Help celebrate the Little Caesars Lady’s birthday!

Little Caesars LadySurely by now you all know who the Dancing Little Caesars Lady is, right? Right? (If you need a refresher, she’s the woman who works for Little Caesars who you see on the corner of 3rd Street and Reed Market, dancing and rocking with the Little Caesars promo signage.) If you’ve seen her, you know.

Well, it appears her birthday is coming up this weekend, and her daughter wants everyone to help celebrate:

This post is actually from Mary’s daughter Christina. I wanted to let everyone know that Mary, the pizza lady is turning 60 years old this weekend. I traveled from Florida specifically to make her birthday special, but I can’t do it alone, I need everyone’s help. This Saturday, July 18th, the pizza lady will be dancing out on her corner from about 10-10:30am for a couple hours till about 1-2pm. I will be decorating her corner, so you can’t miss it! I will be having a guest book for people to sign and a camera ready to take pictures of everyone with the pizza lady! There is nothing she loves more than making people smile and making them happy, so I know she would love to see everyone and anyone, especially kids and what better way to remember it than with a photo. So please come by to say hello and get a picture taken with the pizza lady!! She’d love to see you! Come help me celebrate my mom’s 60th birthday! Thank you in advance everyone!

That sounds great, so Bend—now you know! Stop by if you can and get your picture taken with Mary and wish her a happy birthday!

(True story: one time we were randomly driving through a neighborhood on the west side, and saw her, mowing her lawn. She had headphones on and was ignoring the world—but she was still dancing! It was awesome.)
