Luigi’s is an Akron institution which features a giant pizza made by PR “Grizzled Wizard” Miller on the outside. Luigi’s is also known for a 1949 Mechanical Bandbox above the front door that comes to life when the jukebox is played. Or did anyway, until it jammed up, and wouldn’t start without a repairman. We ate heartily nonetheless, and gazed up at the nearby building which Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders calls home, then discussed how hard it was going to be to shoot Akron’s Y Bridge without a chopper. (We didn’t.)
