Couple Caught On Camera Copulating At Domino’s Counter May Face Jail Time

If your fantasy is to engage in all manner of sexual relations while waiting for your pizza order, just be aware that there may be repercussions for your public display of intimacy. Last February, CCTV cameras at a UK Domino’s captured 18 minutes of one couple’s in-store erotic escapades. The two recently pleaded guilty to outraging public decency, but The Sun reports that they could still end up behind bars. The magistrates at their trial last month watched the entire 18 minutes of footage, which shows them cavorting, romping, and otherwise getting it on while they wait for their order. Delivery personnel arrive and leave in the video, while kitchen workers appear to remain clueless as well. Their attorney told the court that the incident happened after a night of drinking, and that while yes, they had sex in public, the acts weren’t all that “brazen.” The couple will be sentenced today, with the chairwoman of the bench noting that a jail time won’t be ruled out.

Firefighters In Michigan Delivering Free Pizza To Folks With Working Smoke Alarms

Sure, we all put off certain household tasks like changing the battery in the smoke alarm — but what if you could score a free pizza just for keeping things in working order? Firefighters in Flint, MI, and about an hour north in Bangor Township (Bay County) have each teamed up with their local Domino’s stores, selecting random customers to have their pizzas delivered by firetruck. MLive.com notes that the promotion isn’t just about the sight of having your pie delivered on a big red fire engine; it’s also intended to promote fire safety practices. Firefighter pizza deliverers will check the smoke alarms in the houses they go to. If they’re in working order, the pizza is free. If they’re not, firefighters will install working alarms or switch out the batteries. But the pizza will cost you. For a chance at the free pie, order pizza from 5-7 p.m. Oct. 8-11 from the Domino’s at 4041 Euclid Ave. or from 5-8.pm at 2113 S. Ballenger Highway in Flint.

The data company Datafiniti set out to find out where the most expensive pizza was in the United States. They did so by combing the data and comparing the price of a large plain pizza at thousands of restaurants across the country. What they found was that by state, North Dakota has the most expensive pie with a median cost of $14.00. California ranked 14th with a median price of $11.85. As far as major cities went, at $14.79 Buffalo, NY was the most expensive, followed by Nashville at $14 and San Francisco at $13.99. For more pizza releated data science head over to Datafiniti.

One Of The Most Expensive Pizzas Costs $2,000, Topped With 24K Gold

CHICAGO (CBS) — If you thought Chicago had the richest tasting pizza, you might want to think again. Industry Kitchen, a New York American cuisine that typically focuses on favorites like salads, meats and pizzas, created a $2,000 pizza for those with expensive taste or those who want to splurge a bit. “It is the epitome of decadence,” Industry Kitchen executive chef Braulio Bunay told Town and Country, explaining he was inspired by the nearby Financial District. “The pizza is extremely rich—if you’re in the mood for a lavish meal, this is the pizza for you.” Chef Bunay continued saying by preparing such an expensive dish in “the form of pizza, makes it more approachable.” (Umm sure let me just spend a couple grand on a pizza, no big deal). Instagram Photo The pizza includes Stilton cheese, foie gras (liver of a fattened duck), French truffles, platinum Ossetra caviar, and sheets of 24k gold leaves and flakes. In addition to all of that, the crust of the pizza is infused with black squid ink, plus edible flowers garnished on top. “The people get in shock because they never see in one dish all these special ingredients,” Bunay told Insider. “It’s very expensive and it’s delicious.” Instagram Photo Again, the pizza rings in at $2,000. Therefore, if you do the math and the pizza is cut this into eight pieces, that would make each slice cost $250 and each bite cost about $50, depending on the amount of bites you take. And if you are considering purchasing the decadent pizza, Industry Kitchen asks patrons to give them a two-day notice. Instagram Photo And the name of this expensive pizza? Well we’ve heard a song about 24K Magic, so fittingly the wood-fired, thin-crust pizza topped with gold claims the title, 24K Pizza. But before the Bruno Mars album was released and the 24K Pizza was served, other chefs started using gold as a way to raise the bar of everyday foods, such as ice cream sundaes, donuts, bagels and more.

Tinder Hearth

Tinder Hearth - Brooksville, Maine on Map & Menu Feasting on wood-fired pizza on a summer night at Tinder Hearth has been near the top of our restaurant bucket list for ages, but the drive to Brooksville is just far enough that a day trip never seemed quite doable. This summer, however, we made a point to time our visit to Brooksville to see our friends from North Carolina with Tinder Hearth’s hours, which resulted in one of the most memorable evenings of our entire summer! The relaxed atmosphere of Tinder Hearth, with its winding paths to hidden picnic tables and happy diners drinking wine from water glasses, is all part of the restaurant’s charm and certainly adds to the overall experience, but don’t let the idyllic setting distract you from the outstanding pizza. Together, we all sampled each of the night’s three pizzas – the meat, the cheese, and the veggie – and none of us, even the little ones, could settle on a favorite while devouring all three pies. As if an evening spent outside with good friends, delicious pizza, and free flowing wine wasn’t enough, we topped it off with a pair of Tinder Hearth’s homemade chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwiches. It didn’t take long for us to decide that a meal at Tinder Hearth would be a mandatory summer requirement going forward – especially since we have such a perfect excuse to visit Brooksville each summer when the Terhune family comes to Maine.

Dominos Testing Pizza Delivery In Driverless Cars

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — No ring of the doorbell, just a text. No tip for the driver? No problem in this test, where Domino’s and Ford are teaming up to see if customers will warm to the idea of pizza delivered by driverless cars. Starting Wednesday, some pizzas in Domino’s hometown of Ann Arbor will arrive in a Ford Fusion outfitted with radars and a camera that is used for autonomous testing. A Ford engineer will be at the wheel, but the front windows have been blacked out so customers won’t interact with the driver. Instead, people will have to come out of their homes and type a four-digit code into a keypad mounted on the car. That will open the rear window and let customers retrieve their order from a heated compartment. The compartment can carry up to four pizzas and five sides, Domino’s Pizza Inc. says. The experiment will help Domino’s understand how customers will interact with a self-driving car, says company President Russell Weiner. Will they want the car in their driveway or by the curb? Will they understand how to use the keypad? Will they come outside if it’s raining or snowing? Will they put their pizza boxes on top of the car and threaten to mess up its expensive cameras? “The majority of our questions are about the last 50 feet of the delivery experience,” Weiner told reporters last week. Domino’s, which delivers 1 billion pizzas worldwide each year, needs to stay ahead of emerging trends, Weiner says. The test will last six weeks, and the companies say they’ll decide afterward what to do next. Domino’s is also testing pizza delivery with drones. Weiner said the company has 100,000 drivers in the U.S. In a driverless world, he said, he could see those employees taking on different roles within the company. Ford Motor Co., which wants to develop a fully driverless vehicle by 2021, said it needs to understand the kinds of things companies would use that vehicle for. The experiment is a first for Ford. But other companies have seen the potential for food deliveries. Otto, a startup backed by Uber, delivered 50,000 cans of Budweiser beer from a self-driving truck in Colorado last fall. “We’re developing a self-driving car not just for the sake of technology,” said Sherif Marakby, Ford’s vice president of autonomous and electric vehicles. “There are so many practical things that we need to learn.” Only one car will be deployed in Ann Arbor, and it has a special black-and-white paint job to identify it as a research vehicle. Customers in the test area will be chosen randomly when they order a pizza, and will get a phone call to confirm they want to participate. If they agree, they’ll get a text message letting them know when the vehicle is pulling up and how to retrieve their food.

Domino’s Self-Driving Delivery Cars Means Having To Retrieve Pizza Yourself

Maybe you’re not ready to hop into a driverless taxi cab, but what about having your pizza delivered by a self-driving car? Domino’s and Ford have partnered for a test in the Michigan city of Ann Arbor, intended to gauge just how interested customers might be in having their pizza brought to their house by an autonomous delivery vehicle. One hitch: Getting your pizza via one of these robot cars is going to require a little more work from you than if you just had a human driver bring the pizza to your door.

Get It Yourself

Under the test, randomly selected customers will have their pizza delivered by a Ford Fusion Autonomous Research vehicle. After the order is placed, customers will be able to track the delivery vehicle through GPS using an upgraded version of Domino’s Tracker. They’ll then receive a text message when the car arrives. At that point, customers will have to walk to the car, punch in a special code, and retrieve their pizza themselves. Sure, delivery by self-driving car likely means you won’t have to tip the driver, but it also suggests you’ll probably have to put on pants in order to get your hands on your pizza.

Not Self-Driving, Yet

Alas, the new Domino’s/Ford delivery car won’t be driving up and down your street completely alone just yet. For now, the companies note that a Ford safety manager will actually be behind the wheel, but don’t expect this person to bring your pizza to the door. The entire point of the tests is to gauge whether or not customers are willing to put in the work to retrieve their pizzas themselves. “We’re interested to learn what people think about this type of delivery,” Russell Weiner, president of Domino’s USA, said in a statement. “The majority of our questions are about the last 50 feet of the delivery experience.” The company notes that the research and delivery tests are meant to ensure that one day in the future, the pizza chain can offer customers seamless, friendly driverless deliveries. For Ford, the tests aren’t about getting people piping hot pizzas; instead, the partnership should help them determine just how useful driverless cars will be. Before the carmaker can start its planned production of self-driving vehicles in 2021, it first needs to find out just how commercially viable those cars are, and how they can, and may, be used.
