Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars
Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars

The first job I had when I moved to NYC was in an office building at Bleeker and Broadway and, at the time, the nearby cheap lunch options were a really greasy hotdog joint right on the corner, fast food chains up the street...and the Two Boots branch on Bleeker which is where I ate almost every day. It was the first time this West Virginia transplant had seen vegan pizza, or pies named for pop culture references ("The Larry Tate," "The Newman"). And while we've now got fancypants pizza like Roberta's and Motorino, Two Boots and their Cajun-influenced pie is still kickin'...and still really good.

Anyhoo...the East Village chain is celebrating it's 25th Anniversary this year and are throwing a free concert on August 23 at East River Park with Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars and supporting sets from Mamarazzi, Odetta Hartman, Himalayas and The Whiskeyhickon Boys. The party goes from 5 - 9PM and will also feature free pizza.

The Two Boots show is part of Summerstage's late-August line-up at East River Park that features comedy, dance, performance art and music. Programming includes The Upright Citizens Brigade "All-Stars of Improv" on August 19, the Lyricist Lounge 20 Year Anniversary with Pete Rock vs. DJ Premier on August 22 and more.

Full East River Park Summerstage schedule is below...
