To celebrate 110 years of its glorious pizza goodness, legendary NYC pizza institution Lombardi's Pizzeria, at 32 Spring St. in Nolita, is selling its whole classic Margherita pies for just 5 cents all day on Thursday, March 19th.
One of NYC's oldest restaurants and likely the oldest pizzeria in America, the shop opened in 1905, and now, you can get their famous pizza at 1905 prices, or pretty much free. Here's the deal: from 11:30am to 11pm, dine-in customers can score a small Margherita pie for 5 cents, or while the dough lasts, according to a report by amNew York.
Lombardi's offered the same promotion for its 100th anniversary and apparently sold over 2,500 pies that year, according to the report. So basically, dig those pennies out of your couch and brace yourself for the lines down on Spring Street.
UPDATE: As of around 2:45pm, the line outside of Lombardi's was just over about 30 people deep:
