Does Ordering Di Fara on Facebook Really Work?

Last week, Chicago food writer Michael Nagrant emailed me asking for some tips on scoring a Di Fara pizza in as little time as possible. "Haha, buddy," I said.

Yeah, I know, the college kids have been way into it for a while, and I kinda feel like an old fart on it, but I figured I'd start a Slice group on there for the hell of it.
