For residents of Sturgis, there's been a staple location to grab a slice over the past 39 years at Mike's Pizza & Subs which will soon close its doors for reasons beyond their control, as they've announced Friday, July 15th will be the final time they heat the ovens up at their location at 112 West Chicago road.
In 1959, Mike and Marian Ilitch opened the first Little Caesars – which also featured spaghetti, shrimp, chicken, and fish - in a strip mall at 32594 Cherry Hill Road, in Garden City, Michigan (a suburb of Detroit). Mike wanted to call it “Pizza Cheap”, but “Little Caesars Pizza Treat” suggestion won out as the first name.
You and one other person have a 60 minute time limit to eat an entire 28" one-topping pizza (roughly 42 slices ranging in size) and down 2 large drinks with no ice. the kicker is that you're not allowed to leave the table, stand up or throw up, otherwise you lose the challenge. Any team who beats it gets awarded $300.
What do you do when you want to get some take-out, but there are no restaurants open in winter, no stores open, and no ferry services until May? Apparently there is a private plane charter that will deliver food for you
