At our Toastmasters meeting last night, one of our members gave a great speech on the Boilermaker and the sense of Community that all of the stuff leading up to and including the Boilermaker give to this area. But - she made a comment in the beginning of her speech about Tomato Pie, Halfmoons and Chicken Riggies - I had just eaten dinner but that was all I could think of after she mentioned it.
So - here is a small article in Wikipedia about Tomato Pie and they mention Utica! I've tried to explain Tomato pie to people in California - they don't get it. They envision an apple pie made with Tomatoes instead - pretty funny looking I am sure. There are a lot of great places to get Tomato Pie locally too. Roma's on Bleeker Street in East Utica is one of my favorites right now. But I know that there are a lot of great places to get it. I'd love for you all to leave comments as to where else you can get Tomato Pie in the area!
My next few posts will be about Halfmoons, Chicken Riggies and Greens - which you just can't find anywhere else. Plus - Trios Pizza - it's made different and it's soooooooo GOOD!
