Best Bites Preview: Mikey’s Late Night Slice
UPDATE: As of Noon on 3/21, Best Bites: Pizza is officially sold out!
On March 24th, Columbus Underground will be hosting Best Bites: Pizza — a celebration of the city’s best pizza shops, pizza food trucks, restaurants and more. A limited number of tickets are still available, so be sure to purchase yours online before they’re sold out. To get your tastebuds watering, we’ll be previewing what each of our participating pizza makers will be showcasing at the event:
In 2009, Mikey’s Late Night Slice was born out of an epiphany by founder, Mikey Sorboro, that Columbus was missing a late night pizza joint. Beginning as a humble pizza shack in the Short North, they have seen much success, growing into 2 food trucks and 5 brick and mortar locations. With a mission to offer a pizza experience for their customers and create loyal and raving fans, the company continues to grow in locations while expanding their menu.
At Best Bites: Pizza, Mikey’s Late Night Slice will be featuring three of their traditional pizzas. Their Cheese, Plain-Ass Pepperoni and Spicy-Ass Pepperoni pizzas will be served up with all the unique humor and charm they are known for.

A portion of the proceeds from all ticket sales will be donated to Neighborhood Services, Inc., a local charity that works to alleviate poverty and provide food services here in Columbus. The Columbus Underground Best Bites event series have collectively raised over $10,000 for local charities since August 2014.
