There was a unique frustration when I lived in Rome. You’d get excited about going to lunch, only to arrive and realize that the restaurant was chiuso per giorno di riposo. Closed for a day of rest. I remember it happening a lot on Tuesdays and also on Sundays, obviously. In the always-open United States of America, that is known as the Chick-Fil-A Sunday. You wake up hungover and want a fried chicken sandwich and are all sorts of out of luck (until you remember all of the great fried chicken sandwiches you can get in Austin from local vendors).
But, I digress. Maybe out of consideration for its employees or electric bill or maybe simply to take a page out of Italy’s book, Home Slice Pizza has long been closed on Tuesdays. That problem was somewhat alleviated down in South Austin when More Home Slice opened its windows for Tuesday customers. Now, the problem is being solved up north. The new location on North Loop is now open on Tuesdays. And they are celebrating with all day drink specials on Sept. 25 to Oct. 30, called “3 Cheers for Tuesday!” which includes $3 draft beer pints and glasses of house wine, and $3 off draft cocktails.
And for those of you, like the Twitter follower of mine I can’t seem to locate, who don’t like the zany music-filled hold music you hear when placing a to-go order at Home Slice, you’re in luck. The pizza joint (that also serves some of the best sandwiches in town), now accepts online orders for pick-up.
