Pizza Brain opens September 7th.  They are even going to have pizza flavored ice cream.

I donít think I would like the taste of pizza ice cream, but then I never tasted it.   :-\

I just saw last Saturday the guys from Pizza Brain were getting ready to put their first pizza in the oven.  Lol, the picture is funny.  :-D

I love these guys, but I hope they wear something other than tank tops for pizza prep. Don't want a short-and-curly in my pie.
°Hasta la pizza!

It's going to be a really cool spot! Mainly a restaurant with Brian's amazing pizza collection displayed throughout. I'm going to the opening, I think I'm wearing a big inflatable pizza suit for them. Let me know if anybody's going to if anyone's interested in hitching a ride.

I don't doubt that it'll be cool. I think Brain's a good guy and his love of pizza is infectious. Was just sayin' I hope they wear some kitchen whites or somethin'. ;)

I'd go, but I'm stuck at home with baby duty.
°Hasta la pizza!

Scott,

I also would like to go, but don't think I will make it the first week they are open.  I gotta wait for a ride.  That sure would be neat if you wore a big inflatable pizza suit.   8)

The Pizzeria: Leave all expectations of high-minded, wood- or coal-fired pies at the door -- they're doing classic, gooey, gas-ovened slices, all prepped on a bed of secret-recipe house sauce. The whole thing'll be run right in the middle of the museum, and feature combos like prosciutto/date/thyme and sweet potato/gorgonzola, and even a few insane, undisclosed jawns like French Onion Soup, which sounds like exactly the kind of slice that could take you out of your next Blue Period.

I never heard of French Onion Soup pizza.  :-\
