We're still a more than a month in advance of this particular event, but I wanted to make sure you fine readers marked this event on your calendars. Slice of the Highlands is the perfect storm of pizza, beer, wine, my neighborhood, and one of my favorite charities. Sounds like, too, the event may go a little way to declare a victor in the "Pizza Wars" of the Highlands. Unscientifically, of course. But it will certainly give some restaurant certain bragging rights.
From the website:
The Original Highlands Neighborhood Association (OHNA), along with its Charitable Partner Gilda’s Club Louisville are happy to announce “A Slice of the Highlands,” a compelling pizza competition and silent auction event aimed to raise awareness and funds for these organization and to put on a whimsical (yet competitive) event that draws neighborhood participation and goodwill. We are grateful for our beer and wine sponsors, Kentucky Ale and The Wine Market, respectively.
In addition to the pizza restaurants already on board, the planning committee invites any and all pizza restaurants in The Highlands to participate. Awards will be given for People’s Choice as well as Critics Choice. Pizza competitors include Papalino’s NY Pizzeria, Famous BoomBozz Pizza, Spinelli's, Bearno’s, and ZA’s. More competitors may be added.
Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Ticket purchase will include pizza from all the pizza competitors, beer and wine tastings, dessert, live music and the right to vote for your favorite pizza.
The event will be held at the Church of the Advent from 630pm-900p on September 23. Don't forget that the event also includes a silent auction-- bring your checkbooks and help support Gilda's Club. (Do people still HAVE checkbooks? I haven't seen mine in months!)
