Get my "usual" two slices of Za?
A comfortable routine. Until today.
I go to a favorite place just up Rivers Avenue from my home and get two slices of pepperoni and a beer.
The only variance would be the type of beer, offered at different times of the year.
Two slices filled the bill - and my belly - so a no brainer.
Met a friend today for lunch in Mt. Pleasant at Coleman Public House.
He had the Cuban Sandwich and I tried their shrimp and grits. Both were tasty with glasses of sweet tea.
We stepped outside and I pointed at an advertising gimmick - a huge, oversize pizza box I saw in the window of a pie place next store.
I went inside to comment that it was pretty catchy, a giant box display.
Adam Haselkorn said "No, that's the box we use for our very large pizzas."
Adam was serving up a slice for a customer and I saw he had to use two paper plates for that piece of the pie.
I quickly did the math and realized that the slice was 14 inches long. Wow.
Benny Palmetto's Pizza is part of a 10-place chain that started in Virginia. As the link shows, all start with BENNY then add a location or attraction.
I saw a (540) phone number for delivery on the box but saw that applied only in Blacksburg. (Virginia?)
I had Natosha check how I had spelled her first name. It didn't look right.
"That's the German spelling, " she explained.
That reminded me I had had a 2-plater overseas last year in Prague, but I have never seen a complete 28-inch pie.
Still have not but I do plan to stop by there again soon. One of the specials I saw on a sign was "Buy two, get one free."
I'll remember that the next time I have a crowd of people over.
A very large crowd!

Thanks for joining me in planning a future lunch today.
