    Goodbye, Sbarro

    Went there for lunch today in CR. Manager told us they just found out this morning they're shutting down. Said close up tonight and don't come back. 153 stores closing today which appears to be about 15% of their total operations.

    Ahhh Sbarros. Loved you as a child, wouldn't think of eating you now as an adult.

    Re: Goodbye, Sbarro

    Sbarro is the greasiest topside of a pizza I've ever had, and I'm obsessed with pizza...it's not necessarily a bad thing because other pizzas stick out for much worse things.

    I usually laugh at people who pat the top of their pizza off with a napkin thinking they're doing some significant change to the nutrition of the food...but with Sbarro it has to be saving some major calories.

    Eating Sbarro is like getting an oil/grease change for the bot.
