Ball Up All-Stars were in Kansas City and put on a high-flying exciting basketball game! The game was family friendly and there were children of all ages in attendance.  The fans were treated to thunder sticks & string backs at the door, shooting contest during the time outs, t-shirts thrown to the crowd and best of all a game full of the best dunks and fast pace ball!

Every game has a surprise NBA coach and Dennis Rodman was it! So cool, 5 time NBA Champ and so wonderfully weird! He was quiet, but so nice.  My son got to meet him and since he’s a kids who loves basketball, this was the best experience for him – EVER!  There were a ton of street ball legends in the house too, Bone Collector, AO, Sick Wit It and Skip to My Lou.  They really get the credit for starting the phenom that is street ball!

While in town, they have an open run and invite local street ball players to come out, showcase their skills and have a chance to play against the Ball Up Stars.  Visit www.ballup.com to see when they are coming to your town!

Taco Tuesdays with a TWIST! April 25, 2013

My family loves tacos and has them at least once a week.  I recently heard that Papa Murphy’s Take and Bake Pizza has a Taco Grande pizza for a limited time.  This past Tuesday, we picked up a beef and chicken Taco Grande pizza and a couple of Mini-Murph kits for my little ones to put a twist on our Taco Tuesdays.  The Mini-murph kits are personal size pizzas, that come with all the supplies that your kids need to make their own pizza…and they are only $3.oo! We also got a bucket of cookie dough for dessert. Dinner and dessert for a family of 5 for under $30 and it was hot and fresh out of the oven.

I was surprised at how much the pizza tasted like a taco, pleasantly surprised!  It really does taste like a taco and so much easier to eat than a traditional taco.  The large size pizza is $10 and I don’t know about you, but it cost me a lot more than $10.oo to make traditional homemade tacos, so at that price, it’s worth a taste test.  The Taco Grande pizza is only around for a limited time, so try it while you have a chance!

If you are in Lawrence, KS area, there is a new store and you have a chance to celebrate their grand opening!  The store is located on 650 Congressional Drive.  A grand opening celebration is set for May 2-4, featuring family friendly games, activities and giveaways. On Saturday, May 4, the first 100 people through the new Lawrence location will receive coupons for a free large pepperoni pizza (one per family) starting at 10 a.m.

I have always been a fan of Papa Murphy’s and turns out I’m in good company!

  • Papa Murphy’s also ranked #1 pizza chain in the 2013 Consumer Picks survey by Nation’s Restaurant News and WD Partners, a global strategy firm.
  • Papa Murphy’s ranked #3 overall, way ahead of all other pizza franchises, including Papa John’s (ranked 46), Pizza Hut (ranked 65), Domino’s (ranked 76) and Little Caesars (ranked 88).

Now, you can TWIST your Taco Tuesday too!
