sunday afternoon with the slice gang.

Yesterday afternoon, after fighting off the post-biscuits and gravy food coma from Char No.4, I headed into the city to DBA, to meet up with the various contributors, commenters, and fellow travelers of Slice, the wonderful pizza blog that’s now under the Serious Eats umbrella.  It was great to finally put faces to names, and to try a few new pies from places I’d never heard of before (Rizzo’s at the very top, was absolutely phenomenal, and even after being carried all the way from Astoria).    Thanks, Adam, for organizing a lovely afternoon.  It should surprise no one that afterwards I met up with a friend and proceeded to consume even more pizza.

At one point Nick Solares and I traded lenses on our Nikons (his D300 D700 and my manual FE) — hopefully once this next roll of film gets developed I can see what sorts of magic my dear NoName can do with a f/1.2 aperture opening at its disposal.   I’m crossing my fingers, but also half-hoping the photos turn out terribly — there are waaaaay too many lenses I already covet, and I’m not sure it’s healthy to add another one to the list…

    Thanks for coming, Hong-An! It was great meeting you in person. And, damg. Nice pics. That was a FAST turnaround for film. What do you do? Get the film processed and then scan it with a negative scanner?

    Oh, and I now see what you were taking pics of up in the air.

    This sounds like a great afternoon. And wow, Thin sure Is In at Rizzo’s – that rectangular sumbitch looks delicious.

    @Adam – If money is tight, I’ll usually get the film processed and scan it at home myself, but if I’m feeling flush (or just lazy), I’ll have my lab do the scans and make a CD for me. Lately, I’ve been feeling awfully lazy (though not particularly flush)!

    @Daniel – I think a trip to Astoria is in our near future …
