We are incredibly excited to announce our first-ever original Kidlist event: A Kids Make-Your-Own Pizza Night at Stix & Stones in Burr Ridge on Tuesday, September 26, 2017.
Stix & Stones is a fun restaurant at Burr Ridge Village Center with a great ambiance that we think you will enjoy. They make their own homemade dough with “00” flour to create the classic crisp and chewy crust, their sauce is made with San Marzano tomatoes, and fresh mozzarella is made right there in the restaurant!
On the 26th, you can choose between two seatings (5:30 or 6:15 pm) where your kids can dress the part with a nice, adjustable chef’s hat and apron, which you are welcome to take home.
The restaurant manager will be there and everyone will be meeting the chef, who will talk to the kids about how they make the dough and wood fire the pizzas. Your kids will then create a personal pizza from pressing out the dough, spreading the sauce, choosing their toppings, and arranging it on their pizza (pizzas will be labeled as they go into the oven, so they are sure to get their masterpiece back to eat). The pizza makers will also receive a drink and their choice of a cookie or scoop of Plush Horse ice cream. We will also provide Kidlist activity booklets with games, coloring, and more to enjoy while they are waiting for their pizza to be baked.
And guess what… Parents, grandparents, caregivers, or whoever is accompanying the pizza makers will receive 15% off all food, beer, and wine while at the event! Of course, great wood fired pizza should have great beer to go with it, and their selection of noteworthy craft beers is locally inspired. You’ll find unique and delicious beers that you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
You will also be bringing home discounts and freebies from Stix & Stones and be the first to have your very own Kidlist car or refrigerator magnet.
We are not placing an age requirement for participants, so please use your judgement as to whether your child will enjoy making their own pizza and is able to sit on a stool to participate. It’s going to be a blast!
