The First Annual Pizza Festival   Leave a comment



April 1, 2017
12p.m. to 1p.m. VIP Kickoff
1p.m. to 6p.m. General Admission

The Fort Lauderdale Pizza Festival is thrilled to announce the inaugural celebration of all things cheesy, set for April 1, 2017. Thousands of South Florida pizza lovers will unite to savor some of the area’s most delectable pizzas, refresh their palettes with crisp craft beers and wines, enjoy live music, lawn games, and cooking demos, bring the children to enjoy the kid zone, and sample all things cheesy from numerous vendors showcasing their best at this can’t-miss event. A portion of the proceeds from the Fort Lauderdale Pizza Festival will be donated to Feeding South Florida, 2017’s official nonprofit beneficiary. For every $1 per ticket sale that is donated, 6 meals will be provided to the men, women and children in need of food assistance throughout South Florida.


My mother always told me if you can’t say something nice don’t say anything (I didn’t always follow her advice LOL) so I will not say anything about the First Annual Pizza Festival. Granted it is the first but I can’t see any of the companies serving the 3/4″ slices of cold pizza getting any business from this.


One never knows what Mother Nature has up her sleeve!

The other day coming home I decided to take the elevator and saw a chick on the floor near the plants. Looking up I saw the head of a pigeon on a small shelf between the door and right above it. I was going to put the chick up there but I know better than to fool around with a baby bird, especially when the parents are around!

Yesterday I came home and saw that maintenance had put up spikes to close the area off but either they didn’t care or didn’t know that one of the adult pigeons was still there. I, also, saw some blood on the side wall which probably meant dad(?) got out to look for food as that is their job. Today the ’nest’ was empty though there were twigs and papers all over that area. In any case I took a section of the spikes off so if they are still nesting there they won’t get hurt coming and going.

I know pigeons are a problem here but that is no way to solve it! The following day the mother was sitting on 3 eggs. Also a little further west another pair of birds had set up a nest. There is also a nest, bluebirds I think, in the tree in the back of my building.

Yes, it is THAT time of the year!
