JOHN'S OF BLEECKER Slice Pizza Club No. 4 met at John's of Bleecker, 278 Bleecker Street, yesterday evening. It was the first pizza club held on Manhattan soil.

This entry is essentially a placeholder and acknowledgement that, Yes, Slice Pizza Club No. 4 did indeed meet last night. Though we originally met at John's, the evening turned into a Bleecker Street pizza crawl, and hit up Bleecker Street Pizza and Joe's on the corner of Bleecker and Carmine (but not Famous Joe's in the middle of the block on Carmine). We capped off the evening with dessert at Mary's Dairy.

After all that food, I went home and fell asleep, my stomach no doubt draining my energy as it wrestled the twin dairy demons of cheese and ice cream.

You're going to have to wait until later this evening or tomorrow morning to read the full report, but till then, amuse yourself with this image above right. This obviously collaged picture sits in the window of John's and probably goes a long way toward explaining the blessed nature of Slice's favorite food.
