Few things taste as good after a long day than a mouth-watering slice of pizza and a well-deserved glass of wine. But instead of ordering a pie or succumbing to the sinful temptation of *gasp* Domino’s, why not make it yourself?!
Since we had such great times this past October, November, and December for our inaugural seven events, we're coming back for more, more, more in 2019! So consider this your formal invite (yup, yet again!) to KestΓ© Pizza & Vino’s infamous pizza-making classes, Make Pizza Drink Wine, going down on the following Friday nights: January 18th (this date was just added since our two other January events sold out in record time), February 1st, 8th, 15th & 22nd (every date is almost already sold out), and March 15th, 22nd & 29th (just announced)! 
Not only will you gain hands-on experience from the cream of the pizza-making crop, but did we mention you’ll also enjoy sipping on complimentary glasses of house red and white wines for the entire night-- plus you'll have delicious appetizers like fried burrata and fresh mozzarella served family-style! (And let's not forget that lil' goodie bag that every person gets to go home with, courtesy of our good friends at KestΓ©!)
So if you have yet to experience one of the most memorable (not to mention interactive!) nights happening right now in New York City with everyone’s two favorite food groups, this is your chance. You can snag your tickets, which start at just $65/person, by clicking here
