*Tasty Tuesday is coming to you a day late due to some technical difficulties…
Today’s lunch plans were cancelled due to a long appointment this morning and Maybelle falling asleep on the way to the restaurant. This is not a child you wake up and expect any kind of cooperation from, so we just headed home. A.P. wanted “Chocko Loco Tacos”, which are simply home-made cheese quesadillas. Easy enough.
We did end up with a fairly Tasty Tuesday though. The dinner I had planned as well as our entire evening was switched around by something my husband had going on, so we ended up at a pizza place on 28th St near QDoba and Penzy’s Spices. They had guys standing outside with a sign my husband could not refuse: “XL PIZZA $6.00” It’s called New York Pizza, and it was ok. Definitely does not have anything on JB’s Pizza, but it’s fresh and inexpensive.
I have more Griffins News as well. This is especially good if you need to attend a McCarty Party before he goes back to the Red Wings.
There are a couple of ‘specials’ this weekend. First, there are $5 upper bowl and $10 lower bowl tickets available for the Saturday and Sunday games, but you have to get them online. Here is how:
1. Go to griffinshockey.com/themenights
2. Enter username: mccarty
3. Enter password: griffins
Sunday is also “Reading Day” with the Griffins. Kids 12 and under can dress as their favorite storybook character. Parents must register their children at griffinshockey.com/costumecontest by Thursday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m.
All current library card holders can get a 2-for-1 deal on tickets at the Van Andel Arena box office on game day (limit two complimentary tickets per card). There will also be face-painting, sign-making, balloons, and a bunch of other stuff. Go to Griffins Hockey for more information.
