3/12 – Dinner & A Mixtape comes to Phoenix at La Piazza Downtwon

Dinner & A Mixtape

This Thursday 3/12 ” Dinner and a Mixtape” Comes to Phoenix Arizona.


“Dinner & A Mixtape” is the name of a worldwide series of events hosted by DJ Neil Armstrong, there sharing his love of music & good food. Started in 2013, they have been held in New York, Hong Kong, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Manila Philippines.

The idea is simple – partnering up with great restaurants around the world, Dinner & A mixtape provides the opportunity to enjoy music and food together in a very unique setting. Often the restaurant will creat a special menu just for the event, and the soundtrack is provided by a new installment in DJ Neil Armstrong’s Mixtape Library. Part eating experience, part listening session. The food nourishes the body, and music feeds the soul.

Right Now they are bringing ” Dinner and A Mixtape” across the US, and the first stop is Phoenix.

The Phoenix edition of this meeting of good eats & beats will be held at La Piazza Phoenix.

That’s right, we’re having a pizza party. Dj Neil Armstrong will be joining fellow east coast transplant Justin Piazza . His sister restaurant in Scottsdale La Piazza al Forno was featured on Food Networks “Diners , Drive ins , and Dives “. The Phoenix location follows the same tradition, using only the finest ingredients, including homemade mozzarella, homemade dough and San Marzano tomatoes imported from Italy. La Piazza is also – just FYI – a VPN certified Neapolitan Pizzeria. Can’t get much better of a co-sign then that ;)

Come and dine on a 3 course meal while Listening to Neil’s latest mixtape Warmfuzzy part 2. With the 3 course meal you will receive a copy of mixtape on a USB Cassette , along with a link for a Digital Download of his entire mixtape catalogue, and an exclusive , custom apron (shown below) to commemorate event , only made and available for the night !

mind on Flickr”>Thai Rib Pizza Party

TONITE March 3rd Tuesday
FROM 6- 10 PM
Unveiling the “DJ Neil Armstrong” Thai Rib Signature Pizza at

Rizzo’s LES
17 Clinton St. NYC

17 Clinton St., look LES, NYC. Rizzo’s has been making a unique style of pizza since 1959, we are a family owned business. Every item is created by hand.

Rizzo’s first started in Astoria in 1959, and in recent years opened up in my favorite neighborhood the Lower East Side.

Being from NYC I like my slices simple. Never had one of them hawaiian pizza joints with the Ham & Pineapple.

So when Rizzo’s Hit me up to create a signature pie it was difficult for me to figure something that made sense.

Enter one of my favorite dishes to make – Marinated Thai-style Pork Spare Ribs.

Marrying asian and italian flavors doesn’t happen too often out there, but I figured we could give this a try. Using a tomato bass, with mozzarella and ricotta cheese on the italian side , the thai spare rib meat and chili sambal sauce to represent some asian flavors, and the red onions + Basil as the ingredients that are familiar to both flavor profiles.

TONITE – March 3rd from 6-10 PM, you can come join us at Rizzo’s as we unveil the “DJ Neil Armstrong” Thai rib pizza for to the public, for ONE NIGHT ONLY.

Bring an appetite, the knicks game will be on the TV, we have a full bar with Roxy Cottontail serving up the libations.

Thai Rib Pizza for those who wanna try something different tonight, and all the regular delish combo’s you have come to know and love…. but no hawaiiian pizza ;)



Below are some shots of the pizza being made and taste tested by yours truly to get your Whet your whistle. Hope y’all can make it tonite to taste it yourself!
