Went to order from my favorite neighborhood pizza place, Nello's.
Their website was down but I had their number in my phone.
The guy who answered said "Thanks for calling Happy Joe's."Nello's shut down yesterday
, after a pretty fucking abrupt announcement on the 15th.
And who the hell knows, maybe this place will be okay. I went ahead and ordered my sandwiches. But it won't be the place I've been going for the last 25 years.
There are still two Nello's left. One of them, at least, is on the way to my in-laws' house, but it's not just around the corner anymore.
I don't think I've been this bummed about losing a restaurant since Greasy Tony's. It's a small thing in the scheme of things, but fuck.
I suspect the reason I missed that article on the New Times site is that their mobile design is fucking awful and I frequently just reflexively close it in disgust.
