It's almost pizza and beer time on the Civic Plaza: local pizza chain &pizza opens Thursday. They've been in training lately and I heard reports that they were giving away pizza yesterday as a test, but I couldn't confirm.
They're going to have a liquor license for wine and beer, as well as patio seating. However, they tell me that for the time being you can't have the veer or wine outside.
They're taking over the former 826DC space, pictured above -- next to Pollo Campero.
