Hanging my head Fri, 10/23/09 12:52 AM (permalink)
I needed to feed a bunch of kids the other night. So I bought several lg pizzas from Domino's at 5.99 each. They are running a single topping with extra cheese for 5.99 special.
 
I actually liked the pizza.

    I'd sure hang my head if I were you.

      In college we practically lived on Domino's, since they were the only ones that delivered to the dorms.  I don't think I have eaten one since and there is one only ten minutes from my house.

        Liked it in general or liked something specific about it?
         
        I think I last had Domino's sometime in the 1990s and it didn't match my college memories from the '80s, so either the pizza changed or I did.

          I don't even remember Domino's being around when I started college, at least we didn't have any near me. We had a couple mom and pop places right next door to each other that I wouldn't have strayed from even if Domino's was available.

          I hadn't even had Domino's in over ten years, then a couple months ago I ordered a meat lover's (or whatever they call it) pizza, and when I took the first slice out, all the sausage rolled off of it like dog food kibble. It was the only slice I ate. Next time I get nostalgic for something, I might just have to let it go.

            Our Domino's is long gone, but heck if you were feeding a bunch of kids that was a good deal.  And, if you liked it, you liked it. 
             
            I will say I don't miss the Domino's pizza but it's been years since I've had it.

              I would order Domino's after coming home on the Coast Starlight after midnight and I loved it.  I think it was psychological since I was usually travelling during the holidays or vacation during college.  Now I can't stand it.

                I get Domino's too for kid sleep overs.  The price is right for a sleep over of 8x 10 year olds, and they could care less.  The straight up pepperoni isn't too bad, especially with a few brews.

                  What kind of beer do the kids like?

                      Give 'em some Dogfish Head and you can probably get by with frozen pizza.

                            Doghead has no distribution up here in the northern tundra, nor does practically anything else of flavor.  On my trips out of state I usually bring back 2-3 cases of mixed micro-brews and Belgians to tide me over the next 4-6 months.  You can go to the liquor store up here and I swear 99% of the beer shelf is  "__insert-brand-name-here__ Lite."
                             
                            Edit: By tide me over, I mean myself, the wife, and leeching friends.

                              Wow WarToad. I checked The Beeradvocate site for North Dakota, and you really are hurting up there. Not a single microbrewery in the entire state, and the only brewpub in the state is Granite City, and they are awful.

                              This has to be particularly hard for you, as if I remember correctly you used to live in Washington State, home to more than a few good brews.

                                Tell me about it.  Living in Seattle I was spoiled on some of the best west coast and rocky mtn micro-brews available.  And thats a LOT.

                                Fortunately I've home brewed for a good 17 years.  I've gotten back into that big time to get the flavors I like.  Still.  Miss my Rogue, Full Sail, Stone, Alaskan, and a plethora of all the others. 

                                That and I had The Tap House just 3 blocks from my apt.

                                http://www.taphousegrill.com/beer.html

                                160 beers on tap.  Maybe it's a good thing for my liver I moved.
