Joyeux Anniversaire Pizzeria Paradiso

Since I grew up in Paris and went to college in Montreal, turning 21 wasn’t a big deal for me. At all. Turning 20, on the other hand, was an important milestone. And it was all about ME! Me having a big party. Me getting lots of presents. Me me me. But not all 20 years old are as selfish as I was. Some, like Pizzeria Paradiso, are actually very generous when it come to celebrating turning the big 2-0, throwing themselves a 20 something anniversary party and inviting anyone to take advantage of a week long of 20-something theme deals:

  • Monday, Nov. 7th: $20 tale out (one small + one large pizza)
  • Tuesday, Nov. 8th: beer glass give-away (buy a beer, keep the glass!)
  • Wednesday, Nov. 9th: $20 all you can eat beer & pizza (up to 2 drinks…)
  • Thursday, Nov. 10th: $20 small pizza paired with anniversary beer
  • Friday, Nov. 11th: pay just 20 cents for your first beer 
  • Saturday, Nov. 12th: 20 cents toppings (3 toppings max.)
  • Sunday, Nov. 13th: bring your kids to the Old Town location between 1-4PM where they can learn to make their own pizza with Chef Ruth Gresser (first 20 kids’ pizzas are free too!)

I had the pleasure of trying my hand at making my own pizza (with anchovies and olives, my two favourite pizza toppings, bien sur) with chef and owner Ruth Gresser at a preview event last week and it was a ton of fun! And while I typically pair my pizza with wine (like a Sangiovese), Pizzeria Paradiso – or should I say Birreria Paradiso – is known for its impressive beer list and beer pairing so I tried to be open-minded and gave that pairing a try. Perhaps even a little too open minded 😉 After a few glass of the anniversary ale I left my uncooked pizza behind. Le sigh. Oh well, looks like I’ll just have to go back. Maybe even as early as Thursday for $20 pizza and a glass (just one!) of anniversary ale…

Pizzeria Paradiso is celebrating its big 2-0 anniversary at all 3 of its locations: 3282 M Street NW (Georgetown), 2003 P Street NW (Dupont Circle), 124 King Street (Old Town Alexandria) from Monday, November 7th through Sunday, November 13th.
