The downside of camping?
You can't really balance a pizza stone on that roaring pile of twigs you tell your girlfriend is a fire.
At Homeslice, however, you'll find a log cabin interior (the wood's imported from Oregon) so you can set up camp in the urban wilderness of Lincoln Park.
Let the menu be your map as you navigate 30 unique pies. Stay on the trail with the traditional three-cheese Boyler Room pizza, or go off the beaten path with the Funky Bird pizza -- chicken, bacon & cream cheese.
For the tree-huggers, they have gluten free crusts as well as a pie with seven types of vegetables and three different cheeses named Huges Delight, yours to enjoy on high-tops made with rounds from 200-year old trees.
Stay hydrated during this gluttonous excursion with a Green Line cocktail while snacking on beer-basted breadsticks served with warm goat cheese & marinara dipping sauce.
Yes, it’s much tastier than trail mix.
