New York City pizza is a thing of beauty. I’ve know many who have gone on diets and lost weight successfully but still won’t give up their NYC pizza. nytimes.com recently did a story on the 99¢ pizza.
I think they’re kind of late on this one. I am a connoisseur of all fine things including pizza. I can tell you 99¢ pizza is the truth and has been for some time now. It’s not delivery, and it’s not DiGiorno, but it is quality pizza. It’s usually a 2 slices and a can of soda for $2.75 which is kind of a draw back for me. I’m not a soda drinker these days but that’s the kind of drink that’s always offered in a special for some reason.
In NYC a slice usually costs around $2.75 so 99¢ for something like a decent meal is a lifesaver for the unemployed, underemployed, the pizza lovers, the cheap, the broke and the fabulous. It will cost you $4 or so to get Chinese food. It was $5 for a full special at the now defunct Noodle 36 and $3 for a vat of chicken fried rice at the Chinese bakery. Sometimes that’s steep and that’s why the 99¢ pizza spot is usually full.
In a joint like that you can make friends real quick. Everybody there tends to be in a good mood because they may actually have some money left over in their pockets to go with a full belly.
It’s catching on too. There are about 15 99¢ Pizza joints in the city. Maybe 99¢ will be in a town near you soon.
Speaking of soda I know for a fact President Barack Obama likes soda. I know it’s true cause I have pictures! You can check that out HERE and I’ve got news on one of the healthier but more controversial beverages our president likes HERE.
