Gino’s East Deep Dish Pizza Coming to Phoenix!

CHICAGO (June 2016) Chicago and Phoenix share together in a love of dynamic food, historic culture, sports and community. Gino’s East’s longstanding tradition is the perfect way to bond these energetic cities. Now Gino’s East is proud to announce they will head to Phoenix to open their next location in Fall 2016 at 3626 East Indian School Road in Arcadia.

Chicago is home to deep-dish pizza and after 50 years, Gino’s East continues to revolutionize the market with innovative new pizzas in addition to the time-honored classics! Family-owned Gino’s East ships nationwide and has restaurants located across Chicagoland, and in Wisconsin, Texas, Mexico City and soon Arizona.

“We love our seasons here in Chicago, including the extreme polar vortexes and snowfalls, but we’re looking forward to bringing deep dish to the people of Arizona and all of our snowbirds living there now” says Noah Himmel, Executive Vice President and third generation of family owners. “Considering Phoenix has only seen an inch of snow twice in the 1930’s, we think is the perfect destination for our new location.”

Phoenix

Gino’s East Phoenix will feature an expansive outdoor patio, Gino’ legendary deep-dish pizza menu, a craft beer list and a premium cocktail and wine list.

The popularity of Gino’s East is obvious based on the amount of frozen pizzas shipped to the valley every year. Gino’s East looks forward to sharing their love of pizza in this vibrant city filled with breathtaking sunsets, desert scenery and majestic mountains.

Update January 2017:

Live Music Happy Hour at Gino’s Brewing Company

Happy Hour at Gino’s Brewing Company is getting kicked up a notch, with live acoustic sets every Wednesday! Join Matt Keen, of Rebel Soul Revival, Wednesdays all summer long from 5:30-7:30 PM for some classic jams and $3 pints of Gino’s Brewing Company beers! You won’t find a better happy hour deal, or a better environment, in all of River North!

About Matt Keen

“My name is Matt Keen and I am a singer/songwriter from Chicago, IL. I would fancy myself an eclectic with regards to my music and can’t specifically label myself into any particular genre. However, I play rock, folk, gospel, R&B, and the blues. I love to stay limitless regarding the possibilities of tunes I can share when playing in a live setting. I’ve had a number of great experiences at a wide variety of venues throughout my career. I have played at The Chicago Theatre, The Sandpoint Idaho Music Festival, The Marblehead, MA Music Festival, The Bluebird at Indiana University, and a wide array of clubs and bars all around the Midwest. A number of venues a bit less prestigious but none the less great! I am all about big crowds but am still enamored with intimate audiences, and play at listening room venues as well, such as, Di Luna’s, Sandpoint, ID. I can connect with 50 people just as seamlessly as I can with 5,000 and it is a serious strong suite of mine which keeps my fans intrigued and my non-fans wanting to become ones! If I am traveling outside of Chicago and it is not within driving distance (250 miles or less) I will need someone working sound at the venue to ensure the quality of the performance from a listening perspective. Within driving distance if necessary I possess a quaint and effective SHS Audio P.A that will comfortably power a performance for around 400 people. I currently don’t have any sort of light show but can stimulate a crowd regardless of antics and it’s something I pride myself on. Dependent on the venues location I can ensure a varied range of attendance. However, I always expect that if I make the venue money I am making myself money and so my drive to bring an audience is always high.”

Chicago Pizza Summit

The following is a guest blog post written by Anthony Spina, brand manager for Old Style beer

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.
