Sido Gourmet Pizza: "Maybe at least the falafel is good."
Cory and I were really excited as we walked to Sido Gourmet, because it had been listed in the phone book as "Ocean's 11 Pizzeria" and we were like, "alright! this place has gotta be awesome if some cornball named it after a Rat Pack movie!" but then we got there and it was this atrocious hellhole you see pictured above.
This slice had nothing going for it. Cory is pointing at the area on the top there that looks like a zombie's face or like road rash or something. He looked at that and said, "when I was a little kid pizza that looked like that used to gross me out so bad." This slice is too oily and it looks gross and the crust is just a tacked on afterthought. Cory said, "I don't even know how to describe this travesty." We each took two bites of this slice and then we took it outside and left it in a phone booth and went a bought a ton of candy. I think it's pertinent to add that Cory attempted to fold this slice, to illustrate what I had been "doing wrong," and it totally crumbled to bits. And he still blamed it on the slice.
