Pizza! Pizza! Pizza!

When I lived in Seminole Heights (Tampa) 3-years and more ago, there was a good pizza restaurant only a few blocks from my home. We would go to the restaurant since the pizza was good, (especially the New York style crust -my personal favorite), and we could walk to the restaurant.  They also offered a Chicago Deep-Dish pie. The pizzeria is called Cappy's

I have lived in St. Pete for 3 years and I have frequently driven by the St, Petersburg version of Cappy's  on 1st Ave N and 29th St, but had not eaten there until Saturday evening. This location (in the Kenwood area of St. Pete), and the one in Seminole Heights are located in similar Craftman style neighborhoods. Frank and I met Bob G., Bob S. and Clyde for another birthday dinner - this one for Frank. But Bob S. and Clyde also have birthdays but did not want any formal recognition/celebration. Too bad, they got cards anyway. ;-)

Frank, Bob S. and I shared a New York style pizza with fresh tomatoes, sausage, and mushrooms, while Clyde and Bob G split a Chicago-style "Cappy's special. (Bob what were the toppings?)

Regardless the pizzas were very good, although the wine was mediocre. Overall it was a nice evening with good friends and another "not-so-new" restaurant to check off the list.

Happy Birthday to Frank, Bob S. and Clyde. 

Oh, and before I forget, Cappy's is in my new neighborhood - about 9 blocks or so. So I will be back.

Actually, Bob S and I had the deep-dish, but who worries about details? The toppings were pepperoni, sausage and green pepper. As always, for me, the best part was time spent with my wonderful friends.

Ah, you are so right. Must be a short term memory loss problem - not unusual for me these days.
