What a Week!
From snow storms to Super Bowl Sunday snafus, it was definitely a week for the books.
We asked some of our Twitter fans what their favorite name for the historic snow storm was and these were the most popular: Snowpacolypse, snOMG, Snowtorious BIG, Snowcago, Snowmageddon - many names for a blizzard that had an incredible impact on the Midwest last week. By now, everyone has had a chance to dig themselves out but commuters everywhere are still feeling the effects. The storm gained intensity Tuesday night to the point where we had to close some locations earlier than the predicted 9pm closing time. As everyone knows, conditions only worsened come Wednesday, so much so that Lou Malnati’s stayed closed - we did not want to risk the safety of our customers and employees. Things finally got back to normal on Thursday and we were able to dig ourselves out and start the ovens! We would like to thank everyone once again for their patience and understanding last week. We truly do have the best customers in the world – even those that root for the Packers!
While we were sad the Bears weren’t the ones playing the Steelers last night, we have to admit it was an exciting game. Those that weren’t too interested in the game had the chance to catch some hilarious commercials – which one was your favorite? The Darth Vader Volkswagen commercial was pretty funny – check it out:
All in all, we think it’s safe to say that we’re ready for things to get back to normal after last week’s whirlwind of events and we’re ready for a change in pace as far as sports are concerned…. How many more days until Spring Training starts? =)
