That's right the Coal Fire Pizza that we have in Shipley's Grant in Ellicott City was the best one I had in Chicago. I looked on the local menu but didn't see the whipped ricotta on their menu. I went to Coal Fire Pizza soon after they opened and was disappointed in the pizza I had. Maybe it is time for a return visit.
This got me to thinking if I planned a Howard County Pizza tour which places would I include? Here is my list:
1) Trattoria E Pizzeria Da Enrico
4) Tomato Palace
6) Tino's Bistro
So which places have I missed? What are your favorites?
Notice that I didn't include the regional favorite Ledo's. Their sauce is much too sweet. My all time favorite is still Grotto's and now that they have opened in Gambrills I don't have to travel to Delaware to eat their pizza.
While waiting for the Pizza Tour to begin I went over to Chicago's Grant Park and found these interesting features.
I thought it would be fun to look at some of the pre-season predictions for the American League East standings. Here is what I found:
AL East: 1. Red Sox, 2. Rays, 3. Yankees, 4. Orioles, 5. Blue Jays
Seems most predictions were based on the final standings of the previous year and not how teams are playing this year.
