Tonight: Free Calzone Day at DP Dough

In celebration of all things calzone and the new ownership and renovation of Albany’s D.P. Dough, the company will be hosting a Free Calzone Day tonight between the hours of 5 and 8pm.

To get a free calzone for dinner later today, all you have to do is come into the location at 212 Western Ave, secure your spot in line and tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram that you’re at D.P. Dough’s Free Calzone Day tagging the Albany location and you’re good to go.

D.P. Dough will only be offering 3 different calzones during this time (the Spinner Zone, Twilight Zone, & Roni Zoni) and will only be open for in-store business. After 9pm, normal business hours and delivery will resume.

D.P. Dough was recently revived and purchased by Albany area musicians, Nick Warchol, Craig Dutra & Stephan Stringer. The restaurant has since been totally revamped, and is now even home to the classic arcade games Street Fighter and Space Invaders.

Stop by tonight for their grand opening and check out what other new additions they have to offer. Plus… free calzones!
