Valentine’s Datenight Guide
Ok, maybe that isn’t how it goes, but I need to shed some light on a pizza event I attended this past Monday. #HoustonPizzaFiesta! I learned so much and I won’t lie: Domino’s hasn’t always been my first choice for Friday night pizza delivery. But after trying out their new menu items and seeing the direction they are going in, Domino’s will be part of my Friday nights in!
Domino’s is changing up and remodeling many of their locations in Houston and around the nation. They are changing it to a “Theater style” restaurant. They are making it an experience, kid/family friendly, and they are putting on a show for their guest! You can have your little one step up on their “Young Pizza Inspector” steps and they can watch the Domino’s experts make their pizzas! Sometimes they even throw dough out and let the guest catch it. They have charging stations all around their walls so you can get work/homework done while enjoying one of their new menu items.
Domino’s impressed me with their new menu items. Their Domino’s marbled cookie brownie was TO DIE FOR. They don’t only have pizza but they also have sandwiches, salads, desserts, and pasta! No matter if you are a picky eater or you can eat anything, there is something on the menu for everyone in the family.
They are also stepping up their game with their deliveries. They have a tracker on their apps and websites so you can better track your pizza. Domino’s wanted to make it easier for their customers to be able to order food no matter where they were. They now have “Hotspots.” Hotspots are locations that may not have physical addresses but are popular (parks, venues, hospitals). Instead of trying to scramble around for an address, you can meet your Domino’s delivery guy/girl at the designated Hotspot!
I had the opportunity to build my own pizza and it is not as easy as it looks. I learned so much about their growth and how they want to make their customers happy. They are about to hit their peak time and are currently hiring 500 drivers and 100+ assistant managers. (Drivers get paid mileage and tips on the same day of their shift). You can look for job opportunities on the link below!
Thank you Domino’s for inviting me to your #Houstonpizzafiesta you did not disappoint!

We take baseball serious here in the south!
This past week I had the opportunity to check out The Cage before its grand opening. My son Elijah has been playing baseball for 5 years and I am definitely one of "those baseball moms" When Jennifer (the owner) asked me to check it out I was thrilled. The first thing that I noticed when I got there was this awesome mural that was painted by local artist, Franky Cardona. Not only was the mural very well created but HELLO, it's the ASTROS! If that isn't encouragement enough, I don't know what is.
The Cage is family owned and it is located in the Heights. It's a central location for people around Houston. It's physical address is, 6504 N. Main Street, Houston 77009. The heights is growing and they are developing a lot around the area. When driving down main, make sure to slow down because if you are not paying attention, chances are you will pass it up, and trust me, YOU DO NOT want to pass up this awesome baseball facility.
THE IRON MIKE PITCHING MACHINE
In order to get the best out of a batting session, you want to have the best equipment and The Cage did not disappoint with their pitching machine. It's not JUST a pitching machine, it's an Iron Mike and many batting cages don't have these. This machine has an arm style pitch and coaches and baseball players prefer this kinda of machine. When batting you want persistence, accuracy, and you want to every swing to be the greatest swing you have taken. The Cage has the equipment and the training for that.
DETAILS ABOUT THE CAGE
The Cage will offer various ways of utilizing their space and services. They will have memberships, hourly rates, team rates, and one on one training. They offer machine pitch and live pitch. They will have trained professionals to get your child or team exactly where they want to be. In the hour and a half that Elijah and I were there, Eli had already improved on his catching and his form. I was really impressed with the one on one we had because in other batting cages we usually just have machine pitch and that's about it. At The Cage we had someone watching Elijah and getting a feel of what level he was at and how to improve and what needed to be fixed. The Cage will be open to the public and hours will be posted on their social media channels soon; as well as our website which is set to go live on May 14!
A LITTLE ABOUT THE OWNERS
It is safe to say that The Cage is definitely what I look for in an indoor batting cage and baseball facility. The Cage is having their grand opening, Monday, May 14th! They will have a ribbon cutting ceremony right at 4pm. I highly encourage everyone to stop by Saturday, May 5th as the new facility will be hosting tours every half hour from noon to 6 p.m.
Thank you to The Cage for allowing me to check out the facility and have that one on one training! I cannot wait to return and have Elijah get those swings in!
