Another Sunday, another round of Football and Pizza. This time Pizza Hut was tested. We ordered online again but somehow it got screwed up and we had to call and re-order. Not a good start.

The current promotion is $10 for any size, crust, and toppings. Three large Pies and Breadsticks finally came (also some bonus Wings because of the mix up). First impression: fairly good. For sure better than Domino's. The Sauce, Cheese and Crust are all superior. The Hut has never done Veggies well but everything was still satisfactory.

The key is to get the Pan style. I made the terrible mistake of getting Hand-tossed. Next time.

The Super Bowl is in two weeks. But the Pizza contract will go out to my favorite joint from back in Michigan. All hail Howie.

snow days


Today is the start of Sundance. I will be traveling to Park City later this week to catch the last days of the film festival. I'm excited to see what this little ski town has to offer. Maybe something delicious.

I can't wait.

we took him there anyways


Four hungry dudes arguing about where to go. "Somewhere none of us have been". We drive and drive looking.

We pass Green Leaves on Hillhurst and declare the search is over. The place is Vegan which pleases everyone except for one, but we force him inside.

For no reason, wicked looking guitars line the walls. We sit and open the phone book sized menus. Too much to pick from. I can't decide. Send the waitress away. She comes back and I panic. Alex orders a Wrap and a bowl of Soup. Jord gets the Breakfast Burrito and some Fried Tofu to start. The Meat-eater, Forest, decides on the Pancake special and all the attention comes back to me. I end up doing the Soy Chicken Dinner.

Food comes out. Everything looks good. We say grace and dig in.

I tried some of each plate save for Alex's Wrap (greedy asshole). My food was pretty good. The fake Fried Chicken was enjoyable but a bit strange because it was almost too much like real Meat. It kinda freaked me out. Overall positive, but I need to get deeper into the menu before a full opinion can be reached.

u north


The Lady and I went downtown to Royal Clayton's. Cool looking pub with a good Beer selection. We tired the Fish and Chips and had a few pints. I really wanted to love the food, but it was only alright. The Fish pieces were huge but the Batter could have been lighter and crispier. The Fries just decent enough.

They offer all sorts of other Pub fair which may or may not be good. Come here if you are looking for a drink in the industrial part of town. Perfect for a pre-heist meeting.

ketchup and cardboard


Ordered some of Domino's new and improved Pizza. $5.99 gets you a medium, two topping pie. A group of us got three Pizzas and Cheesy Bread to soak up some of the beer while we watched football. We ordered online so we did not have to talk to anyone.

The verdict.

Slightly better than before, but not great. The biggest improvement is the Crust. Which is less chewy and more flavorful. The Sauce is still too sweet but seems tastier. The Cheese is a let down. All in all, it is still crappy Pizza. But it is cheap crappy Pizza. So the situation may arise where I could see myself ordering it again.

No regrets

kiss from a rose on the grave


Dinner with Becky at Desert Rose. Nice outdoor area makes it look prime for Brunch but we sat indoors cause of the cold.

We did the Blue Crab Cakes, bowls of the Lobster Bisque and the Roasted Eggplant Soup to start and then moved to a pair of Salads (the Greek and House). For a light meal, the bill sure did climb fast. Everything was tasty but nothing special. They do offer a large Wine menu and a full bar.

I'll try this place again for some weekend Breakfast and maybe that will change things.

My main beef with this place is that big 'artistic' rose sculpture thing out front. It looks terrible. I hate it. The more I talk about it, the more angry I get.

Alright, I need to leave and calm down.
