Rally Pizza

Halloween Block Party at The Mill

The Mill—the trendy shopping and dining destination in central Vancouver, formerly known as Garrison Square—will host a Halloween Block Party on Sunday, Oct. 29, from noon to 5 p.m. This will be a free event open to the public to enjoy! Family-friendly activities include giveaways, a bounce house for kids, face painting, delicious bites from Rally Pizza and Smokehouse Provisions, and a photo opp with Rojo the Llama. Come dressed up in your Halloween costume and enjoy treats (no tricks!) from the many fine businesses located in The Mill. Try some of Rally’s frozen custard, boozy shakes, and wood-fired pizzas, or some of Smokehouse’s bacon molasses cornbread, beef brisket, pulled pork, and spareribs.

NW Wine Distributors will also be hosting a wine tasting with local Washington wines and Ben’s Bottle Shop will be selling beer and offering free tastings for imbibers. You’ll also want to visit the locally legendary Pines Coffee and sample one (or more) of their many housemade spiced coffee and tea drinks, like the Fort Vancouver (coconut caramel and dark chocolate), Mount St. Helens (smokey Ancho chiles, cayenne pepper, and dark chocolate), or Lodgepole Pine (juniper berry, pine, and orange).

The Mill is located at 7950 E. Mill Plain Boulevard where it intersects with Garrison Road. Ample free parking is available in the large lot.

Rally Pizza Grand Opening

Vancouver is about to get another nationally notable Neapolitan-style pizzeria, smack dab in the middle of Vancouver. (Who are the others, you ask? See the local buzz about Nonavo Pizza and Pizzeria La Sorrentina—which, according to Yelp reviewers, makes the best pizza in Washington). Rally Pizza—which will also sell salads, pizza-friendly side dishes, and small-batch frozen custard—is owned by a husband-and-wife duo who are giants in the pizza world: Alan Maniscalco and Shan Wickham. Maniscalco is Rally’s executive chef, making nearly everything in-house, including hand-pulled Mozzarella, ricotta, smoked meats, sauces, preserved chilies, and more. Wickham is general manager and pastry chef, specializing in rich vanilla custard “concretes” and sundaes. Rally will also offer a wide selection of Northwest wine, beer and spirits, as well as a walk-up counter for to-go orders.

Maniscalco began his culinary career over 20 years ago in Portland and has worked as a baker, cook, and pizza maker with artisans across the country. He created the artisan bread and viennoiserie program at Zibibbo 73 Trattoria & Wine Bar in Palo Alto, where he also met Wickham, a graduate of the California Culinary Academy for baking and pastry. Together, they opened Stone House Bread South in Michigan, where they baked breads and pastries in a massive wood burning oven, served as consultants for Avalon International Breads in Detroit, and redesigned the artisan bread line for all Midwest-region Whole Foods Markets. In 2003, they moved back to the West Coast. After working as production manger at Ken’s Artisan Bakery, Alan and Ken Forkish (yup, his real name) opened Ken’s Artisan Pizza in 2006, which became one of Portland’s busiest and most respected restaurants and gained national renown as one of America’s top pizzerias.

Rally Pizza is located at 8070 E. Mill Plain Blvd. in the new retail development called “The Mill” (but also known as Garrison Square). They’ll open at 4:30 p.m., in case you want to stand in line. If not, you can call first at 360-524-9000 or visit Rally’s website at www.rallypizza.com to see their menu.
