I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY
For those of you local to Ann Arbor or planning to visit for The Game. Mani Osteria & Bar was named the best pizza in Michigan by Mlive. They visited 33 reader submitted restaurants around the state and chose the Ann Arbor location as the best.
The founders of Mani wanted to have both a family-style Italian restaurant and high-style dining, and they hit the mark. "I hope we are re-energizing the Italian-American cuisine. It's something I grew up with," said chef Brendan McCall. "We want this to be approachable, like an Italian American diner restaurant.....this should be a family restaurant. That's the end goal." The staff was extremely knowledgeable and provided great service, answering questions on pizzas and the ingredients. A lot has been written about their wood-fire stoves, but the star of the menu is Executive Chef McCall, who pushes the boundaries of typical flavors. Take the Cippolini pizza -- our choice for Michigan's Best Pizza 2013 -- with mozzarella, roasted arugula, bacon and balsamic, for example, as well as the savory Sausage & Peppers with smoked scamorza, pepperonata and chile pesto. After a few bites, we wanted to keep eating more. The sauce also shines, and features San Marzano tomatoes that are strained and blended with spices to give it a rich and zesty bite. The cheeses are rich and buttery and the ingredients are locally sourced. Their most popular pizza is the Margherita, which has fior di latte, san marzano tomatoes and basil.
It's Friday night, and time for a friday night open/drinking thread.
Whats in everyone's glasses tonight?
Okay. Stuff happens. We move on. Hopefully without bashing high schoolers on the twitter (seriously guys, do not contact recruits).
We've lost our mojo, baby.
Let's find our happy place.
let us all cheer up and watch puppies, and other stuff.
Yeah, that about covers it. That kinda month.
I made then while working on a design for a beer pong table. I thought other people on here might like it for their own endeavours. The original image is very large (but there's only 3 colors so it's a small PNG file), so you may need to scale it and maybe add some anti-aliasing. I'm not really sure what the origin of this logo is, but I thought it looked cool.
Bill Mazer, one of the pioneers of sports talk radio and a University of Michigan alumnus, has died at the age of 92. He wasn’t the first to use sports talk as a form of radio entertainment, but long before ESPN popularized 24-hour sports broadcasting and decades before we would have access to Internet streaming of sports talk shows from all over the country, there was Bill Mazer’s late afternoon sports talk show on New York City’s WNBC-AM. He made sports talk popular on radio and TV by succeeding in New York City.
