wat? pbal!

so what about the whole "there are a million awesome Mom & Pop pizza places in NYC that are better than anyone else in world" thing? you really go with chain pizza? idk about there obviously, but where i am basically all chain pizza is turrrrrible, and Dominoes is like the nut low of it.

actually Flying Wedge is a good chain, but they're just a small, local one.

unless i just got leveled, if so then wp i guess. but i wanted to talk about pizza anyway, so w/e.

LOL_LDO,
Probably not inspiration in the way you want, but a great "Chicken Soup for the Soul type Book" is "he Soul of Baseball: A Road Trip Through Buck O'Neil's America" by SE favorite Joe Posnanski.

well i won't say it was because of the animal hospital but i was a little suspicious which is why i never ate there. maybe it was great though. it seemed very popular.

edit: since this is the liveblog thread i’m also gonna provide a story about me never eating there. so a couple weeks after i moved there i was hungry and had previously noticed that it was a very popular takeout place located 2 or 3 minutes from my apartment. as i start walking up to the door i see it is packed, like 30-40 people inside at least. and as you can tell from the pic it’s not a large store.

as i start to open the door, every single one of those 30-40+ people inside immediately turns and starts to stare at me. maybe i was wrong but i took this as a sign to not open that door and lamely pretend that i was actually looking for the bank next door.

does this make me racist? and if so, how much?

It's hard to find a great pizza place most places in the South. You can find them but it isn't easy. Not like basically anywhere else in the country. I think Southerners are content with Pizza Hut.

I went to PF Chang's after having not been there in forever, **** is gross. I remember once upon a time I thought it was good. Then I ate actual good Chinese food. Definitely not returning.

Anthony Bourdain stopped at a lake trout place when did his Baltimore episode, and it was packed. Looked decent with hot sauce and mac & cheese/greens sides tbh.

Edit: PF Chang's=eating a plateful of salt.

Did you know that in 2008 Mcdonalds made as much as BK, KFC, Arby's, Taco Bell, Subway and Starbucks combined? That's WANGZ level dominance.

i know it doesn't seem like it could possibly happen, but people in nyc do occasionally venture outside nyc. they may have experience with chain pizza as a result.

as a kid, i would probably choose pizza hut over mom and pop pizza. i was a pretty dumb kid tho (also we didn't have pizza hut)

Buffalo wings are fried pieces of chicken covered in sauce. There is zero technique involved.

We got bbq here too bro, some good, some terrible. What's your point? Are you trying to tell me I can only get good wings in the region filled with fat white guys with terrible accents?
