To Our Bears Fan Club Members from Ronnie, Trish and Bob;
Hello Bears Fans – Happy Holidays to everyone! I hope you and your families are safe and healthy!
Let’s talk Bears football! Our crazy season fits right in with this crazy 2020 year, where we were 5 and 1 and then, well, things just fell apart for the next six weeks. We all went from being proud Bears fans to being very frustrated and embarrassed. After all that, we still have a slim chance to make the playoffs. Now Nagy’s job is in jeopardy as well as Pace and our team could be starting over next season. But I’m hoping with our re-shuffled offensive line, and Trubisky playing with a chip on his shoulder, that we may have a shot. Throw in Montgomery becoming the Back we always knew he was and the Offensive Coordinator finally realizing what we have in Cole Kmet and how best to use him, and Graham to compliment Robinson and our young receivers and we’ll get this Offense really moving. If that all comes together, we might just have a shot! Continue reading Bay Area Chicago Bears Fan Club – December Update
As we enter the Holiday season, all of us at Windy City Pizza and BBQ wish to thank all of you for the support and loyalty so many of you have shown by ordering lunches and dinners for takeout or delivery over the last nine (!) months of pandemic shutdown!
As we work hard to survive the temporary closing of the Windy City dining room and bar, every order makes a difference in keeping the doors open until we can safely welcome everyone back!
Third-Party Delivery Apps Take a Big Percentage of Our Takeout and Delivery Revenue
One hurdle to ensuring the survival of local restaurants is the fees third-party delivery services like DoorDash, UberEats and GrubHub charge for their services. It is no secret that those fees can add up to 30% of the check on many orders! Continue reading The Best Way to Order from Windy City Pizza and BBQ
To Our Chicago Bears Fan Club Members from Ronnie;
Hello Bay Area Bears Fans!
I hope all of you are doing well and keeping your blood pressure down with all of these Bears games! I wish we could all be at Windy City Pizza enjoying the season together. Unfortunately we can’t, but at least we have Bears football to watch. Here we are at 4-1 and haven’t really hit our potential yet! Our defense is playing pretty well but not great. They are missing a lot of tackles and committing penalties, all of which are driving me crazy! But at least they are making the plays when we really need them to. It’s only a matter of time before Quinn and Mack really start wreaking havoc on the opposing offense, and that’s when the rest of the D benefits. Continue reading Bay Area Chicago Bears Fan Club – October Update
To Our Bay Area Bears Fan Club Members:
We are missing you already! Usually at this time the Windy City crew is excitedly making plans for the upcoming season, looking forward to seeing all the fans, digging out Bears banners and prizes from our storage shed while checking in with Ronnie, who manages to find more and more novel BEARS prizes with each new season. So, as with many things since mid-March, we are all feeling a little flat, trying to get through this tough time of Covid and focused on keeping all of our great employees safe.

During the weeks of sheltering in place, folks are ordering food to take a break from cooking, and to support local restaurants like Windy City. We very much appreciate all the support we have received from our loyal customers. But it’s natural to be concerned about the safety of ordering in food while trying to practice social distancing to stay healthy.
As quoted in an April 13 article on the Food Network:
“Health authorities affirm that there is no evidence that food or food packaging is causing the spread of coronavirus,” said Tamika Sims, PhD, Director of Food Technology Communications at the International Food Information Council (IFIC).
These are the precautions Windy City is taking to ensure our customers are protected during no-contact order pickup:
