In the spirit of the season, H-Town Chow Down reveals an act of kindness by a Woodlands pizza parlor owner to a new potential competitor in the area. The new Chicago-style pizzeria, Gino's East (25657 I-45), was almost unable to open when their dough mixer broke down. RC Gallegos, owner of nearby RC's NYC Pizza (501 Sawdust), stepped in and saved the day by lending them his. He additionally connected Gino's to local repairmen so they could get their mixer fixed. It is this kind of cooperation that makes Houstonians fiercely proud of our food community. Besides, we're plenty big enough to support both Chicago-style and New York-style pizza, aren't we gang?
