Cane Rosso’s First Houston Outpost Was Vandalized Last Night

Come on, guys

The offending tag was scrawled across these glass windows.

Cane Rosso

It would appear that not everyone is excited about the arrival of Cane Rosso, the Dallas-based Neapolitan-style pizza restaurant that is slowly getting ready to open its doors in The Heights. Just hours after Eater reported that Cane Rosso’s sign had been erected, a civically-minded graffiti artist decided to use the building underneath that shiny new addition to send a message.

A photo posted to Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier’s Facebook page this morning shows off the damage. It’s a bit hard to read, but if you look closely, you can see that the scrawled message reads "fix the sidewalk first." See for yourself:

Welp...welcome to Houston! In the future, emails are easier.

According to Jerrier, the vandal rode by Cane Rosso at around 3:30 a.m. on a bike to complete his task, though it appears that no further damage was done. If you happen to know this graffiti artist, consider giving Cane Rosso a heads up – perhaps you’ll earn free pizza for your detective skills.
