Pi Day is Upon Us with Cheesy Specials Galore

A cheesy spread at Via 313

THERE’S NO EXCUSE to not get in on the piping-hot pie deals today, March 14, a.k.a. Pi Day. Some celebrations last all month, so don’t miss the fun. The pie’s the limit!


Via 313

Via 313's Redwing Pizza

This new Detroit-style, Austin-born pizza joint is paying homage to its roots with the Red Wing Pizza — named after Detroit’s hockey team — available through March 31. This beauty is crafted with fresh mozzarella, garlic, natural casing pepperoni, marinated tomatoes and red onions, fresh Parmesan and basil. Yes, please!

North Italia

Craving pi-gantic flavors? On March 14, the popular eatery will kick off its month-long Pi Day celebration by launching 10 regional pizzas and one national pie, each inspired by both regions in Italy and North Italia’s restaurant locations across the country. Each regional pizza was dreamt up by a North Italia chef and pays homage to a region in Italy. Houston locations at CityCentre and The Woodlands will offer The Heatwave (isn’t that appropriate?), inspired by Calabria and made with nduja, poached shrimp, potato, charred green onion and caciovallo. The nation-wide Hot Honey & Smoked Prosciutto pie will also surely be a hit. The $20 pies are available at their respective locations through April 10 for dine-in, takeout, or delivery via DoorDash.

Home Slice

Home Slice

Another Austin-born pizzeria, Home Slice in Midtown serves New York-style pies with 2-3 toppings. But Houstonians wanted more, so on March 14, they are rolling out the new ‘supreme’ style. Referred to as #8, the supreme will be topped with pepperoni, Italian sausage, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and black olives. On Pi Day, slices of the newbie will be available at the Houston shop for $3.14. “Ever since we opened in Houston, people have been asking us for a supreme pizza,” explains Home Slice Partner Jeff Mettler. “This is new for us, but the people have spoken and we’re finally ready to make the supremea permanent menu item.”

Pizzana

Pizzana

Want a piece of LA’s hottest pie? In other pizza news, Pizzana will be the newest kid on the block in burgeoning River Oaks Shopping Center when it opens later this month. Expect tons of creative options with consciously sourced toppings like the Corbarina with squash blossoms, burrata and gremolata. LA’s best Caesar salad, Best Cali-Ital, and Essential West LA Restaurants are a few of its many accolades. We’ll be reporting back on this!

Ancient French Wellness Cures Reimagined at Houston’s Escape Spa: The Power of Vichy

Serial entrepreneur and spa visionary LeBrina Jackson

NESTLED IN THE heart of France, the town of Vichy holds a rich history in the world of wellness and hydrotherapy. Acquiring fame for their alkaline springs in the 17th century, the Romans were among the first to recognize the therapeutic benefits of the springs. They established a French spa known as “Vichy,” which still exists today and continues to attract spa-goers from around the world to experience the transformative effects of hydrotherapy.

Parties

DINNER ON THE stage is always a special privilege for arts patrons — and the annual Houston Symphony Wine Dinner and Collector’s Auction, served on the stage of the Jesse H. Jones Hall for the Performing Arts, was arguably even more spectacular than usual. After all, in addition to the uniquely striking setting, Symphony supporters also were treated a multi-course meal by chef Aaron Bludorn, paired with wines chosen by John and Lindy Rydman and Lisa Rydman Lindsey of Spec’s Wines, Spirits & Finer Foods.
