Home Run Inn Pizza, The Upside Down, Skorch Giveaway! 8/25/17

Is there anything better than some beers and a pizza with friends?  Or what about a pop-up bar based on the coolest show on Earth?!  Or can you beat a giveaway of cold hard cash from the hottest new app?!  I say all those things rock... keep reading to learn more and click HERE for my full segment on 101-WKQX. 

Home Run Inn Pizza

If you are a true down home Chicagoan, you've probably grown up with Home Run Inn Pizza.  But if you're only familiar with the frozen pizza we all most certainly have in our freezers, well, you're missing out big time.  Their brick and mortar locations are off the charts good pizza.  And their Lakeview location is one of my favorite places to go when I just want to relax with friends and have a cold beer and some deelish 'za.

And if that's your idea of a good time too, then head to Home Run Inn in Lakeview THIS WEEKEND.  All through Sunday Home Run Inn is teaming up with Buckle Down Brewery to offer beer flights, and great beer and pizza deals.  Like a pint and an 8in pizza for $10...what??!! Oh, and sit outside on their patio while summer is still here!

The Upside Down

Stranger Things has taken the world by storm.  It's probably the most binge-worthy show of all time... and if you couldn't get enough of watching it on Netflix... or you're getting insanely antsy for season 2, fear not my Upside Downers.  Emporium has taken their rotating pop-up space and turned it into the perfect replica of Hawkins in the 80's.  It's everything you could possibly want in a themed pop-up.  Including the blinking strings of Christmas lights, and tons of 80's music.  But the cocktails will really throw you into another realm.  Try Eleven's Eggos (a maple flavored slushy served with a waffle wedge) with or the Demegorgun, oooohhhhh creepyyyy.
