Adventure #66: Jack Pizza Company (Redux)

We weren't meaning to head back to Jack when we headed out on this adventure. We were downtown, seeking strange new pizza at places like Hoek's Death Metal Pizza and Pizzeria Paparazzi.  Neither were open at 7:30 on a Thursday evening, and hell, I'm not sure if Pizzeria Paparazzi even exists. We found an empty storefront with no hours listed. It's the only place I've ever seen that has a question mark on its Yelp map.

We weren't going to go adventuring without getting pizza, so we went on a clarification mission to Jack. A clarification mission is an adventure meant to clear up disagreement or lingering questions about a pizzeria. Sometimes we're just trying to see if the quality has changed over time. In this case, we'd both had different experiences after our initial visit to Jack in 2010. I'd been a time or two and felt about the same as I ever did. Karin had been back and had a not-so-great pie. It was time to reconcile our opinions! [Disclaimer: these pictures are terrible due to dive bar lighting]

Adventure #65: Pieous

Pieous delivers what it promises, a religious experience through food. From the mozzarella that is made in-house to the perfect sour-dough crust to the chocolate pecan pie that made Ian's toes literally curl up at just a single bite, this place must be tasted to be believed.
