The weather looks like it’s going to be great Thursday evening: high 70s and sunny. A great night for a walk and a slice of pizza!
It all starts at the Grandview Grind: Stop by a pick up a map. This walking tour (max 3.5 miles to tag all the pizza shops) will take you down great, pedestrian-friendly streets. You’ll get a chance to try a variety of pizzas from the area, wander the neighborhood, enjoy the weather and maybe learn a little about the Italian heritage of the area.

And, thanks to Columbus Underground for such a great forum to post community events! I specifically asked several people how they found out about the event, and they mentioned this site! As always, you provide a place to have a community conversation about “all things Columbus”!
And, “Crawlers” let us know your favorites – either through Columbus Underground, on our FifthbyNorthwest Facebook page, via Twitter at #5thbyNW – or via our Web page at http://www.fifthbynorthwest.org. We had 152 participants, 9 pizza shops, 3+ miles walked tonight, and 81 degrees – we couldn’t have asked for a better night! Go 5XNW!September 14, 2012 6:54 am at 6:54 am #512527
Dropped by late as I had some meetings. I thought all the pizza we tried tasted great (it’s pizza after all) but I especially enjoyed Cowtown. That was the first time I had their pizza as well as many others. A close second was Piazza, but we never would have noticed or found their location if it had not been for the map. (They are roughly behind Giant Eagle at the far end of the Grinder’s strip on a street/alley called Ida.) We were surprised that Panzera’s did not participate (people on their patio asked us why we were carrying around plates of pizza and a map).
It was a nice event and we hope to make it out there next year! Thanks 5xNW commission!
