CiCi's Pizza: Buffet costs $2.99 on Thursday, Sept. 6

I have no shame in admitting I'd attend a romantic date at CiCi's Pizza. That's why I'm glad the restaurant is celebrating Guest Appreciation Day on Thursday, Sept. 6. The buffet costs just $2.99 all day. Columbus locations are at 1660 Whittlesey Road and 1931 Auburn Ave.

Let me know if you need to borrow a pair of elastic-waist pants.

I called to confirm the restaurants' Thursday hours. Employees told me that Whittlesey Road location is open 9:30 a.m.-10:30 p.m., while the Auburn Avenue location is open 10:30 a.m.-10 p.m.

You might want to call one more time to check. Call 706-317-3332 for Whittlesey Road; 706-569-9096 for Auburn Avenue.

What makes CiCi's special? Well, there's the frequent presence of mac and cheese pizza, which is pretty awesome. I also enjoy how buffet employees often approach your table and ask if you'd like a custom-made pizza. Finally, I have a serious weak spot for the desserts.

Going to Guest Appreciation Day at CiCi's Pizza? Cool, I'll see you there. But before you grab a slice of your favorite pizza, please remember these simple buffet etiquette tips:

Do give at least the illusion of being healthy. That means resisting an urge to cover your pizza in Alfredo sauce.

Don't forget a simple food mantra I learned in kindergarten: "The one you touch is the one you take."

Do remember your fellow diners might be subtly judging your plates.

Don't believe the friend who says Guest Appreciation Day requires a three-plate minimum.

That said...let's eat!
