Visited on the way home from the 2010 Sexual Chocolate release. Charlottesville was as far as we dared to push as we dealt with deteriorating road conditions in the wake of February '10 Blizzard---the redux!

The MM is a BUSY pizza joint in downtown C-ville. Located within stumbling distance of UVA it was PACKED with college kids--and since it was a "we can't drive to go anywhere" Saturday night I can't say I was shocked!

Despite the throng of patrons our group of six only had to wait approximately 30 minutes for a table. While we waited we hung out in the bar area and enjoyed a pint from one of their 39 taps! A special was on...if it is precipitating they have a "when it rains it pours" special and all pints are $3!! Wow--awesome! So--$3 for a pint of Terrapin Hopsecutioner, yes please!

After we got seated our service was quite swift as our co-ed waitress and the kitchen staff were on top of things, VERY unlike the Asheville location where, I think, the influence of a certain chemical seems to slow the staff to a glacial pace.

Filling, carb laden, grub all around with tasty garlic bread, hummus, and HUGE, loaded to the brim with toppings pizzas. Plenty to eat for all and plenty left over for breakfast!

With 39 taps it isn't hard to find something good. Nice local presence with Star Hill and Blue Mountain Brewing alongside of a plethora of craft breweries from far and wide.

Another quality locale in the MM empire. I would stop in here again without hesitation.

Mellow Mushroom is widely known for their pizza and trivia night. While both of those are excellent, their beer selection tends to fly under the radar. There are of course the obligatory big brewery selections, but Mellow does a great job of offering craft brews at decent prices. They price their pints at $4, $5, and $6 a pint, with their happy hour price dropping the $4 and $5 pints to $2, at least on Tuesdays. They also have excellent pitcher deals on Wednesday nights which complement their trivia night well. Having a pitcher of local Starr Hill for less than $10 is an excellent deal not to be ignored. Their beer list is constantly being updated, and thus there is constant variety. In addition to their reasonable prices and decent selection, Mellow has a beer card that allows you to "sign off" on the number that corresponds to the beer on the menu, and if you complete the entire list you're rewarded with a custom glass. This is a great way in which they encourage craft brews to a larger market. This is especially excellent when many of the craft brews are $2 thanks to the happy hour special. Overall a recommended place to grab a pizza, answer trivia questions, and enjoy a modest selection of craft brews.
