Adventure #56: Blue Dog Pizza

In a stark contrast to last week's adventure, the food trailer court where Blue Dog Pizza sits was deserted on a Tuesday evening. We suspect that Tuesday nights during the winter are the "off season". The proprietor, who was very nice and made us feel welcome, had his book out and after browsing the menu, I sat at one of the picnic tables to wait for Ian and read my own book. The weather was cool and the lighting was perfect, so it was a wonderfully low-key start to the night.

Once Ian arrived we sat about picking out pizzas. This was a little more difficult than one would expect as they were out of several things (including breadsticks and their signature Blue Dog), but we settled on the Cerberus and the Pluto.

We're Back!

After a nearly year-long hiatus, Karin and I have returned to the blog that brought us together. We've had some personal challenges and tragedies, but the pizza landscape in Austin is ever-changing and we've got to get back out there and do our civic pizza duty!

We're going to get some new features on the blog in the next month, but until then, enjoy our most recent adventure: Pinthouse Pizza, a place that didn't exist when we rode the pizza horse into the twilight last year.

Adventure #55: Pinthouse Pizza

Do you like beer? Then you're in luck when you visit Pinthouse Pizza. Their tap list is long and delectable. They brew their own beer. They're hopheads. They had a fantastic mole stout that tasted like abuela herself brewed it. The ambiance even reflects a classic German beer hall style, with long benches throughout the open space. . .wait a second. . .this place is a bar!
