Mmm. Town Pizza. Not only the sound of satisfaction, but an acronym for a successful night out in Fire Island. Mermaid Island, Matthews, and Maguires capped off with a slice of Cold Pizza. Following this bar hopping treasure map is as easy as playing Candyland. It requires little to no reading and minimal counting skills, making it suitable for anyone from young children to the highly intoxicated 25ish year old.
No better way to start off your night than with Fire Island’s signature drink: Rocketfuel. A combination of vodka, tequila, white rum, coconut mixers or amaretto blended swiftly with crushed ice and served at basically any bar. If you’re looking for a big gulp, go for Mermaid Island’s. If portion control is your goal, try the Rocketfuel at Matthews. Ironically, the one place in the North East that doesn’t allow cars has managed to hang its hat on its very own source of renewable energy.
Head to Maguires late night. Bring you air guitar and dancing shoes, leave with an appetite. Enough of the foreplay, we’re getting warmer… Exit Maguires, Enter Town Pizza.
Town Pizza is famous for its Cold Pizza. Not to be confused with the banter broadcasted on ESPN between Skip Bayles and Woody Paige; Cold Pizza is a regular slice of hot cheese pizza topped with cold Mozzarella cheese. Cold cheese as a topping for hot cheese? The best ideas are the simple ones.
Mentally prepare to wait in line for a $4 slice while members of the Sushi 12 Conference discuss camp, Greek life, and edamame! The crust combines just the right amount of crisp, thickness, and chew. The sauce and cheese provide a great flavor, while the extra cold Mozzarella topping is what puts Town Pizza on the map.
Like Candyland, you don’t need to make choices. Just follow directions.
Mmm. Town Pizza.
