SAL’S THE MAN
I was on Daddy Duty last night and took Campbell to see Madagascar. (Totally harmless fun. Though Chris Rock is about as subtle a voice-over actor as he is a comedian.) Made my boy walk the full mile to the cinema so we could work up some hunger. (We also walked the mile home, singing "I like to move it move it…" at top voice.) We then settled into Sal’s Pizza Store, on Court Street, and enjoyed the last of a dying breed as Carroll Gardens’ traditionally Italian community fades away to a typically cosmopolitan mix of Brooklyn Brownstoners.
