Ashlyn Jacobsen at Varlamos Pizzeria
As a recent college graduate who's now living with her parents and working as a waitress, do you consider yourself a member of the new "Lost Generation"?
Absolutely. Living with your parents after getting two degrees is completely normal for people in my generation. Unless I turn tricks, this is really all I can afford to do.
Your restaurant is a popular football hangout. Why do men like watching other men slam their heads into each other's butts? Is there a female equivalent to this?
Watching Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City is kind of like sticking your head up someone else's butt, isn't it?
Approximately how many times per day does pizza sauce fly into your face?
A lot. Other times it's Italian dressing on my arm or blue cheese in my cleavage.
What's so angelic about angel-hair pasta? All it does is slip through your fork. It should be called frustrating pasta.
That's why I ask folks if they'd like a spoon with their pasta. It's hard to eat most pasta without a spoon.
Do you think balancing multiple plates on one arm adequately prepares someone for a career in the circus?
Totally. If push came to shove, I could always try practicing this on an exercise ball.
What's your favorite dish these days?
I've been ordering the calzones here since I was a kid. My favorite is the Old Country Calzone with ricotta, spinach, garlic, red peppers, and mozzarella.
