Happy 100th, Mary!

Free cake for Mary's Pizza Shack diners

MARYSArea Mary’s Pizza Shacks will celebrate what would have been founder Mary Fazio’s 100th birthday Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. Which, of course, means a free slice of birthday cake for diners throughout the day at all Mary’s locations.

The iconic pizzeria has been a Northbay staple since 1959, when Mary founded her first “shack” in Boyes Hot Springs, growing to 19 locations in Northern California. Fazio passed away in 1999, but her family continues to run the company.
