Old News: Now with Mice!

Apparently, Angelo's has mice. ABC 2's "Dirty Dining" segment recently featured the Hampden pizzeria at Falls & Keswick. To be fair, most Hampden homes I know have mice too.

From the story:

"The owner says, "I hate it. I can't stand it. We clean. We're spotless. We do everything we can." Angelo let us take a look for ourselves and we agree. It doesn't seem like a lack of cleanliness in the kitchen is the cause of those unwanted diners. Angelo says he's tried nearly a dozen pest companies in the past three decades but he believes the aging building and the neighborhood itself may be just too inviting for pests."

Is this news?

I don't mind the mice. But the cigarette-smoking while making the pizza could be a bit too much.

Is anyone else bothered by these local news "investigative reports?"

I mean, you have a whole big city out there and what are they investigating?

Restaurants? Really? That's the best they can do?

It would be even better if they sent their investigative reporters undercover and "trailed" our local cops, to see exactly where and how they spend our time in Hampden.

One of two things would happen...

1. We could all be very relieved that they spend their time doing their job or...

2. We find out that too much time is wasted on personal interests or worse

That's not food poisoning, that's indigestion!

Good point. There are definitely worse things in Baltimore to report on. Worse food -- and other assorted things. Maybe a reporter there got the craps from the fries or something, or their pizza was late. LOL

But I like Angelo's, so I'm a little biased:)

Anon's police idea sounds like a good one, but scary. One time I got into a car accident in Canton, and a cop was there when it happened. On duty. And her beat was Hampden. What was she doing over there? Never found out. She totally lied in her police report and screwed me over though. I got the feeling she was doing something she should not have been. I don't mean to demonize all cops, but hey.

Angelo's used to be good - now their pizza sucks! Oh, and the place is dirty and the cook does smoke while cooking - ugghhh, GROSS!
