We Need Some Things.

In order for Pizza Club to really take off, we’re all going to have to pitch in, and I’m not just talking about recycling. I’m going to make a list here of things that I feel we could really use to give us a greater air of officiality. (Yes I just made that word up.)


  • Official Pizza Club Business Cards
  • Official Pizza Club Rating System
  • Official Pizza Club Time Machine
  • Naked Pictures of Bea Arthur

Now I don’t think this is too challenging, but I would like it if we could have had these for last month’s meeting– hence the time machine. I say, start with the first two, and we’ll work on the rest when we have time. The business cards, I have an idea, but I think they should simply have a picture of Pizza on them, perhaps the same one from the header, and then say, “You have been visited by a member of Pizza Club”, and then have the URL on it, which, if you’re forgotten is www.Pizza-Club.com.

For the rating system, Scooter and I plan on implementing an automatic system at some point, or at least he claims he would help me do it. I feel like we should rate an establishment on a number of items, but focus on the Pizza. Behold, another list!

  • Crust
  • Toppings
  • Sauce
  • Cheese

So that should cover the Pizza. I’m thinking of using a numerical system, on a scale from 1 – 5 pizzas. This should allow us to use half pizzas, or slices, one to eight slices for each Pizza. I am also suggesting a few other criteria to rate an establishment on, but please, if you have any suggestions, I suggest that you suggest them.

  • Beer (all around rating based on Price, Variety, Coldness)
  • Seating (do they have comfy seats for fat people, IE: me)
  • Ability to deal with Pizza Club (how well were we treated, have we achieved rock star status — I expect this to increase in time, as Pizza Club gains recognition.)
  • Atmosphere (not so much the building, moreso how other patrons put up with our Club)

So post early, and post often. Let us know what we think.

    I’m down for making the buiness cards! I’ll be sure to have a little stack for the next meeting of pizza club. No problemo!

    And those rating criteria look good. The only thing I would add is that we clearly state the name, location, contact info, website, etc for each place that we visit. So that if people want to go– they can.

    Also, can we make the rating retro-active? I’d like the all places to be represented. We’ll have to rely on our memories for that one.

    That looks great. It really screams to me “Pizza” and “Professionalism”, not to mention “Officiality.” Anyone opposed to making this the Official Pizza Club Business Card?

    will color look ok printed out? semi-cool bw desig is better than crappy quality color.

    I think leaving Scooter and Testiclese alone with any sort of rating or POLLING system is a bad idea, based on past experience. Not that I’d know what the hell I’m doing, I just felt like putting them down to make myself feel better.

    I’ll put myself in charge of getting the Bea Arthur photos. When I do get them, don’t ask questions, such as, “Isn’t that your bedroom, Phil?,” and “Why are you wearing assless chaps?” We all need to make sacrifices for Pizza Club, so don’t judge me.

    By the way, the business card looks great. I don’t think it will fit in my wallet, but it looks good.

    I printed some color and they look good. And yes, phil, unlike Bea Arthur.. they will fit in your wallet.

    Philtheo, go back to serenading Bea Arthur with your assless chaps. TJ and I will one day unveil the most radical pizza rating system ever.

    A good pizza is more than the sum of it’s parts. In addition to the current rating categories, I would include a fifth category that reflects the total joint effect of said toppings creating a bountiful medly of flavor.
