On Tuesday night, 50 members of the Yelp Elite Squad (YES!) attended a pizza sampling bonanza at Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom in Lakewood, CO. As one of Yelp Denver’s first in-person events since March 2020, the energy and excitement on the rooftop patio was infectious. Our hosts, ever welcoming. Our community, just as friendly as we remember.
Old Chicago Pizza & Taproom is known for its original handcrafted flavors since 1976. Their Chicago-style pizzas, hefty tap list and signature appetizers have been favorites since the beginning. A complex and unique sampling menu awaited guests. Starters included Sicilian Pepperoni Rolls, Italian Nachos and Cheese Garlic Bread.
The evening went from 10 to 11 when the Old Chicago staff brought out their signature Chicago-Style Pizzas. Yelpers enjoyed the Classic 7, Tuscan Chicken w/ Spinach, and The Classic pies. In addition, the staff brought out their new Detroit-Style Insanity Pizzas, including the Farmer’s Daughter and Buffalo Cluck. Although guests were filling up from their main courses, an array of desserts were brought out to the rooftop patio. The Big Cookie (a giant oven-baked chocolate chip cookie) won the crowd over unanimously.
Yelp events are all about taking our online community offline—allowing them to experience local businesses and connect with fellow community members. Due to COVID-19, the last year and a half has been an uphill challenge when it comes to organizing experiences for the community. This event allowed us to safely reconnect with one another, meet new people and experience local businesses again.
