Boca Raton Pizza System Collapse
It is a sad day, indeed.
I have recently returned to my South Florida home for a couple week vacation before I return to the farm to finish the harvest, canning, and slaughtering, and to my chagrin I have come to find that the Pizza System in downtown Boca Raton, Florida has collapsed.
We live "downtown", if you will. The only 2 pizza shops downtown, Big Louie's and New York Pizza have shut their doors. The really sad thing, we unwittingly bought the LAST PIZZA from New York Pizza, and while enjoying the cheezee, gooee, tomatoeee, bread did not really notice that the proprietors were packing the store. When we returned nearly a week later, the door was looked, and the table we used had not even been cleared. They literally left and put the key in the door as we left. Now the nearest Pizza joint is over 2 miles away, and they of the thick crust variety. Oh, the horrors!
You see, this is far more serious than it might appear. Boca Raton is enclave of Nouveau Riche New Yorkers - and New Yorkers are Pizza fanatics. For the Pizza System to collapse here... well, the Pizzeria's landlords must have NEEDED to play hardball, and I would expect that high couture would have a difficult time in these locations... so I guess it is off to foreclosure for these properties... and no Pizza for downtown Boca Raton.
