We used to get some of the Skins lineman to come in and eat a 6 foot sub occasionally............which they ALWAYS got it done.
The deal was, if any 4 guys could eat it..........no charge
Anyway...........
Loved Armands back when I was in college. I remember the one on Connecticut Avenue. Didn't go there as often as the ones on Wisconsin Avenue.

Armand's is definitely some of the best pizza DC has to offer. Love that place.

This dude's dad (when I was in high school) was the owner of it (I think?? It's what I heard at least. It may or may not be true. Either way I think he worked for them.. Its the one on Wisconsin Ave) so he'd set up our school up with pizza every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for lunch. $2.50 per slice.

Hell yeah. I love Armands. I'm not usually a fan of deep dish, but their's is money. I used to go to the one on Wisconsin all the time. It's been a while since I've been there. They used to have a nice buffet where you could choose a variety of slices.

Where is the one on Connecticut? I grew up on McKinley St right in between Western Ave and Connecticut. If it's close by, I may have to get some next time I'm over at my Mom's.

Don't think it's there anymore. I checked out the website and it says one of the DC locations is permanently closed.

Re: Sen. Ted Kennedy dead at 77

Well if memory serves.....the original Armand's subway was owned by the Newmeyer's and located on Conn. ave in DC just past Chevy Chase circle on the right side headed downtown. They in collaberation (and maybe others) with my manager at Shakeys pizza on Rockville Pike opened Armand's Chicago Pizzeria on Wisconsin(after the staff was pirated from from Shakeys), and your right.......mmmmm good.

I grew up a stones throw from there, literally. I'm 31, and in my lifetime there hasn't been an Armand's in that location. I wish there was, though.

Coincidentally, there was a MotoPhoto right where you speak of that closed recently, and a pizza joint will be taking it's place very soon. Pretty stoked about that. I love that neighborhood. Basically anything you need is no more than a 5-10 minute walk away. Sherriff Gonna Getcha can attest to that. He's from around the way as well.

Now that I think about it, I think maybe it was Wisconsin Avenue. Were there two on Wisconsin? One in Tenleytown, one in Friendship Heights

Shakeys bring back memories too of old birthday parties, and autographed Redskins placemats.

This thread is really going off track, isn't it

Yeah, there were two on Wisconsin. One in the heart of Tenleytown just past Nebraska Ave, and the other is further north up Wisconsin, kind of halfway between Friendship Heights and Tenley.

Hmmm, how can we tie this into the thread... Teddy used to love deep dish pizza??

It was off track a long time ago.

So am I, and this comes only a short while after the Avalon has started selling beer. The circle was already a great place to go, but it's getting even better.

I know, when I saw Star Trek a few months ago I was pleasantly surprised that I could have a cold one during the film. Great stuff.

My college roommate and I used to go to the Armands on campus (AU) quite a bit back in the day, and to this day I still remember him getting the same damn toppings every time-pineapple and ham. That's one of my strongest memories of him actually, that damn pineapple and ham pizza.

And when he died in combat a couple of years ago, one of the first people to call his mom to offer his condolences was Ted Kennedy.

That's the best I can do..

So are you referring to that little Avalon theater a couple of doors down from Citibank? Across from Wachovia?

Sorry to hear about your friend. That is a good tie in actually.

Yes, that is the Avalon we're talking about. The MotoPhoto that is turning into a pizza place is in between the Avalon and Citibank, a few doors down from Magruder's (which has an amazing beer selection).
