So I found this place through Yelp: Marco’s Coal Fired Pizzeria.
It touts a 1,000-degree baking temperature and handcrafted, hickory-fired oven.
Once we were there, we learned that Marco’s is the only restaurant in the state that is certified as having authentic Neapolitan pizza.
Apparently back in ’04, Italy’s Agricultural Ministry instituted rules that restrict what is actually Neapolitan pizza. Just to be clear: There are regulations for Neapolitan pizza.
This restaurant not only meets all of those rules, but also brings in its water in specially from New York City. (I don’t remember anyone raving about NYC’s water quality. Do you?)
Whatever their reasons/water sources, you can’t argue with the restaurant’s results. To use the technical term: Nummy.
On our way back, we saw a strange conveyance that involved about 10 people sitting at a mobile bar… peddling.
And so we learned of the Denver Patio Ride.
It’s essentially a pub-crawl mobile. Up to 16 people can sit and peddle around to bars, while a tour guide stays sober and steers. (Well, it doesn’t actually say the guy stays sober, but I’m going to make the leap.) And the company has worked out drink specials with the bars on the route
So, you work off your beer and avoid a bigger (heavier?) carbon footprint while chatting with your friends.
I have to admit, not the worst idea in the world. But very strange to spot randomly. Then again, there’s the Ride the Ducks companies in various cities so…
