Jet's Skokie set for Free Pizza Day

"First, let’s get to the important news: Jet’s Pizza, 4112 Dempster St., will be giving out free slices of pizza from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26. The first 50 customers will also get a complimentary t-shirt," according to the Niles-Morton Grove Patch.

"Now, let’s get to the bold statement Jet’s co-owner Mark McConnell made: “Detroit is a bigger pizza town than Chicago,” he said. For the record, McConnell was being playful and half serious when he said that.

But Skokie is growing on McConnell, who moved from Warren, Mich., with his cousin, Kevin O’Donnell about two years ago."
