Giordano’s – Chicago

I recently got a chance to go to Chicago and actually hang out for about a day before having to do what I went there for, which is work. It’s a pretty cool town. It was unseasonably warm as well, so it was especially nice to wander about.
Our first team dinner was at Giordano’s, so we could try chicago-style deep-dish pizza. The pies take awhile to cook, so you order your food in advance while you wait for it to cook and while you wait for an open table. There are plenty of bars to keep you busy during the wait.
We also ordered a regular thin-crust pie for those not into the deep-dish. This wasn’t particularly exciting to me.
Here’s a plain deep-dish. The size of this pie was huge. It was almost scary. And the depth was also surprising. I had never experienced genuine chicago-style pizza. Plus, I actually don’t really like deep-dish pizzas, in general. But this thing? I surprised myself and really enjoyed it. It’s mostly cheese, and that’s no exaggeration at all. It’s just filled with pounds of melted cheese. There’s a bit of a crust at the bottom and up the sides. But basically, you’re looking at a big hunk of melted cheese. A delicious hunk of melted cheese. I could barely eat one slice. After that, I was pretty much done!
Oh, and right after I got to my hotel, I walked to Hendrickx Belgian Bread Crafter and had an almond croissant. This thing was really different from any croissant I’d had before. I highly recommend it!

    fe and by “real” folks, rather than the seasonal luggage that are featured alongside models within the company’s ancient ad campaigns. during this case, four-year-old C.J., son of Laila Ali (a champion in her own right), stands tall close to his proud grandfather, who features a Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas Keepall serving as a luxury gym bag at his feet. The ads seem to be simply the primary component in Ali’s involvement with Louis Vuitton – investigate a teaser video with him and Yasiin Bey (who you may recognize higher as Mos D.Louis Vuittonef) once the jump. that point of year again: time for ad campaigns!
