Throwing pizza with Chef Ivo

By | June 30th, 2011 | 8 Comments

As you may know, tonight is our Sketchy Party at Lester’s cafe in Wynwood to celebrate the launch of Sketchy Miami and sketchymiami.com. So far, we’ve introduced you to several of the artists who will be banging out flash portraits at the party (Annie Blazejack, Brian Butler, Carrie Sieh) and singer-songwriter Sam Friend, who will be on hand to test the structural integrity of Lester’s ceramicware with a rollicking acoustic performance.

Now we introduce you to Chef Ivo Mazzon, the culinary saint behind the divine pizza at Joey’s, which will be served free and hot at Lester’s tonight. Chef Mazzon hails from outside of Venice and has been tossing pizza since he was a teenager. Earlier this week, I stopped into Joey’s kitchen to get a lesson from the master on how to make his signature pie, the Dolce e Piccante. Roll video.

If that wasn’t enough to entice you out to Lester’s tonight, then you are strange. Even so, you’re invited to our Sketchy Party. Come enjoy the music, the food, the beer (25% off for the first hour), and get your beautiful face sketchy’d by some of Miami’s most talented artists. You can get full details about the party on Facebook. A presto!
