Pizza Month 2014

Happy Pizza Month 2014!
October is National Pizza Month. In order to observe this month "the right way," I intend to eat at least one slice of pizza every day of it. I hope to learn from past experience (Pizza Month '02, '03, '04, '05, '06, '07, '08, '09, '10, '11, '12, '13) and make Pizza Month 2014 not just the latest, but the greatest 31 Days of Pizza known to [this] man.

In addition to the NYC area, my 2014 pizza campaign has me spending a week of the month in Arizona and Las Vegas.  Rumor has it, the pizza out there is as great as the canyons are grand.  It will be my wife and my first trip to the Southwest together so please send recommendations!

My rules are clear, and I am determined to adhere to all three of them. They are…
(1) Eat at least one slice of pizza a day
(2) With at least one other person
(3) At a different pizza place each day

As with past years, I encourage everyone reading this to eat pizza every day of October as well. If you can't stomach 31 days, then settle for 30 (or 29, or 28…) Also, if you are in the NYC metropolitan area, know a great place to eat pizza, and don't mind the company…then please invite me along! No matter how you plan to observe National Pizza Month 2014, always feel free to follow me in my pursuit of the 31 days on this journal. For a preview of what is to come, you may want to view the archived Pizza Months Past (2002 - 2013) journals as a reference.


Two other items that will make the 2014 pursuit unique.  I am thrilled to announce the return of my one man pizza month storytelling show called SLICES OF LIFE on October 27th at 7pm at the Magnet Theater. Yes, there will be free pizza provided by Slicey award winner NY Pizza Suprema. Please make your reservation now!

Another less thrilling item on the Pizza Month 2014 agenda is knee surgery.  Apparently meniscus tears don't heal no matter how much pizza you eat. I know that I am not allowed to eat the day of the surgery and recognize that I may have to finish out the month on crutches, but I am committed to conquering the 31 Days of Pizza for the 13 straight year!

Feel free to follow my progress here!
