So tonight I left the Blind Bear, having had my fill of green beer. My plan was to walk to City Market, get food, and go home.
As I walked past Aldo’s Pizza Pies I noticed several whole or near whole pizzas in the to-go case. “Isn’t it late for those to be out?” I thought. I looked at my phone. It was 9:55. They stop serving food at 10 on Monday.
City Market didn’t have anything that appealed to me. It was all healthy stuff. Pork tenderloin with veggies, salmon with veggies. Blah. There’s a Holiday Ham near where I work. If I want to eat healthy I’ll get a salad from them to take home for dinner.
I walked back to Aldo’s. By then it was 9:58. I ordered a slice of cheese and a slice of pepperoni to go. “Is that the Button Man?” I asked, seeing their veggie pizza under the glass. “Give me one of those too.” Normally I am not a fan of veggie pizza but the Button Man is so good that it’s won me over.
They grabbed the biggest slice of each pizza – 18 inches diameter – and put the slices in the oven to heat up for about 3 minutes. I walked them home. Hot and delicious. So here’s a pro tip: Go to Aldo’s for to-go pizza around 9:58 Sunday-Wednesday, 10:58 Thursday-Saturday.
As a bonus I had a bag with an Abita Midas Touch hanging off my door handle. I think I know who did it. Thank you!
