Eat a pizza, have a pizza at Fi’lia Restaurant

Pizza may not be able to solve all of our problems, but it has a way of making things just a little better. For this reason, the Fi’lia Restaurant in Brickell is giving away free pizza to first aiders and employees on leave every Friday with its “Eat a Pizza, Give a Pizza” initiative. If you’re a first responder or a local unemployed due to COVID-19, go to the restaurant between 5pm and 8pm to pick up your free cake – it comes first, first serve. To donate pizza just add another $ 10 to your bill and Fi’lia will use it for this week’s giveaway. Friday, July 3, 5pm to 8pm at Fi’lia Restaurant, 1300 S. Miami Ave .; 305-239-1330; filiarestaurant.com.
