'charity events' on Serious Eats
You may remember when we mentioned that Coffee Bar was set to host San Francisco's "Nomadic Pizza Throw-Down", a mobile vendor pizza taste-off that raised $2480 for tsunami victims in neighboring Japan. At this event four mobile pizzaiolos made pizza for over 300 charitable/hungry people whose $12 admission bought a beverage, a slice from each competitor, and a vote to decide the winner. Coffee Bar called it a "tasty approach to global citizenry". What follows is a rundown of the pizzas sampled from the day.
Scott Wiener (Scott's Pizza Tours) emails us that he's once again putting together the annual Slice Out Hunger charity event. Proceeds go to City Harvest. Tickets are sold at the door and cost $1, each one redeemable for any one of a slice of pizza, a soda, or a raffle ticket. (Obviously you can buy more than one ticket if you're hungry and thirsty and feeling lucky.)
