It’s been 5479 days since the Carol Stream Lou Malnati’s opened its doors in 1999.  Since then we’ve made 15 trips around the sun and we’ve made thousands of pizzas.  In honor of our anniversary, let’s take a trip down memory lane to recall a few happenings from ’99.

  • Michael Jordan retired.  (for the second time)
  • Napster debuted.
  • President Bill Clinton is acquitted by the United States Senate in his impeachment trial.
  • Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” from the Titanic Sound Track, dominates the Grammy’s, winning Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television.
  • John F. Kennedy Jr.’s plane went down off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard.
  • All My Children star Susan Lucci finally wins a Daytime Emmy after being nominated 19 times, the longest period of unsuccessful nominations in television history.
