PIZZAWIRE—Domino's is trying to bribe customers to snitch on non-compliant franchisees, which sounds like a pretty abrasive and humiliating tactic, but maybe it's worth it for free pizza? The company is also launching a smartwatch app. [Freep/DBiz]

RESTAURANT WEEKS—Royal Oak Restaurant Week is happening now through Friday. Grab lunch or dinner for $15, $25, or $35. The neighborhood's Buffalo Wild Wing's also debuted today. [EaterWire]

THE CRITICS—What really irritates the Detroit News' seasoned restaurant critic Molly Abraham? Polyester-coated napkins, weird ingredients, really heavy menus, cliché descriptions, and a whole lot more. [Social D]

EVENTWIRE—The Oakland added a second night of collaboration dinners between Chartreuse chef Doug Hewitt and The Root's James Rigato. The $75 meal includes four courses and a cocktail pairing. Make a reservation at 248-291-5295. [EaterWire]

GROCERYWIRE—Rose's Fine Food is hosting a fundraising taco dinner on March 5 to support the opening of Chene Street Grocers, a store that will supply local produce and bulk dry goods on the East Side. Reservations and a $30 donation are required. [EaterWire]
