Hello and welcome back. Bill recently had a lengthy stay in the Windy City ... the Biggest Little City in the World ... yes, New York, NY. He and Pete compare and contrast NYC experiences and Bill relates the tale of a truly horrifying pizza. Also, Yelp doesn't work in New York, so don't attempt it.
