During the winter months, Bessie keeps us warm with heated seats, adrenaline rushes and pizza. Our first adventure was to the Palermo’s Pizza Factory. Palermo’s makes frozen pizza for grocery stores. On our hour long tour, we watched a video while an enthusiastic employee took us through the history and inner workings of the Palermo’s Pizza empire. There wasn’t much touring, you do get to stare longingly at pizzas as they tumble on down the production lines and see the pepperonis dancing. After the tour, we all sat down to a fresh slice of Palermo’s pizza. After an hour of talk about pizza, it was about time we got to do some serious eating! Afterwards, our group decided to take in the flora at the Mitchell Park Domes and then have dessert at the Comet Cafe. Delicious cherry pie. Hmmmm. Our final adventure of the evening was with Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty at the Rosebud Cinema.
A month later… Bessie takes us to Crisp Pizza Bar & Lounge for dinner, thanks to Groupon. The atmosphere is very modern and dark, perfect for a getaway from a long work week. The brick-oven pizza was a delicious hand-tossed delight with pepperoni and sausage. I would love to go back and try some of their other creations. I insisted on taking my pizza-fatted friends for a pie of a different kind. We drove to Honey Pie Cafe to sample their delicious apple pie. They can make me dessert anytime!
