Pitfire Pizza To Open Pie Society, A Secret Late-Night Speakeasy

Sommy Rhee
It never fails. The word "secret" always sends off a jolt of immediacy. Secret? What secret? WE NEED TO KNOW!  
 
What we discovered is this: Pitfire Pizza in Costa Mesa is opening a hidden speakeasy in the back of the restaurant at the end of May. It's called Pie Society and it'll have its own special entrance and food and drink menu. Pitfire co-founder and chef Paul Hibler tells us guests may need a password to enter the dark-walled, dimly-lit gathering space.  

"My vision for Pie Society is to be built in the tradition of a speakeasy, complete with interesting crafted cocktails by mixologist Steve Garcia, and food menu developed by myself and chef Jason Neroni from my other restaurant, Superba Snack Bar," Hibler says. "Pie Society will hold true to the Pitfire ethos; it will be reasonably priced and offer lots of value. It's going to be a place for Orange County residents to come late-night."

Can't wait to see what's in store. For now, you can check out Pitfire's regular-menu cocktails, including the Flaming P

WHY IN HELL DO YOU NEED A PASSWORD FOR A PIZZA RESTAURANT? 

CAN I PLEASE EAT A PIZZA BY MYSELF IN MY DARKENED ROOM?
WHILE WATCHING A MOVIE.

Speakeasy?  kind of like the secret menu? if that's what it takes to sell them Pitfire pizzas, good for them, If I want to have a good cocktail or drink, I will go to a BAR a real BAR, even if they are in a basement and are speak easy kind of people, and if  they give a slice of pizza so much the better, what on earth is going going on? pizza shops in the speak easy business, I thought prohibition ended years ago? of course I was born in the seventy's and there is great possibility that when born I was dropped on my head that should explain it all, cause it makes no sense to me...
