Hersh’s Pizza in Baltimore made the above post on Facebook before Ray Rice was released by the Baltimore Ravens and indefinitely suspended by the NFL.
Here’s the text:
Dear Lovers of Women, Not Hitting Women, Non Violence and Just Generally Being a Good Person,
Come trade your Ray Rice Ravens Jersey in for a free pizza at Hersh’s. These jerseys will save us money on toilet paper this week.
Hersh’s Pizza and Drinks is at 1843-45 Light Street in downtown Baltimore.
From their about section on Facebook:
We’re a lively neighborhood pizzeria marrying the fun of pizza with the Mediterranean devotion to clean and vibrant flavors. The centerpiece of our menu is the 11″ Neapolitan-style pizza. And while pizza is the driving force behind the genesis of Hersh’s, we also serve a tightly-edited menu of small plates which features seasonal produce and handmade pasta and Italian sausage.
Hersh’s is also a bar with a youthful urban vibe, with a drinks philosophy that centers on smaller, interesting producers and fresh, house-made components. We stock our ten taps with a variety of microbrews, and our vintage cocktails spotlight the renaissance in American craft spirits.
UPDATE from Hersh’s on Facebook:
Suggestions for what to do with all the Ray Rice jerseys we collect, since there are only so many we can use for toilet paper? Let us know! Also, Hersh’s will donate $2.70 to House Of Ruth Maryland, Inc. for each jersey we receive. Eat in only.
