We’ve always admired Forever 21 for their super fast to market, on trend, dirt cheap clothing and accessories. This line of craveable Food Wrist Watches calls for a time out. We, of course, would opt for the center image so that it’s always pizza time o’clock in our dough filled, tomato sauce world. Although, donut time is also not a bad alarm to wake too. Enough of the time jokes. Go ahead and scarf these up online but it’s much more fun to go into a store and try them all on, trust us.
All pizza Stuff
Tagging on to yesterdays post, we think these napkins should be mandatory for all slice joints to provide as mouth wipers. We found these Pizza Love Party Napkins in Walmart of all places. There are good things to be found in places you’d never expect, case in point. The genius behind these paper proclamators is a company called, Creative Converting. They make eating extra fun and take parties to a level your five year old, and maybe your 35 year old, will love. Next time you spin up a delivery pie for your Friday night pre-game party, drop these on the table. We promise they will pay off all night.
These days in Williamsburg’s hipster mecca, a notebook is almost as mandatory as a carabiner of keys clipped to your jet black jeans. Moleskine dominates mindshare with Field Notes and Shinola journals coming in a far second. Gold Teeth Brooklyn decided to smash the foodie and the Brooklynite together by borrowing the big players form factor and creating a food focused series of pocket notebooks. Of the three, the Pizza Notebook reigns our fav. Now every time we go to jot down an ironic, clever idea for a future tweet we’re reminded of one of the greatest food items in the world. Not to mention the one responsible for fueling New Yorker’s through the 80’s and 90’s.
I’ve been wearing Vans since I was 11. The resurgence of this brand into the mainstream made me smile something fierce. Then they went and did the unthinkable. Marry the classic slip on to a classic slice. If they say you can’t have your pie and wear it too, this just changed the rules. Vans Pizza Slip-ons are perfect for that midnight run to that randomly named pizza joint down the block. (if you live in NYC anyway). I bet you can get it to the point where all you have to do is point to your feet and Mike will dish you up a hot one.
This week we tuned into Marc Maron interviewing Michael Rappaport. The conversation started with city pizza preferences. The topic popped because they both now live in LA but Maron spent years in NYC and Rappaport was born and bread on straight 80’s hip-hop culture. Pizza is a cultural thing as much as it’s a quick food hit. Even though they netted out thinking the war is bunk, since artisanal food culture has made everything really good in most major cities, we still like the idea of drawing a line in the marinara. This Pizza Battle T-Shirt will do just the trick the next time we have to fly to Chicago. Although, you wouldn’t catch me wearing this in Naples. Those guys will take a life for an offense of this magnitude.
When we saw this we had to have it. We validated this spend by calling it a right of passage for our Italian-American heritage. Truth is this might be the best solution to the age old Italian dilemma, “How can I make authentic Neapolitan pizza in my back yard if I can’t get any of my baking devices over 600 degrees unless I spend $2000.” The Roccbox Portable Pizza Oven solves this, admittedly non-universal-yet-equally-important-to-a-certain-niche, problem with not only a beautiful form factor but with an optional heat method. Two baskets attach to the undercarriage of this ceramic lined, triple aluminum and silicone domed beauty. The first is your standard wood quiver. The second is a gas jet for those moments the timber runs out or you are just to lazy to go gather some logs. Roccbox claims a 0-900°F in just 15 min making this an after work option as much as a weekend splurge.
To kick off our run up to Valentines Day, let’s start with a puntastic card that also has my favorite food front and center. Giving this to my wife is like saying I love you more than anything in the know universe being that pizza ranks #2 just after her.
