Heads Up: Pizzerias Close in August

This is the only signage with correct spelling at Pugsley’s in the Bronx.

Check with your destination pizzeria before heading out for a slice safari this month, lots of Italian-owned pizzerias close for a chunk of August. Sam’s on Court Street (Brooklyn) is closed all month, Zero Otto Nove was closed for a week, Mario’s on Arthur Ave closes after this weekend and I’m sure there are a ton more. But even though it’s depressing to find a locked gate at your favorite pizzeria, Pugsley’s on 191st St in the Bronx seems to have found the most lovely way of dishing out the bad news.

Keep the faith and capture the spirit!
