2012 LAKEWOOD PIZZA BAKE-OFF
Strike up the band! Bring out the 76 Trombones to lead the Big Parade! -- a parade
of Lakewood pizzas for the pleasure of customers at the Kiwanis Club’s Pizza Bake-Off,
Friday, January 27, from 5:00 to 8:00 in the East Cafeteria of Lakewood High School.
Customers serve themselves small pieces of pizza from each of 16 pizza
establishments. This will give the customers a basis for judging the pizzas. If any or all
of the pizzas deserve an encore, the customers may go back for all they can eat. In
addition, customers will receive free coffee and free tickets for soft drinks.
No one need worry about having to leave during the evening, because each customer
will receive a wrist band allowing his or her return.
The Pizza Bake-Off serves two of the most revered national institutions, namely,
democracy and the Super Bowl. Democracy is served in that customers will be asked to
vote for the best pizzas in three categories – People’s Choice (overall best); Best
Pepperoni; and Best Specialty. As for the Super Bowl, it will be only nine days away,
giving fans the right amount of time to use their experience of the Bake-Off in making
their choice of pizza to serve at the big event.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. However, students
(ages 13 to 18) can buy special discount tickets in advance at their schools (not at the
door) for $8. Proceeds from the Pizza Bake Off will support children and family
programs of the Kiwanis Club.
