Celebrate Crawfish Season at Goode Co.

Seafood and Goode Co. Taqueria). Order online for pickup on Saturday or Sunday, or simply show up and roll the dice; the pop-up begins at noon and goes until the goods are sold out.

Advance orders must be placed by Friday at 5pm.

Nerd Out for Pi Day

What better way to celebrate Pi Day than with $3.14 slices of pizza?! Head over to Little Woodrow's in EaDo Sunday to catch this killer deal. Grimaldi's Pizzaeria has carryout specials on Sunday, like an 18-inch pizza, small salad and two fountain drinks for $25. Meanwhile, North Italia has added new pies to its menu in honor of March 14, like the andouille-creole pizza with Vietnamese creole pickles.
