Paisanos and Staubitz, I guess, are the local options now. (Not a big fan of the vibe at Dellapietras.)]]> Brutal news! Oh, the meatballs! 😭 Will miss those intensely. Paisanos and Staubitz, I guess, are the local options now. (Not a big fan of the vibe at Dellapietras.)

We have actively provided sanctuary (quite literally, with two refugee families living in our church space and then moving on to safer spaces) in the past year and will continue to.”

And convenience. In my experience, the stuff they offered was far better than the supermarket equivalents.

I find Fairway as good quality and less expensive than the local butchers, albeit somewhat less convenient.

They have conveniently lost all sense of perspective. They behave badly and wonder why anyone takes exception. Sadly they are becoming more the norm than the exception here in the Heights.

Suasages are fantastic, made in house, and are relatively cheap.

Rich people giving their children a great start while getting a tax deduction. Why should JJ and Chelsea Redick get a tax deduction for ‘giving’ to this ‘not-for-profit’??? Time to rip the Band-Aid off. Religions and their schools are a business and should pay taxes.

Frank and Tony, for more than 20 years you’ve been a staple in our lives. I’ve asked you many questions and always got the right answers. Your meats never disappointed.

I will miss you sooo much, and Rolando too. Bless you all and best of wishes.
