The Homemade Pizza Co. apparently already closed. It never seemed like a great business plan to GM, but it had even less of a chance by opening in a less dense neighborhood like upper Georgetown.
This is really old, but GM just remembered that he sat down for an interview for this article last year. It’s a deep dive into the cupcake business in Georgetown. GM obviously had nothing interesting to add since he didn’t end up getting quoted at all.
So, GM asked this question a long, long time ago, and he got some advice at the time, but he’s got more readers these days, and he needs some reassurances: Is it totally rude to carry a pizza on the bus?
See, GM has a Thursday night ritual. On the way home from work, he calls and orders a pizza from Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont. He picks it up when he gets out of the Metro and catches a bus home.
So for about five minutes GM is sitting on a relatively (or sometimes completely) full bus holding a hot pizza. It’s never anything elaborate, just a plain margherita. But it’s still a hot pizza and it can probably be smelled by anyone within a few feet.
Is this rude? Should GM just suck it up and walk the mile home?
