"...By now, many Austinites know that Home Slice Pizza partially shuts down every September so members of its staff can make a pilgrimage to New York City. They eat and drink at some of the most authentic purveyors of N.Y.-style pizza in its home environs..."
"...Home Slice Pizza begins their second annual DOUGHvember celebrations, benefitting a different Austin nonprofit partner each week...."
"...After years of planning, Home Slice Pizza has finally begun construction on a second location in North Central Austin. The local pizzeria is set to start tossing pies in late fall of 2017, on the corner of North Loop and Duval at 501 E..."
"...Who says you can't trust Mondays? Austin's Queen of Pies, Home Slice Pizza, chose the Monday considered to be the official beginning of summer to announce a Monday-only pizza deal that's good all summer...."
"...At Home Slice Pizza, where they've been throwing dough since 2006, the New York-style slices are served so big you have to fold them down the middle to eat, and that original South Congress location is as intrinsic to Austin as the bat bridge, which might explain why, somehow, we've never reviewed them. These former New Yorkers are bolstered by the local pizza scene, inspiring born-and-raised Texans to sit on the curb with a slice served on a paper plate, happily letting the grease drip down their arms..."
"...22) Home Slice Pizza..."
"...Sometimes producer, sometimes actor and sometimes director Tony Bill (this time he directed) has terrific taste in material. Especially in the films he directsr, Bill's works are all loosely focused slice-of-life films that tell very human stories..."
"...If you’re looking for a slightly less pricy way to show some love for ABC, a local writing and tutoring center molded on 826 National model, proceeds from Home Slice’s annual Carnival o' Pizza tomorrow will benefit the Bat Cave. There’ll be games, bands, graffiti artists, readings from ABC kids, and a raffle with some nifty prizes, including a trip for two to San Francisco to have lunch with Dave Eggers, a story critique by George Saunders, and “the right to be the only person on Earth who can make a reservation at Home Slice.”..."
"...Another snapshot captures a worker in the Documentation Center of the Cambodian Genocide Program, an organization run from Yale University that is creating online catalogues of evidence left behind by the Khmer Rouge that will help give names to previously unknown victims. A cyber slice-of-life closer to home features Austinite Layne Jackson, former art director for Girl Games, Inc., who served as an online mentor to adolescent girls during one of the software company's outreach programs..."
"...Listening to a world-class pianist in the intimacy of a home had impressed upon me anew what a wonder it can be to experience art where people live, to feel art so close and so closely threaded through the rhythms of daily life. After a slice of that, who wouldn't want seconds?..."
"...You'll find cedar choppers chatting with millionaires from Horseshoe Bay and grunge rockers swapping stories with Dellionaires. I had a blast listening to oily boat mechanics animatedly arguing over Fermat's Last Theorem and the origin of pi while they scarfed down slices of Kathy's pie...."
"...Home Slice and Stay Hoppy celebrate, Unit-D gets physical, and more afternoon food news...."
"...Used to be in The 40 Thieves, and they rap lots with those boys. While at that show, I met Rosetta Stoned, the married Home Slice investor I've always had a crush on, and many, many-a Lone Stars..."
"...Oh, and Home Slice Pizza’s DOUGHVember Finale – a collaboration with PintHouse Pizza and Via 313 – takes place 5-10pm at the South Congress Home Slice. Pinthouse Pizza is hosting a Tap Take Over and Home Slice will be offering their entire menu, the special collaborative menu, and some special one-night-only wines..."
"...E-300, 301-DAVE, www.doubledaves.com), which has pizza to eat in or take out and a delivery area covering a 3-mile radius from the store. And the always-busy SoCo favorite Home Slice Pizza (1415 S..."
"...Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress) Home Slice is the nearest thing to authentic New York pizza to be had in Austin; in fact, it's indistinguishable from the original, creating Home Slice's biggest drawback: This place is always swamped..."
"...Have a Home Slice The wait is over: Fresh, handmade pizza has returned to SoCo with the opening last week of the long-awaited, much-anticipated Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress, 444-7437)..."
"...Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress, 444-PIES) proprietors Terri Hannifin and Jen and Joseph Strickland are all about authenticity, so they're closing up shop for a few days to take their entire staff on an eating trip to what they consider pizza's gustatory motherland: New York City..."
"...The development will also include a retail shopping village with 30 boutiques set to open at a later date... The serious pizza mavens at Austin's award-winning Home Slice Pizza (1415 & 1421 S..."
"...Music by the SliceHome Slice Pizza, Friday, March 19..."
"...Joseph Strickland, co-founder and -owner of Home Slice Pizza, says he signed the letter because a North Carolina-style bill would force service and hospitality industries to partake in state-sponsored discrimination. The pizza joint on South Congress playfully employs city code on its gender-neutral restrooms by featuring a pizza slice and a pizza without a slice, symbolizing different genders...."
"...› Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress) hosts the seventh annual Music by the Slice party; proceeds benefit Urban Roots, a nonprofit sustainable agriculture program for area high schoolers..."
"...Despite its grim subject matter, Landreth’s film (with no small assist from Larkin) is something of an artistic masterpiece. Finally, American Alexander Woo’s 2004 Student Academy Award winner "Rex Steele: Nazi Smasher" is a galloping slice of proto-Americana that gleefully mines everything from Indiana Jones to those old Republic Serials and leaves nary a straight face in the house..."
"...The team who brought us Driving Miss Daisy is now driving its brand of Southern sentimental hogwash into the ground. Producers Richard and Lili Zanuck, writer Alfred Uhry (who won an Oscar for his Miss Daisy script) and transplanted Australian director Beresford all reunite here to create a spunky slice of South Carolina life..."
"...Brunner says she recommends guests "stick to the neighborhood" during SXSW, but she does like to "send them off on adventures" sometimes. She mentioned that Home Slice Pizza is a quick walk and a universal favorite among pizza-craving guests..."
"...The late arrival of Sergio (the animalistic Abatantuono), a boisterous and dangerous houseguest from Brazil, only adds to Michele’s woes. By far the most gorgeous slice of sunlit sadism so far this summer, I’m Not Scared also manages to be oddly sweet: a boy’s life, with treachery...."
"...› Home Slice Carnival O' Pizza Home Slice celebrates its anniversary with live music, games, a photo booth, and plenty of contests. Sat., Nov..."
"...The first-time feature director, co-writer, and star of Caramel, Labaki, can be forgiven the commonness of her dramatic setting because of the gracefulness of her storytelling and the strength of her vision. With the help of nonprofessional actors, Labaki has carved out a delectable slice of life whose flavors are rarely available on these Western shores..."
"...Burger: Hut's; Pizza: Home Slice; Taco: Maria's Taco Xpress..."
"...The director makes the most of Iceland's spectacular sunsets, matching them against his stars' feeble obfuscations and besotted lives, and though much of the film is made up entirely of drunken shouting matches, Fridriksson clearly has a genuine fondness for these emotionally inept people. Not your run-of-the-mill Icelandic coming-of-age movie, Devil's Island is instead a loud, unruly slice of comic conflict that charms even as it chills...."
"...Starring: Lauren Velez, Jon Seda, Rita Moreno, Griffin Dunne and Tomas Melly. A vibrant, passionate, romantic, funny, funky, and thoroughly realistic slice of black and Latino Bronx life that flies off the screen in the first few moments and doesn't let up until the very tail end of the closing credits..."
"...The Silent Enemy is a big-hearted picture, following the late Twenties vogue of dramatic “documentaries” shot on location, almost always more fiction than reality. Carefully scripted and cast, this pretends to be a slice of life of the Ojibway tribe before Columbus arrived in the New World..."
"...It also refers to the film's overall obsession with food and all its emotional by-products. This British dramedy is a slice-of-life study..."
"...The family and their eccentric neighbors fight the eviction all the way to the Supreme Court. Though The Castle is sure to evoke special reactions during its run in Austin due to this city's long struggle with the issue of airport location, the movie is nevertheless a peculiarly Aussie slice of optimistic comedy..."
"...I don’t know about you, but when I settle in for a nice big slice of the latest Fatal Attraction knockoff, it had better take things above and beyond the hundreds of Lifetime movies that have come before it. This latest iteration in the “psycho third wheel” genre offers up absolutely no surprises, and is probably one the most dull and predictable films in this wasteland filmgoers call September..."
"...Egress is everything in these situations, and director Kren and cinematographer Moritz Schultheisse make the most of the inherent claustrophobia and lack of a clear escape route. Short, sharp, and sometimes shocking, Rammbock is a poignant slice (or is that bite?) of Berlin-based un-life..."
"...Look for a select assortment of artisanal cheeses, fine chocolates, beer and wine, and fresh flowers while a better selection of local and area produce is in the works... Speaking of SoCo, construction has finally begun at Home Slice Pizza (1415 S..."
"...Apparently not. Monster-in-Law is a banal and lukewarm slice of romantic comedy and family histrionics that is as soft and ephemeral as any colorized Ted Turner outing..."
"...Starring: Vincent Gallo, Christina Ricci, Ben Gazzara, Anjelica Huston, Mickey Rourke, Kevin Corrigan, Rosanna Arquette and Jan-Michael Vincent. “Indie! Indie! Indie!��� is the unspoken mantra behind enfant terrible Gallo's directorial debut (he was previously seen in Palookaville as well as a series of Calvin Klein ads), and though independent cinema in America has, at this stage, been almost completely co-opted by the major studios, Gallo's battle cry makes for a fiercely humorous slice of unreality that soars even when it's crawling in the gutter and puking on itself..."
"...Starring: Ryan Phillipe, John Savage, Nastassja Kinski, Jenny Lewis, Shirley Knight, Adam Burke, Devon Michael, Tyrin Turner and John Doman. Messy, confusing, and chock-full of improbable plotting, this locally shot slice of white-trash pie still manages to be affecting at times, in part due to John Frick's eerily barren production design and a freakish, thoroughly unnerving turn from Savage (best remembered as the doomed combat photographer in Oliver Stone's Salvador)..."
"...She, instead, allows the occasional humor to pool around her, instinctively realizing that to force a chuckle is just as bad as coercing a sob. Cassavetes' directing debut is a marvelous slice of life, all the more revelatory for its punchy, boisterous performances and subtle direction..."
"...Starring: Katerina Golubeva, Richard Courcet, Vincent Dupont, Laurent Grevill, Ira Mandella-Paul, Alex Descas and Irina Grjebina. I Can't Sleep is an eerie, edgy slice of contemporary French life, seen as though through a cracked window..."
"...Starring: Alfre Woodard, Delroy Lindo, David Patrick Kelly, Zelda Harris, Carlton Williams, Sharif Rashed, Tse-Mach Washington and Christopher Knowings. Spike Lee's follow-up to his grand-scale bio-epic Malcolm X is a slice-of-life family drama set in 1970s Brooklyn..."
"...Starring: Laura Dern, Robert Duvall, Diane Ladd, Lukas Haas and John Heard. Rambling Rose is a warm, winning slice of life set in 1935 Georgia..."
"...Their commercial kimchi idea evolved into a full-blown Korean barbecue operation (kogi is Korean for "meat"). Before launching their trailer, Sass worked for the Uchi family while Lang was a part of the Home Slice crew..."
"...Jen Strickland and Terri Hannifin created the Carnival o' Pizza as an homage to the neighborhood block parties and street festivals of their New York childhoods, and their customers at Home Slice Pizza (1415 S. Congress, 444-7437, www.homeslicepizza.com) have totally embraced the annual celebration..."
"...Until recently, my Facebook cover photo featured a print of gooey pepperoni pies. My equally food-obsessed best friend and I plan to get friendship tattoos of a slice – wearing sunglasses and riding a skateboard – forever saying that we really like dining together..."
"...Still, you can’t argue the point that Un Gallo, which is aimed at a young audience, will inculcate kids to the idea the cockfighting is a natural, normal activity. There’s no bloody, entrail-laden sawdust in this version of rooster-on-rooster ultraviolence, just talking chickens and eggs, and a silent slice of bipedal bacon...."
"...A slice of Northern Irish history provides the setting for “Boogaloo and Graham,” a more nakedly sentimental coming-of-age yarn concerning two Belfast boys and the chickens they raise as pets amid the Troubles of 1978. Director Michael Lennox does his best Rob Reiner impression here, laying in a wistful voiceover amid playful hijinks and the occasional pocket of darkness before capping things off with a feel-good doo-wop tune...."
