The Capitol Hill that I had the opportunity to experience back in college is not the Capitol Hill it is today. When I first learned about the closing of the pizza place in my university’s neighborhood, I was instantly reminded of that Boy Meets World episode where Cory returns to his hometown to find that the restaurant he frequented – Chubbie’s – had undergone a complete renovation. It wasn’t the same and in a weird way it completely turned pirate themed. Piecora’s was a huge part of the Seattle University community. We always worked with them for events and they were so happy to work with us! I could always count on them for a slice of their amazing veggie pizza, salad, and spumoni. I still remember a night in college where I had given up on studying and dragged my then roommate – Anna with me so that I could get my fix.
Piecora’s has decided to sell to a developer – Equity Residential for $10.29 million. It’s interesting because Equity is one of the largest owners of apartments and was my home for two years. Piecora’s has been living at their E Madison location for 30 years and will close for good on Tuesday, April 15th.
I’m really going to miss this place.
