Pizza Wars IV Coming Back to Wallingford’s Villa Capri

by Harriman Real Estate on March 27, 2015

2015 Pizza Wars at Villa Capri Pizza Wars IV Coming to Back Wallingford’s Villa Capri

Pizza: from the Latin pinsere, meaning “to press”. No matter what the etymology of the delicacy is, to those who love it it means, “Good God, let’s eat!”, and on April 9th, pizza lovers can unite under one roof to do just that.

On that date, Wallingford’s Villa Capri Restaurant will once again host Pizza Wars, the area’s epic battle for pizza pie supremacy, from 5:30pm to 7:45pm. So far, hostess Dee Babkirk has seven pizza shops from Wallingford that have signed on to bring their best creations to share with the public.

Here is a list of this years entrants:

(And there still may be more signing up; if so, I will update this post ASAP)

Pizzas will be judged by the crowd and a panel of elite judges who will deliberate over crust, sauce, cheese, spices and toppings to come up with a winner in three categories:

  • Best Overall (Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice)
  • Best Cheese Pizza (People’s Choice)
  • Best Specialty Pizza (People’s Choice)

Entrance fee for this grand event is $10 at the door, and there will be a DJ, a cash bar, and raffles. We’ve attended this event every time it’s been held, and can honestly say we’ve had some really good pizza, some really radical pizza, and a lot of fun! What makes this event even more special is that a portion of the proceeds will be donated to three great local charities dedicated to our military: Operation First Response, Help Our Military Heroes (HOMH), and the Iwo Jima Memorial Historical Foundation, Inc.

Pizza Wars IV at Villa Capri in Wallingford CT

So give the Cook the night off and come on down to the Villa Capri and sink your teeth into some of the best pizza this side of Little Italy!

 

Some pizza facts:

  • Pizza is a Greek creation (but the Italians perfected it!)
  • In 1987, October was designated National Pizza Month
  • Americans eat approximately 100 acres of pizza each day, or 350 slices per second.
  • Approximately 3 billion pizzas are sold in the U.S. each year.
  • Most popular topping: pepperoni
  • Least popular topping: anchovies
  • Sixty-two percent of Americans prefer meat toppings on their pizza, while 38% prefer vegetarian
  • 61% prefer thin crust, 28% prefer thick crust /deep dish, and 11% like extra thin crust.
  • More pizza is consumed during Super Bowl Week than any other week of the year.
  • The world’s largest pizza was built on October 11, 1987 by Lorenzo Amato and Louis Piancone. The pizza covered 10,000 square feet and measured 140 feet across. It weighed in at 44,457 pounds, consisting of, among other items, 18,174 pounds of flour, 1,103 pounds of water, 6,445 pounds of sauce, 9,375 pounds of cheese and 2,387 pounds of pepperoni. The pie was cut into 94,248 slices and eaten by more than 30,000 spectators at the baking in Havana, Florida.

“Mark the calendar, save the date, see you there and don’t be late!”

Splat Art Studio Open House at Harriman Real Estate

by Harriman Real Estate on March 4, 2015

I recently posted about the latest artists to be featured on our Wallingford Inspires art wall, the kids from Splat Art Studio, and it’s getting very close to the time for them to show off their amazing works to the public! Read on for details…

When: Monday, March 9th 2015

Hours: 6:00PM to 7:30PM

Where: Harriman Real Estate LLC office, 116 Center Street, Wallingford

Who’s Invited: Everyone!

Who to contact: Pat Harriman, 203-605-3873

The art being displayed is all from some very special kids, and it’s all very creative, colorful and a treat to see! As you can see from the examples here, it’s hard to believe that some of these weren’t done by more mature artists, but that’s a tribute to the expert tutelage of their teacher, Kate McNamee. We hope you’ll  be able to come out and show your appreciation of that work these kids have produced and enjoy some light refreshments, too!

Art work from Splat Art Studio is being featured on our Wallingford Inspires art wall
