Pizza "Wars" for a good cause!

So I was awoken this morning, not by my dogs or an alarm clock, but by my iPhone buzzing with a schlew of Twitter alerts.  As I reached for my phone I realized that there was also a couple of new text messages from a friend saying "Check out Twitter, you've been challenged to a bet by another pizza place... but they are in Los Angeles".   I must admit that I was in no mood to get into a "Pizza War" with another pizza place, especially at 6am.  When I finally pulled up our Twitter account, I realized that this was one war I was willing to wage. See the #pizzawar , as it is being coined on Twitter, was a great idea thought up by our (new) friends from Fresh Brothers Pizza where they would challenge a pizza joint in the city of the team that was currently playing their L.A. Lakers.   The bet is $500 for the overall series win... and here's the good part... the $500 goes to the charity of the choice of the winner.  How do you say no to a bet like that? (does anyone really lose?)

We gladly accepted their little wager and proudly named Autism Speaks as our charity of choice!   I've manifested a 4-3 victory by The Orlando Magic and can't wait to tell our new friends where to mail the check to Autism Speaks! Our good friends at Fresh Brothers' charity of choice is the 'South Bay Schools' in their local community.  We love working with other socially conscious businesses and it's obvious we've found one!

Since I am a busy eco-pizza-warrior, I must get back to work and start spreading the word about our Santa Monica, CA location opening in a couple of weeks!  I suppose we technically could end up donating money to a school in the backyard of one of our stores too... talk about "everyone wins"!

*** UPDATE ***
I want to give kudos to Abo's Pizza in Denver for getting this #pizzawar started!  They represented the Nugget's while playing the Laker's, so when we win, it will be an awesome display of "Paying it Forward"

So... Game 1 was a true whooping on behalf of the Lakers. Tonight the Orlando Magic look MUCH better and looks like we may even the score!!!
