Park Pizza & Brewing Co. Is A Post-Quarantine Must-Visit

While it is true that we may not get back to "normal" for a while, the new normal we find ourselves in isn't all bad, especially when you find new restaurants to visit.

Park Pizza & Brewing Co. Is A Post-Quarantine Must-Visit

reasons, I was told it was delicious and After a long few months of social distancing and self-quarantining for the safety of the community, many of us are itching to get back to normal. While it is true that we may not get back to "normal" for a while, the new normal we find ourselves in isn't all bad, especially when you find new restaurants to visit.

It's been a long time since I visited a public place, but for a friend's birthday a few of us ventured out to visit Park Pizza & Brewing Co. in Lake Nona. I wasn't sure what to expect, both in terms of food and in terms of safety measures during COVID-19, but I was pleasantly surprised on both fronts.

The staff was incredibly friendly and well-prepared. The entire staff was wearing custom Park Pizza face masks, their menus were disposable paper, and several tables around the restaurant were removed or closed off to allow for social distancing. It was very reassuring to see that staff being so careful while handing our food and drinks and it was great to see managers on the floor helping out as well to make sure everything was running smoothly and everyone was staying safe.

But enough of the safety measures, though they certainly are important when deciding where to eat nowadays, and on to the food!

The food menu at Park Pizza & Brewing Co. consists mainly of pizza (duh), but they also have some salad options for entrees and a few delicious appetizers and desserts. Our table started out with their Giant Soft Baked Pretzel with Jalapeño-Hefeweizen Cheese. The pretzel was incredibly soft and delicious and the cheese dip is way less spicy than it sounds.

We then each opted to order a 12" personal pizza rather than going for the larger sharable option, both because we all wanted to try different things and because sharing food probably isn't the best when you're trying to socially distance. I got the Chicken and Goat pizza which comes with garlic cream, goat cheese, fire-roasted chicken, and avocado (pictured below). If you have ever had white-top pizza, it was very similar to that, but the avocado gave it an interesting and delicious twist. All of their pizzas are brick-oven-fired so they have that crispy and smokey crust that you can only get from a true oven-fired pizza. I ended up with leftovers due to the large size of the pizza and how rich it was, but the slices were just as good the next day!

The staff surprised our friend with a pizza cookie with gelato for dessert; they even put in some candles our friend brought and sang happy birthday! Though I didn't have any of the dessert, again for obvious COVID-19 reasons, I was told it was delicious. It's definitely something I am looking forward to trying on my next visit!

Overall, I was very impressed with the staff and the food at Park Pizza & Brewing Co. The next time I decide to venture out of solitude for some pizza, I will definitely be heading there. I highly recommend you try it too!

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
