National Pizza Month: Top 3 places to get Pizza in the Arena District

Although National Pizza Month may be nearing its end, we think this is a holiday that can be celebrated year-round. That’s why we’ve taken the time to share the top three locations for a slice of Za in the Arena District:

 

Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar

First on the list is Boston’s The Gourmet Pizza Restaurant and Sports Bar – “pizza” is literally in the title of this restaurant’s name, so you know their pizza is going to be good.  Boston’s pizza dough is pressed by hand daily and the pizzas range in size from an individual pizza of 8” to a large pizza of 15” (this can be an individual pizza too, if you believe in yourself). Boston’s offers 14 different types of pizza, 4 types of flatbread pizzas, 4 types of thin crust pizzas and 2 types of calzones. If none of their combinations tickle your taste buds you can always make your own pizza to get it just right. Plus, this restaurant is in close proximity of Nationwide Arena so it is the perfect spot to get a pre-game slice!

Buca di Beppo

For pizza with true authentic Italian flare we recommend a visit to Buca di Beppo. All the pizzas and dishes at Buca are inspired by the cuisine enjoyed for generations in villages throughout Italy. Serving up 8 different types of pizzas including ‘Pizza Con Formaggio’ and ‘Supremo Italiana’ you can’t go wrong with any choice when you visit this festive and fun restaurant.

Gordon Biersch

If you want a little beer to go with your pizza we recommend a visit to Gordon Biersch—their hand tossed pizzas and flatbreads will not disappoint. Indulge on classics like traditional pepperoni pizza or be adventurous with the California Cobb Flatbread that offers a little more zest with a drizzle of Märzen beer balsamic vinaigrette. Pair your Za with a refreshing handcrafted brew and you’ll be set.

Satisfied your pizza Craving in the Arena District but still have room for a slice or two more? We recommend Mikey’s Late Night Slice and

There’s no easier way to meet people than through shared experiences. In Columbus, some of the downtown apartment complexes offer planned social activities with the intention of bringing neighbors together. From pool parties to holiday parties, and planned social events at neighboring bars and restaurants, check your apartment’s social pages, resident portal or calendars to see what’s going on in your community.

Join A Group 

A great way to meet people in Columbus is to join a group of people with similar interests as you. Whether it’s a fitness class, sports league, trivia team or volunteer opportunity, there’s a likeminded local group to join. Scour the community bulletin in your apartment, or browse websites like Meetup, Nextdoor and even Craigslist. If you can’t find anything, don’t be afraid to embrace your interests and start the group yourself!

Show Some Spirit

If there’s a holiday coming up, show off your fun side and get in the spirit of the season! Decorating your apartment balcony can be a nice icebreaker to get some attention from people in your building. Or, even host a holiday gathering at your apartment. Make a Facebook event to get the word out there and invite those people you met even just through social media. Everyone loves a themed party, especially if it’s as convenient as down the hall. So why not get everyone together and celebrate an upcoming holiday?

Be Aware

In order to find opportunities to meet people, it’s important to stay in the know of what’s going on in downtown Columbus.
