The latest on Phat Pug, part deux
I found the following e-mail in my inbox when I got to work this morning. Hope springs eternal in the breast of those who love pizza, and when Phat Pug pizzeria in Perry Hall first opened people seemed to really like the coal-fired version. Then things started to go awry: ...
