As I'm sure you can imagine, the job of a lifestyle writer involves a lot of scouring press releases for relevant information, attending media dinners to stay current on recent menu offerings and Twitter research to know what's hot and trending. But my favorite discoveries are those that I make when I am out simply living my life that I then get to share with you! And last night I discovered the mecca of all ladies night deals at Piola Pizza on 14th street when I was grabbing a drink with a friend: 10 cent glasses of wine!
The "Wine for a Dime" ladies night promotion is currently offered in D.C. on Thursday nights from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. All ladies get unlimited house wine for 10 cents a glass when they order an entree. Piola's menu offers more than 30 pizzas, seven salads and appetizers ranging from bruschetta to caprese and avocado dip. You can also order many typical Italian staples, such as gnocchi, pappardelle bolognese, lasagna, chicken parmesan etc. Reservations are not accepted so seats are given on a walk-in, first come, first served basis.
Piola's regular happy hour runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday with $4 beers, $5 house wines and $6 cocktails; on Saturday and Sunday they offer an unlimited pizza brunch and mimosa/bellini/sangria specials from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Piola is located at 2208 14th St. NW
