Finally, Pizza Brain is ready to deliver. Brian Dwyer’s much anticipated Fishtown pizzeria/museum — boasting the world’s largest collection of pizza memorabilia as well as some pretty solid slices — will open Friday with a grand gala. Sharing the same space as the psychedelic Little Baby’s Scoop Shop, Pizza Brain marks its territory with a 34-foot-long mural of famous Philadelphians by local illustrator/hot-dog historian Hawk Krall. Attendees can look forward to a ribbon-cutting ceremony with lofty speeches, belly dancing, live music, face painting, haircuts, free beer, pizza-flavored ice cream and pizza-flavored pizza.
Fri., Sept. 7, 4:30 p.m., free, 2313 Frankford Ave., pizzabrain.org.
