Pie-Eyed Pizza banks on late-night crowds. A handful of tables allow binge drinkers to lay down a post-bibendial layer of alcohol-absorbent mozzarella after tossing back one too many until five or six in the morning on weekends. It keeps three to four pizzas under heat lamps for slice sales at any given moment. Buy a slice for $2.85 ($3.15 with toppings), or order a whole pie in thin or thick configurations. Choose from the standard array of toppings, but, as the owner warns, "nothing too California!" You can also get the normal range of pizzeria appetizers, including mozzarella sticks, fried mushrooms and zucchini, and French fries.
