Here are some words that are great together: pizza and bargain. The team behind ~PALIO D’ASTI~ has opened a new takeout window in the Financial District, serving their Sicilian-style pizza by the slice. It’s called ~PALIO PRONTO~ and the rotating menu keeps all the slices and some seasonal salads at a low $5, plus you can get cannoli and tiramisu for $3.

On Wednesday June 12th from 4pm-7pm, they’re throwing a happy hour pizza party to celebrate the opening. The first 120 people to RSVP by email get a ticket; it’s $10 at the door for a drink ticket and unlimited pizza bites in lots of flavors. As for the Pronto, when the weather is nice, there’s outdoor seating, and you can check out their website for the day’s selections. Cash only, serving Mon-Fri 11:30am-2:30pm. 635 Commercial St. at Montgomery, 415-395-9800.

The newest location of the Green Chile Kitchen empire is the kitchenette at ~CHILE PIES (SWEET & SAVORY)~ in the Castro. They’ve been serving menu items from Green Chile Kitchen on a pop-up basis since March. To thank customers for all their support, they’ll be offering different items at half-price each week of June. This week is all about nachos (hell yeah), the 9th-15th it’s the taco plate, the 16th-22nd the flat enchilada, and, last but not least, from 23rd-30th it’s all about half-price burritos. 314 Church St. at 15th St., 415-431-9411.
