So what if the Bears aren’t playing in the big game this Sunday, at least we don’t have to watch the Packers play in it.
In honor of that-which-we-may-not-call-by-its-legally-trademarked-name, Patch is holding its own championship. We’re talking pizza here, and no one knows Oak Lawn’s pizza places better than our loyal readers.
In the next few days we’ll be pitting the best locally owned pizzerias against each other and Evergreen Park’s. And surely Oak Lawn’s pie can beat those wimpy pizzerias east of Pulaski Road to move on to the next round.
By locally owned, we mean our village’s independent, mom-and-pop owned, toss-the-dough-up-in-the-air kind of places. No franchises please.
Here’s how it works:
- Nominate your favorite pizza place in the comments or on the Oak Lawn Patch Facebook page.
- ONE winner will emerge from the Oak Lawn and Evergreen Park contenders so get ready to vote, vote, vote and talk some smack. I’ve seen the comments on this site. I know you’re up to it.
- The winner from our bracket will go on to compete against seven other winners from Palos, Orland, New Lenox, Tinley Park-Oak Forest, Frankfort-Mokena, Homewood-Flossmoor and Chicago Heights-Olympia Fields.
- Voting takes place from Feb. 2 until midnight Feb. 5.
In the meantime, read what you had to say about who makes the best pie in Oak Lawn:
So nominate your best locally owned pizza joint here on and on the Oak Lawn Patch Facebook page. Bragging rights—as well as contributing to our local tax base—are at stake here.
