A couple weeks ago, some friends brought back an annual tradition: the BYOT Pizza Party. Daphne and Dave provided the dough, sauce and cheese and the guests brought toppings to make a melange of delicious homemade pizzas.
Last year's BYOT party set a high standard, but this year many of the party-goers were seasoned BYOT-ers, and we exceeded all expectations.

What a seriously fun night. Since Daphne and Dave are fellow singers, we had a classic showtune-sing-along until the party finally came to a close in the wee hours of the morning.
