Celebrating National Pizza Month


Speaking of our birthday, how perfect is it that it falls in October, which, many of you know, is National Pizza Month. Yeah, it seems like a gimmick cooked up by the major chains to sell more pies, but there's at least one individual taking this monthlong celebration to heart in the most sincere of ways.

Sean Taylor (with friends, above) is literally making this October into 31 days of pizza. In his own words:

In order to observe this month "the right way," I intend to eat at least a slice of pizza a day. I hope to learn from past experience (Pizza Month '02, '03, '04, and '05) and make Pizza Month '06 not just the latest, but the greatest 31 Days of Pizza known to [this] man.

My rules are clear, and I intend to adhere to all three of them. They are…
(1) Eat at least one slice of pizza a day
(2) With at least one other person
(3) At a different pizza place each day

So far he's up to October 8 (Croma pizzeria in Boston) on his blog and promised via email and IM to keep the entries coming. If he seems almost a week behind, that might be because Mr. Taylor is also detailing his exploits in podcast form—as with the slices, one for each day of the month.
