to mind when I reflect on the pizza I ate at Arturo's Pizzeria. Coal-fired (and delicately singed) crust with fresh toppings, Italian tomato sauce, and just the right amount of mozzarella cheese. This was my first slice of sausage and was also my second and third slice of sausage and peppers.
  • Andrew Butterworth arrived sporting his Bill Mueller influenced salt and pepper goatie. He intends to keep it as long as the Red Sox are in the playoffs. Here is a photo of Andy's idol.

    The goatie has brought with it very inventive thinking. For instance, I witnessed Andy jump starting his old piece of gum with a listerine breath strip.
  • Tony followed doctor's orders and ate several slices of a bacon pizza. In this case, the doctor is Carl Arnheiter.
  • Jo Miller arrived after we had already started. She was a first time attendee of Variety Underground and Pizza Month - all in one day.
  • Petra Boden really enjoys the fall.
  • Rachael Mason used to go to Arturo's as a child and recommended the sausage and peppers pizza. She also has perfect eye sight.
