Food Week at the Fool: Pizza Day!

One of the perks of working at The Motley Fool is how awesome of an environment it is to work in. Before the Fool, I never really cared about sharing the details of my job with anyone, because really, they’re all the same.  There are varying levels of purgatory, but most jobs are still squarely in purgatory.  I can only imagine Dante rolling around in his grave at such thoughts.  

I hesitate to say thiss, for fear of being struck down from the heavens, but the Fool is stationed in paradise.  And not just because of the pizza, though that’s what I’m covering today.

Pizza day is a tradition at the Fool, insofar as it has its own ‘time of the month’ and that stays constant.  The last Friday of the month is the customary time for Pizza, as it should be.  When you need to feed hundreds of people, you can’t just call up your local Papa Johns and tell them you need 100 Pizzas.  It doesn’t work like that.  So we have pizzas from just about every local Pizzaria in town, as well as the standard ‘chain’ pizza stores:

In Google ranked order for “Pizza, Alexandria VA”:


  • Valentinos

  • Bugsy’s Pizza
  • Faccia Luna
  • Delia’s Brick Oven Pizza
  • Bertucci’s
  • Pizzeria Venti
  • Pizza Pan
  • Red Rock’s Pizza
  • Generous George’s Positive Pizza and Pasta
  • Ledo Pizza
  • Vocelli’s Pizza
  • Primo Pizza
  • Domino’s Pizza
  • Papa John’s Pizza
  • and others I may have missed.
The Pizza is ‘old hat’, something we do every month.  What makes this particular Pizza day special (or more special than having work sponsered Pizza every motn) is that today’s Pizza is accompanied by Wine tasting from Le Tastevin Fine Wines.
But wait, there’s more!
Not only do we get to sample wine, but also making an appearance are the craftsmen of Alexandria’s newest (and only) brewery, Port City Brewery! If you’re interested in a history of Port City, there’s a great write-up here.
I’m on vacation, so I won’t be able to live-tweet images from today’s events. Mea culpa and all that.
