Day 28, 2005: Grimaldi's Pizzeria (Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn)

DAY 28: October 28th
LOCATION: Grimaldi's Pizzeria (Fulton St under the Brooklyn Bridge, BROOKLYN)
GUEST(S): Terry Jinn, Kitzi Taylor, Maddy Mako, Jen MacNeil, Tony Carnevale, Matt Pack, Alix Sternberg
ORDER: 3 slices cheese, 1 slice of pepperoni

PIZZA REPORT: The best! Nothing beats Grimaldi's pizza. My favorite part of the pizza is the everything. The pizza is made with the freshest and most flavorful ingredients including fresh mozzarella cheese, spice enhanced tomato sauce from Italy, seemingly hand-picked basil leaves and dough born to hold it all together. My slices were coal fired to perfection (yet again) and somehow managed to meet my astronomically high expectations. In my experience, expecting a lot tends to lead to dissappointment. Not so! at Grimaldi's. Go in expecting the greatest tasting pizza you have ever had and I doubt you will leave unsatisfied. Grimaldi's for president!
  • Jen MacNeil and Maddy Mako walked over the Brooklyn Bridge to get to Grimaldi's. If you haven't done it yet, you should.
  • Kitzi (my mom) and I went to the Whitney Museum of Art before pizza day and after work. This meant we had 20 minutes to tour one of the most fascinating museums in New York City. We saw the Oscar Bluemner exhibit, some Georgia O'Keeffes, a Hopper or two, and a Pollack before sprinting out to Brooklyn. I intend to go back only next time I'll give myself at least a half an hour.
  • Terry Jinn and Tony Carnevale are very punctual people. Maybe it's because they are constantly organizing things. Whatever the reason, punctuality is a good trait!
  • While Maddy Mako was discussing her intention to be a St. Paulie girl for Halloween, Kitzi suggested the possibility as going as the 5 of spades. Apparently the costume is less elaborate; only requiring a pair of black gloves and some black shoes.
  • Matt Pack and Alix Sternberg arrived too late to join us for pizza but came with us to get ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream factory afterward.
