This past Thursday, our team was out in the South Loop for the First Annual Jones College Prep Pizza Wars Fundraiser. Lou’s was a crowd favorite as we took home 1st place for “Best Pizza,” defeating Father and Son Pizza and Pie Eyed Pizza!
With the warm weather finally here, we also found our way outdoors this weekend at the 50th Annual Hegewisch Babe Ruth Baseball league tournament. Lou’s sampled to over 200 participants and many who currently go to our Midway restaurant were sharing in the excitement and anticipation of our Schererville opening later this summer.
Also, on Saturday, Lou’s was on hand at Lincolnwood Library for their Summer Reading Kickoff Party. Due to weather, the event had to be moved indoors but Lou’s continued in the fun and handed out over 250 slices to local Lincolnwood residents!
And finally, on Sunday, we marched their way over to Soldier Field for the Best Buddies Friendship Walk. With over 1000 people in attendance, Lou’s was a huge hit as we sampled out over 500 slices of pizza and the lines wrapped around the entire park! The entire Best Buddies program was super grateful for Lou’s being out there. There was a special guest DJ appearance from local superstar Chicago DJ’s Milk N Cooks who shared how much they love our pizza! A big thank you is in order to Peter, Philip and the rest of the South Loop staff for helping to make this event a success!

Hosted by the Stirling Hall Art Center and Lake Forest Parks & Recreation, this event introduced children and their parents to a day full of demonstrations. The focus was hands-on “try it” workshops like hand-building in clay, Halloween themed crafts, watercolor painting, and a meet & greet with new art instructors.
We had a fantastic time sampling deep dish and handing out incentive coupons to the young artists!
