    Worst Thing to Happen (to me) in 2005 (so far): All these fucking gnats everywhere. My ghetto apartment complex is over-run with gnats. I thought these things only came out in the Spring.

    Also: Would someone lemme know wher I can find Late Nite Pie? I’ve got a hankering for something sweet. And no, it’s not gnat pie.

    I added a link to the address and phone number in the post. It’s just a couple of blocks from Helio’s and Katz’s on Westheimer. It is in an old garage and sometimes they pull open the huge doors so you can stare out at the stars/traffic while you are gorging yourself. Wonderful wonderful place.

    Having never heard of Late Night Pie, I clicked the link and read the reviews. Do those of you who voted for LNP have no gripes? It seems like the reviews on B-4-U-Eat are mostly complaints. Should they be ignored?

    With all due respect to the food I love the most, it is just pizza. Spend the $7 and buy yourself some melty cheese :) All pizza places are worth trying at least once – and this one has been very good to me personally (and I’m obsessed with pizza as you know).

    LNP can be a little rough around the edges though, but that’s part of the charm. Case in point – New Year’s pre-party dinner last weekend: Our server tried to chase out some yuppies by blasting Iron Maiden, told me to stop ‘being so *&$%* nice’ and took free shots of Jaegermeister with us to ring in 2005 a little early.

    Papa John’s has certainly never done anything like that for me. I appreciate the character. And the cheese. And the metal.

    I completely understand. Those things would do it for me as well.
