April 5: Deep Dish Pizza Day and Walk to Work Day
This particular pizza picture is taken from Giordano's website, but Chicago is home to a glorious variety of deep dish pizza emporiums (emporia?) including Lou Malnati's, Gino's East, and the originals, Pizzerias Uno and Due. This list is by no means comprehensive -- for one, it ignores all the stand-alone neighborhood joints that so many swear by -- but wherever you're planning to celebrate Deep Dish Pizza Day on April 5 you may wish to also consider celebrating Walk to Work Day on April 5 as well. You'll need to walk off some of these calories.
Friday will also be National Caramel Day, Hospital Admitting Clerks Day, and Go For Broke Day. It will also be Read a Road Map Day -- turn off that GPS and see if you can find your way anywhere (a pizza joint perhaps?) just by reading the map.
