Ban SantaCon and Seth Rogen said...

Gross. Seth Rogen must stop making movies. There's no telling how many drunken Bros are going to imitate him by trampling through mangers and barfing in churches. And those "the Jews killed Jesus" jokes are old. Is this what's consided humor these days?

that movie looks awful... I'd much rather watch an uncomfortable comedy like Rick Alverson's "Entertainment".

11:54 - For Jews who don't know anything about the history of Judaism this is unfortunately what passes for humor.

Okay, I'd rather have two more pizzerias than two more sports bars...but can anyone tell me where to get a really good SLICE, not a sit-down whole pizza? I liked South Brooklyn Pizza but they're gone..not surprisingly.

Anon. 6:00, I highly recommend Nonna's, which went in recently at 201 Avenue A between 12th and 13th. The owner's name is Astro, he's a total sweetheart,and he told me that all the ingredients used - flour, sauce, cheese, etc. - is sourced from Italy. Get a slice of the "Grandma" pizza, you won't be sorry.

I will second the Nonna's recommendation

Thanks! Just tried Nonna's and it was really good! Will definitely make that my regular pizza stop.
