[Chicago Pizza News] Uno Makes Presence Felt at Inauguration

Uno's, the creator of deep dish pizza, and now an international pizza chain based in Boston, made a few appearances in DC around the inauguration of Chicago's own Barack Obama. The Illinois State Society, which seems to be an organized devoted to Illinois' corporate interests, hosted a gala on the eve of the inauguration. The sold out event was one of DC's hottest parties that night and among the features was thirty different rooms with Chicago-related food. One of the rooms was hosted by Uno's. The event was, according to CPC sources in attendance, grossly overcrowded and the lines to get into every food room were obscenely long and slow-moving.

Washingtonian made it into the event and posted a picture, which is copied below. Uno's also catered a couple of private events.
