My brother and I took a little road trip out to Lancaster, PA over the weekend. Why Lancaster? ‘Cause we hadn’t been there before. And we wanted to meet Andrew, The Martini Czar. (Also, plenty of interesting arts culture around town.)

Well, we found the Czar holding court on Friday night at the Rosa Rosa Pizzeria on Harrisburg Pike. (Not to be confused with the Rosa Rosa Ristorante, a few blocks away; the Pizzeria is past Franklin and Marshall College, going west away from downtown). Members of his royal family were in attendance, and the Czar stayed busy mixing drinks for his loyal subjects. Andrew mixes a mean martini. And the food at the Rosa2 was very good, definitely up to New Jersey Italian restaurant standards.

But if you go, don’t get thrown when you walk in the front door and see just another pizza joint before you. You need to walk along the side, to a room in the back. You will find a door opening to the restaurant section, where Czar Andrew sets up his martini bar on Friday and Saturday nights.

Here’s a shot of the Czar (on the right in shades of royal gray), along with two family members (Joe in red and Bryan in blue). These people are definitely the real thing. And so are those martini’s!!

  1. Jim, Sounds like you had a wonderful time on your “staycation”, as they call them around here (and maybe where you are). So many places within a few hours’ drive of home, (“stay” close to home yet go on “vacation”–in case the term is not used where you are) that are wonderful and enjoyable for individuals and/or families.

    Great picture of the nice men of a nice family running a wonderful business. These guys look happy; perhaps they are feeling no pain from the martinis. Sounds like you had a great time. Very glad to hear you took some time for yourself to recharge. MCS
