You remember Pizzagate, right? The wacky internet conspiracy theory that led a 28-year-old North Carolina man to drive all the way to Washington to fire a gun inside a pizzeria that he believed might’ve been operating a child abuse ring with Hillary Clinton?
Say 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.

What happens when three of Philly’s
strangest favorite local businesses get together for a one-night-only collaboration? Fan-crazed mayhem and food-induced comas resulting from donut and fried chicken inspired pizza and ice cream, that’s what.
Which is why we’re warning you in advance about this week’s event. Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s Ice Cream are back for another Third Thursdee, and their collaborative partner this time? Returning champ Federal Donuts.
First Fridays are great for when you want to wear that trendy buttonless jacket your ex bought you and sip wine while feeling cultured because you’re looking at art, but sometimes all you want is pizza and ice cream. And by sometimes I mean all the time.
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. This month, the third local small business is Abe Fisher, and the menu sounds awesome.
In case you haven’t already made plans for tonight, the
weirdos nice young gentlemen from Pizza Brain, Little Baby’s Ice Cream and Art In The Age are getting together for a “Third Thursdee” event in which pizzas and ice cream will be made and consumed. The pizzas will be spiked with Art In The Age liquors. As will the ice cream. And everything will be wonderful–provided you’re super into things like ham-and-pineapple pizza with ROOT glaze, RHUBARB and strawberry tea ice cream, SNAP and lemonade punch and cocktails made with fresh mint and sage-flavored liquor.
It’ll all be going down tonight, from 6-9pm, at Pizza Brain on Frankford Avenue.

It was just two and a half years ago that we did our massive roundup of all the best (and worst) pies in the Philadelphia area. But since then, Philly has experienced something of a pizza boom, with amazing joints opening all over the city. Here are the best of the newcomers shaping our scene today.
