These days, you can joke about politics, sex or religion, but do NOT joke about Connecticut pizza. This is what the folks at Ctboom.com learned this week when they posted a fake April Fool’s article which stated that Pepe’s would be closing all of its pizza restaurants.
I’ll admit it: I was fooled. I received the article in my Facebook newsfeed on April 2 and found myself telling Mr. EatDrink the sad news before I finished reading the piece. Fortunately, it was all a joke and the fires are still roaring at Pepe’s. So never fear, dear eaters, the original clam pie lives on!
