Mozzeria hosted many events last week. Although we are usually closed on Mondays, we opened for a private event last Monday. Creativity Explored host a holiday party for their staff. We had a great time serving our customers pizza and wine, and they loved our food and US!
On Wednesday evening, the power suddenly went out. It’s the second time it happened - I know you’re probably thinking “maybe we didn't pay the electricity bill.” But we did pay the bill! When we went outside, we found out that we were not the only ones without power.
PG&E reported that 3,000 residents and businesses in our area were without power and that power may be restored within the hour. Oh, that is not good. Russ ran out and purchased candles for our customers. We were happy to have our wood burning oven because we could STILL serve pizzas to customers. We couldn't serve other food that required cooking. Customers came in and still wanted to eat pizzas in the dark. Great! When the power came back one hour later, we all cheered!
Mozzeria, A Place To Visit?
We have received requests from schools in the Greater Bay Area to give tours at Mozzeria. It was a new experience giving a tour to the first group – 15 deaf students from John O'Connell High School, also in the Mission district. It was definitely fun sharing our story with the students, and we would love to give tours to groups from other schools. I would like to wait until Spring, however, as I need to continue focusing on restaurant operations for the next several months.
We had our first wedding reception at Mozzeria last weekend! The wedding party was so sweet, and the bride was so beautiful in her wedding dress. We feel so honored that they chose Mozzeria to celebrate the special occasion.
The week ended with another private function. Gallaudet University, located in Washington D.C. where Russ and I first met each other, hosted an event at Mozzeria for their alumnus. I know our space was rather small and there are thousands of Gally alumnus in the Bay Area. GUAA mentioned plans to host another one in the near future. It was so wonderful seeing old and new faces last Saturday!
