Data Analytics Chart

Before the first week of 2018 is over, I wanted to review the top posts of 2017 to see what people were reading. Turns out the most popular topic is… pizza. Portland is an excellent pizza town, so it’s understandable. The article about Chin’s Kitchen closing for a short week for renovations was the top post, thanks in a big part to the Oregonian linking to us. Thanks, guys.

It’s been nice knowing you, pepperoni slice.

Update 9/22/17: Atomic Pizza Hollywood is closing Saturday, September 23 (see comment below this post).
