Picasso’s: First birthday, new sign, free Chicken Poop

FINALLY! A sign. I’d say it was worth the wait.

Seems like just yesterday I was stalking the space at 621 W. Douglas, trying to get someone, ANYONE, to tell me about the pizza place that was under construction.

But that was an entire year ago, and now, I can’t imagine a life without Picasso’s Pizzeria in it.

The restaurant, which makes giant and fabulous slices with heavenly crust and magic sauce, turned 1 on March 5.

Picasso’s is celebrating now, with the addition of a new sign (previously, you had to rely on all five senses to locate the business along west Douglas). And on Monday, owner Kurt Schmidt — whose sister-in-law is Chicken Poop founder Jamie Tabor Schmidt — will distribute free tubes of Chicken Poop with each slice purchased, while supplies last.

Race you there.
