Pizza-Craving Zombies To Launch Delicious Attacks On Cambridge & Portland This Weekend

zombie“Maaaaashed Potaaaaaatoes…” “Craaaanberries…”

These are the cries of the undead as they wake from a long sleep with a insatiable craving for OTTO in Harvard Square and on Congress Street in Portland this weekend.

Join us, one and all — zombies of all ages — as we walk, lunge, and crawl from crypt to crust. Each participating zombie will receive a free slice upon reaching the feeding ground. There will be giveaways: OTTO t-shirts, OTTO tattoos, and more.

Cambridge – Harvard Square, Saturday 10/26 @ 3pm
Start: Old Burying Ground
The crawl will snake around Harvard Square, ending up at OTTO.

Portland – OTTO (Munjoy Hill), Sunday 10/27 @4:30pm
Start: OTTO @ 225 Congress Street (directly across from Eastern Cemetery)
The crawl will follow Congress Street, ending up at OTTO’s Arts District location @ 574 Congress Street.

Come in costume. We will have some spare makeup on hand if needed.

Try The Nolan Special: A Delicious Pizza Created By An Awesome 6-Year-Old

ottos - NolanFrom Friday, Oct. 18 at 5pm through Sunday, October 20, guests at any OTTO location will have the opportunity to try The Nolan Special, available by the slice or whole pie.

Created by 6-year old Nolan, from Scarborough, ME, this weekend special features roasted cherry tomatoes, with bacon and spicy pepperoni.  10% of every purchase will be donated to Make-a-Wish Maine.

Last week, OTTO was contacted by Make-a-Wish Maine about providing pizza for Nolan’s Wish party prior to his family’s trip to Orlando — he’s a big fan. We at OTTO were so taken with this young man, we asked Nolan if he would be interested in creating his very own pizza for our ongoing Weekend Special series.

nolanspecialNolan stated that he would want a pizza like a “BLT with a spice to it.” The finished product was a collaboration between Nolan and OTTO’s executive chef.  We’ve tasted it and it is delicious.

Nolan knocked it out of the park with his pizza creation, and we can’t wait to share it with you.  It will be available all weekend long (until it’s all gobbled up)!

We hope Nolan and his family have a wonderful time in Orlando. Their friends at OTTO can’t wait to hear all about it!

Kids: Want To See Your Design on Thousands of OTTO Boxes? It’s Easy as 1-2-3!

OTTO is currently accepting entries for its ‘Draw Outside of the Box’ contest, in which students in K-8 can win the opportunity to have their design grace the cover of thousands of OTTO pizza boxes throughout New England — and win their school $1000 towards art education in the process!

There are loads of prizes, and thirty finalists will have their work presented to a distinguished panel of design experts, including Scott Nash of ‘Flat Stanley‘ fame.

OTTO_Event-OutsideTheBox-V2aThe contest is open to all students in New England. It’s pretty simple:

1. Draw a design on a square surface (preferably 16×16, the size of a large pizza box).
2. Take a clear digital picture of the design.
3. Email it to OTTO at contactus@ottoportland.com!

It’s really that simple.

OTTO is currently accepting entries, and will continue to accept them through Dec. 18 at 9am. However, the sooner your design is entered, the more time it has to collect ‘votes’ on Facebook!

Good luck!
