The Unconventional Oven, which describes itself on Facebook as a Food Truck, Caterer and Pizza Place is hosting a grand opening celebration on Friday at Breakpoint at the Boardwalk, 2201 South Lakeshore Boulevard on the South East shores of Ladybird Lake. For entertainment, the company has booked The Pizza Underground, a band that does pizza-themed covers of Velvet Underground material and features Macaulay Culkin on percussion and kazoo. (seriously)
According to the Unconventional Oven the first 800 RSVPs for the event, which also features wacky pizza-related games, comedy and free beer, went in less than 24 hours. They’ve opened up a limited VIP RSVP which adds free massages, liquor and (presumably less distressing) restrooms for $20.
