Here There and Everywhere

Rockin’ Pizza

It was cold, so cold it was even . . . SNOWING! We were in the mood for pizza, and we had seen a tavern along the road that claimed a wood burning oven, which is our favorite kind of pizza. We ventured out in the cold and snow, made it to the tavern, and it turned out to have a rock theme.

It was a very fun place, with a fake old brick interior, booths, a stage – I guess for competing rock bands, but there weren’t any live bands that night – GREAT smells, and great looking pizzas coming out from the kitchen. It was called the Rock Tavern, and they played classic rock songs, some really old ones like from the ’50’s, too.

This is what it looked like inside:

Here is what I had; it was called Evil Ways, and had artichoke hearts, spinach, sundried tomatoes and a basil pesto cream sauce – oh YUMMMMM:

Adventure Man had Ripp’s Revenge, which had kalamata olives, marinated mushrooms and sundried tomatoes – also YUMMMMMMM:

By the time we left, it had stopped snowing and none had stuck.

  2. Hi,

    I write to you from GO, the Business Management Magazine that is published by CPI, Dubai and Images Multimedia India.

    GO’s target audience is young business professionals and management students who are in waiting to be entrepreneurs.

    The magazine’s various sections cover: Management, marketing, industry profiles etc. We also have a section called Doing Business In that looks at living and working in different cities across the world. For our past issues we have covered Dubai, London, Singapore, Mexico, Istanbul and many more.

    This time round we are featuring Kuwait, and it is in the context that I am writing to you.

    As an expat living in Kuwait, I thought it would be interesting to get your perspective. I would like to interview you for the same.

    You can reply to my email id. Looking forward to your swift and positive reply.

    Best regards,

    Sana Vishwanath
