Few things taste as good after a long day than a mouth-watering slice of pizza and a well-deserved glass of wine. But instead of ordering a pie or succumbing to the sinful temptation of *gasp* Domino’s, why not make a delicious pie yourself?
But what's that?! Don’t know the first thing about making pizza? Not many people do!
But since we've had such great times these past eighteen months for our first one-hundred (yes, 100!) pizza-making events in Manhattan, we're coming back for more, more, more--and starting in November 2019, we will be hosting these experiences in Queens at Long Island City's Beebe's! So consider this your formal invite (yup, yet again) to Hungry Pop's now world-infamous pizza-making experiences, 'Make Pizza, Drink (Bottomless) Wine', going down at 2PM on the following Sunday afternoons: November 24th, December 8th & 15th!
Get schooled by New York City pizza chef Pascual Gonzalez (an alum of Speedy Romeo) at Beebe's in Long Island City, Queens, where you’ll spend two hours with us learning how to make (and taste, obviously!) authentic neo-Neapolitan pizza.
*Please note: If your group is 10 people or more (birthday parties & corporate/team-building events are welcome!), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss setting up a private event.*
Easily accessible from the N W and 7 subway lines, this brand spankin’ new, hip Italian-American hotel restaurant opened in the lobby of Long Island City’s trendy Boro Hotel in April 2018, and it has made quite the name for itself ever since then.
Not only will you gain hands-on experience from the cream of this city's pizza-making crop, but did we mention you’ll also enjoy sipping on complimentary glasses of house red & white wines for two hours, all the while learning about the incredible history of Neapolitan pizza-- plus you'll have delicious shared Italian appetizers served up family-style! And to top it all off, there's nothing like a few good surprises along the way (Nutella infused-banana bread pudding for dessert, anyone?)!
Named in Vogue’s best of restaurant list (not once, but twice) and CNN for New York City’s best new pizza restaurants, alongside write-ups in Eater NY and Edible Queens, and there’s one thing that’s for certain: throw every preconceived notion of boring, bland hotel food right out the window when you step foot into this contemporary, floor-to-ceiling windowed establishment.
Best part of the entire ‘Make Pizza, Drink Wine’ experience you’ll have here? After you toss your very own customized neo-Neapolitan pie (unlimited toppings like sausage, mushrooms, or pepperoni, anyone?!) into their custom-built cherry red, gas-fired Forni oven (with help, of course, from acclaimed in-house pizzaiolo Pascual Gonzalez), you’ll be able to enjoy their private courtyard and super intimate views of Manhattan’s skyline.
If you’re looking for the most interactive food experience unlike any other happening in New York City right now, this is it!
So be prepared to roll up your sleeves, enjoy a glass of wine (or two, three, four... you get the open bar idea by now, right?) and make your saucy pizza-cooking debut. Plus, get ready for your close-up, because Hungry Pop will be on-site to capture videos and photos of the tasty night.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your friends, family, or significant other(s) and join Hungry Pop at Beebe's inside Long Island City's Boro Hotel for a taste of neo-Naples and to test out your pizza-making chops while enjoying an open wine bar. (P.S., we promise you’ll want to throw out your take-out menus afterwards!)
Sounds absolutely amazing, huh?! You can snag your tickets right here!
