Party pizza. Conveniently located in the shadow of the Bloomfield, New Jersey train station, Blue Steel Pizza Company is an upscale pizzeria and event space. If you have the budget, the spacious upstairs dining area is an ideal private party venue. And with a menu full of innovative cocktails and creative Detroit style pizza, Blue Steel has catering covered as well. The decorative main dining room and makeshift outdoor seating areas make any meal at Blue Steel an event. Being the family, the team, a date or just an appetite and Blue Steel will hook you up with deep dish, crisp crusted, tasty pizza. Layered with high quality ingredients and so much brick cheese that it gets fried to the outer edge, each signature pie is an adventure. I recommend getting something more conventional like a classic cheese or pepperoni and something more creative like the bacon, potato, and béchamel infused Little Neck Clam pie. If you like the ingredients, you will like the pie. I know if I lived in the area I would be a Blue Steel Pizza Company regular.

1. Terry Jinn, Alexis Saarela, Bea, and Emmy have their halloween costumes picked out. They're going as Eyore, Piglet, Tigger, and Pooh respectively. Alexis and I seem to be the only ones at the table that watched the live action Pooh Corner when we were kids (and knew someone with the Disney channel).
2. Cameron thinks I eat pizza everyday for a living. He seemed to look up to me so I didn't have the heart to tell him he's wrong.
3. Kevin Hines was part of my very first pizza month day (10/1/2002). It was nice to see him 19 years ago. I want to think we haven't changed a bit.
4. Cat Kemp comes prepared...two minutes into dinner, she broke out the markers and paper which entertained all the kids!
