Win 10 Years of Pizza

Home Slice and Stay Hoppy celebrate, Unit-D gets physical, and more afternoon food news.

If there is anything that Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo agree on, it’s that pizza is pretty rad. If they were Austinites (and not imaginary), they would no doubt both be going to Home Slice Pizza’s annual Carnival O’Pizza on Saturday, Nov. 14. As usual, there will be all sorts of activities, contests, and loads of prizes like a dinner for 12 at Paul Qui’s upcoming Otoko, Austin City Limits passes, and a decade worth of free pizza. The free event benefits Austin Bat Cave.

In still more pizza news, Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza, the artisanal pizza chain, will open its first Austin location in December in Lakeline Commons on N. Research.

Unit-D Pizzeria wants people to bike to their shop, because (we’re just guessing here), they care about both the environment and sexy legs. To help encourage all of you lazy sorts, the Neapolitan-inspired eatery is offering two bucks off pies to cyclists who show their server their helmet or point to their bike on the rack. Guests who ride over from 5-6:30pm can also enjoy the happy hour discounts.

We have often thought that having a cocktail before grocery shopping was a good idea. It makes the experience so much more fun and fuels impulse buys like rainbow-colored plastic champagne flutes. Now H-E-B has made that win-win easier in Lakeway. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, chef Randy Evans will open Table 620, featuring a global menu and a full bar with craft cocktails and Texas beers.

The folks behind the Stay Hoppy blog have been at it for five years. That’s longer than our longest relationship, so it’s worth noting the occasion. You can do so on Saturday, Nov. 14 at an anniversary party at Craft Pride. Among those celebrating will be Hops & Grain, who brewed the Stay Hoppy IPA in collaboration with the SH team, and Via 313, who will be bringing their pizza magic to the mix.
