We’re Supporting Headstuff

Teaming up with Headstuff

HeadStuff-Lectures

 

We are delighted to support Headstuff Lectures held in The Workman’s Club on Wellington Quay in Dublin, just around the corner from us, on the first Wednesday of every month. Wonderful speakers talking passionately about different topics. As they say themselves, “they could be about frog memes or democratic revolutions. They could also be about Erwin Schrodinger or Paris Hilton. Or anything in between…HeadStuff Lectures are not mass, not school and definitely not Ted Talks.”

 

We especially love that their mission is to support and facilitate contributors of high quality content and that they make this so accessible to their audience. And they say that every penny given goes to their contributors.

Oh! And that Tara Flynn writes a weekly column for them. What’s not to love.

 

Next Headstuff Lecture is on Monday 7th December

High Praise Indeed for our Pizza!

So, recently we were wandering around our Twitter page and came across this Tweet from Creative Yoke Blog and thought……..hmm! Sicilian….but bet you haven’t tried New York style pizza.

Pizza Creative Yoke

We decided to put ours to the test and invite Creative Yoke to try it for herself and tell us honestly what she thought.

Little did we know that we weren’t just going to be compared to Sicilian pizza in Galway, but to New York pizza in New York! Yes. The real deal. As she said herself:

 

I’m quite familiar with New York style pizza, I have been to New York many times, more times than I can count, my first port of call is “Mutz’s” or ‘Muzzarella’s’ (Avenue A, just at 14th Street).

So you can imagine how delighted we were when we saw these:

SLAM DUNK! We scored! 10 out of 10 for our Pizza

High praise indeed from one who knows her New York pizza!

Spotted by Locals Great Review

Thanks Lucie Ryan Donnelly for a great write up.

DiFontaine’s, quite simply, is the best pizza in Dublin.

Nestled on the outskirts of Temple Bar, right beside the quays, it’s a prime location to intercept hungry drunkards from all sides at 02:00, which is probably its peak time. A tiny spot with a few counter seats, it’s a place to grab a slice rather than a sit-down meal, but I guarantee you won’t want to sit anyway.

Pay it Forward image

Pay It Forward is on the Rise

Here at DiFontaine’s Pizzeria we’ve been encouraging our customers to Pay It Forward for a number of years and have had tremendous support from them.  When you buy a slice of pizza for yourself, you pay for another one and we suspend it. Then we give them to people who need them. We’ve been happy to tip away at this on our own all this time, but always hoped that other businesses would  consider doing it also, but yesterday all of that changed! When a random post popped up on my Facebook timeline about a young guy in Dublin who had pledged to fix leaks for elderly people who can’t afford to pay – and committed to do one every month from January onwards – we just HAD to get in touch with him.

That young man’s name is James Ormond who runs his own company Roofing and Building.ie which is based in Dublin. Initially he thought about donating to a charity but then thought he’d rather be more directly involved with helping people. He pays for all of the materials and labour himself and is genuinely happy to do so when he sees the improvement it can make to a person’s life.

The Best! That’s what the DailyEdge.ie said

The best.

It’s the closest Dublin has to a classic late night NYC pizza joint. Their slices are huge, you get them quick and it’s open seriously late into the night – and not forgetting that they are pure pizza filth, and exactly what you need at the end of a night.
