It is officially MARCH MADNESS!!! I have a fun deal from Russo’s Pizzeria to share with you, but first lets talk sports! Did you make a bracket? Did your team make it to the big dance?? Can I just say, I LOVE March Madness. During my college and law school years my school (Mizzou) was often a contender for the big tournament. For me, there is not a college championship series more fun that basketball! I was generally an avid watcher until a couple of years ago when my school lost in the first round to a lower seed. IT STILL HURTS!!! The good news is my school is making some big moves during this off season with a new coach and recruiting a top player. All this means is my obnoxious March Madness days may soon return!!
So it is March Madness season and Russo’s wants to ensure that you keep them in mind for watch parties! This Wednesday’s Russo’s invited me and a group of friends out for a March Madness pizza party! Remember pizza party days back in elementary school? Just think that, with the addition of WINE. For March Madness, Russo’s is offering a 28 inch party pizza that can serve 8-10 people!
The pizza can be divided into four sections which seemed like four medium pizzas. We ordered pepporoni, Hawaiian, margarita and the chicken rustica. Then you have the choice of cutting the pizza into slices or squares. You would have thought our waitress was asking us what we wanted on our headstone with the type of contemplation we did! Squares won out and that is probably for the best so you can try all four.
I remember gimmicky large pizzas when I was a kid and honestly most of them were not tasty. This pizza though is delicious! The group consensus was that the chicken rustica was the best.
I held my pizza party at the midtown location on a Wednesday evening. Any given day, this location offers house wines for $6.50 a glass. Oh but on Wednesdays they are half off! As if that deal was not enough, our waitress informed of us their new brunch party starting this Sunday. Brunch will feature $10 mimosa PITCHERS. Do y’all know how many places in town charge $10 just for one glass?? That is a steal.
If you are having any March Madness watch parties or want to gather at a spot to watch, consider Russo’s for both! While all of their pizzas and deals are great, the giant pizza is a great way to feed a bunch of people and accommodate all of their tastes!
