Philadelphia Neighborhood Spotlight: Fishtown & Pizza Brain

1 comment

HEY KICKSTARTERers!

As we move ever closer toward the finish line (12 days to go and almost 80% funded!), we'll be rolling out little stories fairly regularly, telling the deeper story of what truly makes team pizza brain tick.

In that spirit, today's post comes by way of the organization Philadelphia Neighborhoods - part of the Temple University film department. Recently they stopped by our space and talked to us a bit about pizza, our collection, and why we love fishtown so dang much.

FULL ARTICLE & VIDEO HERE: HERE

in the next few days we'll be posting a few videos spotlighting our menu, our passion for pizza-making and the stories behind our wonderful pizza maestro's Joe & Auston. Without a doubt, it's sure to be hot & delicious! Until then,

xoxo, 

team pizza brain

      Even here on the West Coast we are awaiting the Grand Opening of Pizza Brain so we can add it to our list of destination points for future East Coast trips. Looking forward to the museum, good food, and experience. T & MB
