our local station, TV20, ran a short feature on us tonight, click here for the link to the video.
we were busy tonight, we actually filled the ovens at one point and had a pie waiting to go in… maybe it was thanks to TV20, maybe KCountry, as i heard that one of the deejays was in last night and said he had a good time and would talk about us on his morning show this morning.
i’m about to send out a newsletter, so if you haven’t signed up yet, go to the homepage and look for the signup at the top of the page. i know it’s redundant, to have a newsletter and a blog. really, if i have a blog then why do i need a newsletter? well, i’m not sure. i went to a lot of trouble to set up the newsletter and collect emails, and i guess the reason is that i don’t expect those hundreds of people to keep up with a weekly blog, but a monthly newsletter they can handle… but so far i am having just a tiny bit of trouble trying to figure out how to make the newsletter interesting and with different info than the blog. anyway, i hope to get a newsletter out tomorrow night so there you go. if you get the newsletter then you will be entirely up to date with the public available info on our humble pizzeria, and you might start to see, like me, just what new info is there that you don’t get here…
click the link to the news story. i must admit, i didn’t want to do the story, i hate seeing myself on camera sometimes, and i was worried it would be all cheesy. but then this woman, erica, shows up and does the whole thing herself… she filmed me, interviewed me and then edited and put together the whole segment. she’s easy to like and i was impressed with her skills. so, it was erica that made me feel at ease and finally erica who put together what surprised me as a great little home-town piece. i was nervous when i was spinning the pizza so it looks like i’m an amatuer, and when i mentioned the pecans we get form a tallahassee pecan man, i should have made a joke about the seminoles, but overall i thought it was some of the best reporting done on the place, and it was done much better than the may southern living article that mentioned us and got it pretty much wrong. however, i should mention that the one paragraph in the new york times was written very well, and is a close second to erica’s video.
there’s a 30 second commercial you have to watch before the piece, but hey, it’s america.
