Todayâ€™s blog is not a rant but a review of a restaurant that has now become my new geek hangout; itâ€™s Flying Saucer Pizza in Redmond. I have wanted to go here for months, but something has always come up & I have yet to make it there until this past weekend, and it blew my mind.
These guys have been a part of the KISW Perks in the past, and one time they delivered Pizza to the station.Â So Iâ€™ve had the pizza before, and it was great, but itâ€™s really about the experience. This place is like a geek paradiseâ€¦they have great sci-fi movies playing on the big screen, amazing 1950â€™s sci-fi memorabilia up on the walls, and they have trivia contests! My wife and I entered the trivia contest, we called ourselves â€śTeam Tardisâ€ť (I have to show love for Doctor Who, especially since Billie Piper will be on the show on Wednesday at 6:20 am), and we came in third place. Of all of the questions to miss, I missed a Star Trek question.Â Yes, I can name the plot & episode number of pretty much every Star Trek episode, and quote lines from those episodes, but somehow I spaced on the question.Â Quick aside, if you are doing a trivia contestâ€¦put your damn cell phone away, with the ability of going online on your phone, it would be so easy to cheat.
The menu doesnâ€™t just have pizza, but they have calzones, pastas, and salads.Â Itâ€™s a fantastic place with amazing food and I highly recommend it! The Pizzas have great names too:Â the Big Bang, Asteroid Belt, and Ming the Merciless are just a few of the names of Pizzas thereâ€¦Check them out at: www.flyingsaucerpizza.com
What was the question? Kinda interesting to know what question made you space out.
I'm not in WA anymore, but if I ever head up there, I'll have to remember to check that place out.
Hey, this is Scott, the trivia host at flying saucer pizza, and I wanted to thank you for mentioning us! I am so glad you had a good time. Kinda funny though, I have been a fan of YOUR show for a long time, and I didn't even recognize your voice at all. I was cracking up when I realized...
Anyway, you and your wife were a delight to have, and I hope we see Team Time And Relative Distance In Space soon! Have a great week.
