Boris Pasternak in Dr. Zhivago: “It snowed and snowed the whole world over, snow swept the world from end to end. A candle burned on the table; A candle burned.” Sounds a little outdated, doesn’t it? Sometimes the meaning of life is staring right at you: “It snowed and snowed the whole world over.

It was 1982. I was enrolled at the Maritime Captain Training School in Cleveland, Ohio. We had just started 13 weeks of rigorous training. We ran obstacles. We climbed ropes. Everyone had to make it over a wall. We heard stories about Rascal House, how it lured maritime operators with pizza that was out of […]

Pizza Delivery Puts The ‘Super’ in Super Bowl

January 25th, 2019 by Rascal M

We like everything about the Super Bowl. The game. Delivering pizza. Unbiased surveys. Surveys? Oh, yeah. When asked what they like most about the Super Bowl, 9 out of 10 people said pizza delivery. The 10th person had been living under a rock for 39 years and had never heard of pizza delivery. “Seriously?” we […]

It’s January 15th. Let’s Edit Poems!

January 15th, 2019 by Rascal M

All across the land students are returning to college for Spring Semester. It’s time to crack open some books and deepen your understanding of the world. But it’s cold outside.

Spaghetti Done Right

January 4th, 2019 by Rascal M

Some restaurants claim they transport you to a magical place when you stick a fork in their spaghetti. Where everyone plays stickball in Brooklyn and Louis Prima sings “When You’re Smiling.” Where family comes first and romance is just a breadstick away. Our story begins in Cleveland. In 1980. When Mike and Fouly Frangos revolutionized […]

Psst. Happy New Year.

January 1st, 2019 by Rascal M

At this time of year there are three words (Happy New Year) that make us think of one word (FRESH). This makes it virtually impossible to think about anything else but our original pan pizza. Just thinking about it makes us invent new words. Like fresh-tabulous and fresh-licious. Naturally, fresh-tastic things happen when we double-proof […]

Why We Moved To Cleveland During Christmas Break

December 15th, 2018 by Rascal M

This is a true story as far as you can tell. It began eight years ago. My son, Ryan, was home from college on Christmas break. We lived in Joliet, Illinois at the time. He was a freshman attending Cleveland State University which is five hours and 17 minutes (356.9 miles) to the east. It […]

Santa Claus has said on numerous occasions, “the best way to Santa’s heart is through a Rascal House chimney!” Rudolph, with his nose so bright, agrees. “Listen, I’m not saying that Santa doesn’t appreciate all the cookies that children leave out for him, he does! But what really gets the old man’s belly shaking is […]

November 1st, 2018 by Rascal M

Hey everyone, Rascal M here! November is National Blog Posting Month. I’ve written about a lot of things so far. Like our menu options that run deeper than the middle of Lake Erie.

The Photographic Goodness of Being an Original

October 1st, 2018 by Rascal M

Being original means standing out in a crowd. Like in this picture, taken one morning around 6:30 from the corner of Euclid and East 6th. I was minding my own business when, suddenly, I walked smack dab into one of those glory moments. One where heavenly music plays and everything in the world stops while […]

The Tasty Convenience of Rascal House Box Lunches

September 15th, 2018 by Rascal M

Every day Rascal House makes 5 different kinds of Box Lunches and sells them to the great people of northeast Ohio. I sat down with the Box Lunches recently to learn more about them. They were suspicious of me at first. I don’t blame them. Most reporters bring a tape recorder, maybe something to write […]
