Hi Folks,

This is mainly for our followers in the Charlotte area where, aside from the national scandal of our mayor resigning over corruption charges (how embarrassing for us all here in this most aspirational of cities, the worst news since the days of Jim and Tammy Fay Baker at the nearby PTL Club and “theme park” — but don’t get me start), tonight we offer a more positive opportunity: Pure Pizza is hosting a food truck rally at our new, still under construction, location in the part of town called Area 15 (between NODA and Plaza Midwood). It is located at 16th St, between N. Davidson and N. Caldwell Streets, and you are all invited. We’ll have beverages and, who knows, maybe some pizza from our original location, and you can see where the new operation will be when we open it in a couple of months, plus, some great food truck food and music. It all happens from 5-8 PM tonight. I’ll be there for the first hour if you want to swing by and say hello, or come when you can and get some great food and see how Area 15 is in the process of revitalizing and repurposing an old mill section of town into the next “hot spot” in this still most aspirational of cities, despite the bleak breaking news this very morning about the (now former) mayor — we’ll get over it and what better way than by celebrating with food, music, and, of course, pizza. Hope to see you there!

The event was a huge hit last night — over 300 people showed up, nice band, kind of a Woodstock feel about it (albeit, a tad smaller). For some reason, Area 15 (the nickname of the neighborhood where we’re opening the second Pure Pizza) has such a 60’s feel — I thought I was having a flashback!! Looking forward to getting the doors open in a few months….

I would have loved to partake! That sounds like a super time. :) What a great way to start spring.
