Jon Stewart and journalist Maziar Bahari were recently in town to promote the new film Rosewater, directed by Stewart and based off of Maziar’s life. They got the chance to sit down with B96’s Showbiz Shelly to talk about the movie… and deep dish pizza. Shelly happened to have one of our pizzas on hand and offered it to Jon – take a look…. ↓
Jon Stewart and Maziar Bahari talk ‘Rosewater’ and Deep Dish Pizza
It was exactly one year ago that Jon Stewart decided to diss Chicago deep dish pizza so Marc Malnati decided to respond with a proposition for the New Yorker. Marc said he would make pizza for Jon and all of his friends so he could give Chicago-style deep dish a try. Jon took Marc up on his offer and then, on national television, declared a truce between Chicago and New York with regards to pizza.
Every year, employees, friends, and families from Lou Malnati’s and Soul City Church join together to assemble food baskets and distribute them to families who otherwise would not have a Thanksgiving meal. Each basket includes a turkey or ham, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, cookies, and more. Hand-drawn cards, filled with Thanksgiving well wishes, are also included with each basket.
Together we can fulfill (and hopefully surpass!) our goal of providing 1,350 families with a meal this Thanksgiving. Baskets will be distributed to families in need through Breakthrough Urban Ministries, Lawndale Community Church, River City Community Church, and By the Hand Club for Kids.
If you would like to join us in celebrating the spirit of Thanksgiving, mention the Thanksgiving Food Basket Drive when placing your order now through November 21st, and Lou Malnati’s will donate $2 to the Thanksgiving Basket Fund.*
*May not be combined with any other promotions/discounts, including orders for Giveback Fundraisers. Email must be mentioned or shown at time of purchase. Lou Malnati’s will donate $2 from every order now through November 21, 2014 up to $30,000.
Wouldn’t it be great to wake up happy seven days a week? Going to work shouldn’t feel like a chore, but rather it should feel like you are leaving one family to go spend time with another family.
We want our people to love what they do and who they work with. That’s why we surround ourselves with people who value excellence, integrity, hospitality, and teamwork.
