Eater, NY:

Hey Slice'rs—no big news to break here. We told you back in last July that Dom DeMarco Jr., son of the legendary pizzaman at Brooklyn's Di Fara, was planning to open a chain of pizzerias in Las Vegas.

That plan is finally starting to come to fruition and we've got a few pictures of the first location in progress.

Just a quick recap: Dom Jr. has teamed up with the team of Albert Scalleat and Jeff LaPour, a couple of real estate developers who have owned pizzerias since 1968. It wasn't until reading bossman Ed's book Pizza: A Slice of Heaven that they realized they were missing out on some of the greatest pizzerias in the country, including Di Fara. Since then, they've worked with both of the Doms to figure out a way to get the famous Brooklyn pizza out of Brooklyn and into... Las Vegas. Incidentally, they are not involved with Tagliare, the Dom DeMarco Jr.-run LaGuardia airport Di Fara spin-off.

wow, they are still really hanging on to that hope thing, aren't they?

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

The LV Sun has some coverage on that...

President Obama, who arrived in Las Vegas late Wednesday afternoon and was greeted by Mayor Carolyn Goodman at McCarran Airport, stayed at the Element Hotel in Summerlin on Wednesday night. The president ordered 12 pizzas and cannolis from Dom DeMarco’s Pizzeria & Bar for his staff and himself.


They took the cannoli
