Christian Hosoi Book Signing on Dec. 1

On Saturday, December 1st, Pizzanista! hosted a book signing with Christian Hosoi for his new memoir, Hosoi: My Life as a Skateboarder Junkie Inmate Pastor.

The event was sponsored by Vans, with music by special guest Ray Barbee.

We had an amazing turnout of young and old skate fans from near and far, as well as a contingent of iconic pro skaters who showed up to support, such as Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Lance Mountain and Paulo Diaz.

Guests dined on a custom Hosoi-designed pizza—”The Loco Moco Hawaiian-style Pizza”—with ground beef, onions, rice, fried eggs & brown gravy. Pizzanista! also created a limited edition T-shirt, pizza boxes and stickers for the evening.  The first 10 people who purchased the Hosoi book + pizza received a Vans gift certificate.

Many thanks to Christian, Vans, Ray and all of our friends + fans for a fantastic evening!
