late night bacon


Gourmet Pizza - Main Street in New Paltz, NY

I was in New Paltz over the weekend visiting Katie C. While she was in the shower, her one roommate John wanted to get pizza. Do you really think I would ever let someone go get pizza alone? No. Now, it was 1 am at the time so most people would expect all the pizzerias to be closed for the night. However, as New Paltz is a college town full of drunk college bros and college hoes, they have not one but TWO pizzerias open ‘til at least 2 am nightly. The one we settled on was Gourmet Pizza on Main Street. I got a chicken bacon ranch as it looked pretty cool while John got a sicilian and something else (I’m not really too sure what though, to be honest). My slice was above average, but still nothing to write home about. It kinda tasted like it had parmesan cheese on it even though it didn’t. John said his slices only tasted as good as they did because of how hungry he was, so that’s not very reaffirming either. He’s also said that he’s never gotten a fresh slice of pizza from Gourmet, no matter the time of day. Pretty solid for upstate pizza, but in the grand scheme of things it’s nothing worth going out of your way for. If you’re starving at one in the morning though, you definitely want to scope this spot out.

Riverside late nights call for bacon and strong coffee. Sometimes it’s worth hauling that heavy cast-iron skillet.
