Let me start out by saying… Damgoode Pies just might have the best morning-after pizza around. Hot or cold, one of their stuffies is like the perfect hand-held accompaniment to coffee with a little cream, just enough spiciness to pull you out of the mental ether.

That’s not saying Damgoode is the be all and end all of pizza. I have other favorites. But without putting that out there up front I’m not being fair to the local chain.

Went with friends last night (who poked fun at me for pulling out the camera, no sweat, I’m used to that) for a nice Sunday night wind-down. Brought my daughter along. Hunger was burbling all around, and it didn’t take long for us to figure out what we wanted.
