Granted I'm a transplant here, but don't almost all real Ill-annoyins share a wholesome, deep-seated affection for pizza and Cheap Trick? So what could be better than having Rick Nielsen deliver five large pizzas to your house and hang out with you and your friends for pictures and autographs? All this can be yours for a considerable sum of money that will go to benefit PAWS Chicago, the city's largest no-kill humane organization. The pizza comes from Piece Brewery and Pizzeria, natch (Nielsen is an investor), and the rock-star delivery offer is valid within 40 miles of its address (1923 W. North Avenue). Rules and conditions are here. The ten-day auction began on June 13 and will run until Monday, June 23. At last look the high bid was $415.
