UBER offers 2 FREE Rides for NEW Michigan riders to encourage Holiday responsible drinking

“This Wednesday is our busiest night of the year, and the Royal Oak Police Department will have a lot of extra patrol officers out with a focus on keeping drunk drivers off the road.”

Uber is teaming with the Royal Oak Police Department and offering two FREE rides in Michigan to NEW users to encourage responsible drinking.

Share the code SAFERIDESMI with your friends, family, and social circle. Ride knowing you are pledging to make the smart choice in Michigan this Thanksgiving season.

Pie Five: Delicious Custom Hand-Crafted Pizza in only 5 minutes in Southfield, MI

Pie Five is now my son's favorite Pizza Joint...

Back in October my son and I were invited to attend a blogger preview event at a new pizza restaurant in Southfield, MI called Pie Five.  Until the night of the event, I did not know much about Pie Five and went to the event just hoping that my picky-eating son would find something on the menu worth eating.  Now five weeks after the event, Pie Five has become my son's favorite pizza joint which he tries to get me to take him to every chance he can.

The concept of Pie Five is very different from most pizza places. Pie Five makes custom hand crafted personal pizzas in just 5 minutes for $6.99 per pizza - think Subway but for pizza.

The dough is made fresh every day, throughout the day and the ingredients are all-natural, preservative free.  You can choose a pizza combo from the menu and customize it or concoct your own masterpiece from scratch.  And no matter what you choose to put on the pizza, and cost does not change.

You place your order and stand in line while the staff makes the pies and then puts it in the oven.  Five minutes later, you pizza is ready to eat.

There is a Pizza for Everyone...

The night of the blogger event, my son and I received complimentary samples (plus our own indivdual complimentary pizzas) of many of the menu items,  including:

Chicken Carbonara with Artisan Thin Crust
alfredo sauce / parmesan / grilled chicken / mushrooms / crushed red pepper / bacon

Pesto Chicken Alfredo with Artisan Thin Crust
alfredo sauce / grilled chicken / roasted tomatoes / caramelized onions / basil drizzle

Athenian with Artisan Thin Crust
olive oil / feta / grilled chicken / minced garlic / banana peppers / red onions / basil / kalamata olives / sun-dried tomato purée

Buffalo Chicken with Artisan Thin Crust
buffalo ranch sauce / cheddar / banana peppers / grilled chicken

High Five with Classic Pan Crust
tuscan marinara / cheddar / pepperoni / italian sausage / bacon / ham / beef

Margherita with Artisan Thin Crust
olive oil / roma tomatoes / minced garlic / basil

Pie Five also sells salads and for those with a sweet tooth, Pie Five also has cookie pies (part cookie, part pie) and brownies.

My son and I both loved the pizzas with the Artisan Thin Crust.  My favorite is the Chicken Carbonara.  I love the tender grilled chicken and bacon with the Alfredo sauce. My son's favorite is the Margherita which I could not believe since it has NO meat.


I think everyone knows how much I love a bargain.  So I was very glad when I found out the Southfield Pie Five location has a HAPPY HOUR from 2-6pm, Monday thru Thursday where pies are only $5 each - HOLLA!!!!

Get 10% off Your Next Pie Five visit by taking a Survey...

Everyone can also save money by looking at the bottom of your receipt where you will find the opportunity to take an online survey which will get you 10% off your next visit if you go back to Pie Five within 30 days of taking the survey.

Join the CIRCLE OF CRUST and get a 
FREE PIZZA and more...

I love being part of rewards programs and the rewards program at Pie Five is called the "Circle of Crust". In the Circle, you’ll earn points for every pizza or large salad you purchase. You’ll also get invited to exclusive events and tastings, and surprise points offers. And on your HALF-birthday, you earn a FREE PIE!!!

Over the last few weeks, Pie Five has become one of our favorite places to eat out in Southfield. Hopefully more locations will open in other cities in Metro Detroit.

REVIEW: #RinglingBros "Legends" at the Palace of Auburn Hills - #RinglingLEGENDS

Ringling Bros. Legends show thrills from beginning to end...

On Wednesday night, my son and I were the guests of Feld Entertainment for opening night of the Ringling Bros. "Legends" show at the Palace of Auburn Hills.  Every year I wonder how Ringling Bros. can top the show from the previous year, and some how they to manage to make it bigger and better each time.

This year's show was exciting from beginning to end.  We loved everything from the animal acts to the clowns to the motorcycles in the steel cage of death.  The show was very beautiful with big screens that blended with the acts and costumes that shined all the way up to the top of the arena.

This year there was also a lot of information given about the elephants - their day to day schedule, how they are cared for, what the eat, and even how they sleep.

My favorite act every year is the Steel Cage of Death.  I have no idea how the motorcyclists do what they do and never get hurt.  (see my instagram video above or follow me on instagram at

And the aerialists had everyone on the edge of their seats when they performed 4 triple somersaults in a row.  (see my instagram video above or follow me on instagram at
