WASHINGTON DC: Two of the Food Groups - Beer & Pizza - at Pizzeria Paradiso All Through December

With the holiday season officially upon us, Pizzeria Paradiso will celebrate with a fundraising collaboration with DC Brau benefiting Bread for the City, a Christmas –themed Monday Night Beer Club tap takeover where all staff tips will be donated to DC Greens, a Hardywood Gingerbread Stout tasting (complete with a gingerbread house making station) and the restaurant’s annual Give a Can Get a Can fundraiser. There will be a special pizza of the month available December 26 through January 3, inspired by the Southern tradition of eating greens and black eyed peas around New Year’s Day.

December/New Year’s Special Pizza: 12.26 – 1.3
The special pizza of the month, inspired by Southern “lucky food” traditions enjoyed around New Year’s Day, is available at all Pizzeria Paradiso locations from January 26 through January 3. The pizza includes North Carolina BBQ sauce, pulled pork, collard greens, black eyed peas, green tomatoes, corn, cheddar cheese and onions and costs $14 for a small pizza and $20 for a large pizza.

Spent Grain Crust Collaboration with DC Brau Supporting Bread for the City: 11.25 – 12.25 **ALL LOCATIONS
To kick off a month of spent grain crust, Pizzeria Paradiso and DC Brau donated 150 loaves of bread to Bread for the City on November 23, the day before Thanksgiving. For the 6th year in a row, Pizzeria Paradiso has partnered with DC Brau and Bread for the City on a fundraising venture where spent grains from the brewery are used to make a special pizza crust, as well as loaves of bread. Proceeds from the sale of the pizzas will go directly to Bread for the City. The spent grain promotion started on Friday, November 25 and will be available through December 24 at all three Pizzeria Paradiso locations. The 9” pizza crusts will be available for $2 and the 12” crusts for $3.
