It can be fun (though sometimes cringe-inducing) to read things you’ve written years ago. So it’s been a bit of a blast to have stumbled across a cache of pizza writing from almost a decade ago. I’d thought that these 20 posts, originally published on AlwaysHungryNY, had been lost for good. They never got repurposed (save this one on the cold cheese slice) when we launched The Daily Meal, and despite early assurances by a former colleague, the original site was allowed to disappear. I don’t know why it took me this long to try to find them on the Wayback Machine — it certainly would have been a helpful thing to have thought of during numerous pizza caption-writing occasions over the years — but here they are now, nonetheless, and without all the weird stylization of an arbitrary stylebook (#nogrudgeshere).
Rocky Sullivan’s is hooking up with Susan Povich and Ralph Gorman of Red Hook Lobster Pound who will be hosting their “Lobstah Feast” every Friday through the end of the year. Starting at 6 pm, $23 gets you corn, coleslaw or potato salad, a 1½-pound lobster, and dessert, first come first serve.
Last Friday was the inaugural feast. Susan Povich said the Pound teamed up with Rocky’s for several reasons, “Our business is in Red Hook, we live and work in Red Hook, Rocky’s has always been a great pub, and their deck is unbelievable.” She added that the owners “are real, great people, honest, full of integrity.”
