Frank Pepe's opens to pizza lover's delight

Posted

Gary Bimonte, the grandson of Frank Pepe, manned the floor of the family-owned chain restaurant’s new Warwick location on Friday as they handed out free pizza to anyone who came by. He said that this is the 10th location for Frank Pepe’s, a well-known pizzeria that began in New Haven, Connecticut.

On Friday, the restaurant gave out free pizza (dine-in only) and sold takeout as well. They were also planning for a soft opening on Saturday, with a full-blown grand opening planned for Monday.

Bimonte said that the store has 46 employees and they wanted to get them ready for business with the gradual openings.

The pizzeria is located on Bald Hill Road, in the same plaza as Olive Garden and Smokey Bones.

Does everything Justanidiot respond to get posted? Seems to have nothing nice to say about anything. Unsure why the comments can't be anything positive in nature and or why they get posted.

Dear Justanidiot,

"tickspays sprayer'?? That's creative, even for you. But when you consider how long that location was vacant, doesn't it feel good to see a tenant? And when you consider that the taxes on that building are about $48,000 a year, the landlord can't easily afford to keep it vacant. Let's give them a chance.

Dear Beachbum1,

Speaking about giving a chance, why not give one to Justanidiot? His comments are always entertaining, never caustic, and often leaves the reader with something to think about. (although maybe not this time) If you don't like his comments you can choose to not read them. Personally, I look forward to his sarcastic wit although I agree with you that sometimes Justanidiot could look on the brighter side..

Happy Spring Beachbum1.

Happy Spring Justanidiot.

Good Catch Beachbum1 as i have been saying they are nothing but bullies!!!!! Never have anything nice to say no matter what....

Wow, SCOT, your first comment in weeks, and you completely blow it.

First, Beachbum1 was talking specifically about Justanidiot's comments -- not anyone else's. So, there's no "they" to be talking about.

Second, calling other people "nothing but bullies" is not nice. So, accusing other people of "never hav[ing] anything nice to say" is hypocritical on your part.

And last, you could have made your statements without overusing punctuation. That's the sign of someone who doesn't really have a point and is just yelling at other people -- and, as it turns out, you absolutely proved that about yourself.

By all means, though, feel free to reply again by yelling and calling names. You're consistent, at least.

... And your "point" was what, exactly, SCOT? That you can yell at other people and call them names?

Yes, you already proved that, as I said before -- which means, actually, that you proved MY point.

Thanks for staying so consistent in showing your true character, SCOT: No facts, and no point except to scold other people. I'm sure the make-believe mayor is happy to know there's one other commenter who shares his approach to discussing topics on this website.

First, SCOT, it's spelled "wants." Stray apostrophes are also a sign that someone doesn't have anything of substance to say -- so, yet again, thanks for being so honest about yourself.

Also, from the statements of many other commenters who have responded to what I've posted, it's wrong to say that "nobody" wants to hear from me. Many readers know about the make-believe mayor's tax delinquencies, ethically questionable campaign finance activities, misrepresentations about the business sector, population, and budget in Warwick because of my comments and they've thanked me for it. The same can not be said of yours -- or his, for that matter.

Like the make-believe mayor, you've decided to ignore the facts and engage in name-calling and scolding. And just like the make-believe mayor, you have not stopped anyone from knowing or commenting about the truth.

But you go ahead and make up whatever story you need to feel better [another favorite tactic of the make-believe mayor]. The rest of us will deal in facts and evidence while you, and he, watch another campaign of his end in humiliating defeat.

"Can't we all just get along?"

Everyone here knows that Justanidiot is a freethinker and a maverick of the underappreciated world of sarcasm. If you read his comments closely though, you will find that he often makes some good points. He doesn't get nearly enough credit for his insight.

As for SCOT63, you seem to have a real bee in your bonnet over CrickeeRaven's posts. Again, he has some very good points to make and I am glad that for every post that the mayoral candidate makes, there is someone else there to counter with the facts. Your definition of bully is vastly different than others. Take a deep breath and slowly exhale. It is going to be okay.

You are a well educated man and I am not sure what there is to think about in some comments made by Justanidiot. I guess if you can get by the sarcasm and purposeful criticism you may find something. There’s a positive for you ;)

And- seems to be a fair question considering the amount of comments left on most articles.

Perhaps they can be ignored ~ you’re right. Or perhaps like theirs, I can also have an opinion.
