Dear Phoenix, Pizza is the New Gateway Drug

Heres the latest from Andrew From AZ. (This might shock you, but that’s not his real name.) Plucked from the obscurity that is our comments board, Andrew is snarky, single and a bit of a (reluctant) scenester. In other words, he’s the perfect person to document the trials and tribulations of life in the world’s hippest suburb.

Pizza isn’t one of those sexy ethnic foods (Korean BBQ! Tapas! Peruvian!) that people who live in real cities fail to fully appreciate, but there is certainly more to it than the ubiquitous Pizza Hut would suggest. Pizza has to be among the most popular foods in the US (what picky teenager won’t eat pizza?), and yet, too few Americans are willing to experiment and explore the flavors, textures, and variety it can offer.

Almost worse is when the bad news hits closer to home. Where, in a bustling city full of generally unsympathetic, busy people, does one turn for some (inner) peace and quiet?

Dear Phoenix,
“Why are Light Rail pub crawls so popular? Last fall I couldn’t go a month without getting invited to at least one “So-and-so’s Birthday Pub Crawl FIESTA/ BASH/ EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!” on Facebook. Who decided this was a good idea? Everyone knows that the train only runs once every thirty minutes after 7 PM, right? And that you’re not (technically) allowed to bring alcohol on board? And that the florescent lighting will make everyone look ugly? That’s not even getting into the practical issues. Let’s relive part of one less than magical evening, not all that long ago:
