Pardon My

My recent contribution to's blog is an entry about French pizza (aka tarte flambee). Coincidentally, I am heading to Paris, France next week so please let me know if there is something in France (aside from the obvious) that I cannot miss.  Also, if you know of a good place to grab a slice, please contact me!

Merilu Sells Roman Style Pizza "by the meter"

I recently visited Merilu Pizza Al Metro and recommended it on  The link to the blog entry is below.  Apparently, "Al Metro" means "by the meter" which, considering it's pre-cut, it's just a fancy way of saying "by the slice."  Merilu is in my neighborhood so you can bet I'll be back.  I visited Rome and yet it took a trip down the street to find out just what Roman style pizza means.

The blog entry goes more in depth about it but it does leave out one thing - my favorite photo.

Here is a photo of my cat Maryloo with the pizza from Merilu --  Meriloo squared!

Got Pizza Socks? I do.

Thanks to an improv comedian named John Mabey, I am now the proud owner of pizza socks.  I've been told they are not edible.  That said, the more I wear them, the less tempted I am to eat them.  Here's a photo of them.

The gift was bittersweet though.  John Mabey and his spouse are headed off to England indefinitely making the improv show at my monthly comedy show called Variety Underground, his last performance on this side of the pond.  My spouse, Robin Rothman, also performed at the venue on the same day and so not end on a sad note, here is a link to her latest (and, in my opinion, greatest) original song...(click to play the song)
