We've been following the U.S. Pizza Museum pretty closely ever since it burst onto the scene back in March. The museum, which doesn't yet have a permanent physical home (but has a great online home and a huge collection of artifacts) has hosted several events and a window gallery at the Whistler. Friday night, at Paulie Gee's in Logan Square, many of Chicago's best pizza places are coming together to offer free snacks and celebrate pizza history.

The event is a debut for the new Pizza Museum exhibit at Paulie Gee's, which runs from November 11-January 15, 2017. You should definitely check out the exhibit, which includes historical objects from pizza places all over Chicago. But tonight is when you get the free stuff! From 6-8 p.m. (while supplies last) several local pizzerias are handing out free slices at Paulie Gee's to celebrate the opening - no purchase or ticket required.

Participating restaurants include:

  • Coalfire
  • Dolce Italian
  • Paulie Gee’s Logan Square
  • Piece Pizzeria & Brewery
  • Robert’s Pizza Company
  • Roots Pizza
  • The Stop Along
