A Chamber at Boston Pizza

Visited Boston Pizza (8 First Commerce Drive, Aurora) on Tuesday for the Aurora Chamber of Commerce's Pub Night.  

I arrived shortly after 5:30 P.M. to find the main bar area to be somewhat populated by local business owners.  I sat down with a coworker for some beers and pizza.

The Order: Medium Tropical Chicken Pizza and pair of Coors Light beers.

There was one bartender with waitresses appearing periodically who were visiting from the main restaurant area and then dissappearing. There really could have been a set waitress for the chamber event instead of leaving the bar tender to fend for herself.  One would think with close to 80 local business owners coming and going, there would have been money for a night out there with fellow area business owners to talk and enjoy some Boston Pizza fare.  

The only thing the Aurora Chamber of Commerce provided was a cheese pizza for nibbles and a few napkins.  Considering the event was free admission, not much food should be expected.  This is unlike the Chamber's networking breakfast where an admission fee is levied and a buffet breakfast is offered. 

Our pizza arrived within fifteen minutes and we ate it. The pizza was decent, but nothing to write home about.  The pizza had too much cheese but at least was not overloaded in pineapple or other tropical fruit.

Just as we were finishing our meal, the mayor of Aurora, Geoff Dawe, stopped by to see how we were doing and what our business, Curb Signs Inc. was doing and what we were about.

Overall, it was a great evening of meeting business owners and others from the area with a little bit of food as well.
