Went to this event at Huntington Park last year and had a great time! You can stuff yourself with 20+ different types of pizzas. Great for kids as they had all-you-can-eat ice cream as well. If you eat pizza once a year, this is the time to do it! I did notice that Huntington Park allowed the pizzerias use of their ovens. Will there be some type of giant oven tent to mimic this?September 17, 2012 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #512888

I was able to make it out with my family. Great crowd! Some familiar faces such as Late Nite Slice and some different faces that only locals would recognize (such as Little Sicly’s for me!). Some of the lines were 50 yards long but it moved really, really quick because you didn’t have to pay per slice but rather had an “all you can eat” ticket. I kept wondering if and how this concept could be applied to the food truck fest, which I’ve decided is no longer worth it to me because of the long waits and longer ticket times… ?September 20, 2012 2:52 pm at 2:52 pm #512892
This looked like a fun event, but I hope they don’t start making it a habit to close Columbus Commons off to the public for “ticketed events” on a regular basis; or, at least, not on weeknights. Now that the sidewalk on the east side of High is closed, and both eastern corners at Rich & High are closed, I had a really annoying experience trying to get from my office to City Center garage.September 20, 2012 3:23 pm at 3:23 pm #512893

I thought it was a little annoying when they did this for Picnic with the Pops, but at the same time I’d rather see hundreds/thousands of extra people Downtown attending a ticketed event than being able to walk/run through an empty park with no one around. ;)September 20, 2012 3:31 pm at 3:31 pm #512894
Oh, I don’t object to the use of or even the closing of the park in general – I’m very happy to see these events coming downtown. I just wish they had given some extra consideration due to the fact that the sidewalks are now closed; perhaps opening a part of the sidewalk that isn’t under construction yet, or some sort of compromise. I even heard several people walking near me who were planning to attend the event saying, “How the heck do we get over there?”
Or maybe I’m just bitter that I had other plans that night and couldn’t attend the Pizza Event….. it looked (and smelled) awesome! :)September 20, 2012 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #512895
I was working like 100 feet away and could see and smell it the entire time. Brutal.
