At least you won't have to run out and catch it.

I've had a super dissapoint nashville bagel, and now had an atrocious nashville pizza. ffffuuuu.gif

Also some weird things about where I live:

I live in a pretty affluent area right outside of Nashville, but it has weirdly disappointing aspects:

1. we have to hire our own trash pickup. - super disorienting to have to pay for garbage pickup.
2. recycling pickup is extra! Wait, what the fuck? Now I have to pay fucking extra for recycling pickup?
3. they have recycling/trash centers nearby and also bring temporary large recycling containers to locations nearby (schools) on Saturdays.. seems easy enough, but it turns into a madhouse and the cardboard containers get filled up quick.

4. the city apparently (and its whole county) has city provided trash trucks (and once a week pickup), and recycling but recycling pickup is only once a month.

so apparently a lot of households here, don't do any recycling at all. They just throw out everything.

Why are you going around eating disappointing bagels and pizza in a city full of delicious, regionally appropriate cuisine?

I don't think it is that weird to have to hire your own garbage service.  It has been like that most of where I have lived.  It is actually nice - we have single sort, where family I know who have city trash and recycling don't, and have to sort glass, plastic, and paper like neanderthals.

yeah the regionally appropriate food has been delicious. but sometimes you want a slice of pizza. I did the thing where I ordered a pizza, ate one slice, was disappointed... realized that no one was going to eat the rest and threw it away... then felt guilty that I threw away food.

its honestly the first time I've lived in a place that didn't have government provided trash and recycling pick up.

NYC had twice a week trash pick up and once a week recycling - wasn't single stream but you didn't have a limit and could just put tons of cardboard boxes and bottles out there and it would be picked up once a week. CT was once a week trash/recycling it was single stream (very convenient) but had to fit into the bin.

Paying and choosing private companies for trash/recycling really made me think about CE topics such taxes, unions vs private enterprise, and government services.

When I talked to co-workers who live in Nashville county lines about how a lot of families just throw away all their recyclables (even when they have city provided garbage and recycling pick up) because recycling pick up is only once a month it bummed me out - you have to assume that maybe the majority of residents just throw out the majority of their recyclables too frown.gif

FWIW I lived most of my life in areas where you hired your own trash disposal. Once outside of the big cities it's pretty common.

Larry, learn to make your own pizza. It's pretty simple, and while it won't scratch that late night "let's get a pizza" itch, it will work for the most part.

Homemade pizza is good but it's not even in the same league is NY/NJ/CT pizzeria pizza. Larry will forever be longing for real pizza while he's living in Nashville.

It's true. The pizza is probably the only reason why the rest of the world tolerate NYC's existence

This is what folks from that area like to believe but some of the best pizza is west of the Mississippi.

After the bad pizza, I asked around and someone suggested I order a frozen Geno's pizza to bake at home

In fairness I did have some delicious grits and farm fresh eggs for breakfast. Yesterday's lunch was this green bean salad that someone made for me that I scarfed down in delight.

Also there are some mexican food places near by that were legit good (one was literally inside a gas station in the ethnic part of town).

the one thing that gets me a bit jibbeldy about this great southern food, is that a lot of the great eateries have unbelievably inconvenient hours of operation: 11am-4pm and are often times closed during the weekend.

No. It's hard to find good pizza even west of the Delaware.

You could live in MN where there is no good food, period.

Again, this is what folks there want to think. I can think of only one or two Beard awarded chefs that got the award for pizza and both of them are based west of the Mississippi.
