I was personally very torn about whether or not to eat here, because I've banished "Pizza Delis" from the Slice Harvester Kingdom, but I also need to make an accurate assessment of where the best dollar slice is! So we went in.
This pizza wasn't horrible, nor was it especially good. Eliza said, "I guess if I only had a dollar and I was hungry I wouldn't be that mad about this." Although BBC was visibly angry with every bite he took. There is nothing really worthwhile to say about this slice. It wasn't good. Whatever.
Across the street was a rather garish awning for "Deno's Party House USA," a bikini bar. I had never heard of a bikini bar, and I thought it was a bar where you could go in wearing a bathing suit and maybe they like, put sand on the floor. Like that weird Midtown bar inside a pool that all the punks used to sneak into, except without the pool. But Eliza told me that it's actually a bar where all the patrons are wearing normal clothes and the staff have to wear bikinis. Woah, weird.
Luckily, it was closed for good. I hope that if anyone found it to be a positive work environment, they have found a new place of employment, but for some reason I doubt this was a nurturing, sex-positive place to work and I bet it was more of a total shitty oppressive bummer. The awning is undoubtedly really cool, though.
We noticed on the window that they advertised "WI-FI ACCESS". Can you imagine being the kind of fucking total scumbag yuppie fucking shitbreather who works in this neighborhood and then afterwards comes to Deno's in your $2600 suit to sit around and drink Mai-Tais served to you by struggling actresses wearing bikinis because they can't make their rent while you are sitting there on your laptop nonchalantly slamdunking the Henderson account? I am getting mad just thinking about this. Sick fucking society, I'll tell you.
