Mudhoney!!! and Pizza

Last week, G and I went to go see MUDHONEY at Music Hall of Williamsburg, which was an AWESOME show. Worth it even though I destroyed my glasses.

Note the arm (not Mark Arm) of someone ELSE's glasses that met the same fate.
WATCH THAT VIDEO!! MUDHONEY ROOLZ also you will understand why I needed to let my glasses fly under the feet of the crowd.
Anyway, Vinnie's Pizzeria is really close to the Music Hall, SO:

                                                               "The Slice is Right"
                                      Banner from Lost, or something, I never watched it.
                                                       Pizza Pope! (With googly eye)
                                           my last photo with glasses on, eyeing the pizzas.
                               Greg's BBQ (seitan) chicken slice with Daiya, my veggie slice.
For a much better review of this place, read Abby Bean's post. What was I thinking? A veggie slice with no cheese, AND no garlic knots? Anyway, Mudhoney.

  1. Actually, your slice looks pretty awesome. Of course it could be awesomer with cheese and knots... How have I never noticed "The Slice is Right"? R.I.P. glasses.

  2. Your veggie slice looks excellent — I admire a pizza place that knows how to layer on the toppings. I just hate when there's a spare piece of broccoli and mushroom here and there. Ugh. Bummer about the glasses but at least you really enjoyed the concert.

    1. I'm usually a toppings kinda gal but I'd like a decent regular slice every now and then.

  4. How awesome that you got to see Mudhoney!! Too bad your glasses had to pay the price but I can imagine it was worth it :) The slices look delicious, look at all of those veggies on your slice! Vegan garlic knots?! I've gotta get there! Yum.

  6. You got your pizza just the way I like it! Lots of veggies & no cheese, although I have been known to get cheese from time to time.

    Too bad about your glasses but I'm glad that you had fun at the show!

    1. I'd like to try a slice with cheese! I may have only gotten it once or something.

  7. Time for Lasik! (Do I recommend the Lasik too much? Too bad).

    I could literally inhale that pizza in seconds flat.

    I'm getting too long in the tooth to accept new music. You get Lasik and I'll listen to Mudhoney.

    1. I've never heard you recommend Lasik before! Have you had it?? I've thought about it but I'm scared. Also my new glasses are BLUE and SO COOL. Still to come: am I cool enough to pull them off?

  8. That's my kind of pope. No capitals for the pope in my world.

  9. A good concert always ends with a little damage somewhere. ;) Pizza post-show is a great way to end the evening! Next time, Daiya cheese and veggies (and garlic knots)!

    1. Truth! Next time, DEFINITELY garlic knots! I hear they come with marinara sauce.

  10. I haven't thought about Mudhoney since high school! OH MAN. And I am also jealous of that fine NYC pizza. California has many things, but decent pizza is not one of them.

  11. Q: is vegan pizza so alternative a pizza ("pizza" in essence being made in large part by cheese) as to preclude it from "NYC pizza" status and the notions associated with such renown, and if so does that make NYC vegan pizza inferior to that of a more "alternative" minded environment regardless of its pizza renown and if so where is that environment?

    1. IMHO vegan pizza would be precluded from NYC Pizza status.

      Where to find better vegan pizza? That I do not know. I've only had vegan pizza in the DC area and it cant hold a candle to the real stuff.

    2. NYC pizza is all about the crust; vegan pizza remains part of the lexicon- with the added bonus of not having to have stolen calves milk to make it.

    3. Vegan pizza is inherently new york pizza.
      New york has everything and anything you could ever want or imagine, it is just a matter of finding it. Because there is such a thing as vegan pizza in new york, and not only one option but actually many venues and varations thereof it is therefore "new york" as oppossed to any other town/city where there would only be one sad pizza without cheese and a few canned mushrooms as their only vegan pizza option.

      Ps "viva herbal pizzeria" in the east village does a good job

    4. I'm with TT and Abby, Greg. We done talked about this enough but in a NY pizza the crust is most important, followed by sauce, and then cheese. If ya got the other two, it's not hard to throw some Daiya on top for a vegan slice.
      HowEVER most of the time vegan slices aren't plain slices but rather covered in toppings which, while great, can't be judged alongside NY pizza.

    5. Also, Shen, I just browsed a "pizza guide to NYC" and there's a website that rates best NY pizza outside of NY. If there's one on there in VA, I'll let ya know. Can't remember the site off hand.
