Luxury Pizza

Only in New York City can a pizza cost $1,000. This so-called luxury pizza is being offered by Nino’s Bellissima Pizza (890 Second Avenue, New York NY 10017 (at 47th Street)), a upscale pizzeria. The high cost is due to the non-traditional ingredents used: crème fraîche, six kinds of caviar, slices of fresh lobster, and fresh Japanese wasabi.

However, the change in DST definition means that computers, software, and other electronic devices made before 2006 may not properly adjust the time this Sunday.

In the video, several rats are seen climbing and running around the tables and chairs of the restuarant in plain view. This situation has now left New Yorkers wondering about the validity of the Health Department’s restaurant …continue reading
