The morning of July 5 was not a good one for the owners of Pizza (216) (401 Euclid Ave., 216-741-7992). Upon walking into their spot on Euclid, the sky appeared to be falling. The ceiling, which had been enduring a slow leak, had collapsed. Worst of all, on its way down to the floor, it decided to open the beer taps. Beer flowed and flowed.

After months of tedious repair, including the removal and replacement of the entire ceiling, Pizza (216) will soon be back in the business of slinging pies.

"We have confirmed a date of February 12th for the official open date," says owner Brad Wiescinski. "Can't wait to see the space full of people again!"

Stop in to see and support owners Johnny Lis and Wiescinski as they've had a pretty brutal summer, fall and winter.
