    I would have loved to come to the revival of CUNY Pie, especially because you’re in my nabe. But it the Friday night before the Memorial Day weekend and we have plans to get out of town. Sorry to miss it.

    Prepare to be bored as I tell you all why J&P’s is so so much better than Denino’s!

    Thanks for the invite, I’m in!

    Sorry for not registering earlier (childcare issues I couldn’t work out in time). If it’s not too late, I can make it tonight. I’ll go on Eventbrite.

    If I didn’t already have tickets to see Eddie Izzard tonight with my older son, I’d be there. Looking forward to future opportunities.

    Hi Matt and Pizza Lovers,

    I’m gonna try and make it. Right now, I’m at about 55% chance of making it.

    Best,

    Hi All,

    Thanks for all the enthusiasm! I need to note, though, that we’ve now run into a problem. When I called today to up the numbers from the RSVPs we had yesterday (10) to the numbers we have today (17 !), Joe and Pat’s told us that they would only up the reservation if we agreed to a minimum of $60 per person.

    I told them in a few different ways how crazy that seemed to me, waxed on eloquently about the august pizza-eating tradition that CUNY Pie represents, and gestured towards the buzz that could be created from a positive CUNY Pie review. Sadly, they were unswayed and obstinate, so I cancelled the reservation.

    We can still try to go there and take our chances on getting a table, but I, for one, have no desire to give our business to an establishment with policies like that. So, a few of us are now thinking hard, and quickly, about whether we can relocate tonight’s gathering. Suggestions welcome. To best accommodate those who already said they’d come, we’d need a place in the same general area, and ideally someplace large enough to seat such a large group.

    Lombardi’s came to mind for me, but let’s all put our thinking caps on.

    Best,

    Matt
