Guests can enjoy this promotion all month long with no limit on how many times they try the 15 specialty pizzas Old Chicago offers. For every three they purchase during October, the fourth is free. As an added bonus, Old Chicago is holding a vote for guests to select their favorite pizza from the past. The pizza with the most votes will be featured in the I Love Craft Beer Mini Tour 2015.
