President Obama’s $1 Million Pizza Party In Detroit!
Detroit CBS ^ | 4/8/12 | Carol Cain

Posted on 04/09/2012 10:24:06 AM PDT by Nachum

President Barack Obama is coming to the Motor City for a $1 million pizza party being thrown for him compliments of Denise Ilitch, daughter of Little Caesars’ founders Mike and Marian Ilitch. Ilitch is opening her home April 18 for the fundraiser where movers and shakers are being asked to pony up thousands to add to his re-election coffer while getting a chance to rub shoulders with the most powerful man on the planet. “I’m honored to have been asked,” by the Obama campaign to host,” Ilitch said of the event she and husband, Jim Scalici, will hold at their Metro Detroit home. She made the comments on “Michigan Matters” when asked about media reports.

When asked what she planned to serve, she said: “Pizza! But, we’ll be serving it on sterling silver plates!”

The price of admission isn’t for those on a budget. $40,000 buys access to the cocktail reception, formal photo with Obama and dinner. $10,000 buys dinner and a photo.

They’d better count the silver plates after King Barry and his entourage departs.

I’ve been wanting to try birch beer. It’s supposed to be healthy and stuff. :-) I don’t think we can get it here in Oklahoma, though.

Now we know what the “Red” in the Red Wings really stands for.

No more supporting Illitch enterprises.

Papa John’s (from what I heard anyway) started either in Louisville, or across the river in Indiana. LC and Domino’s, you got right on the money.

OBVIOUSLY, not in DOWNTOWN DEETROIT....or they’d be serving KFC, Colt 45 in quart bottles, and watermelon.

Birch Beer is like crack to me. It’s non-alcoholic like root beer. The best I’ve ever had is from the Menonites in PA. The stuff you can make from extract isn’t quite as good as the Menonites make, but it is by far the best I can get in Nevada. If you have a brewers supply store nearby, they most likely have the extract to make it, as well as regular root beer, and sarsparilla. Making it from extract is easy, and only requires bottles. It self carbonates.

I was wondering how many are company stores vs franchise. Usually make my own Pizza, but maybe once a month we pick up a couple. The Hot and Ready still $5.00 in Tampa but last time we were in Michigan they were a were a little more. I am not giving them up. We like them and they are better than other fast food.
