New York City - Day Three (and four)
Today was "Scott's Pizza Tour" and hanging out with TPR friends! Probably the least "gay" day of the trip...although there was quite a bit of gayness today!
(We met Scott's girlfriend...so we know he's not gay...)
Scott's Pizza Tour has become one of our favorite things to do in New York City. So much so that we now included it on TPR trips when in the area! Check out the photos below, and to book a tour, click: http://www.scottspizzatours.com
Currently on Scott's Pizza Tour! Scott's enthusiasm for pizza makes for some amazing expressions!
Here is the location of the first pizzeria in NYC! (Yes, we know it's a bar now...it USED to be a pizza place!)
Our first stop on Scott's Pizza Tour is the famous Lombardi's on Spring & Mott!
Renee loves hanging out with her ultimate best friend in the entire world, Reed!
Hooray! Pizza arrives! It's amazing!!!
Scott can down an entire pie in twenty-seven seconds!
Reed is rockin' the fold (and a rockin' Newsies hat) on Scott's Pizza Tour!
TPR members are "pizza buddies" with Scott!
Elissa got the bonus slice at Lombardi's!
Backstage oven tour at Lombardi's!
What is KidTums drawing?
It's "Scott's Pizza Tour" as seen by a five year old! There's Scott, the pizza, the oven, the peel! Amazing!
This is a perfect, to scale, drawing of Lombardi's pizza oven!
OMG!!! They are making fresh mozzarella! This is like porn for Scott!
TPR fresh mozzarella huddle!
Our next stop on the tour was actually a factory that makes pizza ovens!
If the pizza oven says "Bari" on it, they built it right here in this room!
Which is more sexy? Scott or the pizza oven? Vote now!
Scott is the most knowledgeable pizza geek ever! He could identify flour bags as we passed by!
If you want an awesome pizza cutter, you need one of these!
"It's a Dexter P177a - GET ONE!!!"
Our next stop on Scott's Pizza Tour... Pizza Box on Bleeker and Macdougal.
OMG! PIzza being made...LIVE!!! This is much better than any show with Liza Minnelli!
Oh, man... This is going to be amazing!
Second date for Reed and Renee! How many to go until he gets to third base???
"THERE'S A BUG ON YOUR PIZZA! LET ME KILL IT WITH MY SUPER AWESOME PIZZA LASER!!!"
"According to my awesome pizza laser - I have killed 918 pizza bugs!"
Renee ditched Reed for pizza! (smart move!)
"Ok...pizza in mouth...get ready....PULL!!!"
Fran has a pretty good cheese pull going on!
OMG! Fran has twelve inches! And his cheese pull is nearly thirteen!
Round two of the cheese pull contest. GO!!!
Renee looks slightly jealous of Stacey's cheesiness.
Scott does the cheese pull!
OM NOM NOM!!!
Pizza slice #2 - Low moisture mozzarella, gas fueled deck oven, twelve Minute bake.
Ryan has seven and a half inches!
Renee gets the bonus slice from Scott! Hope she doesn't get cut off!
KidTums loves Scott's Pizza Tour!
"It's time to learn about dough!"
"Dough tossing is just for show... It doesn't really do anything." (And Scott is pretty sexy at it!)
SCOTT!!! DO NOT EAT PIZZA OFF ROBB'S ARM!!! IT'S NOT SANITIZED!!!
KidTums is a future pizza chef!
Our last stop was John's Pizzeria... Which was started by a guy who once worked at Lombardi's.
Scott gives us the history of the NY Pizza "family tree."
Is this pizza ready to eat? It IS!!!
Scott serving up TPR members another slice!
Oh, no! Stacey is getting some "tip sag" (Real pizza geek jargon!)
Fran wins the ultimate cheese pull competition with thirteen inches!
But wait!!!! Some random person takes the lead by total surprise with TWENTY SEVEN inches of cheese pull!!!
The TPR girls of New York on Scott's Pizza Tour!
Thank you to Scott for another awesome NYC pizza tour! See you again in July!
Now that we're loaded up on awesome pizza...time for dessert!
Elissa LOVED the cake batter cupcake!
I kinda want to test this out!
Oh, no! The report got gay again! (and Fran got REALLY happy!)
I wish all buildings in the world could look like this.
KidTums getting some time in a traditional New York City park.
Just in case she forgot her name.
This might end up being the most gay thing we did the entire trip!
Drinking Stella and singing show tunes around a piano! Could it get any gayer??? (Seriously, though, this bar was really fun if you're into theater at all...but it was filled with NYC gay theater snobs!)
Time for beer! (that's not gay....right?)
Elysian Pumpkin Ale. and Coney Island Geektoberfest! Yum!!!
Reed trying really hard to figure out Emoji! LOL!!!
I'm sure Russell will appreciate my alterations here!
Even though this may be the least gay thing we did this trip...it was still pretty gay!
Now THIS is my kind of place!
Everyone needs a crepe at 1:42am!
It's 2:00am and we're having some Sicilian in honor of Elissa!
Our final day in New York City! Trip so far has been a huge success! Newsies, Evita, Scott's Pizza Tour - all awesome!
Hanging out at the Lexington Ave street fair today!
Anyone interested? Maybe we can start a TPR chapter?
Newsies taking a break from selling papes!
Mmmmmm.... New York City version of DLR's Naples & Epcot's Via Napoli! (Yes, it's the same company!)
Newsies gotta get me shoes cleaned after stepping through Pulitzer's crap!
I'm told this building is full of shoes and tax evasion.
Another NYC cupcake credit for us!
Not as good as Molly's, but still really tasty!
They are like little "cupcake shots!"
Only in America would you need the rule "So not occupy more than one seat."
I think Reed may be taking his love for Newsies a *little* too far!
Was a great trip to New York City! It's one of our favourite places in the world!
