    Seeing as most of us have been &/or will be crazy for the holidays, let's get together after the winter holidays are over.

    Based on a strong & noble suggestion from a friend, Piece Pizza was suggested. The pizza is thin crust New Haven style, with a bright garlicky sauce. To boot, the beers at Piece are tasty as well.

    Time: likely 6:30 or 7PM

    Venue:
    Piece Brewery & Pizza
    www.piecechicago.com

    Right now, there are approx 10 folks attending. Everyone is welcome to attend, please indicate interest on this thread.

    Be sure to tip well so they don't also give you the Pendulum.

    Server: Do you want your pizza cut in six slices or eight?
    Me: Six, I couldn't possibly eat eight.

    so not the group of 27 we thought would show but a gallant showing of 19 on a cold, snowy night. We had prime digs reserved (thanks to @P La Rue ) with a large TV to watch the game but most were talking points/miles/travel.

    Food: Piece serves very good pizza but also some unusual ones, such as a white pizza w/mashed potatoes added. A delicious pizza that took my by surprise, the garlic & potato was just such a good combo, for sure a carb overload

    It was a great group and a great location. Sweet Willie triumphs again!

    In addition to the mashed potato/garlic pizza, we also tried a honey butter fried chicken pizza, a sausage and mushroom pizza and a pepperoni and basil pizza. All "New Haven" style and all delish. I agree with Sweet Willie that the mashed potato pizza was the most surprising (in a good way). Our server was Liam, the manager was Brandon and the brewer's name was Jonathan Cutler who by the way comped us a couple pitchers of the beer of the night that most drank called "Golden Arm". It was a kolsch style beer and perfect with the pies.

    Nice to see you all. P La Rue
