there's a photo slideshow at the bottom of the page, including a pie shot.

I love the ninja turtle picture in the slideshow.

For anyone interested in Pizza Brain.

Slideshow photos of Pizza Brain Grand Opening.

Video of Grand Opening and more photos.

http://philadelphia.foobooz.com/2012/09/10/about-last-friday-pizza-brains-grand-opening/

I saw there is a signed menu from the men you started Pizza Brain on eBay from their opening night.  A man is trying to fundraise for Pizza Brain.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130764531782

Hawk Krall (a blogger) is painting an interesting mural in the backyard of Pizza Brain featuring something like 150 Philadelphians (some famous, some infamous and some not really famous) devouring pizza together.

This two older articles tells more about Little Babyís Ice Cream.

Thanks for the links, norma! i was trying to get a good view of the menu, but couldn't see it well until the ebay auction. sounds delicious, if you ask me! and, i noticed on the bottom of the menu.... delivery coming soon! i wonder how many museums can tout that?

And the Pizzalebrity Wall Of Fame Mural.. hilarious! what a bunch of cards these guys are! Only thing I don't like is them not holding true to their hours. that's a bit of a disappointment. You've got to build trust with your peeps, and not being open is less than trustworthy. I hope the get it together on that account.

weemis,

I donít know if you saw, but this is Pizza Brain website.  http://www.pizzabrain.org/   This is the downloaded menu from that website.  http://www.pizzabrain.org/PizzaBrain-Menu-September2012.pdf   There are also a couple of videos on their website.  Some are funny if you scroll down in the right.

Will wait and see what happens with opening hours.  Steve said we might take a road trip to Philly in the next few weeks.

Thanks, norma! Their character comes through in the menu! Looking forward to your thoughts on the food once you take a trip to check it out (while it's open!).

Craig,

What do you think of Pizza Brain?  Thanks for the additional article.  ;)

The pizza looks tasty to me.  I like the fresh toppings. 

More pictures of Pizza Brain pizzas and lots of other pictures of Pizza Brain on DoughBoys Pizza Blog.

If anyone is interested they can follow the tweetzas from Pizza Brain.

http://twitter.com/mypizzabrain

If you click under the photo from Nicole Brewer there is a funny picture of Brian Dwyer with a pizza costume.

If anyone searches on Google images there are a lot of pictures.

I saw this on Pizza Brain facebook wall today.

After serving thousands of slices and pies this week, Pizza Brain is closed for inventory today. Thanks, Philadelphia for checking us out during our opening week (and for returning again and again). We will be back in full effect resuming our normal hours of operation Tuesday, September 18 at 11am.

A few posters said they had planned to go to Pizza Brain today.

You know what? This is pretty much the only pizza brain I really care about.
