Re:

Yes! And we even got to see *you*! Thanks so much for letting us descend upon you with no notice and no planning! And thanks for the fantabulous directions! :)

Re:

Ah Pizza! That's a long way to go for a slice!

Re:

Flatbush has a kosher brick-oven pizza place that's supposed to be fantabulous. We are SO going back there to try it. We went the safe-route and had Chinese, forgetting that we have perfectly delightful Chinese food in Baltimore, so we should have tried for something we can't get here. But that's okay. We will return!

Anyway, if you think that's a long way to go for a slice of pizza... I'll try and dig out my entry from two years ago from my first trip to Crown Heights. Bea and I went for the sole purpose of finding kosher doritos for me (we never found them) and Cholov Yisroel cheese puffs for bea (we found lots and bought lots). Along the way we saw a few friends of Bea's, but that was spur of the moment. The real purpose of the trip was to find kosher cheese puffs and doritos. :)

Re:

My shul is organizing a bus trip to Brooklyn/Borough Park in March, I think. The sisterhood is sponsering. Not sure if I want to go up with a group that big, but if I get more info would you like to go?

Re:

Sure! Assuming it's at a time that I can go. I rarely turn down a chance to go to NY.

Re:

Alas. We had no pizza. But we shall return!

Re:

It's a long story and not very exciting. :) It boils down to Bea and I had a friend who had a banquet to be at, so we drove her up there, dropped her off at the banquet and then had 5 or 6 hours to kill, so we went in search of REAL FOOD. And along the way, we got to see mamadeb and her hubby. A good time was had by all.

Re:

Anywho, I'm now back from Brooklyn. Had a great time. Got home at a ridiculous hour of the morning. Very tired now. Hope all is well with you.

Re:

oops!

I forgot to reply to this. I do hope you'll forgive me.

I could always give you the lame-ass response of "go look at my LJ!"

umm, currently, rather stressed -- work is going quite nuts re: amount of work required vs. time to do it it, my cat has cancer, and life has just generally been rollercoaster-ish since the beginning of this year. How's that?

I am occasionally found in Brooklyn because bobodacious lives in Brooklyn these days. I think you might have met her years ago at my grandfather's house, when you stopped by with (I think it was Steve Litterst, of all people) one day. I go up to visit ever x number of weeks or so. And, also, there is the pizza!
