New Foodies Tour Series Continues With ABQ Pizza Tour
Albuquerque, New Mexico - July 11, 2011 - ABQ Trolley Co. is excited to continue their new series of tours designed to highlight the food and drink of Albuquerque, New Mexico. The 2011 Foodies tour series brings locals and visitors to the trails of the best food and drink in the city. The next tour in the series of five special tours is a pizza tour of ABQ, The Pizza Trail.

The Pizza Trail is the first of its kind in New Mexico. It will be held on Sunday, July 17th from 1:00pm - 4:30pm. Riders will try thin crust, New York style pizza in Downtown, pizza in a 150-year-old hacienda in Old Town, and cross the Rio Grande for wood oven pizza at a contemporary Italian Trattoria followed by a taste of the newest neighborhood pizzeria on the west side.

The Pizza Trail Includes round-trip transportation on a completely-custom, uniquely-Albuquerque, open-air trolley, pizza trivia (with great prizes), behind-the-scenes tours of each pizza parlor, and pizza samples at each location! Riders will also receive dough-tossing lessons at JC's New York Pizza Department and make their own pizza pie to take home with them at Nicky V's Pizzeria.

The Pizza Trail features the following Albuquerque pizzerias:
JC's New York Pizza Department (Downtown)
Old Town Pizza Parlor (Old Town)
Il Vicino (West Side)
Nicky V's Neighborhood Pizzeria (West Side)
