PHOENIX — This may just be the news you need to get out of that Monday funk: Famed Chicago pizzeria Gino’s East has officially opened the doors on its first Phoenix location.

Ten percent of Monday’s proceeds¬†will be donated to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

Gino‚Äôs East has locations in Texas, Wisconsin and ‚ÄĒ of course ‚ÄĒ all across the Chicago area. Founded in 1966, the restaurant says its claim to fame is letting customers leave graffiti on the restaurants‚Äô walls.

The Arizona location sits on the northeast corner of Indian School Road and 36th Street. The doors officially opened at 4 p.m.

It certainly won’t be the first staple of the Chicago culinary experience to make its way to the Valley: Chicago-style pizza restaurants, such as Lou Malnati’s and Giordano’s, have Phoenix-area locations.

Portillo’s, a hot-dog eatery, has locations in the Valley, too.

We want to hear from you.
