Update Sept. 24 9:20 a.m. | Bryce Harper struck out twice Monday in the Nationals’ 7-2 win over the Phillies.
The &pizza inside the Rayburn House Office Building will sell $3 pies on Tuesday and Thursday in light of former Washington National-turned-Philadelphia Phillie Bryce Harper’s return to D.C. The catch? He has to strike out against his former home team for staffers to get a piece of the pie.
We sure hope &pizza has a lot of extra dough, because Harper strikes out roughly once a game, and the Phils are in town for five games this week, including two on Tuesday.
The House-side lunch spot is honoring a Sunday tweet by the D.C.-based company that’s giving pizza lovers three minutes to text #UROUT to #200-03 whenever Harper strikes out. A code will be sent, but the purchase has to be made online or through the &pizza app.
While the Nationals and Phillies play a five-game series this week, the games on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons take place during &pizza’s business hours inside the Rayburn House Office Building.
$3 pizzas? Yes indeed…
Bryce Harper returns to DC tomorrow + we’re celebrating with $3 pizzas. Whenever he strikes out, text #UROUT to #200-03 to get your code.

The Rayburn &pizza opened earlier this year. It’s the 33rd shop for the chain, which calls itself a “homegrown D.C. craft pie purveyor.”
