LINCOLN PARK—Homeslice owner Josh Iachelli continues to get creative at his pizzeria. After launching brunch with dishes like "hangover cereal" with Fireball whiskey and RumChata, Iachelli has customized a 1969 Airstream trailer and turned it into a heated lounge. Part of a new 50-seat enclosed seating area, the Airstream itself seats 20, is available for private parties, and the full menu is available inside it. [EaterWire]
