Tonight you get free slices if you mention La Lengua! (Kidding. Free slices for everyone, I think. But do mention your support of La Lengua.)
PizzaHacker is at 3299 Mission, the site of the old Inkas restaurant.
This used to be the Wide Hive record store, which used to be the American Trust bank…

Individual years here, if you are not GIF-inclined.
In addition to pizza being cooked at a temperature higher than the surface of Venus, PizzaHacker is bringing back the famed Intermezzo salad:
“I kept the wooden bowls, but upgraded the pedigree of the ingredients (all part of my evil plot to gentrify Bernal Heights)”
(Excellent subterfuge, PizzaHacker, most excellent (rubs hands together).)
Hey, did you know that PizzaHacker has an official house band? During his interview on Burrito Justice Radio (archives coming soon), PizzaHacker professed his love for 2 Lane Blacktop. I’d never heard of them before, but wow. Coming Home is particularly good.
To be fair, a) they are not really the official band, and b) the band broke up in the late 1990s, but goddamn I like them a lot. Hey 2 Lane Blacktop! You need to get back together and do a live show at PizzaHacker!
Anyway, welcome to the neighborhood(s) PizzaHacker! Hot may your oven burn, and cold may your beer flow.
