We interrupt your happy hour escapades to bring you news that we've chosen a winner in our Meet the Masters pizza dinner and demo contest, which grants one lucky Cafe Society reader two seats at the pizza blowout, taking place Monday night at Marco's Coal-Fired Pizzeria at the Vallagio at Inverness, and on Tuesday night at Marco's Coal-Fired Pizzeria Ballpark.
We asked readers to tell us tell us what their dream pizza was -- and why. And the winner is Tim, who made us nearly weep with this memory:
Simple.....cheese and pepperoni.....Friday nights, early 80s, Cleveland, Ohio. Mom placed the order but I got to ride in the front seat with Dad, unshowered from second shift, to Steve's Pizza. If I was good, he'd always find a quater or two in that rigid, Atlas Bolt and Screw issued uniform for the Pac Mac or Centipede games in the waiting area. For that 9 yr. old the ride home smelled of hard work and Italy.....I still dream about that pizza.
