Truck Pizza Delivers at Basilica – mystery melts away

Almost immediately after my previous posting, “Mystery Pizza Truck – still somewhat of a mystery“, my Facebook page lit up with comments from Gary Shiro at Hudson Opera House and Peter Pehrson at Acres Food Coop about the future whereabouts of my mystery. Gary informed that Truck Pizza will be at 347 Warren St during Winter Walk on December 3rd. Peter delivered the news that Truck Pizza would be operating that very evening at the Basilica.

So, off I went last night, arriving fashionably late at 8PM for a party that began at 5:30.

Sam Starr and crew were right there inside the truck in front of the roaring oven. Being late I didn’t get a chance to taste the featured pizzas, but Sam whipped up a couple. I took them home. Karen and I gobbled them up. We give them a big thumbs up. Karen particularly liked the slightly burned edges. The crust was very thin and crisp. Total cooking time about a minute. Just as Sam had told me early in the summer when we first talked about this venture.

This was a busy weekend for us here in Hudson. We hung a new show, “Theaters and Theatrical” this past week in the gallery and held the opening reception Saturday evening. Following that we were off to Club Helsinki for Musty Chiffon and the Sex Magnets, headlined by local B & B owner Dini Lamot. By one of those little coincidences, Stefanie Klavens, one of the photographers in the new show, used to hang out with Dini et al back in the ’80s when they were a well-known rock band, Human Sexual Response.

iPhone cameras are handy but not very good.
Sunday evening, after our usual  stop for Scotch at our favorite watering hole, Swoon Kitchenbar, we went to the Hudson Opera House for a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the http: hudson teen theatre project. This turned out to be a wonderful, spirited production. A third sold out evening for this troop.
These young ladies greeted us with programs at the door.
Then, this boy showed up, but could not stand still.
