Brussels Sprout Pizza: an exclusive for SliCE in Fishtown and free on Friday
SliCE Pizza which already has locations in South Philadelphia, Rittenhouse and Washington Township, New Jersey is opening a Fishtown shop on Friday, October 28th. And the shop is opening by giving out free pizza.
Marlo and Jason Dilks who own SliCE as well as East Passyunk’s P’unk Burger will have many of their longtime favorites on the menu but in a twist, the Fishtown location will be dedicated to serving organic, natural and hormone free ingredients. The pizzeria, which specializes in Trenton-style pizza will also offer an expanded selection of vegan and gluten-free options for its Fishtown guests. Look for the other SliCE locations to go organic by next year.

Pizzeria Vetri‘s “Pizza Jawn” series is a quarterly event where the Vetri team buddies up with a chef outside the family to collaborate on a limited edition pizza. This time around, the chef they’re bringing in is Yehuda Sichel (from Abe Fisher and elsewhere) and from October 17th to the 23rd, Pizzeria Vetri will be offering his Pork Belly Reuben Pizza. The Pork Belly Reuben pie will be available at Pizzeria Vetri’s Chancellor Street and Callowhill Street locations.
Oh, and in other news? Today is the grand opening of Pizzeria Vetri at the KOP Mall. It’s their new Square Pie model (which we told you all about a couple days ago), so if you’re in the mood for something square tonight, you’re in luck.

&pizza comes to Philadelphia
The popular and well liked (4.5 stars on Yelp) Washington D.C. pizza chain, &pizza lands in Philadelphia. The first area location and 17th for the chain is opening Thursday, October 13th at 1430 Walnut Street (on 15th Street under the Cheesecake Factory).
The quick-serve pizza spot (pronounced “and pizza”) will host a celebration in honor its first location outside of Washington D.C. with free pizza and tattoos.
That’s right– &pizza is offering tattoos of their logo, the ampersand, on their opening day. The first five guests to request this tattoo will receive it for free, along with free pizza for a full year. If you aren’t sure permanent ink for a year of free pizza is for you, you can still get a free pie if you are one of the first 215 guests to arrive–the number 215 being a nod to Philadelphia’s area code.

Over the weekend, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon portrayed undecided voters from Clifton Heights in a Saturday Night Live Weekend Update skit.
It went about as you’d expect: Fey was excellent, and her Philly accent was great, while Jimmy Fallon broke character and giggled a bunch. Mayor Jim Kenney even made fun of Fallon’s faux Philly accent. Read more »

Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie
The Pizzeria Vetri that’s opening at the confluence of the Urban Outfitters brands at the King of Prussia Mall will be different than the other Pizzeria Vetri locations out there. It will be known as Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie and will specialize in pizza al taglio, Vetri’s take on the thicker, square traditional Roman pizzas. Additionally there will be a whole menu of Pizzeria Vetri’s rotolos, stuffed and rolled pizza dough, plus a selection of seasonal desserts.
The new menu will also include dessert pizzettes, including an apple pie crumble variation and a Southern-inspired gelato created in collaboration with chef Kevin Sbraga, exclusive to the King of Prussia location. The Pizzeria Square Pie will also offer wine and beer and will offer counter service and a seating area for 60 diners.
The Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie will be part of the Urban Outfitters destination at the mall, which will include an UO, Anthropologie and Free People. Pizzeria Vetri Square Pie is scheduled to open on Friday, October 14th.

Sometimes, life hands you some difficult decisions, and this weekend we have to make a really hard one: when we inevitably wake up with an excruciating hangover from Oktoberfest at Alla Spina (or from whatever our Saturday night plans happen to be), will we brave techno and deep house music for the reward of hand-tossed brunch pizzas, biscuits, craft beer and “beerdrivers” at Dock Street Brewery?

This is not usually what you look like after consuming a lot of pizza | Photos: Santucci’s pizza photo by Dan McQuade; Connor Barwin photo by Jeff Fusco
Connor Barwin recently did an interview with GQ about his diet. Barwin is listed as 6-foot-4, 264 pounds — and in modern pro sports, every extra little bit counts. So he works out a lot, and he also eats a lot. He detailed his diet and pre-game ritual for the magazine, but he also explained his one cheat:
You obviously try to get protein and amino acids back. My normal routine is coming home and getting pizza—but that’s more for relaxing. Mushroom pizza always from Santucci’s in Philadelphia. Always.
