Chris and I have been dying to try out a pizza place in Temescal, the cutest little neighborhood in Oakland. It's called Pizzaiolo and as you can guess, they're known for their pizza. During the summer, on Wednesdays, you can bring a lawn chair or blankets and sit out on their patio while they project old movies on the wall. Chris had tried to have my birthday dinner there back in December but they were booked up so this was the first time we managed to get over there. We sat inside this time but will definitely return on a Wednesday to enjoy a classic movie, a pizza or meatball sandwich, some "bomb-ass cookies", and a cold glass of beer on the outdoor patio.
