    For the non Italian crowd, how is that pronounced?

    That's how I've been saying it - emphasis on the "Two" and "Ben." I honestly have no clue if that's right - it just sounds good in a fake Italian accent.

    Speaking of that, does anyone know how Black Market is doing nowadays? Haven't heard anything about them in a while. Are they still relatively busy?

    We went there...pizza was decent, but it takes 40 minutes and there are all of 8 tables in the place. My advice is to either order out or call ahead.

    I wonder if the new owners of the Italian place know that they're in a flood plane. O'Malley McGees didn't close due to lack of business. They should have bulldozed the place and started over.

    Actually, the owners of the new Italian place are the same people that own Cazador, in case anybody is interested.
