Sally's Apizza on the Internet

It was one of those special emails that you get.

Sally's Apizza, located on Wooster Street in New Haven,
Connecticut was officially on the Internet.

I like to think in some small way,
assisted the process. Sally's is like no other pizzeria in the World.

(Hey, I'm not getting in the middle of a Pepe's vs. Sally's debate here...
I'm to smart for see what I'm talking about click on the link above. Or just Click Here)
Let's just say, there are people who love Pepe's and there are those who love Sally's

I love them both...

Here is the email:

"Hi Pizza Therapy:
I 'm delighted to annouce to the world that Sallys Apizza
in New Haven, Connecticut now has a website, with pictures even and the menu.
Here is the link:
This development was prompted by the pizza lovers of the Yale Class of 1987 who, before their twentieth reunion to New Haven, contacted Sallys (by using the pizza therapy website to check out some details) and suggested to Debbie Consiglio of the Sallys family that a website would be just the ticket!
Yale Class of '87 organizer
(Jim Lande in Washington DC)

My response:
Thanks for sharing this Jim... the Sally's website is a true labor of love!

Here is another email I recieved from another Jim about Sally's:

I explain the following facts (although some may no longer be true):

  • Sally's is open from 5 pm to 10 pm daily except on Monday's.
  • It does not serve lunch.
  • It serves thin-crust pizza exclusively.
  • No salads, no calzones, no pasta, no pan pizza.
  • It serves no hard liquor or wine. It serves two varieties of beer, bottle only and no beer on tap.
  • It serves generic soda and no Coke or Pepsi.
  • It does not serve by the slice.
  • It does not deliver.
  • Parking is difficult at best and sometimes one must park 1/4 mile away.
  • Sally's has never had a special or discount prices nor has it ever offered coupons, ever.
  • The interior is not elegant in any way and looks today much like it looked 50 years ago.
  • The wait staff is not the friendliest, and when a waiter comes to your table you better be ready to order or the waiter will leave and not come back for 20 minutes.
  • And, to top it all off, there is never less than a one to two hour wait to get into the establishment and often another 30-45 minutes to finally get your pizza.
  • Often the wait is outside in the dead of winter.

Just imagine any pizza place in Ohio, Florida, Texas or any other part of the country or world! If they initiated all the conditions above, how soon would they go out of business."

Now if you ever happen to find yourself in New Haven, head right down to Wooster Street.
You will not be disappointed!
