Read this or I could get whacked

It was a beautiful clash of new skool and and old skool.

Last Tuesday night I was invited to break bread with Anthony Bruno, founder of Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza.  Some of Miami’s finest bloggers, social media types and techies dined on a San Gennaro style feast that included hand-rolled meatballs with ricotta cheese, Anthony’s delectable Eggplant Marino and their famous Coal Oven Roasted Chicken Wings.

Not to mention three different pizzas cooked in an 850 degree coal fired oven which scorched my knuckle hair when I brought my Flip Video too close to it. We dined family style in true Italian fashion, yet many faces glowed in the fluorescence thrown off from their handheld devices.  Not even an AT&T South Florida outage could quiet this digitally loquatious bunch as many of us knew to switch to the EDGE network.

The highlight of our night was our time spent with Anthony. Here’s some film I grabbed with the help of photographer and trouble maker nonpareil, Carlos Miller of Photography is Not a Crime fame. Could we ambush Anthony Bruno Punk’d style? Would he bite or would he send it back to the kitchen? Let’s go to the videotape.

As you can see Anthony can spot a Photoshop fugazi from a mile away.

Leave a comment here or on my YouTube channel for a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate or you’re officially stoonad!

But wait, there’s more! As a special bonus, I’ll be giving away a second $25.00 gift certificate! No separate shipping and handling!

My local Anthony’s Coal Fired in Pinecrest sweetened the deal and donated an additional $25.00 gift certificate. So I’ll be giving away two $25.00 gift certificates to commenters either here or on my YouTube channel. Winners announced July 22nd! Leave a comment in either place or you might get sent for, capiche?


Disclosure: I have not been compensated other than with Eggplant Marino for the above post.

    Great video! The music of The Godfather might have gone great with Anthony’s face throughout the whole thing – yeap, he does have that seriousness of “you-might-get-whacked-if” …

  4. Jeff Says:

    I like the meatball and ricotta pizza along with a large order of meatballs. I like Anthony’s meatballs.

  5. Joel Says:

    Any chance they’ll bring back the Mike’s Meat Lovers pizza that won you their contest a while back?

    I enjoyed the video 🙂 The first time I went to Anthony’s was at his Ft. Lauderdale location, my family members are Anthony’s groupies. Now that there’s one in Stuart it’s become a weekly outing!

    I think you might get whacked for punking Anthony. Hell, now I have to watch my back because I shot the video.

  20. Rob Says:

    That’s awesome! I go once in a while to the location in Plantation, mostly when my kids are off school since they like the pizza a lot. I am also known for winning second place in many of their online giveaways, so what the heck. Second here would be ok too right?
