ALL HAIL PIZZA WEEK! From April 15-20, the Portland Mercury’s Pizza Week will make its long-awaited return, 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!

Okay, are we all done hailing Pizza Week? Cool. Before digging in, here are a few things to keep in mind:
• Everyone loves Pizza Week! As one of the city’s most beloved food events, the Portland Mercury’s Pizza Week is popular—which means that some locations will be busy, and other locations might sell out of their sought-after slices. When facing such challenges, just visit another Pizza Week location, or come back the next day! You’ll get pizza either way, so it’ll be a win-win.
• Tip, and tip well! An event as big as Pizza Week takes a ton of work—so show your appreciation to the chefs, the waitstaff, and the mad pizza scientists who make this event such a wondrous pinnacle of delicious beauty.
• Don’t forget sides and drinks! As we all know, the average human body is 60 percent water, 30 percent pizza, and 10 percent a black, timeless void where your soul went to die. Do your best to fill up that horrifying and lifeless chasm with the scrumptious sides and drinks available at all Pizza Week locations!
• At portlandpizzaweek.com, you’ll find even more info about Pizza Week—including live updates and an interactive map of all Pizza Week locations! And you can find even more about Pizza Week with #portlandpizzaweek on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
