When you want something that sparks both the appetite and a conversation, hire Nomad Pizza’s unique food truck. This isn’t your average white box truck. Instead, it’s a restored 1949 REO Speedwagon that just so happens to come equipped with a wood-fired brick oven. Thin-crust pizza that makes even the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Craig LaBan ooze with compliments is what Nomad does best, with two locations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hopewell, New Jersey. The truck is limited to events within 30 miles of Hopewell. Events are typically two to three hours and include three options: just pizza, organic salad with pizza, or salad, pizza and dessert. 

October is the month of fall color viewing, pumpkin picking, and pizza. Yes, October is National Pizza Month, and if you’re looking to commemorate the occasion, head to New Jersey.

Others may disagree—let’s make that, others will certainly disagree—but last year Food & Wine Magazine named New Jersey the best pizza state in America, followed by Connecticut and New York in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively. Pennsylvania landed in seventh place and Massachusetts nabbed 10th place. 

 

After a nationwide search, the Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau (PHLCVB) has named Sheila Alexander-Reid the executive director of PHL Diversity. A business development division of the PHLCVB, PHL Diversity was created in 1987 and was the first multicultural division of a convention and visitors bureau in the country.
