Please Cheese Me: Deals and more for National Cheese Pizza Day

Mike Thomas

Published

on

They say that the best way to judge a restaurant’s pizza is to try a cheese-only pie first. If it pleases the palate without the aid of additional toppings, you know you’re onto something special.

With September 5 on the books as National Cheese Pizza Day, there’s no better time to put this theory to the test. Check out this roundup of deals, plus some tips to help you observe this dangerously cheesy day the right way.

Drake gets it.

More cheese for less dough

Fancy gourmet pie or a slice from your favorite mom and pop joint will always reign supreme, but let’s face it—the national brands remain a go-to when you need your pizza fast and cheap.

Grab two cheese pizzas from Dominos for less than $15 with their mix-and-match deal, or hit up Pizza Hut’s $7.99 carryout deal to score a large three-topping (triple cheese, of course).

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Still not cheap enough for you? There’s always the “5-dolla-holla” at Little Caesars. Want some free cheese pizza to compliment your cheese pizza? Get a free medium w/cheese from Marco’s when you order a large or extra-large pizza online using the code “FREECHZ” (pick-up only, offer good through September 5).

Keep Columbus Cheesy

If price is no object, you might as well treat yourself to the best. But who has the best pizza in Columbus, you ask? According to the results of this year’s annual “Columbest” reader’s poll, Mikey’s Late Night Slice is the tops when it comes to traditional pie, while Harvest Pizzeria is numero uno in the gourmet category.

You can also keep it local by dining on a cheese-only creation from one of the many fine establishments in town specializing in Columbus-style pizza (which is so totally a thing—refer to this list to see what we mean).

What’s your go-to for cheese pizza in the 614? Let us know in the comments.

Making cocktails at home is hard—that’s a statement we won’t get much debate from with the drinkers at home. Maybe it’s the magic the bartenders in this city wield that make our drinks so damn delicious, or maybe it’s just our lack thereof. But sometimes all you need is a few tricks of the trade to become a master of your own home bar, and that’s where High Bank Distillery comes in.

Fresh from the still comes High Bank’s newest bottle release: Professor Rum. Stock & Barrel stopped by the facility, kitchen, and bar to see how we could concoct our very own cocktails at home with the rum. Here are three options for you to try. Or of course, just simply stroll down to HBD and have one of their cocktail wizards whip you up a delicious elixir.

1.5 oz. Vanilla Infused Professor Rum .75 oz. Demerara Simple Syrup
1 oz. Half and Half
2 oz. Fresh Orange Juice

On the 18th of September, some great folks—the powers at be only know who—determined this would be the day humankind celebrates the juicy, succulent, greasy creation we've come to know and love as the cheeseburger.

And on October 7 through 12, your good friends here at (614) decided those would be the days we'd celebrate burgers and beer here in Columbus!

Burger + Beer Week, presented by (614) Magazine and Ohio Beef Council, is your chance to enjoy $6 burgers and local beer specials at 75+ of Columbus’ top restaurants:

Some restaurants will discount their menu mainstay burger for the event while others will whip up entirely new creations you can only get during Burger + Beer Week.

And thanks to our friends at Columbus Brewing Company, Seventh Son Brewing, Platform Beer Co - Columbus, and Land-Grant Brewing Company, you'll be able to greasily grab for a specially-priced pint to wash down your meal.

But, perhaps the best part of Burger + Beer Week is the opportunity to give back. Now through October 12, you can enter to receive dinner for four people at six Burger & Beer Week restaurants plus a craft beer gift package, with each unique entry equally a $0.25 donation to the Columbus Diaper Coalition!

Be sure to RSVP to the event and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for loads of burger giveaways, like this one we have going on right now with Ted's Montana Grill!
