They don't sell pizza in Happy Days, which closes around 8.30 of the pm every day except Saturday when it is closed and Sundays when it tends to close around 4 of the pm.

I like Happy Days.

I don't much like Charlie Sheen (although I respect other's right to like him and appear in selfies with him).
I quite like the Museum.

I like William Makepiece Thackeray.
I'm not that keen on Jake Thackray.

Even as late as the 70's this was common around parts of the east end. Saturday is the Jewish sabbath and these areas were predominately Jewish.

Thackeray's Pepperoni was especially good though.

Petticoat Lane Market is closed Saturdays and the area around Happy Days is a bit of a deserted wasteground then, so there would be little custom and I suppose they want one day off.

But if you want to host a special event in this fantastically decorated licensed venue, then by prior arrangement a Saturday would be the ideal time to do it.

A bowl of chips, a floppy savaloy, a piece of battered cod, and a crunchy wally, all washed down with your pot o' rosey lee.

There is however a particularly good Pizza Parlour further up Middlesex Street - open 7 days a week until late! With the cheapest bottles of wine in the City. And I recommend the pepperoni. Although it seems doubtful that it was previously sampled by Thackeray.

Perhaps these dining establishments should not be visited by people who are liable to be sick to the stomach after visiting the Jack the Ripper Museum.
I wouldn't like to be responsible for the consequences.

As much as I read about serials, I think that this goes too far.
