Just a short drive down the road, you will find a delicious pizza […]

Recently, Stephen and I had the chance to check out the newly renovated California Pizza Kitchen at Polaris. I’ve always liked CPK, but, if I am being honest, I haven’t been in a few years. My, oh, my. CPK has changed or maybe I wasn’t remembering what they offer correctly! […]
