Smarty Scoop on Weekend Events And FREE PIZZA!!!

By Katie M

Happy Wednesday, Smarty readers! We are so excited to dedicate today’s post to Smarty Sponsor Brixx Wood Fired Pizza, located at 1295 Creekshire Way in the Shoppes on Little Creek in Winston-Salem (off Hanes Mall Boulevard). We’ve blogged in the past about how much we love this fun, friendly neighborhood restaurant for its best brick-oven pizzas around! And if you didn't already know, Brixx also serves signature sandwiches, pastas, salads, desserts and 14 different wines by glass as well as 24 great beers on tap.

Beginning today through March 31, Brixx is offering a special Triad Smarty Pants Family Discount to all our readers at its Winston-Salem location. Print off this blog to use as your coupon, and when you buy one pizza you’ll get a second one for FREE! When this special runs out, stay tuned because Brixx will have another exclusive offer for TSP readers this coming April!

Brixx is open Monday – Saturday from 11 am to 1 am, and on Sunday from 11 am to 11 pm. Phone: 336-837-0664. It’s the perfect place to feed the entire family, and when you go, be sure to tell them Triad Smarty Pants sent you!

My family LOVES Brixx! The waitstaff has always been very friendly to the children - even after the inevitable dropped plate or spilled milk! And kids love playing with the pizza dough they provide and making a shape to have cooked in the brick oven.
