Angelo’s Pizza in Baltimore boasted “the world’s biggest slice” on its sign. Alas, that questionable claim is no longer true; as the Baltimore Sun reports, the Hampden pizza place has been evicted from its Keswick Street building, and has no plans to re-open.
According to the pizzeria’s owner, the landlord booted Angelo’s out after the two sides couldn’t agree on a lease. In the middle of business hours, the sheriff came to kick out customers and padlock the front door. Not exactly a smooth exit.
Did I mention that Angelo’s owner’s name is Angelo Pizza? Yes, you read that right. (And it causes all sorts of amusing lines in the Baltimore Sun’s article: “This time, Pizza said, it looks like the end of Angelo’s.”) In any case, we send our best wishes to Mr. Pizza — with a name like that, I sincerely hope he finds a new place to sling his slices.
