BROOKLYN — As Primary Day got underway in New Hampshire Tuesday, the rest of the nation was busy celebrating National Pizza Day and National Bagel Day.
In a city like New York, every day is National Pizza Day but there is only one place in the Big Apple where pizza meets politics on the intersection of Nassau and Kingsland Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
As the political season heats up, so does the menu at Vinnie’s Pizzeria.
All month long, the pizzeria is holding a president’s pizza party in which every commander in chief ever elected is reproduced in a slice.
“The first one was George Squashington and it had grilled squash and stuff like that,” Vinnie’s co-owner Sean Berthiaume told PIX11 News.
“I’m almost a little tired of all the craziness of Trump and Hillary and it’s just over and over again, so I kind of reverted back to history,” he said.
“It’s just more interesting to me than all this nonsense going on.”
From “Hummus Jefferson" to Tuesday’s special slice a tribute to our ninth president "Chilliam Henry Harrison," each slice is unique -- and tasty.
When it comes to Election 2016, according to Berthiaume, ideas are already brewing.
“Anytime someone leaves a slice in for a little too long, we can just call it the Bernie Sanders slice,” Berthiaume said, referring to Sanders’ campaign slogan Feel The Bern.
If it’s National Bagel Day you’re celebrating, The Bagel Store in Williamsburg is your ticket.
Their insanely popular rainbow bagel has put the shop on the map after photos of the colorful, doughy rings went viral.
Shop owner and Brooklyn native Scot Rossillo cannot keep up with orders.
“I’m about 2,000-3,000 emails deep right now and I wish I could get back to everyone but I can’t,” he told PIX11 News. “I’m just gonna keep doing what I love to do and keep making the world’s most beautiful bagel.”
