Monkey Business At The Organ Grinder Pizza

by Jonathan Stein
(San Bernardino, CA)

I remember the little mechanical monkey sitting on the organ at Organ Grinder Pizza; whenever the organist tapped it's head it would screech! It had a small set of cymbals it clapped together also, if I recall correctly.

I can sort of remember the last silent movie I saw there. It involved a bulldog, some gangsters, and a damsel in distress. More than that, I've forgotten.

I can't remember the pizza at all, so it couldn't have been all that good!

Pizza dough and my brother
by: Bob Pine

Back in about 1979, my brother worked there making the dough and then making it into the pizza skins. That's what they called the dough flattened out to make pizza.

The pizza was good, but not as good as Pizza Baron or Shakeys. Mark would sometimes bring pizza home so we didn't have to cook.

I remember the organ stories and remember it playing. Good memories.
