Co-owners Clay Moizo, director of operations, and Laura Fettig, director of purchasing, are "Chicago born, Arizona bred," and decided along with Arizona native Don Talbot, director of design and concept development, to remodel in 2013 after 10 years in business and add the Windy City theme. The bar closed Aug. 17, 2013, and re-opened Aug. 29.

While she did not share any secret ingredients, Chef Marlene Portillo showed 3TV's Kaley O'Kelley and Javier Soto how to properly make Half Moon's signature Chicago-style cracker-thin pizza crust.
