Welcome to the Pizzaiolos Meetup group: the funniest, best-looking, all-around-awesomest eating-out Meetup group in Portland. And perhaps the world.
As pizzaiolos, our love of pizza is strong. We will be trying pizzerias all over town to determine which one we like best. We will also meet at one another's homes to create our favorite pizzas, share tips and recipes. And sometimes, we will go completely off the rails and eat things that are not pizza.
To combat the inconvenience of no-shows, we will ban members after three instances. Feel free to revise your RSVP right up until the last minute - but don't just not show up.
Please bring cash to Meetups. Let's not be those people that ask the server to split the check into seven different amounts on seven cards. Nobody likes those people.
And if you're part of the legion of former New Yorkers who feel compelled to wax rhapsodic about NYC pizza and talk about how hard it is to find good pizza in Portland... save it.
