It is currently 57°, headed toward 77°, with mostly sunny skies.
The New York Times came to the Mission District again. This time they profiled Jonathan Darsky, 36, the man behind Del Popolo.
Darsky transformed a Freightliner truck and a shipping container into a mobile pizza maker, oven included. It really is quite magnificent.
The Times described how Darsky got his start in the pizza business, working in restaurants before striking out on his own:
“I needed a job,” he said over drinks last fall in the Mission District here. “I had just failed the California bar exam because I didn’t really study. I decided at the end of law school that I didn’t want to be a lawyer. I’d always liked pizza and had heard about Pizzaiolo,” a Neapolitan-style pizzeria in nearby Oakland.
He continued: “On a whim, my wife and I went to Yom Kippur services in Oakland, and afterwards, like good Jews, we went for pizza. I said, ‘Hey, do you need someone to make dough?’”
Enjoy your sunny day!
