    ok, i went to the one on beach a few months ago. it was good. idk, as cheesy as it sounds i still really enjoy philly's best. the fact they import the armoroso rolls makes the biggest difference in the world. let me know what you think of stella rosa.

    I keep popping in/out. I was there two weeks ago for a week. Ricky is in a tiny unmarked parking lot across from Vons on Virgil. ~12pm-4, Thurs-Sun. Just check his twitter feed to make sure he's there that day. He also does fish, too.

    You still living over by Mom's?

    Talking of cheesesteaks makes me really, really miss Freddo's.

    ^ya that's it

    Went to stella rossa with kelv and got the asparagus prosciutto, sausage, smoked mozza and mushroom pizzas. All were good and we started with the salume plate which was a huge rip off so I'd avoid that but the pizzas were a very good value. Bigger than mozza and coming in a couple bucks less but mozza still king in the flavor department. These seemed like they threw ingredients (albeit very fresh ones) together whereas mozza feels more balanced in its flavors and that's where it shines. Would definitely eat here again though. Very generous pours too, got black label rocks and she pretty much filled it to the top of my glass.

    This one's for jet. I posted this in "Dumb shit my friends say on fb." Yeah, I defriended immediately:

    "The Glendale Galleria is one of the most ethnically and culturally diverse places around...it's kind of awesome! — at Glendale Galleria."

    What, you don't think a mall full of Armenians qualifies as culturally and ethnically diverse?

    Most famous probably for their cocktails/frozen lollipop trio dessert, but supposed to be good for small plates too. Owned/run by Stefan Richter who was runner up on one of the Top Chef seasons.

    You're right. Armenians at the Cheesecake Factory is like being at a goddamn UN summit.
    Dude was 100% serious as a heart attack. He's white, too, in case you couldn't connect the dots.

    I'm kinda confused. I assume that's a list of places you want to check and on top of that you want to buy a suit? It also depends on when exactly you're coming down as sales season is around the corner.
