#SurfCitySocial: Making Connections Over Delicious Zero Zero Pizza

The first Surf City Social of the year was successfully held on February 8, 2017 at Zero Zero Pizzeria in Downtown Huntington Beach. Part social club, part business mixer, #SurfCitySocial is part of Surf City Family’s new advertising program. The event gathered the movers and shakers of Huntington Beach including business owners, bloggers, and local photographers.

Seen in the crowd was Anaheim White House Chef/Owner and philanthropist Sir Bruno Serato – he was just getting a pizza but Surf City Social attendees all gave him their best wishes after the fire that destroyed his restaurant.

Authentic Roman pizzas with ingredients from Italy and organic flour make the pizzas truly unlike any other pizza you’ve tasted in these parts.

A portion of the event proceeds benefited Build Futures, a local non-profit organization. According to Founder Kathy Tillotson: “Our mission is to take homeless 18-24 year-olds off the streets and provide them with stable, safe housing and the services, resources, and support needed to obtain and maintain employment, self-sufficiency and long-term independence.”

Located at 221 Main St., Huntington Beach, between Meleesa the Salon and Starbucks, Zero Zero Pizzeria (formerly Doppio Zero) serves pizza by the slice. They are open daily. Please check their website for their hours of operation.
