Still have those late night pizza boxes stashed under your bed? Well, they could find a new home in the U.S. Pizza Museum which will debut during Old Style's previously announced Pizza Summit on April 3. The pop-up exhibit on the second floor of Chop Shop will display artifacts like retro pizza boxes, vintage advertisements, a Lego pizza delivery guy and a copy of the film Mystic Pizza on VHS.
The collection comes from Kendall Bruns, who decided to create the U.S. Pizza Museum so he could share his pizza-themed toys, buttons, records and vintage collectibles with other pizza aficionados. His passion for pizza started at an early age when he got his first job working at LaRosa's, a pizza parlor in Cincinnati. From that point forward, his life has been an endless love affair with cheese, sauce and bread.
Attendees will be able to take a look at Bruns' collection during the Pizza Summit, which will feature slices and pizza-inspired dishes from 12 of Chicago's favorite pizza joints. Didn't manage to snag a ticket to the anticipated event? You can still win one by attending any of the remaining Old Style's 30 Days of Pizza events.
