More prizes for Monday! Yesterday we told you about Pogo Events and its Amazing NY Scavenger Hunt—the best way to have fun rediscovering your city, of course. But what if you want to drill down a little deeper? What if you don't just want to rediscover NYC, you want to rediscover NYC through the prism of our city's single greatest contribution to human history: the legend that is pizza.
See, there's this guy named Scott. He's obsessed with pizza, and not in the way that nearly every person who's been alive in a Western city in the past 40 years is: I'm talking really obsessed. (I'd say it's creepy, but hey, he made a career out of it.) Thus, Scott's Pizza Tours: Scott started a company that today offers "New York's Cheesiest Guided Tour" (snicker). On a bus or by foot, for the public or private, hole-in-the-wall slice shops to chichi but still delicious Italian temples: Scott covers it all, along the way schooling you on the history and import of that most immortal of foodstuffs. (I can tell you that Lombardi's on Spring Street was the country's first pizzeria, but that's about where my NYC pizza expertise tops out. So don't look at me.)
Scott has generously donated a couple of passes to an upcoming tour to Monday's prize haul, because we always like to keep our winners well supplied with information and deliciousness. Scott (or another qualified pizza professional) leads a tour multiple times each week, so you have literally no excuse to engage in this tremendous adventure of NYC tastiness (unless you're lactose intolerant, in which case…um, try the garlic knots! Though hey, they do a gluten-free tour!). Learn more at ScottsPizzaTours.com.
