10 Oct

Stamford is no stranger to pizza joints, especially when you count ’em up on Hope Street. Misto, Vinny’s Backyard, Amore, Springdale Pizza, Hope Pizza, Pappas, Papa John’s (gag), and even (double gag) Domino’s. But now there’s another place for Stamfordites and Springdalers to go: Riko’s Pizza. Their new restaurant is loacted at 886 Hope Street and is right next to Bank of America and is directly across from the Springdale train station. Park on the road (bring quarters) or in their newly paved lot to the left of the restaurant. Their newest spot is replacing their 581 Newfield Avenue location.

Coalhouse Pizza Expands: Offers Games, Beer Classes, + More – Stamford, CT

20 Sep

Our ol’ go-to pizza/beer spot is becoming bigger and better.  Soon (hopefully by the end of September) it’ll be a whole lot easier to get a table, grab a beer, and nom away on a slice of their coal-fired pizza.  This has all been made possible by getting the shop next store, gutting it out, then sprinkling on the Coalhouse mojo.  When you go into the new room, you’ll notice how big the room is, filled with tables, a bar, and more.  Onto the more part:  you’ll notice that you can do more than just eat at Coalhouse Pizza.  Gerard and co. have a shuffleboard table, darts, karaoke, and Golden Tee 2013 so you can drink some cold ones or eat while you destroy your friend (or significant other) at any of those games.  Plus, there will be four large flat screen tvs for your viewing pleasure.  And, you asked for it, now you’ll have it:  60 additional seats.  That’s enough to spread out and also enough for a nice party.  Just sayin’. 

One of the first things that Coalhouse Pizza has planned for the next space is a monthly series of beer classes that you can attend to learn more about beer or even how to homebrew.  PhD. in Beerology?  Yes.  Masters in Brews?  You know it.  Beer Philosopher?  Most definitely.  The first date is October 8 and will be hosted by Brendan Kingston of B. United International.  On topic?  “Hopstacle,” a talk about the five major hop growing areas and their different flavors and aromas.   To really get what he’s talking about, Coalhouse will have five beers for tasting that use those exact hops.
