The Mystic Aquarium is hosting Pizza with Penguins on Friday, January 19th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. “If Penguins ate pizza, it would have anchovies on it! While anchovies won’t make this menu, kids and adults alike with love all the options on the pizza buffet and beverage bar!” Food is provided by Ocean Blue Catering.
