Where you’re from affects a number of things about you. You can’t completely escape your hometown because it becomes a part of you. For example, I don’t have a thick Southern accent, but I do like my tea that dark honey color and almost as sweet, my collard greens to be soaked in vinegar, and your fried chicken better have the right number of seasonings.

There is this feud between Chicago pizza and New York pizza. If you don’t know about it, what’s wrong with you? that’s ok, I’ll tell you about it.

A long time ago, a Chicago couple was cooking dinner and the husband was making his classic apple pie and the wife was going to make her famous chunky spaghetti. They were in the middle of making their meal when the husband placed his pie crust near the stove. The wife wasn’t paying attention and… ok I’m totally pulling your leg. This is not the story and if you believed me, I know a bank account you can wire 1,000,000 dollars to, and I can get you 2,000,000 dollars next week. Email me for the details. :)

Chicago pizzas are simply deep dished with much heartier toppings or filling, really. New York pizza is nice and thin to a foldable quality.

Please tell me what kind of pizza do you prefer – Chicago or New York. You can always tweet me your answer at @Reserve123.

Twitter news: We are having a contest tomorrow on our Twitter – @Reserve123 for two free tour tickets to this Chicago tour. You can try the pizza and tell me what you think.
