Bolt (the movie) and Pop (the restaurant)

No image on today's post. Instead I'm just going to encourage you to go out and see Disney's "Bolt." It's a delightful animation (great details, great action and angles) about a dog named Bolt who gets separated from his owner Penny. (I don't want to tell you more because I went knowing nothing more than that there was a rather crazy hamster in the movie. If you don't know more than this the opening scenes will be even more enjoyable for you.)

John Travolta gives voice to the title character and brings additional delicacy to this sweet tale. He has a lovely soft register to his voice and he utilizes it here in moments of surprise (such as when Bolt meets dogs in NYC who want to sniff his butt). Every second of his vocal performance is a delight. I will never look at Styrofoam® in the same way again.

Coal Fired Pizza?

Friday night, after visiting a gallery with my friend Linda, she recalled her father mentioning a new pizza restaurant opening up on Washington Ave. North, in Minneapolis. Linda has a great memory for locations. We were only a couple blocks away and decided to stop in.

Black Sheep Pizza at 600 Washington Ave. North, Minneapolis, makes the best pizza I have ever eaten. They use coal to fuel their ovens. Their menu says:

Coal was burned in the first ovens used to bake pizza in the United States. Today these restaurants, found mostly in Brooklyn and New York, define the "American" pizza experience by still using coal to make some of the best pizza in the world. As the first coal-burning pizza restaurant in Minnesota, Black Sheep Pizza seeks to honor the craft of these pioneers by using clean burning, virtually emission-free Anthracite coal and the best ingredients possible to create the great American pizza experience for you.
