Finally A Good Reward Program

So finally a story about shopping with a tremendous benefit. Yesterday I went to AMA to renew my car registration and of course, I was also aware of some traffic tickets that would have to be paid. Total damage in fines, $418 (including processing of tickets). However, because this Devilishly Handsome Padrino shops so much at the Italian Centre Shop and utilize my AMA Rewards card every time I go there, I racked up $308 in rewards dollars. Those dollars quickly went to cover most of my tickets. See, shopping at the Italian Centre Shop can be very beneficial. So take from this what you want….It’s September first and guess what’s back? That’s right the Nonna Rosa Chicken Soup. A nice big pot will be ready to go. See you at noon.

See Ya Summer

So ya, just like that we are staring down the end of the “summer” days as it were. Kids pretty much all go back to school next week, it’s the last weekend of August; where did it all go? Oh well, next week brings other good things. The soups are coming back to the menu and I too will resume exploiting gourds and be working on the Pumpkin Spice Cannoli. As well we will be trying hard as ever to bring Shemar Moore in for lunch before the end of the year. We’ll see how that while thing plays out. Surely someone must know someone that works with someone that knows someone that has a friend that has a relative that could put in a call to another person, that could reach out to Shemar and let him know about the invite. Ok, really need to get lunch on the go. See you all at noon.

No Direction

Awwww you parents out there with teen aged daughters must be really wiped today. After all, no doubt you were up late consoling your kid after the news of One Direction kind of breaking up. Okay they didn’t officially break up, let’s call it a trial separation. But ya, they’re done. One Direction didn’t even think about the impact this has on you. They don’t care that you have to now spend hours mending the broken heart of your daughter, assuring her that someday, some where, an even better boy band with even better hair and choreographed dance moves will  certainly inform her of how beautiful she is and what other positive messages and stuff One Direction was spewing at them in their honey and white sugar laced lyrics. But what about you mom & dad? What of your needs? Well, I can offer you this lots of coffee. Coffee in the form of Espresso and Lattes, Cappuccino too. Even just good old school brewed. Not only that, but a pretty solid lunch menu today as well. Check it out below. See you at noon.
