A long time ago (last May), in a land not so far away (actually, it was here), I turned 27. I’m big on birthdays, so I knew I wanted to head into my late 20s with a treat. As you all very well know, pizza rules everything around me. So, for this special day, I took on the quite ambitious task of planning my own damn pizza crawl. To sum things up: yes, it was wonderful and satisfying and delicious and so gram-worthy. However, having lived through all the crawling and all the bites, there were some things I would have done differently. From one pizza loving lady to many others, I’m here to share what I learned.
I teamed up with BumbleBFF on this post to share their new app & an upcoming Philly event with all of you!
Picking up and moving to a new city is a daunting task by itself (it’s my reminder that, yes, I am a hoarder). But moving to a city without the comfort your best lady pals close by could be straight up terrifying for (most) women. When I first moved to Philly, I was 22. I had the guy I was dating, and literally zero female friends in the city. In my quest for lady pals (and some of you have met me in person so you know this to be true), my awkward moments shone through. I remember reading these articles about how to not-creepily approach a potential new friend at places like the yoga studio or the grocery store. That was not for me.
In honor of the upcoming holiday, I start off today with things I love having in my life (in order of importance): my family, my friends, a job, and pizza. You know how some people ask you if you’d give up a certain thing for a million dollars? I have thought about this question, just in case I’m ever asked, and my answer is n-o, I would not give up pizza for one million dollars. I have no shame.
When I am in the pizza mood (which is always) & hanging around Rittenhouse, SliCE (1740 Sansom Street) is my go-to. Their Philly locations consistently serve some of the best pizza in Philadelphia, and their monthly specials (like this bacon cheeseburger pizza – hello lady!) are amazing.
So to celebrate the most loved/hated day in the country, my buds over at SliCE want to hook you up. One lucky lil Her Philly reader will win a heart shaped pizza to enjoy on Valentine’s Day with her sweetie (or girlfriends!). Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter, and remember, if you are not located within SliCE’s delivery radius, you’ll have to scoop it up yourself.
If you don’t win a free pizza from me, you can still order a heart shaped pie from any of SliCE’s three locations on Valentine’s Day – complete with his & her toppings and a chance to win a Sterling Silver Hershey Kiss necklace donated by Sermania Jewelry (1719 East Passyunk Avenue). This giveaway ends at 12am on Thursday, so hurry!
Oh and pizza, if loving you is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
