Lakewood Pizza Bake-Off 2012 Hosted By Lakewood Kiwanis
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 p.m. to 8 p.m. 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 wristband 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 at 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.
