pizza brain squareSay what? Say what? Yes, tonight only, Pizza Brain will be selling a special Third Thursdee slice that is a collaboration with Jose Garces’s Volver. We don’t know if this idea is Pizza Brain’s or Volver’s, but it is an inspired collaboration.

The slice, which will be available at Pizza Brain between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. will be topped with scallion, radish, truffle aioli and cured wagyu beef. Get there early, there’s no guarantee it will last all the way till 8 p.m.

Thus, this stroke of genius from Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s Ice Cream: Third Thursdays. Third Thursdays are a monthly collaboration between Pizza Brain, Little Baby’s, and a third local small food business where guests can come and enjoy unique pizza and ice cream flavors for one night only.

Tonight: Federal Donuts / Pizza Brain / Little Baby’s Ice Cream First Friday Collaboration


Under normal circumstances, just putting two of the above names together would be enough to make certain segments of the Foobooz readership completely melt down with joy. But for FedNuts, Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s to all throw in together on a First Friday collaboration? That’s just crazy-pants. In their own words: “It’s just a regular ol’ First Friday Frankford Avenue Food Freakout & Funtacular…”

Do you really need to know any more? Okay, so for those of you who aren’t sold yet, at Pizza Brain, they’ll be slinging chili garlic chicken honey donut pies made with Federal Donuts’ fried chicken and plain honey donuts. Next door at Little Baby’s, they’ll be scooping pumpkin spice latte donut ice cream, which is basically a deconstructed FedNuts pumpkin spice latte donut, served in ice cream form, made with Federal Donuts’ donuts plus vanilla glaze plus pumpkin spice glaze plus coffee streusel, all set into a Little Baby’s Coffee Ice Cream with additional spicings.

Yeah, I’d leave work early, too, if I were you.
