Wooster Square Blossom Blog Exclusive! 2014 Connecticut Open Preview!

Plus! Premier, pleasing, preciously poignant, possibly piously pompous, probably paradoxically parodying, positively PERFECT PIZZA POST people!


Let's face it. We here in 
World Famous, Historic Wooster Square, we are kind of lucky.
Not only are we steps from the best pizza in the World,*
(*source: causeisaidso.com),
we are a stones throw from World class Broadway 
Shows, World Premiers Plays, World Class Musicians playing daily at Yale, Free Summer Concerts on the Green, World Class Museums, #1 Foodie City in the Country, and much more!
Click here in the Chicago Tribune to Read how New Haven Rocks #1 Food City in the USA!

Like World Class Women's Tennis.
Right here in New Haven.

It's all that with Cherry Blossoms on top!

And the weather this summer? Fuggedaboutit.  Here in Wooster Square, where everyday is a holiday*,
(*I mean really, isn't it a holiday in your mouth when you eat pizza?) you could not have asked for better weather.  Especially after last winter's wicked woes.

The Blossom Blossom Blog Mainframe has uncovered much in the Pizza world here in New Haven;
believe it or not...
Home of New Haven Style Pizza.
(for those who may not make the curious, carbon copy, corresponding conspicuously clear conclusion, completely comfortably) 

Almost as big as a 
Pepe's Pizzeria Napoletana 
opening in the Boston area, is that 
Mario Bartali is opening another of his popular
Tarry Lodge's right here in Elm City.

And what is one of his main specialties?

Pizza!

So little time, so much pizza! 


Good Luck in New Haven Mario!

So grab your favorite Pie,
some celebratory satisfying, saliva seducing,
succulent serious sigh inducing suds,
get good and comfortable...

While we pleasingly peruse pertinent pictures,
we will find wonderful bites of pizza to
entice your haste to head to World Famous
Historic Wooster Square, New Haven and 
The Connecticut Open!!

Enjoy Responsibly!

The New 2014 Connecticut Open has some exciting Women's Tennis on tap with 11 of the top 25 Women in the World competing right here in New Haven. All the action is at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale.

We have last year's Champion, Simona Halep who made it to the Finals of the French Open this year, only to lose to Maria Sugarpova (er..Sharapova).


Halep has high hope here!

But, hot on her tail, is the 2012 New Haven Open Winner and this year's 2014 Wimbledon Champion
Petra Kvitova is looking for revenge from last years
loss to the speedy, steady play of Simona Halep.


Petra's always happy to be in New Haven
(Petra and coach after her 2012 NHO victory)

and after Wimbledon,
she still has that


Sweet Taste of Victory


Sara Errani Digs it out always,
watch for her in contention...


Wozniacki Wacks A Wallap,
Four Time Champion is going for
One for the Thumb!

She's got a whole section...


Ekaterina Makarova Makes Mesmerizing Moves Man!

Speaking of mesmerizing, if you have not tried the White Clam Pie at Pepe's, then well, you have not lived my fine fellow flower fans.

Every Pepe's Pizzeria that opens, is built just like the Original, ovens and all. They all serve the same menu.

While sitting on our porch during 
High Hanami Hysteria,
The oldest Grandson of Pepe's said that the
younger Generation wanted to replicate
our Wooster Street Legend and bring it to the World! Hey, and Casinos Too!

It tops the USA Today's top 15 pizzas
in the USA!

That's #1!

You don't have to go down that list very far to
find two other New Haven Primo Pizza Pie Places.

At #7, Sally's on Wooster Street has long had its following. After Frank Sinatra played in New Haven with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, he called Flo and told her to keep the ovens on. Frank fed the whole orchestra. And from then on, whenever Frank or Tommy were in New York, they would send up a car to get Sally's Pizza.

Pepe's Vs Sally's

New Haven Legends.

At #11, you have the place that every year gets voted "best pizza in New Haven" in the popular Advocate Readers Poll, Modern Apizza. Few locals know that Modern has restaurants in Colorado and Washington. Modern Apizza has the pizza concession at Safeco Field in Seattle!

How cool is that?

As Cool as watching World Class Athletes 
duke it out here in the Elm City
for a piece of Crystal, a chunk of 
$710,000.... it's kind of a battle like...the 
Thrilla in the Manila....the Rumble in the Jungle

Non stop action in New Haven


Carla Suarez-Navarro has high hopes

These World Class Athletes give it everything they have and the result is fun tennis in our
Historic New Haven.

Speaking of giving it all, BuzzFeed, has compiled a list of 18 Pizza joints that you must
try before you die!

Pepe's bakes in at #2 for its Clam Pie,
Bar came in at #12 for the Legendary,
Mash Potato and Bacon Pie.

And of my fellow super blogger Arianna Huffington,
asks the tough questions like...
"Is New Haven the 
Best Pizza Town in the Country?"

Is Nate Silver good at predicting elections?

My fine fellow flower aficionados,
gaggle your google,
throttle up your siri,
and ask for the fastest
way to Historic Wooster Square
and New Haven!

A couple of well known faces won't be making
an appearance in support of their 
significant others, previously engaged.

Caroline Wozniaki's fiance', pro golfer Rory McIlroy decided he didn't want to get married anymore. So they broke up. Rory went on to win the British Open, the next tour event, and then he won the PGA. 3 wins, 2 majors in 3 weeks.


Must have been heartbroken...

Caroline went on to win her first tournament too.

At this writing, Maria Kirilenko is a no show for the
Connecticut Open. However, were she here, her ex-fiance and NHL Hockey Superstar MVP, Alexander Ovechkin, would not.
They recently broke off their engagement.


  Tournament Direct Anne Worcester 
explaining to Mr. Ovechkin there is no
such thing as a cross check in 
women's tennis. Much to his disappointment.

Still confused about New Haven Style Pizza?



This year at the Connecticut Open they have 
a Legends mini 2 night return of men's
tennis to New Haven. Jim Courier, James Blake
and Andy Roddick. The New Haven Register reported that Jim Courier had not tried any pizza in 
New Haven, ever.

Poor Guy. 

There may be more of you out there. So the Blog Mainframe found what you are looking for.
