Tiki-inspired pizza? I'm guessing there will be pineapple involved.
Find out during an upcoming at a collaboration between Via Farina and Laka Lono Rum Club. The one-night-only takeover, set for Aug. 9, will include tiki-inspired appetizers, pizza and pasta dishes, as well as tiki cocktails from Laka Lono bartender Bradley Moore.
The takeover will run from 5 pm. to 11 p.m. at Via Farina, 1108 S. 10th St. For more information, click here.

FOOD PROWL: We hit nearly every pizza restaurant in town to pick our three winners, and this remains one of my favorite food prowls we ever did. Spoiler alert: It was a three-way tie between Frank's Pizzeria, Dante Ristorante and La Casa. Read more.
LIGHTHOUSE PIZZA: This locally owned spot is about to open a second location in the Capitol District. Try the house signature Sparky slice, topped with spicy sauce, cooling cream cheese and lots of meat, including a hefty amount of sausage and pepperoni. Full review.
VIRTUOSO: Upping the pizza game in Benson, this slice house takes care with its product. Each slice has just the right amount of acidic, house-made red sauce, a perfect sprinkling of cheese and, in every case, plenty of toppings, but not so much that the svelte crust becomes weighed down. Full review.
NOLI'S PIZZERIA: I like Noli's enough to have reviewed it twice. The DiManzo is a neighborhood favorite. 2017 review. 2015 review.
VIA FARINA: I dig this Little Italy spot for more than just its pizza — try the rigatoni! But a number of their pizzas are great, too. The Autumno, a white pie topped with winter squash, pancetta, grana padano, Monatasio, calabrian chili oil and Saba is excellent. Full review.
PIZZERIA DAVLO: One of the only deep dish houses in the city, and, in my opinion, the most legit. Full review.
FRANK'S: I can't count the times I've been back to Frank's since I wrote this review in 2013. But I can remember the time I went with friends to tackle the restaurant's 30-inch "Big Joe." (Yeah, I managed not even one slice.) Full review.
A classic Margherita pizza from Dante in Omaha.
