Emailing Under The Influence...Not

Pronto Pizza, New York
Photo by myself in midtown, around 6th Avenue and 34th Street.

A small pizza place open to the sidewalk, is aglow with neon.

Yes, you can get pizza pretty much any time of the day or night here. It's especially tasty after too much drinking.

And speaking of drinking, there's a new function available on Google email, to prevent embarrassing email gaffes when you're too eager to click 'Send' to your secret crush, or to your insane boss.

Just enable 'Google Goggles'. You'll have to pass a sobriety test before being able to send emails. Answer math questions correctly within a certain amount of time, before anything leaves your fingertips.

D'oh!

Nice neon! Over here we usually munch on donner kebabs after a night out.

The Google feature is funny. I shall send that to a few of my friends ;-)

I can totally see that a sobriety test can be useful before sending out drunk mails.
I wouldn't do it now but everyone's been young and in love, right? *LOL*

As for the light night meal, the most popular meal here for the time being is baked potatoes with topping - which can be anything from cheese, bacon, butter, shrimps...you name it!

We used to get subs after a night out. Those were the days. ;o)

l'éternelle question New-yorkaise, qu'elle est la meilleure pizzéria de New York ?
J'avais adoré la pizzéria "Lombardi's" à Manhattan dans spring street et toi ?
the eternal question New York, it is the best pizzeria New York?
I loved the Pizzeria "Lombardi's" Manhattan in spring street and you?

I love pizza anytime, especially a delectable, foldable New York slice. But I've only ever found White Castles appealing when I've been, um, overserved. In fact, I once heard a comic say they should be used as a drunk test when cops pull you over: "These look good to you?" "Oh, yeah!" "Book 'im."

Pronto Pizza is a great name, it says it all.

I think Google Goggles is a brilliant idea, too. How many times have you had to tear a phone out of a friend's hands when they tried to late-night "drunk dial" an ex. It's harder to monitor what someone is doing on the computer so I think this invention will prevent a lot of embarrassment!

I ate at this pizza place when I was there with my family in Sep! This pizza place was really close to our hotel. It was pretty good.

Actually, I just ate pizza a few moments ago. Cool neon glow!

Kitty drinks, eats and goes home!

I think most New Yorkers love pizza, and there are arguments over which is the best.

Lombardi's, as Olivier mentions, is my favorite in Manhattan: thin crust, perfect sauce. Simple and delicious. Foldable, but I wouldn't fold it. I would enjoy every bite.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I have a weakness for neon!
