Cincinnati Magazine’s popular Slice Night is returning to Yeatman’s Cove for an in-person evening of all-you-can-eat pizza for an incredible cause. The event was virtual last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Slice Night 2021 is set for Tuesday, September 28 from 5-9 p.m.
Now in its eighth year, Cincinnati Magazine’s Slice Night 2021 event features pizza from nine of Greater Cincinnati’s most popular pizzerias with 100 percent of ticket proceeds benefiting cancer patients and care teams at the University of Cincinnati Cancer Center (UCCC).
“We are thrilled to be coming together to showcase some of our city’s incredible local pizzerias all for a very worthy cause,” said Ivy Bayer, Publisher of Cincinnati Magazine. “Slice Night is a fun and delicious way to not only support the pizza joints you love during this challenging time for local restaurants, but you will feel no guilt about your endless pizza consumption as 100 percent of Slice Night ticket proceeds go directly to the important work of the UC Cancer Center, and the patients they care for.”
This event is a pizza lover’s dream. Guests will enjoy upbeat music and entertainment from DJ Toad while strolling the riverfront and enjoying unlimited pizza samples from Cincinnati’s favorite local pizzerias. Fritsch from Q102 will be in attendance also, serving as the official event emcee. Bonus menu items include pasta, gnocchi, salads and snacks from sponsors. Beer, wine, bourbon cocktail, soda, and water will be available for purchase. Health and safety protocols will be in place.

“We live in the greatest community in the world and it is so important that those living here have the opportunity for the healthiest, happiest, and longest lives possible,” said William Barrett, MD, professor and chair of the UC Department of Radiation Oncology and co-director of the UC Cancer Center. “We are diligently working to minimize the burden of cancer in our community — for Greater Cincinnati to have both the lowest rate of cancer and the best possible outcomes.”
