We bring tidings from the pizza and beer beat. Pizza 51 has added a new spot where you can get their pies and slices. The Futbol Club Eatery & Tap (12030 Blue Valley Parkway), a soccer centric bar and grill that opened in April 2013, is serving Pizza 51 pizza. You can eat the pies — made with the same recipes and same type of mixer and oven used at Pizza 51’s other locations — at the bar or call for pick-up. The Futbol Club is currently offering business delivery, but intends to add residential delivery as well.
Pizza 51 owners Jason and Shannon Pryor opened their first shop near the University of Missouri-Kansas City a decade ago. They added a location, Pizza 51 West, in Fairway in 2012, and their pies are on the menu at the Milwaukee Deli downtown, which opened in 2013.
Nothing goes with pizza quite like beer. And Central States Beverage Company has been selling a lot of it — 1 million cases of Boulevard Beer since 2007. To honor the occasion, the local distributor is throwing a party at Kelly’s Westport Inn (500 Westport Road) tonight from 4 to 6 p.m. and the Boulevard beer is on them. The one millionth case will be delivered to Kelly’s along with a free drink ticket (good for one Boulevard beer) to guests.
