Pizza Rustica

Today's new SocialBuy deal is $5 for $10 to Pizza Rustica. I think I was probably the first person to click BUY NOW.

I used to work for a major newspaper in downtown LA, and a Pizza Rustica (it's a franchise) was just down the street. For some reason, I didn't eat there the whole time I worked in that area. But a couple of months later, I was visiting an old coworker downtown, and we decided to get lunch there.

HOLY COW. In general, I'm a huge pizza lover. Growing up, it was usually the thing I gave up for Lent... unsuccessfully. I ascribe to the theory that any pizza is good pizza.

Pizza Rustica is GREAT pizza. I ordered the Chicken Alla Florentina. I got the small, and it was enormous. It was the kind of pizza that's so huge that you have to fold it in half and eat it like a sandwich. Between that and the pitcher of beer we ordered, I was barely able to waddle out the door when I was done (no, there were no leftovers to speak of).

What I'm trying to say is, buy this SocialBuy deal. If not for yourself, then for me. This is a Los Angeles restaurant deal you don't want to miss.

East Restaurant in Hollywood - Hang with the SocialBuy Crew!

Tomorrow night, Angelenos have a very special opportunity: to meet the team behind SocialBuy at our first-ever SociaLite "Classy Hour" event. We're holding it at East Restaurant and Lounge in Hollywood. It's one of the newer Hollywood hotspots, though owner David Judaken and chef Keven Allen Lee aren't exactly hospitality greenhorns.

Right now on SocialBuy, we're selling $15 drink vouchers to East for $7. If you want to try out East but can't make it tomorrow night, no worries - this deal voucher will be valid for the next year.

It starts at 5 pm and goes until 8, which is the extent of East's regular happy hour. The voucher applies to happy hour drinks - hey, we like to save money too!

Besides promoting East, this is a great opportunity for us to meet our fans and fellow web denizens face-to-face. It'll also be a solid chance to wind down and recover from mid-week slump.

Like I said, this is our first-ever SociaLite event - as in, we plan on having plenty more in the future. We'd love to see you there tomorrow night, but if you can't, no worries. You'll have plenty more chances to hang out with us!

Get your drink voucher here. RSVP to our Facebook event and get more details here.
