10 Places to Eat Some Damn Good Pizza
September 24, 2015

  Pizza is my thing! Ask me what I want to eat and I’ll usually respond with pizza or Italian food. Love it! I’m sure I have Italian genes somewhere. Right, Mom?

After asking numerous people for suggestions of places to visit and eat, I made my list of Must Sees. 1. Space Needle The Space Needle offers fantastic views of the city. I […]
