Regarding the pepperoni, I have always called it 'Buffalo Style Pepperoni' because 95% of the local pizzerias in the region have those cupped pepperoni. I love it, personally. Growing up I never realized it was a thing for this region; I thought most pizza was like that.

'Buffalo’s pepperoni is slightly thicker than in most places, and cooked more, with the result that it sort of curls up into a saucer shape, crispy with a bit of oil in it, what is locally known as “cup and char” pepperoni. It has more flavor than the bland flaccid disks many pizzerias across American now use"

The cookie dough looks amazing too. One of our local malls just opened up a shop with the same concept, I wonder if it compares.

I've only seen a few touring Broadway shows but your report was great and makes me want to catch a few more shows. I live about 6 hours away from NYC but have only been a handful of times. The pizza tour sounds great and I'll definitely look out for that ticket outlet you mentioned for cheaper tickets. Unfortunately that's the one thing that keeps me from going to see more theatre but I guess I never really looked for the best ways to get tickets, either.

Love the cupcake sign!

^ I guess that I never knew the char-cup pepperoni was a Buffalo thing, but that one pizza shot in Robb's report certainly looked like that was what they used. I agree that it is a lot more flavorful than regular thin, flat pepperoni.

Hmm, I'll have to ask Scott as he's the pizza expert, but I don't recall him saying that style of pepperoni originated in Buffalo. I remember him saying the "curl" had something to do with the casing that was used for the pepperoni and it's usually a sign of higher quality. He said that most pizza places don't use it because it's more expensive, but you'll find it in many NYC pizzerias because they need to have higher quality to sell slices with all the competition.

So When exactly is the New York Wheel scheduled to open? I do think it will provide for some pretty amazing views honestly and Im looking forward to it, I definitely need to get out to staten island more, I have been to that borough by far the least and thinking now about it especially since its so far out for me I think ive only been maybe two or three times, I really need to explore Staten Island more and think I will make getting out and exploring staten island a top priority for me
