Jersey Shore Pizza Face-Off: Final Round

There’s no point in getting between a Jersey shore-goer and their favorite pizza place: they’ll travel extra miles just for one slice, they’ll defend the cheese-to-sauce ration vehemently, and they’ll dream about a hot pie in the dead of winter. So which Jersey Shore pizza shop is the best? It’s time to have your say. Last week we listed the top picks in each South Jersey shore town and 10,000 votes came flooding in. Now we’ve taken the top vote-getters in each town and are asking you to weigh in once again, to crown the ultimate winner. The victor will be announced online and be featured in next year’s shore guide in the magazine. A few housekeeping notes: Voting ends on Sunday, August 2nd; you don’t have to vote for a place in every town to have your say; you are invited to vote once a day; and if you decide to try every spot and wind up gaining five pounds, don’t blame us.

Jersey Shore Pizza Face-Off

There’s a reason you’ll walk past 15 Boardwalk pizza places in the hot sun to get to your favorite: A good slice is worth the extra effort. So which Shore joint is truly the King of all Pizza? That’s for you to decide. We’ve picked the top places in each South Jersey Shore town, and are asking for you to vote for your favorite (once a day, every day) from now until July 26th. (No, you don’t have to vote for a spot in every town to have your say.) Then we’ll take the top vote-getter in each town and have a final face-off, to name the absolute best pizza place down the Shore. The winner will be announced online and featured in next summer’s annual shore guide in the magazine.

If You Want to Say: “I’m Sporty”

What: One of the “it” cafes
Why: A minimal time commitment in case the Web-to-life sparks aren’t flying.
A Few to Try: Menagerie Coffee (Old City, no phone), for the rustic-meets-urban decor and unpretentious vibe; Shot Tower (Queen Village, 267-886-8049), a mecca for the coffee-obsessed where you can perch on a stool at the window bar for some well-lit (read: #nofilter) getting-to-know-you time; Grindcore House (Pennsport, 215-839-3333), a vegan, punk, edgy spot that is itself a conversation starter.

6 Classy Break-Up Spots in Philadelphia

Choosing the right backdrop for your breakup depends on what sort of breakup you have in mind. Bidding a wistful, sweet goodbye-forever? The semi-secret John F. Collins pocket park at 17th and Chestnut is the perfect spot, very The Way We Were. You’re close enough to Rittenhouse to grab a decent coffee, but far enough that people you know aren’t likely to witness the tears and tissues. (If you think there’s a chance the whole ordeal might really go south, Fitler Square meets the same standards but also provides endless directions in which to flee.)

1. The Rittenhouse

If you can’t get lucky following an afternoon in the hotel’s spa, a romantic dinner at Lacroix (indulge in the well-worth-it $125 chef’s tasting menu) and nightcaps at the Library Bar — easily the sexiest little lounge in town — then we don’t know what to tell you. Rittenhouse, 215-546-9000.
