Welcoming Caricature at Mad Mushroom Pizzeria

I was absolutely amazed when I discovered that a World Champion was almost in my back yard at the Mad Mushroom Pizzeria in West Lafayette, Indiana.  So it didn’t take us long to contact him.

Mad Mushroom Pizzeria is located adjacent the West Lafayette Indiana Purdue University  Campus where 40,000 students and avid pizza eaters reside. So the hours on Thurs thru Saturday are from 10:00AM to 3:30AM.  Some students are up late night studying or partying and they have to have their pizza now!
