Win Dinner For Your Family From Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria

**This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Amy for winning dinner for her family!**

Giveaway

One of the many things I love about my job is getting to meet fabulous business owners. Today I’d love to introduce you to Richard & Bridgette Stanley. They own the new Chicago style/New York style pizzeria, Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria. This new gem in Forsyth County is family owned and operated right at the corner of Kelly Mill and Bethleview (in the same shopping center as Rucker Pet & Footprints.)

The menu at Luca Brasi’s includes pizza (Chicago style deep dish & New York style hand tossed) as well as a variety of other delicious pizzeria type foods (like calzones, salad, and strombolis). As I spent time with Richard, a few things he said stuck out to me. First, he really loves his job. Second, his food is authentic and fresh. And last but not least, customer service is very important to him. If you haven’t had an opportunity to check out Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria, I highly recommend you order pizza ASAP!

Fresh Ingredients

“We use only the best and freshest ingredients. That means hand dicing our vegetables daily, making our sauce and crust from scratch daily, purchasing our Italian Sausage locally at Sprouts, and using Boars Head meats and Grande mozzarella cheese. We are truly passionate about making the best pizza you’ve ever had.” -Richard Stanley, owner of Luca Brasi’s

I have already ordered several times and you really can taste the freshness and the love that goes into the food. I’m gluten and dairy free and I was thrilled to see they offer a gluten free crust. Disclosure: Of course, there is a chance for cross contamination at a pizzeria. I prefer to say they are “gluten friendly.” 

Weekday Carryout Special

We have taken advantage of this deal a few times already. It sure comes in handy during a busy week.

Buy one pizza, get the 2nd for 1/2 off!

{Offer valid Monday through Thursday only. Be sure to mention the coupon when you pick up the pizza. Discount applies to the equal or lower priced pizza. One discount per customer per visit.}

Insider Information

Y’all know I’m all about sharing the insider information!

Here is some insider scoop about Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria: Soon you will be able to dine in at Luca Brasi’s! They are working on installing the booths now and they have applied for their alcohol permit. The goal is to have dine in available in the next month or so. I will definitely keep you updated!

Also, I’ve been told that soon they will be adding Pittsburgh style sandwiches to their menu. If you don’t know what kind of sandwich that is. Let me enlighten you! It’s basically Italian bread layered with meat (Pastrami or Roast Beef), cheese, fries & coleslaw. YUM!

Giveaway

Now to what you were really looking for – instructions on how to enter to win a family dinner from Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria!

You are entering to win a large specialty pizza, large cheese pizza, and salad for your family to share. Good luck! A random winner will be chosen on Wednesday, July 5th.

More About Luca Brasi’s Pizzeria:

Richard Stanley started making pizzas for friends, parties and school events in the early 90’s. His pizza was always a hit. In fact, people would constantly tell him that he should open up a pizza joint of his own. Back then, his life was devoted to being a father to five amazing kids. Now that his kids have grown up, he has put all his passion and energy into Luca Brasi’s. It is his calling. Luca Brasi’s opened in January 2017 and has been serving up authentic Chicago style deep dish and New York style hand-tossed pizza to Forsyth County as carryout or delivery.

Introducing The New Owner of Cumming Local

Meet the Walkup family!

My name is Rachael Walkup. And I’m so excited to be the new owner of Cumming Local. Personally, I have loved this online resource since it was first launched on November 18, 2010. I have used Cumming Local to find family friendly things to do, places to go, and businesses to support here in Forsyth County. And from 2013-2014, I was a contributing writer for the blog. As you can see, I have always been a big believer in the website 🙂

Ok I’m sure you want to know about me and my family. I have lived in Forsyth County since 2000. My husband and I built our first home here in 2006. Greg, my husband, has been a teacher in Forsyth County for 10 years. He has taught at Vickery Creek Elementary, Kelly Mill Elementary, and is currently a Forsyth Central Bulldog. Together we have a 6 year old boy, Finn and a 3 year old girl, Selah. Finn is in kindergarten at Sawnee Elementary and Selah is in a 3k class at First Baptist Cumming.

We love living in Forsyth County for so many reasons. We love the parks, the schools, the country feel, and the city feel. We love that you can basically get anywhere you need to go in 15 minutes or so. But ultimately it’s the people and relationships that we have built here that we love most. I have to say that we fell into a deeper love with Forsyth in 2013 when we lost our home and belongings to a house fire. It was amazing to see how the community rallied around us and just truly loved on us. We will always be grateful for that.

So that’s my family and this wonderful community. But let me tell you about me. I actually grew up in Marietta, GA. I am a Sprayberry High School graduate. And I majored in Business Entrepreneurship at Reinhardt University in Waleska, GA. My professional background has included sales, advertising, product development, and social media marketing.

McDonald’s Mighty Wings:

We recently polled our Facebook Fans to find out the best places in Cumming & Forsyth County to order some wings.  Well now, there’s a new place to try – you know, when that craving hits and you need to run through a quick drive thru.  McDonald’s is back with their Mighty Wings.

McDonald Mighty Wings

The Mighty Wings were originally introduced in Atlanta last summer, but it was just a test.  Atlanta was actually the ONLY market in the US that tested them.  Pausing there to think, that’s pretty cool!  Now it’s on the menu nationwide!  So if you tried them last summer & liked them, then you’ll be happy about this.  If you missed out on trying them … now you have the chance!

Go for sauce or no sauce – you have Creamy Ranch, Spicy Buffalo or Tangy BarBeQue to choose from.  And get just a few as a snack or choose more and make it a meal – the wings come in 3, 5 or 10  piece.

And because I know nutrition and labels are always important, don’t forget they make it easy for you.

Nutrition Information at McDonald’s

  • McDonald’s nutrition information for food and beverage choices can be found on www.mcdonalds.com, McDonald’s mobile app, toll-free customer experience and insights line, in-restaurant brochures, reverse side of tray liners and select menu packaging.
  • You can also use the online tool My Meal Builder at www.mcdonalds.com to mix and match food and beverage choices view nutrition and ingredient information for customized menu choices.

Giveaway

Want to try the Mighty Wings – for FREE??  I’ve got wings to give away (well actually just cards that let you go get wings yourself) for THREE lucky winners!!

And the entry process is an easy one for Cumming Local readers!

To Enter: Simply leave a comment on this post below & let us know how you’d have your wings – no sauce, with ranch, spicy buffalo, or tangy BBQ  {Told you it was easy!!}

More About Moe’s Catering:

Moes_Catering

And this isn’t just some dinky little catering thing!!  They recently catered an event for me and it was AWESOME!!  I am a big Moe’s fan and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with being on some panel!  I have always been a fan of their food and their fun, easy environment.  And I’m also a huge fan of their catering too!!  Everything about it was so easy.  I made my decisions, placed the order, and then everything else was taken care of.

All I needed to provide was a long table to place everything on.  Everything else?  Taken care of.  Plates, Napkins, Cups, all the toppings, HOT food, and chips & salsa with every order!

We decided on the Fajita Bar which is perfect for a “mixed-crowed” in my opinion because everyone can make it how they want.  Our guests could make fajitas, nachos, salads and of course my daughter just ate the chicken by itself – tons of options & tons of variety!

Moe’s Can Cater for You Too:

Sponsor Spotlight: Offer & Giveaway from local Scentsy Consultant

UPDATE:  This giveaway is now closed.  Thank you to all that entered & congratulations to Joy N., selected via Random.org and notified via email.  Don’t forget to take advantage of the specials offered by Ashley, described below. 

This post and giveaway is sponsored by local Scentsy Independent Consultant Ashley Jansen – for which we are very thankful.  You will find more about the sponsorship relationship below. scentsy

Sponsor Spotlight:  Offer & Giveaway from local Scentsy Consultant

Have you become familiar with Scentsy yet? If you have, then you’ll know what great products they have and I bet you’ll be pretty excited about this special offer and giveaway from Independent Consultant Ashley Jansen. And if you’re not, then you’re totally missing out & need to tune in now!

Ashley helped co-sponsor our May Girl’s Night Out Event and today she’s back with a special offer for ALL of our Cumming Local readers and a giveaway for one lucky reader!  She was gracious enough to provide me with a Scentsy warmer recently and I have been enjoying it ever sense! I chose this one because I just love that turquoise and brown combination right now.

There are several things I have come to love about my Scentsy warmer – I love that there is no open flame, I love that the light bulb (what actually melts the scent) makes for a beautiful reflection against the wall – especially at night, and I love how pretty the warmer is in person (I love it more in person than I did in the catalog)!    You can honestly find a warmer to fit almost any occasion or personal style!

I also love the insane amount of scents available!!  I am pretty picky when it comes to smells so it’s hard for me to find things I like – so many things give me a headache.  I can not do anything floral or even that “fresh clean” scent is too much for me sometimes.  But things like Baked Apple Pie, Cucumber Lime, and Strawberry are right up my alley!!  They even have a “Man’s Line”!  Even eliminating the scents that I typically don’t like I was left with PLENTY of choices for scents I did like!  I finally asked Ashley to just pick out two of her favorites because I couldn’t decide!

Special Offer {when you HOST a Party}

Scentsy is currently running a special host exclusive incentive, but Ashley is making it even sweeter!!  She’s throwing in her own personal special – host a party in June and SHE will purchase the host exclusive (awesome bag and products in the image below) for you!!  Meaning you’ll receive a $70 gift absolutely FREE!!

You can host your party in your home – you girlfriends that are at home with the kids this summer are dying for a night out!!  Or if you’re on the go too much this summer, host a “Basket Party” instead!  This is where Ashley will give you a bag of scent sample, sample products and catalogs.  You can pass it around to your friends – carry it to the office, the pool, family reunions, summer camps or games with the kids – anywhere you might go in about two weeks.  If that’s not your style, you can even host an online party if you prefer.

Three options – one with cleaning & hanging out with girlfriends and two with no cleaning at all, but you STILL get all the great hostess benefits.     But you have to host your party this month (and make sure you mention Cumming Local) – so get to planning!!

Special Offer {When you Shop this month}

There are so many wonderful warmers to choose from when you start shopping the Scentsy catalog.  It took me a long time to narrow down the one I was going to get.  But the June Warmer of the Month might make it easier for you to decide!!  Just in time for the 4th of July, order the “God Bless” warmer and scent of the month (BananaBerry) for 10% off!   And I love that this warmer can be used for lots of holidays throughout the year – or of course any day of the year!  Click here to learn more.
