Sixth Street revelers will have one less post-drinks pizza option after this weekend. The pizza parlor Hoeks Death Metal Pizza is closing its doors Sunday after 25 years in business.  

According to its website, the pizza joint opened on Sixth Street in 1993. Known for its soundtrack of heavy metal music, Hoeks serves up small and large handmade pizzas and slices to go with classic toppings. 

Pizza fans will have one last chance to grab a slice at the eatery’s goodbye shindig on Sunday, June 24. Patrons are encouraged to also stop by for drinks next door at Dirty Dog Bar for their anniversary. 

According to the event description on Facebook, the bar promises “we do know that we'll be back.”
