Stranger Things: New York pizzeria serves Barb slices
For those already craving another serving of Stranger Things, Vinnie’s Pizzeria has your fix: The Brooklyn eatery is now selling slices inspired by the supernatural series’ cast.
Their latest specials are an homage to Barb (Shannon Purser), a.k.a. Nancy’s (Natalia Dyer) best friend who cares too much for her own good. Menu items include the Barbeque, Barbohydrates, and Barbroiled. The pop-culture obsessed pizza joint has also featured tributes to telekentic protagonist Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and trusty sidekick Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) with names like The Upfried Down, Demogorgonzola, Elevenchilada, and Telekinesauce.
In the past, Vinnie’s has riffed on a number of TV shows and movies. They had a day dedicated to actors who’ve played the Joker (Heath Vegger, Jared Lettuce), a pair of pies for Harry Potter (Dairy Potter, The Wurst Child), and several spins on Pokémon (Pikachew, Artichokemon, Ricotta Catch ’em All). They’ve already set the internet ablaze with their famous pizza-topped-pizza, as well as a pizza-made pizza box.
