Let the bells ring and the confetti fall: PIZZA WEEK IS BACK, AND IT'S HAPPENING NOW!
That's right, running now through Sunday, April 25, the Portland Mercury's Pizza Week has returned and is giving pizza-loving Mercury readers the chance to get special slices from some of Portland's finest purveyors of pizza pies... for a mere two dollars each! That's right: Each slice is just TWO MEASLY DOLLARS or, at participating venues, a WHOLE PIE for $16. (You heard correctly: This year certain Pizza Week participants may be offering $16 whole pies along with slices, or just whole pies alone. Be sure to check our Pizza Week locations to see who is offering what!)
Along with our pizza-loving pals at the SPLIFF Film Festival (tickets on sale now!) and EverOut Portland (the greatest event calendar in the city), the Mercury is proud to present what might be our greatest Pizza Week lineup ever—one that features 24 different pizzas at 30 Portland locations, available across the city and lovingly crafted by your favorite pizza masterminds.
