Bearno's is pretty good. The crust there has a unique soda cracker kind of consistency that I can't quite explain.

If you're ever back this way consider Wick's Pizza and or Impellizzeri's as well.

Y'all is a contraction of you all. I use both a lot but exclusively use y'all's as the possessive.

Not a fricking clue what that is.


ETA: but it's probably pretty good.
Generally speaking any type of "ethnic" food up here is far better than anything I grew up with down south.
frick you tell a person up here you went to an olive garden you might as well never talk to them again.


(I was more asking for you to ask the entire thread if we liked it... to see if you would use a certain word)

re: What has happened to y'all?
It’s not getting phased out in Texas and Louisiana. It’s used damn near every sentence down this way

I can’t vouch for LA.
But we have an office in houston and Dallas, actual Texans (mostly UT, A&M or SMU grads) they’re on our Oil/Gas desk.
I do not hear Y’all from them.

I’ve used “y’all’d’ve” before in texts. It feels weird though, and I wouldn’t put it in an email

re: What has happened to y'all?
I was born and raised in Upper East Tennessee. Growing up there in the 1980s, I was fed a steadfast diet of "y'all" with a twangy mountain accent.

After I finished my Bachelor's at UTK in 1999, I moved to Atlanta, which was the first time I had ever moved from East Tennessee. That's when I began to notice "y'all" in less frequency despite Atlanta being a Southern city. There were Northern transplants amok and "you guys" was as commonplace in ATL as "y'all" in the early 2000s.

I moved to South Florida in 2004. As you may have guessed, there was not a "y'all" to be found in the vibrant sea of Latin and Caribbean immigrants, Jewish folks from the North, and Italian-Americans from New Jersey. Even when I was at UF for my MBA in the mid-2000s, I almost never heard "y'all" in Gainesville.

I caved to swapping "y'all" for "you all" when I moved to NYC in 2008. In my ten years here, I have almost entirely phased the Southern pronoun out of my vernacular, even amongst my own kin when I return to East Tennessee.

Location, location, location. The Old South is fading into the 21st Century American Melting Pot, mixing with a multitude of cultures that may erase the term "y'all" from successive generations' vocabulary.

Even on here you see it disappearing.
Even work with people of the most southern of accents in our office in texas don't use it.

Correct. I’m from almost as far northeastern New York as many will ever see and have never said either word nor have I ever heard outside of tv. It’s You guys in upstate New York as it seems to turn into Yous Guys in the NYC/Jersey area.

Having spent a good amount of time in Plattsburgh, NY, I can confirm the "you guys" instead of "youse guys". "Youse guys" extends well into central PA, though.
