Yesterday, we went downtown to try out the newest restaurant in town, Pete’s Pizza. Their first restaurant was opened a few years ago in downtown Grass Valley and after great success, they have opened a second restaurant in Nevada City. We walked downtown and were at Pete’s in just a couple of minutes. We were going to get a small pizza, which is 12″ and just over $10. The owner talked us into getting just a slice a piece, which was the perfect size. The large slice was about $4 and we could add toppings, but opted for a simple slice of Margherita. Pete’s serves a thin, New York-style pizza with a homemade sauce and fresh toppings (they also have a Chicago deep-dish style per request). The Margherita had Roma tomatoes that were ripe and juicy with fresh basil. A slice took a little over 5 minutes and a whole pizza takes about 20 minutes. A pizza-by-the-slice place is perfect for tourists and locals alike, especially during street fairs and events. They have a whole list of toppings or you can choose from their specials, such as the Yuba or Mediterranean. If you aren’t in the mood for pizza, they have calzones (which are packed full and delicious!), salads, subs, and a list of appetizers including fish and chips, chicken tenders, garlic fries, and much more. Pete’s has yet to set hours, but for now they open at 11:30 a.m. and close late in the evening sometime. Pete’s Pizza is at 239 Commercial St. in Nevada City, CA and can be contacted by phone at 530.264.7004
Off Broadstreet Theater is now showing Copa Banana. We saw the comedy musical a few nights ago with a group of friends. If you want a good laugh, this is the place to go. The theater always puts on great shows filled with fun music. Copa Banana is about four people in a small town in Mexico who are trying to attract more tourists. In an attempt to gain Oprah’s attention, they take out-of-focus videos of them performing as Elton John, Lady Gaga, Dolly Parton, Cher, Donnie and Marie Osmond, and many other performers. The desserts at Off Broadstreet are freshly made by local restaurants. Our group tried a few different ones and each were fabulous. We had a great time and highly recommend!
