Pizza Brain turns one, this Saturday

We can’t believe it has already been an entire year since Brian Dwyer and company opened up the first ever World Record certified pizza museum right here in Philadelphia.

Pizza Brain has easily become one of our favorite spots to grab a slice of ooey gooey ‘za in the city. With the establishment’s anniversary just around the corner, Pizza Brain is doing what any dedicated band of pizza heads would do: Pizza party!

On Saturday, September 7, the Fishtown pizza shop will be throwing down a party of epic proportions. Pizza Brain is doing it carnival style on Frankford Avenue with various forms of entertainment like juggling, fire breathing, caricatures, face painters, a live musical performance from Philly’s own stuffed-crust punk band Pizza Face, an appearance by Splinter from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie series and an appearance by Lisa A. Sturz, a talented puppeteer who has worked on such films as Little Shop of Horrors, Robocop 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Oh, and can we talk about the food? Not only will PB will dishing out their usual tasty slices, they’ll also be creating an exclusive pretzel pizza – a creation we’re itching to try. Everyone's favorite weird ice cream pioneers Little Baby’s will be scooping out their one-of-a-kind pizza ice cream (something you MUST try) and free beer will be provided by Philly Homebrew Outlet.

Finally, to commemorate the milestone event, artist Killer Acid has created a ton of cool Pizza Brain themed stickers (which you can view right now on their Instagram feed). There will also be new pizza memorabilia installations – the collection is constantly growing – and customized artist designed pizza boxes.

Saturday, September 7, 5 – 11 PM
Pizza Brain, 2313 Frankford Ave.
Free and open to the public. More Info.
