Thayer Street Nice Slice — Closed

(4.15) Aarrgh! Saturday, April 15th, will be the last day of business for Nice Slice Pizzeria at the Thayer Street location.

They are moving into new digs on Westminster Street near White Electric and aiming for a May opening. Check out their Facebook page — they have very cool commemorative T-shirts for sale with artwork by Adam Suerte.

NS ownership have posted this farewell message with thanks and fond memories (Bruce?) and an explanation of the move (as if one was needed).

Our last day of slinging slices on Thayer will be April 15, so lets have a party and celebrate! We will keep you posted on what will happen next but mostly wanted to thank all of our supporters out there. Some didn’t think we’d make it 12 days, never mind 12 years so here’s to everyone who’s ever had a slice of the cranberry picnic and told there friends how great is it, to all the mf-BBQ CHICKEN lovers, to the boss Bruce Springsteen who just gets the regular cheese slice,.or to all the sports teams that mowed stacks of pizza after a match or game, late night strollers, and for the black sheep who said,” f-that, I’ll never eat over there!’ you know who you are and we love you for that. Another special thanks to all past and present employees who but there back into the movement. Your contributions mattered and are appreciated. We loved our little pizza shop and Thayer st. community with all our hearts but just can’t fight the corporate tide of big business. We’ve been flanked by empty stores, endless construction, and now parking meters with a terminator for an enforcer. Independent businesses are important and need your support. In the mean time, we will continue to get our west side location open. We are shooting for May. THANK YOU,… AND NO, YOU CAN’T CRUSH THE DREAM. The pie will remain the same and resurrect soon.

Seen here is the big Angela Davis wall. We’ll see if I hear from Shep Fairey’s people. (Fair use!) And below, the outdoor seats, perfect on hot summer nights.
