|You can't beat free pizza on opening day at Spiritus in PTown.|
For more than 40 years Spiritus Pizza has been luring folks down Commercial Street for a slice. The place got its start in 1971, on the other side of the street, before finally settling in for the duration
at 190 Commercial.
Spiritus will be open at least by noon tomorrow, likely till about 5 or 6 o'clock. It's that time of year when it's a little hard to know exactly what everyone's hours will be, since it all depends on how many customers show up every day. For now, you can call Spiritus at 508 487-2808 to find out what time they expect to be opening and closing as the town gets busier day by day.
Soon, though, the rhythm of the season will have Spiritus opening early every day for their excellent, strong cup of coffee to go along with their continental breakfast, and they'll stay open late for the infamous crowds that gather after the bars close down for the night. And don't forget about their juices, three brands of gourmet ice cream and frozen yogurt in a long list of flavors, and my favorite frosty treat, the absolutely killer espresso shake.
Even though the calendar says it's springtime, today's snow and extreme winds deny it. But stepping into Spiritus will go a long way toward leaving the winter behind. Yay!
