Chicago has one of the greatest food scenes in the entire country. We have numerous events that celebrate this fact (including Wing Fest, Taco Fest, Bacon Fest, Lobster Fest, Donut Fest, Rib Fest, Burger Fest, Sausage Fest, Hot Sauce Fest, Oyster Fest, and Hot Dog Fest to name a few). Yet while Chicago may be one of the greatest culinary cities in the United States, it is THE GREATEST pizza city. To celebrate this fact, Old Style’s Pizza Summit was created. The event is a gathering of some of the most iconic and legit pizza establishments that both hold down the pizza scene and push it further.
To start, we began calling some of our favorite pizza establishments to invite them to be a part of the inaugural Pizza Summit. We called upon the classics first, which included Gino’s East. Gino’s East is one of the most iconic pizza establishments in Chicago, with a storied and delicious history. We also asked to the one man who embodies all things pizza and party, Andrew W.K., to give the inaugural keynote address. To round it our we brought our friends Empty Bottle Presents, Pizza Club Chicago, Malort and 1833 into the mix to maximize awesomeness.

Gino’s East deep dish pizza. Imagine the look on their tired faces when a frozen deep dish arrives via FedEx to their dorm. You go, Glen Coco. You’ve just made your kid’s day.

After a rough breakup. Have a friend who’s been dumped? While she’s burning all of her pictures and possessions that remind her of ‘that guy’, send her a pizza to ease the pain.

For new homeowners. Considering they won’t be fully unpacked for weeks, mail-order Chicago pizza will keep your best pals fed and full in their new abode. Send it their way after a long day of moving–you’ll be the first one invited over to use the pool.
