    An MPer is flying into town on Wed Oct 2. His wife states she would like some Chicago deep dish pizza for dinner. Seeing as they are lodging out by ORD, we are going to have dinner at Lou Malnati's Elk Grove.

    Please come join us, ALL ARE WELCOME !

    Time: TBD at this point but probably will be about 6:30PM give or take 30 mins.

    Who would like to join us ?

    But I thought he wanted good Chicago pizza? There's a Geno's just east of the airport, isn't there?

    Just busting your chops... I miss me some butter-crust Lou's. Since I don't work for a Skokie-based company anymore, I don't get up there as often.

    yes there is, Gino's East Pizzeria @ 8725 W Higgins.
    oh, zing. That is where personal preference comes in. I have a very fond spot in my heart for the Gino's East located in the Loop on E Superior as decades ago, we used to get served beer when underage. While Gino's produces a good pie no doubt, I give my personal nod to the superior consistency of Lou's and if downtown, either Due's or Uno's (original location only please, the franchises are an embarrassment)

    In the past 3 years, I think the 4 times I've had deep dish has been with out of town MPers:D

    reservation is under Willie, our party is 13 people, so shouldn't be too hard to find a group our size. 3 sausage deep dish pan have been pre-ordered, if you don't want sausage, let me know ASAP.
