New Haven is Hell on Passover

April 20, 2011

I’m on the road again. For those who don’t know that means I’m blogging by the seat of my pants. Normally Mrs. Fussy reads over my posts and makes sure all the commas are in the right place. She also does her best to keep my tone in check so I don’t end up sounding too much like an a-hole.

So today you get me uncensored, for better or for worse.

This time I happen to be waking up in Connecticut, only a few miles from some of the greatest pizza this country has to offer. I’m even hanging out with my foodie cousin who has brought some very tasty treats in from Di Bruno Brothers in Philadelphia.

Except it’s Passover. So while my cousin who apparently is even less observant that me will be enjoying some scrumptious charred coal-fired pizza, I will have to be content with the bread of affliction. This holiday is the worst.

Luckily I’ll be headed out to Providence in a little bit before making my way back to Albany. I’m not sure how much time there will be for eating. But I’m hoping to get at least one tasty treat before heading back on the road to home.

With all of this travel, I’m not going to be able to stay on top of all my FUSSYlittleBALLOT duties. We are down to the LAST THREE DAYS! And now, more than ever I need your help.

In my absence today, please remind your friends on Facebook, Twitter and the like about the effort. The FLB even makes it super easy. Just go to to the ballot, and click all the buttons at the end of the story to share it like mad with everyone you know.

Yeeeeeeeee Haaaawwwwwww!

Of course, there is always the form letter, which I’ve been sending out in batches to all the different contact lists associated with my various email accounts from the past several years. This was a good reminder to me that I really need to spend some time and clean up my contact files.

And if you were feeling really motivated, there are a lot more grassroots things you could do to help.

-I’ve been reaching out to specific Yelp users who love certain businesses featured on the FLB 2.0.
-You could make your own Facebook Ad campaign in support of the project. It’s easy, fun and cheap.
-If you know Bruce Roter, you could ask why he hasn’t mobilized his people in support of the FLB.
-When you comment on a blogs, you can link your signature back to the FLB 2.0.

Or you could come up with something else that’s much more awesome than any of these things put together. But the time to be shy and reserved is over. I’ll be back in force on Thursday to try and bring this thing home in the final stretch.

I appreciate all of your votes. But voting isn’t enough. I need your help in spreading the message. Together we can do this, and show the people both inside and beyond the Capital Region, just how great the area really is.

Thank you.

    Could be worse – it could be Yom Kippur.

    If the crust is thin enough, couldn’t it qualify as K for P?

    New Haven is Hell on Passover….

    It is, but if you get a chance, go to the first restaurant I worked at many moons ago called The Union League Cafe, even if it’s for a drink at the bar with some oysters….the Chef’s name is Jean Pierre and he is a good soul and EXCELLENT chef….
