Summary: Nothing satisfies a jagoff appetite like pizza and beer. It is no surprise that the Jagoffs parked themselves in the middle of the new Caliente Pizza and Drafthouse in Monroeville. Owner, Nick Bogacz talked about the new location, his love for the Italian pie and we learned he is even an author! We also welcomed Justin Matase, Associate Publisher for the City Paper, just in time to talk about Taste 30. Chase and the Barons, Chase and Mike, stopped by to tell us about their new release that is causing much excitement for fans. Celebrity chef, author and restaurateur, Lidia Bastianich called in to give us a taste of what to expect at her 18th anniversary dinner next weekend.
