Zaw Artisan Pizza coming to Wedgwood in the new year

Zaw's new home in Wedgwood

Where once there was a Domino’s there shall now be a place that makes take-home pizzas, like the Twice Baked Potato, Pig ‘n Pear, and Tailgate Feast.

Zaw Artisan Pizza is coming to Wedgwood (7320 35th Ave NE).

On or around January 10th is the rumored verified opening date. Exterior preparations due in the next few days are a paint job and new windows. (And a new sign, we’re guessin’.)

Along with a variety of take-and-bake pizzas (featuring many locally sourced and organic ingredients), you can choose from a variety of local beers, wines and sodas. Not sure what pairs with your pie? They’ve already done the research for you: Recommended pairings are listed on the menu.

Salads are offered as well. Among them is a Caesar salad wedge that looks like you could pick it up and eat out out of hand.

Wondering if Zaw will offer home delivery? The answer is YES. Once they’re open for business, from 4:30-9pm you can have your pizza delivered to your door…by BIKE.

Zaw’s other four locations are Capitol Hill, Ballard, Queen Anne and South Lake Union.

UPDATE: Their gluten-free crust will be available at this location as well (via twitter).


Anyone been to any of the other Zaw’s? What did you think? Tell us in the comments.

Play trivia, drink beer, and send textbooks to Uganda

On Monday, October 18, the Pied Piper Alehouse (2404 NE 65th St) and The International Pharmaceutical Students’ Federation (University of Washington Chapter) are holding their Second Annual Around the World Trivia Night.

The $5-per-person buy-in goes directly towards donating textbooks to the Makerere School of Pharmacy in Uganda.

The action starts at 8pm, but we’d recommend arriving earlier to enjoy such amenities as International Beer Specials, and Chairs.

Last year’s event had over 70 participants, and raised over $1,100 for the Jimma School of Pharmacy in Ethiopia (trivia proceeds were added to a matching grant from the School of Pharmacy’s Bridges to Health fund).

Participants of Around the World Trivia Night may enter a raffle to win themselves PRIZES donated by local businesses and pharmacy student organizations.

Thank you to Stephen at the Pied Piper Alehouse for the information.
