Lou Malnati’s employee serves up tradition

According to a news report from dailyherald.com, “Holiday traditions have a way of sneaking up on you. You do something or go somewhere a couple of years in a row and suddenly doing that or going there is a “tradition” and you just don’t feel right about skipping it.”

“Such is the case with the Christmas decorations at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, 1050 E. Higgins Road, Elk Grove,” said the story. “Server Vicki Lucki has been spending her own time and money to lavishly decorate the restaurant since it opened in 1971 and while doing the decorating has become a holiday tradition for Lucki, going to the restaurant to enjoy those decorations, along with the pizza, has become a holiday tradition for countless others. “There is a man who comes through here every year and one year he admitted to me that he is constantly on the road for business and has no real home so he stops here each Christmas season because he considers coming here his Christmas,” Lucki recalled. “It brought tears to my eyes.”
