Help us decide if Axios Nashville has a pizza curse

👋 Adam and Nate here. Readers, we need to address the elephant in the room: Axios Nashville might be cursed.

  • Nate wrote about a focaccia style pizza pop-up called St. Vito on Feb. 2. The headline for that story was, "Focaccia style pizza pop-up at Hathorne a hit."
  • Later that day, St. Vito and Hathorne announced the residency was ending.

Fast-forward to March 31, when Adam chronicled his maiden voyage to the legendary Joey's House of Pizza. What happened next?

📭 Considering our cold streak, we are begging for recommendations for your favorite Nashville pizza joints. Email [email protected]. It's time to break the curse.

  • We do have one caveat. Just like they don't allow "Stairway to Heaven" to be played at the music shop in "Wayne's World," we are asking that you kindly not recommend Five Points Pizza.
  • We already know Five Points is great, and we also don't want them to close if the curse is, in fact, real.
