Bear Silber, from pizza eater to pizzeria owner.

In December 2006, we blogged about Bear Silber winning a pizza challenge at what was then called Pizza and Pipes. Well, Mr. Silber has gone from downing a 20-inch five-pound pie in less than an hour to owning the restaurant where he pulled off that feat.

Now called Pizza Party, the restaurant still offers the pizza challenge deal. You eat the giant pizza, you get a pizza a month for a year.

Interestingly enough, Pizza Party's former name, Pizza and Pipes, comes from the fact that it was part of a regional chain of pizza parlors that also had pipe organs. Yeah. The '70s was a weird decade.
