In what just might be the best holiday since Thanksgiving (another day to celebrate food), National Pizza Pie Day is today. Don't miss your chance to celebrate with free slices of heaven at the following venues.
At Frasca Pizzeria and Wine Bar in Lakeview, this day of honor is given its due. Just by purchasing a drink from 4:30-7PM, you'll get complimentary pieces of assorted pizzas.

You can also build your own version from a long list of ingredients ($1-$3 extra each). On Mondays, Frasca also serves half-priced bottles of wine and features a kids-eat-free promotion from 4:30-6PM.
